This is an innovative pool on a barge in the Seine. It is a bit of a trek from the nearest metro station but a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. It can get busy, especially in the August Parisian weather so we...More

Great place to enjoy a swim whilst in Paris. In summer the roof is opened making it perfect for sunbathing as well.

A swimming-pool on (or should I say "upon") the river Seine... tempting. The problem is that the pool is tiny, and so overcrowded that it is almost impossible to swim without bumping into someone else every 5 seconds. And really, it is expensive for what...More

In the morning, on weekdays, it isn't crowded. It's never empty because it's Paris and this is a really cool pool, but in the morning there are always less people.
