Pool and Garden
The heated pool is open (and heated to a guaranteed 28°C) from Easter to November. It measures 10m x 5m with depths from 1m to 1.8 m and has roman steps for easy access in and out. It is fully enclosed for child safety and has lockable double action security gates and an alarm which corresponds the French security regulations. The water is heated to a guaranteed 28°c from Easter to start November. The pool is situated in a natural enclosure, which is sheltered and a real sun trap. It is also very private.
The pool benefits from a reclinable all weather cover which can be pushed on and off for indoor or outdoor swims. Therefore comfortable swimming is possible whatever the weather or ambient temperature. With the abri cover on it is like swimming in an indoor pool but the cover can be completely rolled off the pool to enjoy the pool uncovered in hot, sunny weather. The cover also keeps the water temperature very warm, over 8°c higher than it would be without a cover, so it’s very comfortable to swim in during the Spring and Autumn months, which is not the case for pools without an all weather cover.
Ample sunbeds, cushions and parasols are provided for guests to use for relaxing around the pool.
The pool can be floodlit at night for late night swims.
There is a large selection of well maintained bikes, both for adults (some with baby/toddler seats) and children which are available for use free of charge. A disused railway track is less than 1km away and is ideal for traffic free cycling, running and walking. Local maps are available on request.
Separate patio and barbecue areas
Every cottage has its own patio area with a beautiful view out to the garden. Barbecues, tables, chairs and parasols are provided for each cottage.
The 2 acres of lawned garden are ideal for families to picnic in, or play sports such as cricket, rounders, football and badminton.
There is a trampoline (3m diameter) with safety net and a play area for young children,with swings and a slide.
At the back of the pool, there is a 10m x 4m boules court near a small orchard, with apple pear, plum, peach and hazelnut trees.
