Enough to enjoy the comings and goings of beautiful swimmers from the lawn.

Its 25m outdoor pool is idyllic and deliciously “ no kids ” since a small 12m pool next to it is reserved for them (phew!). And don't forget the superb solarium , ideal for reading in the fresh air, just like on vacation. All for 3 francs six sous.
