Pool in mid-June and scorpions


We will be visiting the Luberon region with our 2.5 year old toddler. We were planning on renting a villa with a pool but is the water too cold for a toddler at that time? I know the temperatures will be warm but the water can be colder - thoughts?

We would consider renting in a village if the pool won't be much use. We are also very worried about scorpions with our son running around, so maybe staying in a village (less shrubbery) without a pool is worth it to avoid scorpions?

Would love to get some thoughts.

Thanks so very much and happy new year!

That law on pool security was brought in a couple of years ago because of the unfortunate number of child drownings. However I am sure it is true there are still renegades who do not obey the law and i have read last season in the local press of one or two fatalities on the Riviera.

Re the scorpions some further lore below from the web about the 3 local varieties. Probably the most intimate way of coming in contact is to leave your shoes outside on the terrace overnight!
