Pétanque is a form of boules where the goal is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally “piglet”) while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. Also referred to as Jeu de Boules, the game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel. We have a Petanque court next to the swimming pool, which is shaded by old Mulberry trees that hark back to the days when the manor was a silk farm.



In the swimming pool in the garden: salt water and good temperatures from Easter until the end of October.
