When you want to recharge your batteries and get a breath of fresh air in a bucolic setting close to Paris (55 minutes by high-speed TGV or 1 hour 30 minutes by car), the estate of la Groirie is just what you are looking for. Just ten minutes from the centre of Le Mans, in the Sarthe department (72), La Groirie is a charming hotel with a swimming pool and 13 exclusively decorated rooms. Nestling in a vast estate consisting of a park with numerous species, this prestige hotel is housed in the guest wing of a historic residential château built by a Parisian financier who was also a collector of orange trees. One day, during a trip, the owners had the idea of transforming the guest wing of the historic château into a prestige Hotel; their dream is now a reality and is here, waiting to welcome you.
So where is the pool?
The swimming pool at the la Groirie estate is in a walled enclosure that provides safety for the youngest members of the family and offers privacy for its users. This was the reason why the pool was built on the plot that was home to the château’s former aviary. Just push open the small door that gives the opening times and walk down a few steps to find it. Hidden away, and sheltered from the wind and prying eyes, is the château de la Groirie swimming pool.
Our amply sized (15x5m) heated pool is open in high season (June to September). Enjoy a refreshing dip or take a leisurely swim before basking in the sun or taking a siesta under one of the parasols.
The pool area is open from 10am to 8pm every day. Please refrain from eating food in the enclosure.
