Swimming pool

In accordance with French law, we have installed lockable cloth so that the entrances to the swimming pool can be closed off. However, this can create a false sense of security. NEVER leave small children unattended at the pool. Parents (tenants) remain responsible for the use of the pool in all cases. The homeowner can therefore not be held responsible for possible accidents. If children use the swimming pool, ensure permanent supervision.
1 x per week the maintenance man will come by to clean the pool. This takes about half an hour. He may not be denied access.
Every day, a wireless robot cleans the pool between 07 & 09 in the morning or between 22 & 23 in the evening. It is allowed to swim in the pool during cleaning.
Please store all pool toys daily. Everyone likes to start a day at the pool where everything is clean and tidy.
The pool is heated by the sun. This means that only in the summer months the temperature rises above 20°.
