Large houses with swimming pools

A day at the beach is always a nice way to while away the hours whilst on holiday, but nothing really beats lounging by the pool. For those looking to book one of the large houses within our portfolio, you might want to consider one of our fabulous properties with swimming pools; perfect for the ultimate, relaxing retreat.

Loggos Villa, Paxos

Located on the picturesque island of Paxos, this beautiful large house is the perfect retreat for a holiday en mass. Whether you’re a group of friends travelling together or are holidaying with your extended family, Loggos Villa has enough space to house everyone nicely! This pretty stone built residence can sleep us to fourteen guests and has been thoughtfully planned to ensure those staying have an abundance of space to ensure a relaxing break is had by all…

Divided into three separate parts, each section includes its own fully equipped kitchen, sitting room, bathrooms and bedrooms, with the ideal outdoor living space that allows everyone to get together  to socialise in its delightful grounds.

The swimming pool is at the centre of Loggos Villa social space; impressively large, it’s surrounded by a paved area that’s perfect for lounging and offers enough room for all of those staying to gather around. At the top of the garden lies a large table, designed to accommodate the whole group at mealtimes; this area also houses a fantastic BBQ and pizza oven, as well as gas hobs, running water and dining accessories.

Situated in the tiny village of Fontana, Loggos beach is a mere 2kms away. Boats are available for hire, offering visitors the chance to explore the coves along the island’s east coast. Loggos itself is well equipped with all the amenities you’d need; there are three tavernas, three supermarkets and a bakery famed for its tasty, fresh produce.

Domaine Escudes, Toulouse

Once owned by the Duc of Toulouse, this beautiful former hunting lodge in the southwest of France is the perfect destination for families wishing to enjoy a holiday within safe and luxurious surroundings. Thoughtfully refurbished, the house can sleep up to fourteen quite comfortably, with an additional sofa bed that can house another two guests. There is also a nicely decorated lounge, impressively sized kitchen and a large dining room that can seat all guests, if the house is at full capacity.

Set within 100 acres of mature parkland, the Domaine Escudes is surrounded by trees, shrubs and characterful plum orchards, with a canal running alongside the house. The canal is separated from the house by a fence, but it can be accessed and is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic walk.

A stand-out feature of the house is its outdoor solar-heated swimming pool which is also alarmed; an inviting space, there’s a bar, large umbrellas, table and chairs and an array of water toys available to use. Nearby is a separate pool house, plus games room which houses a snooker and ping pong table, as well as football table and a number of other games.

Outside kids can enjoy using the trampoline, the park and play area, which includes swings, slides and a zip wire and the use of some bikes. Other games facilities include a tennis and badminton court, so you won’t be short of activities!

At mealtimes, choose between one of two outside terraces and dine under the stars or relax around the large wooden table in the dining room that’s situated inside the property.

A great location, Domaine Escudes is nestled along the fringes of a delightful hamlet and just five miles from the beautiful market town of Beaumont de Lomagne and less than an hour’s drive from Toulouse airport.
