Fancy a relaxing afternoon by a pool? Then this might be just the place for you!
Visitors to Chez Robineau have shared access to our 12m x 6m swimming pool with large surrounding terrace and decking, plus a covered seating area in case you need to get into the shade.
There are sun loungers and deckchairs by the pool, providing plenty of areas to sunbathe for sun worshippers. Pool towels are provided in each of the gîtes.
The pool is heated by an air-to-water heat exchanger that endeavours to keep the water at a constant 27°C. This relies on the outside ambient air temperature being warm enough to provide a little heat, so on cooler days the water may be a little below this but rarely drops below 25°C.
Sanitation is achieved via a chlorinator, which uses electrolysis to convert salt to chlorine and keep the water sparkling. This allows chlorine levels to be kept lower and provides water that doesn't sting the eyes like a normal chlorine pool. There is also a pH-doser that keeps the water pH level balanced to make swimming less harsh on the skin.
The pool is around 1.4m deep throughout its length with Roman steps at one end.
Please note that the pool is not supervised, so please don't let children or those with limited swimming skills use the pool unattended.
Access to the pool and terrace is via 3 steps or across the grass, for those with pushchairs, prams or limited mobility.
In the evening, the pool and terrace is lit automatically from around 9pm to midnight, proving a pleasant setting for conversation and perhaps a last drink before bedtime.
