Piscine de Saint-Gervais

Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

The complex is clean, modern and well-kept and at an altitude of circa 850 meters (2,800 feet). The pool area is light with large picture windows and views of the Alps.

The main pool is 25m, 6 lanes and at a temperature of 28.2º C. In addition to the 25m pool, there is a large shallow play pool and an outdoor pool (closed in winter) plus saunas. I swam in the early evening (17:30-18:30) in early March and the facility was busy. The main pool was divided as follows: Two lanes for school lessons; two lanes for lane swimming, and the remainder a general play area (this may vary as a day or two previously it appeared that there were four lanes for lane swimming and the remainder for play).

The lanes were separated by wave suppression barriers which gave the water a smooth feel despite surrounding hectic activity. There varied between two and four swimmers in my lane. The lanes are not graded in terms of speed and, other than following an anti-clockwise circulation pattern, lane discipline was almost nonexistent. Having said that, I did manage to complete part of my normal routine at a somewhat relaxed pace without apparent undue duress to myself or fellow swimmers. I felt it wisest to forego the remaining, more vigorous part of my routine.
