Cottages with pool
If you really want to pamper yourself during your holiday, then a holiday home with a private swimming pool is for you. Jump from your bedroom into your own lovely warm pool and time will fly by. Nowadays, a holiday home with a private swimming pool does not have to cost as much as in the past. This is because more and more holiday homes have their own swimming pool on site. Sometimes holiday homes even have an indoor pool or both an indoor and outdoor pool.
How wonderful it would be to go on a holiday where you do not have to share the pool with other holidaymakers. First of all, it is nice that you only have to share with your own family, friends or relatives. Because you've probably experienced that you arrive at the pool during your holiday and there was no place left! Or that the pool itself was overcrowded and you couldn't even swim a single lane... When you book a holiday home with private pool, you won't have to deal with that.
Secondly, it is simply wonderful to be able to walk straight from your living room to the pool with your partner or with your children. You don't have to worry about which bikini or swimming trunks to put on, because you are the only ones who see it! You can also swim laps at your leisure or just float in the water for hours without 'occupying' the pool. To give you some tips about holiday homes with private swimming pools, we have listed a few things on this page. To be on the safe side, always check that you have the pool to yourself!

Highlights of Europe
National Park Eifel
The Eifel National Park has extensive forest areas in which both beech and oak forests can be found. This national park offers the ultimate opportunity to get close to nature. The Eifel National Park is located in North Rhine-Westphalia, in the northern part of the Eifel. It is one of the first beech forest areas to receive national attention in Germany. The forests in Eifel National Park used to be mainly used for timber production. Today, in many places in this national park, nature has taken over again. This has created wild and untouched forests. The park provides an important habitat for more than 230 endangered plant and animal species.
In 1999, the nearly 86,000-hectare area was declared a national park, the largest in Spain. It is located in south-east Spain and consists mainly of mountains, forests, rivers and lakes.
Spain's highest peak is also in the park at 3479 metres, so there can be snow in winter. From the high mountains you have a beautiful view of the whole area, Granada and on clear days even Morocco across the Mediterranean Sea. One of the characteristic animals in the area is the ibex, and with a population of 15,000, there is a good chance that you will see one if you go hiking in the high mountains. There are also badgers, rabbits and the wild cat. Sierra Nevada is a very rich flora area with 2100 species described of which more than 60 are endemic to the area.
Cevennes national park
The region is characterised by a wonderful Mediterranean climate with relatively high precipitation, which makes the land fertile and has been used for centuries. These beautiful pastoral lands give the region its character and that is why the Cévennes has been included by UNESCO on the world heritage list as a Mediterranean agro-pastoral cultural landscape. The low mountain range is interspersed with valleys carved by the rivers. The valleys are mostly planted with chestnut trees, which are the bread tree of the people of this region.
The Cevennes, despite the human influences, has a very rich flora and fauna with many rare species. Especially a large diversity of birds of prey is characteristic for the region that has a varied landscape with grasslands, forests, rivers and rocks. On the grasslands, the peregrine falcon hunts hares and rabbits and other birds such as the summer tortoise.
