There’s one thing that we all love when we’re on holiday and that’s messing about on and in the water. Whether it’s toddlers splashing in the shallows or bigger kids playing on water chutes and with beachballs, heading to the pool or the beach is a vital part of the day. And when they’re older, the children can join the grown-ups swimming for exercise as well as relaxation – preferably in a pool where you can count off the lengths or widths and feel smug at the end of your session! Swimming is a great way to exercise gently as you’re supported by the water, so it’s great for people of all ages and abilities – while the kids will be jumping and diving so much they won’t even realise it’s good for them! Also, we have lifeguards on duty at all of our campsite pools – indoor and outdoor – so you can relax knowing everyone is being looked after while they play.
Most of our holiday villages in France have outdoor pools and paddling pools, with fun extras like slides. But many also have an indoor or covered pool for those who need to dive in come rain or shine – handy if you’re swimming to keep fit and don’t want to overheat in the sun while you plough up and down. Playtime in an indoor pool also means no sand or mud so the kids can have good, clean fun while you don’t have to deal with gritty feet, swimwear and towels…
