Having the chance to swim in this mythical pool, I can confirm what was said by this brave uncle :-). Indeed, the pool of Molitor is composed of two pools whose water quality is constantly monitored even if each pool has its own charm, the winter pool rather dedicated to "assiduous swimmers" for training and the summer pool more reserved for "good living" for the outdoors and for the good smell of restaurants (Urban and Rooftop). In addition to its clear water, the Molitor Pool has an extraordinary team of coaches, both friendly and professional. In the family, we took some group or individual classes with some coaches, especially with Valentin and Aurélien, but also with Simon, Kévin, Stéphane and Taotien. These coaches each have different teaching methods, but they are all charming and patient. Finally, a word to thank the young women and the young man at the reception of club Molitor for their good humor as well as Aby (or ABee as in English "Busy like A Bee") of the team of the maintenance of his smile and his kindness.
