La Napoule, in the South of France?

Quite by coincidence, a novel I was reading tells me of La Napoule, down there by Nice, and Sainte-Beaume. I had to Google-satellite view it.

There was a complex, of perhaps eight clay courts, not far away, and in the same vicinity a swimming pool. Anybody familiar with it?


------------afterthought------------

Anybody train for the French Open there?

Chateau de la Napoule ...but I doubt this is it... (http://www.lnaf.org/index.html)

The seafront town of La Napoule is centred around an unusual château which was the property of the Counts of Villeneuve until the revolution.....

A LOT of courts around there.

Ten courts and a pool, in a complex, South of the Boulevard de la Taverniere...

...google-satellite view searching everywhere, now I can't find it. :mad:
