When the sun is shining, why not enjoy a glass of something bubbly by the pool or a spot of fishing on the lake? That is, if you don't mind sharing it with the beavers! The lake within the grounds houses a family of beavers - why not grab the binoculars and try and spot them?

Squashy, comfy sofas line the lounge areas - an ideal space to relax, whether you delve into a novel or flick through the channels on the Apple TV. The ground floor turrets house a playroom and study area. Fabulous little nooks for kids to escape to - the ultimate hide and seek venue.

Finding inspiration will be a doddle, gorgeous French cuisine, fresh breads or even a bowl of nettle soup using fresh ingredients picked straight from the estate. Figs plucked from the trees, plums still warm from the sun or hazelnuts from the orchard embody the luxury that Chateau Tournesol offers.

With a whole world of adventures and places to explore from the doorstep, you certainly won't be lost for things to do. However, if you can't bear to leave the comfort of your castle, find your favourite spot and cosy up in front of one of the roaring fires with a hot toddy.
