Set in its own 270 acre estate, Chateau Marouatte is approached by a steep winding drive.

The grounds include woodland crossed with many walks, pathways lined with wild blackberries and flowers according to the season. Just a short walk from the castle beyond the main gate is a playing field and all-weather tennis court.

The high outer walls with guard towers at each end enclose the outer bailey of the castle. Enter through the main gate which leads to a large courtyard with dovecote and parking. To the left is the Troubadour Wing with bedrooms and ballroom. Walk over the causeway of the dry moat to the inner courtyard of the castle. Through an archway, above which a selection of coats of arms are displayed, a vaulted cloister leads to the formal gardens and terrace. Views of the surrounding countryside are breathtaking.

Beautiful, new chez lounges by the pool.
Leading from the terrace through a wrought iron gate is a further grass lined garden with yew avenue and lily pond. Here the swimming pool (approx 12m x 5m with a shallow end and deep end) and sun terrace are set against a backdrop of crenelated towers and pointed castle spires. The pool is fitted with an alarm and is heated during the summer months, May to September.

Also in the outer bailey is the old winery, no longer in use, but still features the huge vats and barrels of an earlier time.
