Europe is a continent steeped in history, linguistic and cultural diversity and bountiful rural landscapes, where you can switch off from reality for a few days and just enjoy the birdsong and the slow rustling of leaves as the wind blows gently. Here at Travelmyth we know that all you nature lovers aren’t simply looking for a hotel to spend the night at your next destination, so we have compiled a list of hotels in European countries which are not only surrounded by idyllic natural landscapes, but have also gone above and beyond to create their own little slice of nature with a natural lake pool right on their premises.

And what exactly is a natural lake pool, you might ask? Although the specifics differ from pool to pool, it’s basically a pool, usually outdoors, designed to look like a small lake. It’s sometimes framed by rocks and various aquatic plants which give it a more natural feel, while the colour of the water is often on the greener side. Natural lake pools don’t use harmful chemicals such as chlorine, making them much healthier for both humans going in for a swim and the ground and space around them (and let’s not forget how much smoother your skin will be without all those chemicals used for sanitising the pools!).

Apart from serene natural surroundings, most of the hotels on our list place a lot of emphasis on wellness and are quite ecologically minded, so they’re really just perfect for a quiet and relaxing getaway. So curl up, grab your favourite hot drink and let’s explore together 6 hotels and other types of accommodation in Europe that have a natural lake pool.
