Outside there is a large table on the patio by the swimming pool with a basic barbecue set. There is also a Carrara marble table and four chairs. The swimming pool lights and garden wall-lights can be turned on from the swimming pool machinery room next to the kitchen door outside the house. The garden wall and room lights are just inside the door; the pool lights are located by a switch called "Projecteurs" inside the aquamarine box on the wall to the left. There is an exterior wall light on the patio which is turned on by a switch in the utility room. Please remember to turn this off when you go to bed at night.
If it looks like rain please bring in the chair cushions from around the pool and anything else that might get damaged by rain. Storms in this area can be very sudden and spectacular. If a storm is brewing, please also bring into the house anything from around the pool that might get blown away, such as lilos, beach balls etc.
Be very careful when coming in from the pool to the kitchen. The tiles on the kitchen floor are very slippery indeed and dangerous when wet. Your attention is also drawn to the danger of running near the swimming pool or by the sharp-edged stone stairs leading to the kitchen. Sprinklers are sometimes used for the grass around the swimming pool and to the front of the house. The garden is bordered by a laurel hedge, which is wearing thin in places, and by a stone wall. Fig trees abound, and if you are lucky enough to be staying in September, you will be rewarded by almost limitless amounts of figs. In the spring the hollyhocks are prominent.
Swimming Pool The pool (12m x 5m) is available for use throughout the summer months and will be cleaned regularly. Please be careful not to pull at the liner above the water level. It is very important to observe the common-sense rule that very small children and those who cannot swim should never be left unattended near the swimming pool.
Petanque Beyond the stone wall the village petanque site has been established and residents of La Hune are entitled to use the site for the purpose of this restful and engaging game. A petanque set can be found in the kitchen.
