Our pools overlooking the Mediterranean combine everything someone with a swimsuit, a good book, and a block of free time could ask for: panoramic views, plush lounge chairs, sunshine and every shade of blue imaginable. From refreshing morning splashes, to beating the afternoon heat and swimming under the stars, any time is a good time for a dip!
