Visited today as our gite's pool is out of action for a while. Firstly the good points, it was €26 for our family of four which we felt was reasonable. It's spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly. There's also plenty to do with the different pools, springboard and slides (x 2). Having said all that, after an hour and... More

Visited Nautilus for the first time with visiting family and a 5 and 1 year old. Very disappointed. Nowhere near enough shade with young children. Had to sit in the cafe to keep out of the sun. Children were not allowed in the indoor pools with all in one sun protect, swim suits. Had to spend 9 euros on trunks... More

Something for everybody: an olympic sized pool, kids pool & baby pool, as well as an area with bubbles and waves and fountains. There is also a waterslide and a diving board pool. In the summer the outside is open with a further 4 slides, and rapids and a wave pool. Really worth a visit if you need some indoor... More

Amazing! This is such a fun swimming centre. Lots of pools, water slides, flumes. It is kept very clean. Oh come on England, stop closing pools and open some like this please 😀

The hours are a little strange because they change depending on if you want to lane swim, go in the regular swimming pool, or if you want to go in the spa area. The pools are fantastic to swim in! I go lane swimming twice a week and it is never too crowded and in the summer I am sure... More

We have visited this pool complex twice during our summer holiday in France as our gite does not have a pool of its own. on both occasions I needed to drag my two children away after more than four hours onsite - this speaks volumes to the quality and variety of slides and pools - The site is a strict...

Nautilis is situated just outside of Angouleme and is well sign- posted. There are a good range of attractions inside - the key ones being the large flume, the wave machine and the rapids. The pool and surrounding areas are clean and very well staffed, with attentive life guards who control all visitors well, making sure noone is behaving in... More
