The best hotels with outdoor pool in Paris and its surroundings

Had to cancel your trip to the sun because of tourist restrictions? Don’t panic, some luxury Parisian hotels offer alternatives that will make you forget the pools and turquoise water of Bali. A look at the best hotels with outdoor pools in the French capital.


This summer, with the various restrictions imposed on international tourism to curb the pandemic, such as the American Travel Ban, it is unfortunately not possible in the state to fly to enjoy the pools of five-star hotels in Miami. However, there is no need to leave the capital to enjoy luxurious vacations and outdoor pools.


Hotel Molitor Paris



The Molitor Hotel is a sumptuous five-star hotel that boasts one of the most mythical pools in Paris, which boasts of being open until 10pm. Inaugurated in 1929 by Olympic swimmers Aileen Riggin Soule and Johnny Weissmuller, the pool of the Hotel Molitor in Paris includes a 50-meter pool in the open air, and a second, covered, 33-meter pool. Legend has it that it was in this pool that the bikini first appeared in 1946. The place regularly hosted galas, fashion shows, and was willingly transformed in the winter to allow French skaters to train for the Winter Olympic Games.


The pool of the Mercure Demeure de Campagne Parc du Coudray



Near the capital, in Coudray-Montceaux, the Mercure Demeure de Campagne Parc du Coudray‘s swimming pool is the ideal place for vacationers in need of adventure. The luxurious establishment offers 7 tree climbing courses and zip lines, as well as a large heated outdoor pool. Discover all the charm and serenity of the French countryside just minutes from Paris. According to the management, the place is described as a “true haven of peace where nature and our numerous activities will make you enjoy every moment“. The plus? The Deep Nature Spa and its many services offered by the Château, which will make you feel like you are on an island paradise.


The Domaine des Vanneaux swimming pool



In the Domaine des Vanneaux boutique hotel, only 35 minutes from Paris, enjoy a complete stay in the Val-d’Oise. Its large outdoor pool is lined with deckchairs so you can sunbathe (without forgetting to apply your sun protection factor 50). The Domaine des Vanneaux boutique hotel is located in a rural setting, which will give you the impression of being far from Paris. Like other boutique hotels, the Domaine has many amenities including a wellness area and spa with hammam, and even a golf course.


The swimming pool at Château de Saint Paterne



The Château de Saint Paterne was once the home of King Henry IV of France, who was assassinated in 1610 and ruled France for over 20 years. The establishment offers a true journey through the ages, from the Renaissance to the 18th century. The luxurious immersive stay blends tradition with modernity, and has a large outdoor pool in a unique setting. The decorations were designed under the direction of Charles-Henry and Ségolène de Valbray, the Château’s restaurateurs. Its advantage? It is possible to privatize the Château de Saint Paterne to organize various events.
