The natural-swimming pool
More than a traditional natural swimming pool, ours is rather a “bio-lake”, whose area of about 150 sq. metres is composed of a bathing part, an area with purifying water plants and a separate small filter-area.
Water coming from the lake falls into the filter-area where it is purified by the roots of water plants and the special rocks lying on the bottom of the pool. Then it is pumped to a brook, which brings it back full of oxygen to the lake.
This natural swimming pool or “bio-lake” is an integrated ecosystem rich in local plants and animals.
Water is therefore naturally purified thanks to the very same ecosystem as a natural river.
The advantages of this environment – free from any chemical product or artificial element – is twofold: it fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape, and the sweet smell of the water makes bathing particularly pleasant.
