We’re going to Andalucía in May
We’re looking for a house with a private swimming pool (in Frigliana, Nerja or Lake Vinuela)
Do we need a heated pool in May? Or is the water temperature good for swimming in the unheated pools?
Our 2 years old kid also wants to swim :)
May will be fine for the pool. April can be a bit chilly but by May you should be fine - except my missus of course who gets in toe by toe at anything less than 39 degrees C. Heated pools are fine of course but add about £100-£200 on the weekly cost. The poolside heat will probably drive you into th pool by May anyway.
For your villa try:
For heavens sake dont throw money away on agencies like James Villas! :-)
Lots of owners have a decent selection of pool toys and stuff for various ages. It may be worth your while discussing this in your e-mails to owners, to save you carrying or buying too many swimming aids. Of course anything you do buy can be left if it wont fit in your luggage.
