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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Notes

There is also a 50m x 15m, 6 lane, outdoor, seasonal pool at this location.
Use of available steam rooms and sauna facilities cost extra. Swim trunks are not allowed, swimmers must wear fitted swimsuits (e.g., Speedos®), which are available for rent.
A carte d'hôte is a guest card that should be given to everyone who stays at any form of tourist lodging in the valley. If you're staying with family or friends, i.e., not at a commercial guest accommodation, you can purchase a carte for €10.00 per person at the town hall or any tourist office. See the 2018/2019, bi-lingual FLYER for more information.

Facility Reviews

This is a great complex with a 25m indoor pool, which means you can swim all year and during the summer thunderstorms. The 50m, outdoor pool has the most spectacular view in the world - Mt. Blanc in your face! Both pools are clear and cool. The indoor pool gets crowded in the afternoon in the summer months. They have three lanes for lap swimmers in the indoor pool. The outdoor pool is 100% laned.
The water felt like 79º-80ºF (26º-27ºC).

I can certainly confirm the earlier review regarding the outdoor pool.
Other practical info: lockers and changing stalls are provided in the main locker room. The lockers function with electronic PINS input by user, so no lock needed. You should bring your own towel. At the time of my visit, the indoor pool was closed and access to the outdoor pool was via a roundabout route mostly on a dirt/grass path. Don't despair if you encounter the same, just keep going and you'll get to the pool deck. There are feet washing pools just outside the building and pool deck, so you don't need to wear footwear outside the locker room.

Great facility, very clean pool! Pull-buoys and kickboards are provided. Anything you need for swimming can be purchased from a vending machine with cash or a credit card: men's, women's, and children's swimsuits in all sizes, swim caps, earplugs, nose clips, and goggles in various sizes.
