Sitting on its own sheltered terrace overlooking fields and woods – this heated pool. with its gentle interior corner steps, makes a perfect centrepiece for your holiday. The salt-treatment system means – no more reddened eyes! The water remains silky soft and does not damage your hair or skin as you might find with a chlorine-pool.
The pool is heated from (usually) mid May to the end of September. Whether you fancy a whole day relaxing on the pool terrace or a quick dip after sightseeing you will find the pool soon becomes a favourite spot. Sunbeds are available around the pool.
Our son and his girlfriend operate a Bike Hire Service and so we can arrange bikes for you . In summer it will be necessary to book these as early as possible. Bikes for children are also available. See www.velo-plus.net We do have a couple of elderly bikes at the gite that you can use without hiring. However for anyone wishing to do any real biking we recommend hiring some more serious bikes. We do have some good local routes planned out for you, ranging from a serious day-trial for the physically fit to the tootle out for lunch (and back).
