Villa, Chateau or farmhouse - why a pool by their side makes for a great holiday

I would like to book a villa with a pool in X,Y,Z" has been the most common sentence used by customers in my 30 years in the business. 

Kidney shaped, infinity pool, a deep end for diving (a particular feature in Italian villas), beach entrance for young kids, shallow swiming pool ends for toddlers, large enough pools to swim a length, jacuzzi jet pools for massage, round, square - you name the type of pool and we will find it for you in our portfolio of 500 villas in France, Italy and Morocco.

A swimming pool offers my clients exclusivity, peace and the complete liberty to choose when to swim and for how long, something not enjoyed for example at a hotel.

It is quite spectacular to be floating in your private infinity pool or to have the 'difficult' choice each day as to whether to wander out and explore our great holiday locations in Italy, France and Morocco or just step  the few paces to your private sun lounger, toe dangling in the pool in anticipation of a dip later on!

Some of our pools in more Northern parts of France have pool covers and some villas have heated pools to extend the season. Many other outdoor villas have the option to be heated - again helping to extend the season - avoid the crowds but still have the chance to use the pool!

Pool villa holidays are such a popular choice for a family holiday. Its a good opportunity for parents to relax on the sunlounger or under the pergola with a book (off course keeping one watchful eye on proceedings!) and let the children have fun. A few pool toys added into the mix, against a backdrop of blue sky makes for a truly a memorable holiday. Many a child has made their first unaided swim in a Quality Villa.

We describe the unique features of our pools from the pool size to unique features such as salt water pools.

Have a look at our  selection of villas with spectacular pools on our pinterest board - I feel sure these will whet your appetite for a villa holiday.

Best wishes,
