3- Is the swimming pool on the Ile de Re a good investment?

A pool is a determining factor when renting a property, even on the Ile de Ré. Claiming that “the sea is just like having a pool” doesn’t hold water with the potential clients who make the pool their number 1 selection criteria.

It doesn’t need to be big: 8m x 4m is enough. It’s better to invest in accessories like a heating system (indispensable on the Ile de Ré) and an electric safety cover which also helps conserve heat.

Ideally then, your property should have a 8×4 pool with a heat pump and an electric safety cover.

For « top of the range » or « luxury » properties, not having a pool significantly reduces your letting potential. For small village houses, a pool is a plus point but not essential.
