Finally … A Swimming Pool !!

The above ground swimming poolHaving a rental villa in a glorioius and unspoilt countryside is great. It being set amongst 2 bronze age sites is just unique. But waiting for the bureaucracy to let you put up an above ground pool is infernal : 2 YEARS !! The time , money and efforts (not to mention ” la santa pazienza”) to get here was tremendous.

Still, the paperwork is sorted and we will start building the platform next week. The huge kit itself shall not take more than 2 days (They say 1 but just like Ikea ‘s flat pack furniture, it doesn’t matter how great you are at DIY or building , it always takes longer.)

It will be an above ground pool as there can be no digging as we are on an archeological site. It comes equipped with a salt electrolysis system. The advantage of that system is that whilst the salt content is less than a teardrop, it works as a comprehensive cleaner and disinfectant. No need for 5 different chemicals that would be harmful to your body and the environment. Instead, your eyes remain clear, your skin and hair soft and you can water your plants at the end of the season with it too !

The pool is an octogonal shape and measures 5m70 x 4m00 x 1m30.

So basically, it will be open for our 1st guests in May.

That will be 1 refreshing swim for the days one cannot be bothered to go the beach …
