Here are a few (well more than a few!) words from my previous and existing clients.

Further reviews are available on google and Pristine Piscines Facebook page.


"Trust me, if you are new to pools and need help these people will help!

Jules is amazing, helpful, generous and experienced!

Without a doubt Pristine Piscines have made our pool what it is today, quality!

Thank you!"

Sean Dawson,

St Sulpice D'Excideuil.

In the middle of having our pool built. All the team are amazing, especially Julia. Professional, efficient and available if you have any queries. Highly recommend, can’t wait for our pool to be finished!

Debbie Lymberry,


Just wanted to thank Julia French for her professional approach in project managing the build of our new 10 x 5m heated pool.

From start to finish Julia was in constant contact with us, sending regular photos, confirming requirements and ensuring we were satisfied with progress.

We have a beautifully finished, gorgeous pool.

Her bubbly, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable experience gave us great confidence in her and the build.

She has visited weekly since the work was completed and has attended at the drop of a hat if we had any minor concerns.

We highly recommend her for any future pool builds and her servicing of our pool has been superb.

There is nothing she cannot sort out which gives you complete peace of mind.

Thank you Julia from the bottom of our hearts.

Lesley and Stuart,


"La piscine construite par Julia a bientôt 12 ans …
Elle est toujours en parfait fonctionnement !"

Mme Maloubier,


"After inheriting a rather run down and neglected pool from our recent Dordogne purchase,

Julia was invaluable in helping us repair and restore it so that we could enjoy it our first season. 

We were particularly impressed with the network of pool specialists Julia works with and the value they bring to her business- making her service a "one-stop" solution for the maintenance and upkeep of our pool.

She is always hard working and efficient when she visits the property and we are really happy to be working with her."

Patrice Bevans,


Excellent responsive service from an incredibly experienced and professional expert in all things swimming pools. Julia is friendly, communicative and reliable. I wouldn’t use any other company. Highly recommend.

Marcella Perigande.

St.Medard d' Excideuil.

"Julia has been looking after my swimming-pool for 10 years.

All sorts of things have needed renewing and repairing in that time, culminating in an electric pool-cover and heat exchange system - which I cannot recommend highly enough. She is always cheerful and willing to tackle problems and maintenance".

I have no wish whatsoever to be without her".

The Honourable Kirstie Forbes-Sempill,

La Morenchie.

"We have used Julia for several years and have found her to be most professional, conscientious and reliable".

Derek Maclaren,


'We have been very impressed with Julia's work - our pool looks beautiful!

Julia is very conscientious and professional and has even recommended us other tradesman when we have needed them. Although we are not always in France we know the pool is always in very good hands".

Julia Hinton.


"Thank you very much Julia, that you solved a technical problem for our holiday renters during high season of our swimming pool during our holiday in another country!

Everybody was very happy with your quick, friendly and professional action,

everything in one day👍".




"We have with worked with Julia for a couple of years.

The maintenance is perfect, and problems are solved in a day".

Thanks a lot!

Pauline de Vos,

Domain d’Essendiéras.


“Julia has opened our pool at the beginning of the last few seasons and closed it again at the end.

She has also maintained it throughout the summer and kept it sparkling each of those years.

She has been totally reliable and conscientious, and we have been very pleased to have her looking after the swimming pool.”

Gordon and Pauline Mckechnie,


"Julia came to my rescue 2 years ago now when I was finding it increasingly difficult (impossible!) to get trustworthy, year-round, all-in, professional pool care for our Dordogne maison secondaire. I seemed to be able to get two, or at best, three out of the four, and if you live several hundred miles away in another country you really want all four. 

Julia has proved this, and all the peace of mind that brings".

Mick Temple,



"Julia French has looked after our pool at Roncecy for the last 10 years.  When she took it on it was in poor condition generally, but there has been steady improvement since and several of our friends and clients have remarked on this.

Julia is cheerful and unflappable at all times and has always responded to my cries for help quickly and efficiently. 

She keeps our equipment and machinery in good order which is really helpful and she has a ‘pool’ of friends who can be called on for special tasks when required.

I can recommend her and Pristine PIscines and would be happy to enlarge on this reference if required".

Stephen Gibbs,



"We have used the technical services that Julia has provided for many years.

Last year we needed a new liner and, as ever, all went smoothly and she was always at hand if needed. 

We would not hesitate to recommend Julia for any work you need doing on your pool. 

She is a joy to work with, friendly, enthusiastic and always smiling ! –".

Cal & Simon,

Camping Belle Vue.


"Julia was recommended to us when we were considering having our pool and surround renovated.

We have found her to be very helpful, friendly, efficient and professional.

She made what could have been a potentially stressful process very easy and uplifting.

We are very pleased with the result and wouldn’t hesitate in using her services in the future".

Steve & Jude Hill,

Le Parc.

"We have been using Julia’s services for 8 years now and would

recommend her to anyone. She does a smashing job at keeping our pool clean and has also done other jobs like changing the liner.  As we are renting out the house in the summer months it is very important to us that the pool is cleaned every week at changeover and that the person cleaning it is professional as there may be guests there.

We are very glad that Julia is cleaning ours!".

Michel & Inge Wets,

St.Sulpice d'Excideuil.

"We contacted Julia to look at a leak in our pool. It transpired that we needed our liner replaced, it was well overdue anyway, so we asked Julia to provide advice and suggestions for a replacement. As Julia got to know us and our situation, our house is Maison secondaire, she suggested changes to our pump, filtration and water, as well as the new liner, that would keep pool maintenance to a minimum and reduce the likelihood of 'green pool'.

We are delighted with the professional work and support given by Julia and her associates. Every deadline was met and Julia always responded quickly to any queries we had. We have recommended Julia to a neighbour who also used her services and have witnessed the same high levels of reliability and diligence we received."

Glenn Miller,


“In  May 2016 with no experience of how to look after a pool, we came to France and Julia was recommended to us. We decided on the full package & her service since then has been simply excellent!

We have found her extremely reliable & conscientious,

Her relaxed and friendly manner made it so easy for us to have use of a well kept pool all season and also aided in educating ourselves with what we as owners needed to know.

We had a minor problem with the liner but with her help it was quickly rectified.

Paul Childs,




Julia has been maintaining our pool for a number of years and we have always found her dependable and reliable.  She works independently and has managed to return our pool condition from very bad to as it should be without any fuss.  We have no hesitation in recommending her services.

The Taylor Family,

Granges d’Ans.
