It's always lovely to welcome someone who's new to the area - it often delights our visitors to find that such a beautiful part of France really is unspoiled, and that it's very possible to enjoy a holiday even in July without the hustle & bustle of crowds in such a peaceful environment. We're pleased that you enjoyed the pool as much as you did, and it's no trouble to make sure it's ready for early-morning swimmers - you should be able to enjoy the pool at any time of the day (or night!!) We look forward to your next visit to unwind with us.
