If you have a beautiful view to take advantage of, an overflow pool not only looks fabulous, but keeps the pool surface ultra clean very efficiently. They are not always feasible though, and Villa Image has normal edged pools of all shapes and sizes and mirrored pools that overflow on three or four sides.
The addition of an electronic solid security cover when installed during the building of the pool, isn’t as expensive as trying to add it on afterwards, although this can be done very successfully. We have even built an external pool cover housing that doubles up as a fire pit for parties!
Equally, security fencing can be made to be less obtrusive with a little forethought and design planning. New style pool alarms are available now, which are built into a new pool, thus avoiding the ugly alarm boxes sitting on the side.
The addition of a 20m² pool house can provide an essential outdoor space for summer living, and in most cases, can be built with a simple Déclaration des Travaux instead of a building permit.
The addition of pool heating will mean that you can use your pool comfortably, all year round if you want to, rather than the two to three months of a non-heated pool and this facility can, in most cases, be easily added to an existing pool, most economically either by heat pump or solar heating.
The use of a stone mosaic can add interest to steps, which can also serve as a very popular "beach" area or to the base of the pool.
And of course, pools can also be very successfully renovated, which is a job that we do very often. When you purchase a property, the 20 or 30 year old swimming pool that comes with it can be slightly off-putting, but these pools can be rejuvenated easily by re-tiling inside and around the pool, and installing new, up-to-date equipment.
