Note of pool safety
As parents ourselves, we understand that pool safety is of paramount importance. We take this part of holidaying with us extremely seriously.
The swimming pool, hot tub & sauna is surrounded by a 1.15 metre high 'Norme Francaise' factory made fence/barrier. It has vertical bars to meet with anti-climbing regulations, be aware that some holiday home owners opt for the cheaper fences that do not conform to the French regulations as they have horizontal bars.
Our pool area also has a self-sprung lockable gate. On top of 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. The pool area is open from 10am to 8pm daily.
The swimming pool is heated and a thermal cover is supplied to maintain heat overnight. The swimming pool is cleaned and monitored regularly to ensure the highest standards of health and hygiene are maintained.
The swimming pool, 2-person hot tub & 2-person sauna are shared between our 3 properties, Le Palmier, Le Pressoir and La Pergola.
