Holiday homes with a swimming pool are highly popular and whilst they may come at a premium, they can provide hours of entertainment for the children come rain or shine. Having the exclusive use of a private pool to take a dip in before breakfast or at the end of the day is a popular facility, particularly for couples who enjoy a little privacy. However, the social element that shared facilities can offer for both children and adults alike is an added bonus, as is the opportunity of a little exercise to keep you fit whilst you are away putting on those holiday pounds!
Tips: Properties with swimming pools are highly sought after so make sure you book in advance. Check with the owner if you have sole or shared use of the pool and whether there are any time limitations on its use (both at certain times of the year and on a daily basis). Whilst owners may provide towels for use in the cottage, they may not provide towels for pool use, so double check beforehand or take your own. Don’t forget to pack the swimming aids for the little ones and make sure children are supervised at all times when around water.
