A large sun deck area around the pool is furnished with sun loungers and sunshades, tables and chairs and a pool shower. A barbecue is available for al fresco cooking.
Being south facing, and protected from the north, La Tuilerie is a natural sun trap, and those who enjoy the sun will certainly enjoy it here. Being slightly elevated, the view down the valley from La Tuilerie is across open fields, and there is plenty to interest natural history lovers.
