Fabulous outdoors living spaces, peaceful, dreamy light, comfy beds, and 2 fully fitted kitchens. Perfect for families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets). Unique rock pool 5 mts by 4 mts, fed from natural fountain in the nearby woods. NOTE THE ROCK POOL IS TOTALLY ORGANIC... I should draw your attention to the fact that the rock pool is divided into 2 sections: the 1st section is where the totally fresh water is but it is the smallest ie 1/3 of the size of the 5 X 4 structure. Just 1 person could sit here. the 2nd section is 'more organic' looking ie not clear water. 2 to 3 persons could sit here. The fresh water constantly runs so the overall water is constantly replenished, albeit slowly. In the old days, this pool would have been used for keeping containers of food in to keep cool. And for animals to drink from. However, coming from London, I used to swim in the famous Hampstead Heath Ladies Pond, which was also 'organic' looking. So, when you finished your swim, you would get out with a film of organic matter on you, which is briliant for your skin. And, in the VERY old days, the Romans used such pools for bathing in, also for health reasons. The reason for the greeny colour is that the fresh spring water is full of minerals that oxidise with the air, immediately the air hits the water. The result is a biologically healthy liquid that energises the skin. In the UK, a place called Bath hosts such a bathing pool, a relic from the days of the Romans. This is what made me decide to offer this totally unique 'rock pool' to the market. A totally natural experience! And rare ! There is a wet room opposite the rock pool, so you can instantly shower, if you do like healthy organic matter on your skin! There is a sensationally beautiful public swimming pool with a restaurant at Macerino Castle, 5 kms from Rock Pool Cottage, in the country - a beautiful walk or car drive through lush countryside with stunning countryside.......barley, wheat, sunflower and popp.y fields, olive groves and vineyards, mediaeval villages, including Macerino Castle, pepper the landscape.
