Top 10 Hotel Swimming Pool Views
There are few more exhilarating sights on earth than the floating pool on Lake Como, part of the stunning 16th-century, 152-room Villa d'Este hotel in northern Italy. Built into a pontoon that floats on the 28-mile lake, the pool is the centerpiece of a stunning watercourse. Giant cloud-topped mountains rise up from the water's edge, while streams, grottoes, and fountains gurgle down the mountain slopes. A Jacuzzi has been added to the pontoon pool, although since the pontoon is only open in summer, you're just as likely to want to cool off in the lake.
Tip: A heated indoor pool open all year round is located in the Sporting Club building of the grounds, accessed by an underground passage
from the main building.
