Since spring 2018 the water of our pools is solar heated. Over the last years we have learned that if you want to enjoy an outdoor pool in Portugal in spring and autumn, heating is a must. Because of that we decided to install over 40 m2 of solar collectors. Besides, during the night our pool is covered by our automatic safety cover, keeping the pool from cooling down. Therefore, at Quinta Laranja, the water temperature will be around 5-6 degrees celsius higher than that of non heated pools. And that could very well be the difference between swimming and not swimming in spring and autumn!
The main swimming pool
The main swimming pool has a length of 12.5 meters and a width of 5.5 meters. Ideal to play but certainly suitable to swim some lengths! The shallow part of the swimming pool has a depth of 1 meter so smaller kids too can swim here; the deep end has a depth of 1.90. The shallow side of the pool has a so called roman entrance: a crescent shaped stairs that is easily taken by kids as well as less mobile people.
