The heated and fenced 12m x6m swimming pool
The 12 x 6 metre shared swimming pool is surrounded by 150m2 of decking. The pool has been specifically designed and built with children’s enjoyment in mind and has both a SAFETY FENCE and has LOCKABLE CHILD SAFETY GATE.
The parents are responsible for holding the keys and ensuring the gate is locked when not in use.
The shallow end is only 1.05m deep (i.e. shallower than normal), so young children can stand in the water easily and we have extra wide steps for entry for the ‘not to confident’ to play on and get use to the water.
Please note – the pool, 2-person hot tub & 4-person sauna are shared between our 3 properties, Le Palmier, Le Pressoir and La Pergola.
The swimming pool is heated and a thermal cover is supplied to maintain heat overnight. It is cleaned and monitored every other day to ensure the highest standards of health and hygiene are maintained at all times.
The swimming pool is surrounded by a 1.15m high ‘Norme Francaise’ factory made fence/barrier.
Our pool also has a self-sprung lockable gate. On top off these minimum requirements, we supply coded padlocks for extra peace of mind. To maintain the rigidity of the swimming pool gate we have added extra supports to the posts as these get quite a lot of use each day. There is also a detailed sign attached to the swim gate highlighting further information regarding safety within the pool area.
