Bonjour! I'm Stéphanie and  like you I love villas and hotels with pools.

I am a French full time working mum and blogger living in London with my Mr Big and Mademoiselle. The three of us really enjoy staying at unique boutique hotels and villa rentals and we always look for the essential pool! From the Poolside is my personal extensive collection of delightful holiday places where we stayed or would like to stay. You can find gorgeous  boutique hotels with pools and villa rentals all perfect for families with young children. They all satisfy my taste for chic interiors and a relaxed approach towards families.

This is the holiday resource you've been looking for!

I love helping stylish travellers quickly find their own dream escape for their next family holiday. As a busy mum working full time, I know how precious holidays are and I don’t want me or you to waste hours on the web searching for the right place.

My goal is to help you create wonderful holiday memories

One reader once told me that the place I recommended her was “the highlight of our holidays”. That's my goal: to help you create wonderful memories in a place you first discovered here. I can't wait to hear about it so drop me an email or reach out on Instagram  or Facebook any time! I hope to hear from you soon!  A bientôt

Stéphanie
