    This small haven of peace, schematically located between the Boulevard Auguste Blanqui, Tolbiac, the Samson Street and Baker Street Street is not far from the Place of Italy. Verlaine square in front of the original pool immediately sets the tone of the place. The quiet and slow here seem to be the watchwords. Up to the mound at Quail Street, the lanes sloping and paved are revealed. Street Art is omnipresent, respected and very worked. Small restaurant bars are, very intimate, and give a friendly provincial atmosphere. The ride slows naturally like to take the time to enjoy all the little details and feel the atmosphere of this unique place. The scenery is guaranteed.

    We discovered with great pleasure this charming area of Paris: atmosphere of quiet village with old houses, flowery passages, small hidden corners, street art on every street corner, of restaurants and nice bars

    This area retains many of the qualities of the village that it once was on the outskirts of the city. Distinctive architecture and association with the artistic life of the city make it a charming spo...  more »

    I tried the outdoor pool just this week (Feb). Quite fun. Short walk to the warmth of the building. A bit confusing with the lockers, changing rooms and levels. Definitely going back.

    Great facility, recently redone...33m indoor pool and 25m outdoor pool open year round. I normally go before work from 7am to 8am during the week and then in the afternoon on the weekends. The staff and people there are typically friendly. Not much english spoken though.

    Outdoor pools are always a draw (and they have two here - a 25 and 10 m) but what really impressed me was the indoor pool. The indoor pool (33 m) had the feeling of being light, airy, and almost ethereal. The lanes had minimal rules, compared to other piscines, only the fast lane prohibited brasse. The other lanes were self regulating but I found had inconsistent speeds. The two outer lanes are free lanes so if the inconsistent speed of the other lane swimmers address throwing you off then you have options. The change room was large, spacious, co-ed, and had a layout sightly like a prison (you have to see it to know what I mean). The showers are co-ed but there are individual showers on the side, check the water pressure before you commit to one though. Lockers require a 1€ coin, but hair dryers are free.

    Winter: water heated indoor and outdoor.

    Everything is forbidden and everybody must wear a bathing cap and men tight swim shorts. Boring for kids. Safe deposit is available.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
