Let’s take a night dive!
Built in 1934 in the heart of the Latin Quarter, Piscine de Pontoise is an authentic Art Deco pool, registered as a landmark since 1998 and designed by Lucien Pollet. He was a famous architect of the 1930s who has also built the beautiful Molitor pool, unfortunately closed now, on the west edge of Paris, considered as one of the Paris Art Deco jewels for its flamboyant mosaics but in a bad need of renovation.
A 100 feet long pool topped with private cabanas on several levels under a glass roof that offers night swimming sessions!
To the midnight bath lovers, the pool remains opened from 8.15pm until midnight from Monday through Friday thanks to the Latin Quarter Club. In a dimmed cozy light, with relaxing music playing, you can enjoy swimming, fitness classes, cardio-training and benefits of the sauna. A serene and peaceful moment in a place that hosted Commandant Cousteau in 1936 for his very first diving suit essays and Johnny Weissmuller as shooting the movie Tarzan.
A way to discover another of the Paris landmarks, after hours, in a relaxing atmosphere as well as a getting good fitness in case you feel like walking the streets of Paris is not enough to burn the calories of this great pastries you ate before…
