Natural pool

Salvan - Les Marécottes

It's impossible to turn down an invitation to a one-of-a-kind swim in the crystal clear waters of this natural swimming pool! After admiring the architecture of this pool cut into the rocks, swimmers can immerse themselves in the magic of its extraordinary setting. Every stroke is an invigorating, unique swimming experience, which takes place across the 70 metres of this astonishing and poetic natural pool.

Harmoniously integrated into the surrounding nature, the temperature of the water is very pleasant, with solar heating providing the pool with all the heat it needs. In summer, the average water temperature is between 24 and 27 degrees, making the urge to swim absolutely irresistible!


The natural swimming pool is open from June to the 11th of September.
