May we assume this is not what you are looking for as it is only open during the summer?

milseain, thanks for confirming that and the extra information.

The Normandy swimming clubs affiliated to the FFN (French Swimming Federation) have a web site here:

http://www.normandie-ffnatation.com/

Drilling down to the Eure Département gives this link:

http://www.natation-eure.com/

and the list of clubs:

http://www.natation-eure.com/?page=clubs

The nearest to Verneuil-sur-Avre seems to be Breteuil sur Iton, about 15 km to the North:

www.natation-eure.com/?page=fiche_club&cl=12

There is an indoor swimming pool at this locality, although no details about size, but the club seems to be active, judging by the regional rankings.

Hopefully, your daughter will be able to use her French to make contact, but if you have any problems with the language, feel free to re-post or PM me. Hope that helps and you daughter enjoys her time in France.

Very pleased to help.

>>> are you from Normandy <<<

Unfortunately not, although here in the UK we have close ties through a village twinning to the west of Verneuil. I used to live near Versailles and hope go back one day. Cependent, je Google en français assez bien.
