4. This, right here, is a dramatic looking cantilevered pool – the centerpiece of a very modern golf course home in Portugal. The house itself is U-shaped and wraps around the pool, because why not?

5. Ooh-la-la. Moroccan tiles cover the bottom of this swimming pool. This is a Spanish villa in Andalucia.

6. And you can’t go past a pool with a waterfall. This cascading waterfall makes this swimming pool in the south of France (sigh!) especially refreshing. Oh, how the other half live…

7. This swimming pool is surrounded by a sculpture garden… and yet the pool itself is a sculpture all on its own.

7. Over to Turkey. The stripes of tile on the bottom of this pool at the Alavya Hotel look extra refreshing.

12. And, finally. This is possibly one of the most unique pools of all – and it’s a DIY! So all you need is a little bit of space, a really, really big tarp and… 70 bales of hay. This DIY can be found on 1001 Gardens 🙂
