There are many lovely pools with many lovely views.
A pool at the edge of another body of water .. . be it a lake or
an ocean ... . . doubles the aquatic immersion.
I have great memories of this particular view.
A small hotel in a small village in France.
An area known for inspiring artists such as
Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Chagall, Leger and Calder.
This small hotel was known to be especially appreciative
and supportive of these artists early in their careers ... .
often trading meals and lodging in exchange for paintings
and sculpture. The art remains - - on the walls in the restaurant
& the guest rooms, as well as in the courtyard and around the pool.
To swim in this cool shaded pool and float under the stunning Calder
mobile is perhaps my favorite pool view.
Many of you may recognize this to be Hotel La Colombe d'Or
in Saint Paul de Vence. Visit their website HERE to learn
more about the history of this charming inn .... . but, know
that July and August tend to be tres crowded, so an off season
visit will allow for a quieter pool experience.
