Ready to Join?

Dear sunbathing and swimming friends,

You are welcome to join us on saturday morning 1st september to swim and/or sunbathe from 10:00 AM to 12:00 AM, before the picnic at my place.

Protected content is a nice cozy little town just a few minutes (by RER) from downtown Paris Protected content by RER from Charles de Gaulle Etoile). It is the second RER station after La Défense, therefore it is very near Paris and easy to get there by RER. The swimming pool is less than 10 minutes walking distance Protected content from the Protected content sur Seine RER and train station.

If you come by car, there is a big (and free) parking on the right hand side of the swimming pool (keep your pool ticket to go out of the parking) and there is always always plenty of room to park (and also free) at my place (rue Victor Hugo, very near the swimming pool).

For the picnic after the sunbathing/swimming session, my ecohouse is just around the block Protected content , 2 minutes walking distance).

The swimming pool is recent, clean and good quality (inaugurated in Protected content cleaner and less crowded than any of the swimming pools in Paris. It has two big 25 m swimming basins (see photos) : one big pool for swimmers (8 swimming lanes), and one shallower and warmer pool for children (and adult beginners).

There is a sunbathing area and terrace on the upper level (see photos).

We can sunbathe, swim and enjoy there until about noon.

We can then share a picnic at my place, which is very near the swimming pool, just around the corner (walk 2 minutes).

Address for the picnic/lunch (at my place) : Protected content

Those who want can join in for the picnic only, or swimming only, or both, as you wish.

Each of us brings his own food/picinc, and something to share.

The house is a high-performance eco-house (positive energy, photovoltaic panels, geothermal air conditioning, strong insulation, high performance heat pump, double-flux ventilation, six heat exchangers...) technically interesting (for eco-construction enthusiasts).

If you come by public transport, I suggest you take the following RER :

There is one train every 15 minutes going toProtected content on RER line A
For example on that day there are trains leaving from Charles de Gaulle Etoile at :
9:12
9:23
9:38
9:53
there is one RER every 15 minutes (you don't need to aim for a specific train) arriving in Houilles 12 minutes later.
After Etoile, the RER A also goes through La Defense (4 minutes later) and before Etoile you can board in at Auber, Chatelet, Nation... (a little earlier, about 4 minutes per station).

Be careful : not all the RER's line A heading west go to Houilles, only train 1 in 2. Before boarding the train when you are standing on the platform, make sure that the HOUILLES-CARRIERES SUR SEINE destination is lit (the little light near the name of the destination is ON when the train does go to that destination) before stepping into the train, otherwise you may end up in Saint Germain en Laye !

There are also direct SNCF trains to Protected content

In both cases (coming from RER line A or SNCF from St Lazare) go out the RER/SNCF station on the LEFT hand side (when you watch the train leaving, Paris being in your back).

The swimming pool is just a 5 minute quick-walk Protected content slow walk, 8 min standard stride) from the RER station.

The meeting point is in front of the entrance of the swimming pool (outside) until 10:05.

See the exact location of the meeting point on the fourth photo posted.

If you arrive before 9:50, you can either wait at the pool, go inside and start swimming or sunbathing until the rest of the group arrives, or come to my place 55 rue Victor Hugo and we'll go at 9;55.

At 10:05 we will go inside the pool. Whoever arrives late can join the others in the swimming pool downstairs and/or sunbathing terrace upstairs. I have a red swim suit, a blue towel and swimming glasses.

The cost of the swimming pool entrance ticket is 4.50 Euros for adults. The picnic of course is free (each of us brings his own).

To participate in the picnic after the pool, you should register here, if you haven't already done so :
