THE GARDEN

Swimming pool
Recco offers stone beach, and communal swimming pool in the summer time. 
Our reason to have a swimming pool on the grounds is to expand the possibility of play. Once you learn the ‘rules’ of swimming you are safe to play, it gives you an immense freedom to understand water in safe surroundings.

Basketball / outdoor stage 

Kitchen garden

Reparation of existing stone walls 

Spring fountain by Carla+ installation

Outside eating area 

Garden benches, chairs, tables, swings, hammocks, tents
