Heated Swimming Pool:

Located in the hamlet’s orchard area, set amidst landscaped gardens and mature fruit trees, the 12.2m x 6.1m heated swimming pool is for the exclusive use of guests staying at Le Helleguy, in La Chaumiere and La Grange.

Guests from the two cottages are able to enjoy the pool’s generous dimensions which provide ample swimming space for everyone.


Cottages & Heated Pool #15


A large tiled sun terrace with luxury sun-loungers, cushions, umbrellas etc. enables bathers and non-bathers alike, to relax in comfort by the pool. Guests are provided with waffle house robes which can be used when bathing and/or when enjoying Complementary Therapies and Beauty Treatments.

The swimming pool and its surrounding gardens remain in full sun throughout the year (not just during the summer months). Therefore whether choosing to holiday in Spring, during the summer period, or during the Autumn October half term break, you can be guaranteed that on a sunny day, you can bathe by the pool, in a position of full sunshine.

Ample sun loungers are provided to cater for the maximum capacity of the two cottages, ensuring that all guests can enjoy relaxing in the gardens and/or by the pool, simultaneously.

Pool Features :

The pool is a rectangular shape (ideal for swimming) and can be accessed at the shallow end, via wide Roman steps. The steps add a further 1.52m length to the pool’s existing 12.2m length.

The depth at the shallow end is 1m, which gradually slopes down to a maximum at the deep end, of 1.8m. A safety ledge, 0.5m wide and 1m below the water surface, surrounds the deep end of the pool.

Cottages & Heated Pool #18


A telescopic shelter 18m long & 8m wide and ranging from a minimum of 1.4m to 2m high is used to cover the pool at night.

The shelter is retractable to enable open air swimming on hot sunny days and can provide sheltered swimming, out of season or should the weather be inclement.

Using both a heat exchange water heater and the telescopic shelter ensures that the water (and air temperature within the closed shelter) can be heated to a comfortable temperature for early and late season usage – from 1st April through to mid November.

The pool has the additional option of floodlighting, which enables guests to swim during the evenings and at night. The telescopic shelter provides excellent protection from insects which might otherwise have become a nuisance, being attracted by the floodlighting.

The pool’s water balance is controlled automatically by a high-tech saltwater purification system, which together with our regular monitoring ensures optimum bathing conditions at all times – no haphazard mixing of chemicals, or smarting eyes due with high levels of chlorine, or lingering after smells.

Cottages & Heated Pool #19


Pool Security:

From a security point of view, professionally installed around the swimming pool are two of four swimming pool security systems recognised by the French standards association (AFNOR). Each has a certificate of conformity to the latest regulations (P90-306 - Barrier/Fences and P90-309 - Shelters/Verandas).

Made of the same materials, the telescopic shelter, fence and gate security systems are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and blend in naturally to the surrounding environment. The additional levels of security provide reassuring peace of mind for those visiting with young children.
