Many of us like to base a large part of our holiday around the swimming pool. Whether you prefer sunbathing on a lounger, swimming laps or playing games with the kids, access to a pool can massively enhance your precious time away. Swimming is also a fantastic way to reduce stress, relax your muscles and completely lose yourself in the holiday experience.

Here at Michael Paul Holidays, we have a fantastic range of holiday homes with pools – UK trips away don’t always have to be spent in the icy sea waters…take a peek at our recommended list of properties and make a booking today!
