The swimming pool of the estate
The space of the swimming pool is designed to allow a happy cohabitation thanks to its various rest areas largely equipped with deckchairs and two very large parasols. It is landscaped at the four corners by massifs including Buis, Hibiscus and Ifs. The Curbstone and beach of the swimming pool have been carried out in an elegant local granite which considerably limits the risk of slipping. A "solar" shower is installed at the edge of the basin to allow you to clean quickly before swimming. The size of the basin (10m X 4m) makes it possible to dive and swim in peace; An electric system of counter current swimming perfects its equipment. Safety is ensured by an alarm system and a secure shutter, but nothing can replace the vigilance of adults. Between May 15 and September 30, the water temperature of the pool benefits from the additional solar panels used to heat (winter) the lodgings and to produce their sanitary water. Daily, the person in charge of the maintenance of the property comes to open the curtain of the pool in the morning and close it in the evening and, at the same time, controls the cleanliness of the water and the basin.
The private tennis court of the estate
The tennis court (in quick) was redone in 2017. It is equipped with an umpire's chair and two spectator seats. A reservation panel with a time badge system allows the occupants of the Manor, the Oustal and the Pichonna to share harmoniously the use of this sporting equipment. Tennis shoes and balls not provided.
The fishing of the estate
Overlooked by a small orchard and surrounded by a few stone banks, our small pond offers an ideal meditation area with beautiful views of the area and the surrounding countryside. Stocked of roaches, of Tench, of some carps and even of pike, only the fishing "no Kill" is allowed from the pontoon designed for this purpose: the catches must therefore be returned to the living water. Needless to say, children can only fish or play under the supervision of an adult, because at the centre the depth reaches 3 meters. Swimming is strictly forbidden. Although recent and probably thanks to the water quality of the sources that feed it, the pond offers abundant flora and fauna: The lovers will be able to observe it at nightfall: ducks, herons and coypu and the contemplatives admire Iris, hyacinths Water, herbaceous, lily and broom.

The tapestry of Aubusson recognized worldwide
Less than 25 minutes by car from the Domaine de Louveraude, the discovery of AUBUSSON is necessary if only to understand how AUBUSSON became the world capital of Tapestry and why UNESCO, in 2019, has inscripted Aubusson tapestry on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity... For six centuries, tapestries have been woven in Aubusson. The purity of the hollow water, sheep wool, dye plants and an existing textile activity have probably facilitated the installation of the first weavers. Becoming Royal Manufacture by Colbert's will, Aubusson owes its international fame to the technique of weaving on a smooth bass craft. This long and meticulous work can only be carried out thanks to the fingering of the weavers and their long years of learning. To discover what is the tapestry of AUBUSSON it is necessary to visit:
· «La Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie », the all new museum tracing five and a half centuries of production in AUBUSSON in a very successful museography. http://www.cite-tapisserie.fr/fr
· « Le Musée des cartons de tapisserie » next to the picturesque Pont de la Terrade (the traditional quarter of the upholsterers for several centuries)
