Airports: Nice is technically the nearest airport - just over an hours drive. Genoa (Genova) airport is also very close - 1.5 hours drive. Turin airport is also within easy reach at approximately 2.5 hours drive.
The swimming pool is a salt water pool (only a tenth as salty as the sea!) which generates its own chlorine as needed, hence having a much lower chlorine level than normal pools. On reacting with bacteria the chlorine turns back to salt. The pool is therefore ecologically friendly, and is far better in smell, taste and on the eyes than a normal chlorine pool. The pool is large (4.5m by 11.5m) - 1m deep in the shallow end and 1.8m in the deep end. A diving board enhances the pool. The pool is located on the top terrace to benefit from the panoramic views.
