Fun in the pool

Heated Swimming Pool
La Croix has a 6m x 12m swimming pool with large Roman steps; sun-loungers, parasols and a shaded sitting area. The pool is heated to at least 25°C in Summer. The pool depth is 1m – 1.7m at its deepest.

In line with regulations in the Charente, the pool is chlorinated and chemical balance is checked twice a day. The pool is also tested officially for chemical balance once a month in the summer.

There is a child’s paddling pool and a toilet in the pool enclosure.

To maintain the pool area and to give you the best possible experience, we close the area each night at 22:30 and re-open at 08:30. 

For the safety of our guests we kindly ask guests never to bring glass of any sort into the Pool area (plastic cups are provided in the cottages and pool area).
