The Piscine Pontoise is one of the most legendary pools in Paris.
Built in the 1930s, this historical landmark has attracted stars such as Commander Cousteau and swimming champion Johnny Weismuller (also known as Tarzan). More recently, Juliette Binoche swam here on the set of Kieslowski’s “Bleu,” and Issey Miyake held a fashion show.
Nowadays, you can work off your stress with a formule nocturne (pool entry, gym, cardio and sauna from 8:15pm to 12:45pm). Other activities include squash, yoga, French boxing, and Tai Chi among many others.
Access granted per session, or with a monthly/yearly membership.
