The thing about Places in the Sun is that they're usually pretty hot, which is great of course - however, sometimes it takes more than a tall glass of water or mixed-drink to cool you down. Sometimes the only thing that will fully awaken the senses and rejuvenate the spirits in the heat is to feel your body fully-immersed in restorative water. And this is where the luxury and convenience of having a private pool proves invaluable.
We've chosen our 15 favourite properties with private pools for you to consider. From Béziers, France to Barbados by way of Alicante and the Algarve - there should be something to make most of you want to armstand back double somersault tuck dive in - or at the very least, dip your toes.
