Conjure up a spec for your ultimate dream home, and how can you resist including the azure blue oasis of a private swimming pool? If you're looking for the perfect holiday pad - or even a plush palace to purchase - we can offer you a place where you can make a splash in your very own pool. Experience infinity pools bathed in sunshine, indoor pools that feel like the tropics in mid-winter, and private watery zones where you can get away from it all and work up an appetite for the round of gourmet fare...


Maison Olonzac, Languedoc Roussillon, France
Sleeps? 8 (Self Catering with a cook available on request)

Situated in a haven for food and wine enthusiasts, it's a godsend that this regal mansion comes with a large indoor pool in which you can work off the excesses of gourmet indulgence. 

A perfect house party venue, the elegant 19th Century property comes with king-sized beds, roaring log fires for a winter's day, stunning Mediterranean gardens for a summer's day, and the balmy indoor pool to be enjoyed in every season.

How much: 3000-3250 per week
More Info:

Contemporary Elizabethan Hall, Norfolk
30 (14 in the main house; 16 in two period barn conversions)

Slip into a swimming pool made for lazy summer days - this watery oasis is enclosed in a beautiful walled garden complete with summerhouse, fountain and a knot garden. 

But the swimming hole is isn't the only highlight in this grand Elizabethan manor house; not short on luxurious frills this period country retreat comes with roll top baths, four-poster beds, log fires, a baby grand piano, ornate décor, a superior-spec country kitchen and your very own butler.

How much: 3 day short breaks £3,400; weekly £6,000
More Info:

Blakedown Manor, Worcestershire
18 (self catering/fully catered or meals at an additional cost)

Stepping from your private sauna into your very own pool is akin to staying at a private spa. And an exclusive spa to boot; inside a Grade II mansion set in 132 stunning acres in the north Worcestershire countryside. 

Decadent style and charm go hand-in-hand with sumptuous luxuries too extensive to list, but we happen to think a mention of the wine cellar stocked with the finest vintages might give you an inkling of the lavish residence that awaits.

How much: 2-night short breaks £3,800; weekly £8,900
More Info:

Tower Hill, Rutland, Lincolnshire
14-16 (self catering with housekeeping, private chefs and drivers on request)

An indoor pool, a sauna and a gymnasium are all part of the perks in this rural retreat that offers a stay in the lap of absolute luxury. 

Sink into the art of country living: pamper yourself in a roll top bath, kick back by the fireside or explore the stunning countryside on foot or by bike. Once you've raided the welcome hamper and had a field day with the Aga and Gaggenhau ovens (or hired a private chef to do that for you), head to the indoor pool so you won't be taking the holiday excess home on your hips.

How much: 2 nights - £2,400; 3 nights - £3,500; weekly £5,995
More Info:

Regency Manor, Piddletrenthide, Dorset
14-16 (self catering)

A mere two hours from London, yet worlds away from city life, this elegant Regency house is nestled in a secluded countryside hamlet. 

Take a breath of fresh air in the impressive setting of the remote country downs, bask in the bliss of your sumptuous bedroom, and fling open the doors of the drawing room onto the garden patio. As if this isn't enough to make you relax; but you'll also find a heated indoor swimming pool housed in a light-filled room, with French doors that open onto the terrace and nearby tennis courts.

How much: Weekends from £3,500; 4-day weekends (peak) £4,500-£5,000; weekly £6,000 - £8,000
More Info:

El Molino del Conde, Malaga, Andalucia, Spain
8-20 (self catering)

Situated in the hills and olive groves of Southern Spain, this beautifully restored Andalucian mill sits in lush grounds that cascade down to a stream border. 

Made for an idyllic holiday with friends, family and loved ones, it is a place simply drenched in the relaxed Spanish lifestyle. Lazy summer days might encourage you to do little more than loll on the sun loungers, cool off in the azure blue waters of your private pool, pluck fresh fruit from the trees and retreat into the creature comforts of your historic venue for a siesta in sumptuous surroundings.

How much: £1,950 - £3,100 per week
More Info:

17 (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast)

'Unique' comes in large doses in this beautifully restored 17th Century Bohemian stone farmhouse only 75-minutes from Prague. 

Traditional stone and wood features adorn exquisitely designed rooms and the former cowshed has been turned into a stunning dining room where superb local cuisine is served. In winter it's possible to explore the beauty of the National Park on the doorstep by husky sledge or cross-country skis, but in summer you'll find more use for the secluded swimming pool after a day out on foot or by bike.

How much? From £49pp per night
