Swimming pool construction Vaucluse

The current trend when planning a new home is to include a swimming pool. This way, you can spend quality time alone, with family or friends, at any time of the year. Such a project in the Vaucluse region deserves careful thought, and requires the intervention of a professional. How do you choose your pool? What's the budget? Here's what you need to know about building a swimming pool in Vaucluse.

How to choose a swimming pool in Vaucluse?

There are many different pool models to choose from, which doesn't always make the choice easy. However, if you take into account certain essential criteria, it's easy to choose the type of pool that's right for you.

Garden size and type of land

Size is the first point to consider before choosing the type of pool you want, because a minimum amount of space is required for such a project. In addition to size, you need to consider the type of land on which it will be built. Whether flat, sloping, soft or rocky, the type of terrain determines the type of pool you can install at home (model, size, structure).


Just as important as the previous criterion is the local regulations in force. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you consult the Vaucluse town planning scheme. If you're planning to install an in-ground or semi-in-ground pool, you'll need to obtain planning permission beforehand. What's more, the pool must be fitted with a safety system to prevent the risk of drowning.

Type of use

Deep water? A swim lane? A pool deep enough to facilitate children's jumps? A pool wide and long enough to swim more freely? A heated or covered pool for year-round enjoyment? These are important questions to ask before deciding on the ideal type of pool.

The budget

Once you've decided on the above criteria, it's time to plan your budget to make your project a reality. Pools are available at all price levels. Of course, the cost of work and annual maintenance must be included in the final budget for your Vaucluse pool construction project.

Successful swimming pool construction requires a number of precise techniques. The first step is to lay out the layout. This involves checking that nothing is sticking through the ground, placing stakes, stretching out chalk lines, measuring diagonals, checking the level of the pool as a reference point, etc.

Once this has been completed, work can begin on the earthwork. This involves defining the location and depth of the pool, and laying out the connecting paths between the pool and the equipment room. It's important to note that the amount of earthwork required depends on the composition of the ground in which the pool will be installed.

Next come drainage and the pool structure. With drainage, water inlets that could exert pressure on the pool are diverted. Next comes the ideal structure for the pool. For a concrete pool, for example, you can use poured concrete, shotcrete, reinforced concrete or formwork concrete.

Now it's time to prepare the pipe circuit. Before backfilling, it's important to check that each component is securely in place. If the structure is watertight, the lining can be decorative. Once these steps have been completed, the pond can be filled with water. This may take several days.

The budget required for a swimming pool construction project in the Vaucluse region varies according to a number of criteria. Indeed, the size of the pool, the materials to be used for the lining, the nature of the soil and the condition of the land all have an impact on the overall price. Of course, labor costs must also be factored into the budget.

Ideally, you should put several quotes in competition with each other to select the best price. Building a swimming pool can cost up to €50,000. On average, an 8 × 4 m immersion pool will cost between €20,000 and €25,000. Of course, you can have pools for less, but this will depend on a number of factors.

Once you've obtained your building permit, you'll need to call in a construction professional.

Construction professionals can be :

  • villa builders ;
  • architects ;
  • project managers.

The building permit and the building professional are the two points you need to complete your project.

Depending on the size of the pool, authorization may be required from the town hall. For a pool of up to 10 m², it is important to declare the work to the town hall if the land on which the pool is to be built is :

  • Within the perimeter of a heritage site ;

  • In the vicinity of a historic monument ;

  • In a protected area or

  • On a classified site or a site awaiting classification.

If it exceeds 10 m² up to 100 m², a declaration is required, regardless of where the pool is installed. But for a pool larger than 100 m², planning permission is required.

  • single-family home construction contracts,
  • the guaranteed price,
  • site supervision.

These warranties protect both the homeowner and the builder, and ensure a job well done.

However, it's a good idea to mention these guarantees in the construction contract. You should also take out insurance to help you in the process. That way, you won't have to worry about anything else during your construction project in the Avignon area.
