Take the plunge in style 
Piscine Molitor 

The famed Art Deco pool fell into disuse in 1989 despite its storied past. It was launched by Olympia Johnny Weissmuller (Tarzan) in 1929 and was where they launched the bikini in 1946. It took a group called SOS Molitor and Euros 64.8 million to bring it back to life, along with a hotel, health centre and glamorous boutiques.

The Ritz Paris

With the cool white columns that line the room, the blue and white mosaic tiles that decorate the pool and the cerulean water, you feel as if you have arrived at a Roman spa. The Ritz Paris is also the home of the Chanel spa, so book yourself in for a massage. We are sure you deserve it.

Josephine Baker Swimming Pool

This 25-metres long pool is set on a giant barge, which is moored in the Seine. In the summer, the glass roof slides back to reveal a giant sun terrace. Once you have burnt off those calories in the pool, you can enjoy the Jacuzzi, sauna and hamman.

Piscine De La Butte Aux Cailles

This art noveau pool became a national monument in 1990. Featuring not one, but three pools, you have the choice of swimming within the indoor pool or in one of the two outside areas. Thanks to the sulphurous spring, the water stays a balmy 28 degrees.

The Peninsula Paris 

This sleek and chic pool can be found in the spa. Measuring 65 feet, it is reportedly the city’s largest hotel pool. You should have plenty of room to perfect your butterfly stroke and practise those laps at The Peninsula Paris.
