Our choice to respect man and his environment is reflected not only by the decision to adopt organic farming methods and renewable sources of energy, but also in the way we constantly monitor the water in our pool and meticulously control the products used for its maintenance. Powered by photovoltaic panels, the purifier is continuously used to filter the water, which means that the water is always moving and the emission of chlorine is reduced to a minimum. The pool, which is immersed in the green of the garden, measures 14 X 7 meters. On the poolside, there are sun loungers, deckchairs and large sun umbrellas. Small children will enjoy playing in the playground next to the pool. If you want to dine outdoors, opposite the pool, beneath a pretty pergola, there is a barbecue area, equipped with large grill, tables and chairs. The pool is open from June 1st to September 30th.
