The most beautiful swimming pools in Paris

With this nice weather and the heat coming quickly, we would like to take a dip in a nice cool pool ! And as we are in Paris for a few weeks, here is our selection of the 3 most beautiful pools to stroll in!

1. The Pontoise swimming pool

This swimming pool in the 5th arrondissement is known for its historical value. Indeed, its buildings (built in 1933) are classified as historical monuments. It was also made famous by Jacques Cousteau with his diving suit tests.

What do we like? The possibility of night baths and its large 33-metre pool.

It costs about 5 euros to enter.

2. The Butte aux Cailles swimming pool

Another swimming pool classified as a historical monument ! It is one of the most famous swimming pools in Paris with its Art Nouveau façade.

Why do we like it? For its spring water supply and its low price : 3 euros.

3. Josephine Baker Pool

Finally, Josephine Baker. Located in the 13th arrondissement, this floating pool has solariums and a 25-metre pool. Very popular with Parisians for its beautiful view of Paris and the Seine, its entrance fee is 3 euros.

4. The other emblematic swimming pools

Paris has many swimming pools, but if we had to add a few to our selection it would be :

  • The Keller swimming pool in the 15th arrondissement
  • Château Landon and Catherine Lagatu in the 10th arrondissement

Finally, we also love the Molitor swimming pool, but it’s quite a budget! And you, what are your favourite pools?

Swimming pools: the regulations in force

Are you lucky enough to have a pool in your rental property? That’s a great asset! But have you checked that you are in order?

1. Mandatory equipment

Whatever the size of your pool, and whether it is in-ground or semi in-ground, you must install at least one of the following 4 pieces of equipment:

  • a protective barrier
  • an audible alarm system
  • a cover
  • a cover that completely covers the pool

Thanks to this equipment, you will protect the people coming to your house and you will protect yourself from an accident.

2. Fraud, what are the risks?

Here we assume that your pool is already built and that you have completed the necessary administrative formalities. We will only talk about the risks if you do not install the necessary equipment.

If you do not install the equipment, you risk a fine of up to 45,000 euros. But beware, it is up to the seller of your pool to provide you with a technical information note on safety equipment. If he fails to do so, he risks the same fine.

Apart from the financial aspect, if an accident could have been avoided with this equipment, you risk a court case in which you will lose and a tragedy on your conscience.

Now that you know everything, make the most of what your pool will bring you! And if you are still struggling to attract customers, here are some tips on how to get them to come!
