    I couldn't handle that. I'd be dead! Quite simply, being subjected to extreme heat like that, for extended periods, isn't healthy

    Here, it's heading towards being the same as it was yesterday. Apparently though, tomorrow's supposed to be much cooler!

    That is where the pool becomes extremely useful.
    You also need to remember that the houses are built differently here, so the hous is very unlikely to get above 26 degrees.

    I don't particularly like the heat, but as long as you stay indoors during the hottest times it is perfectly manageable.
    I am thinking of installing a basic water mist spraying system on the terrace if it keeps this up though.

    Yes, but unless the pool is enclosed under a roof, you've still got the sun blazing down on you, so no matter how 'cool' I felt in the water, I still wouldn't want to be sat there, exposed to (undoubtedly) unhealthy 38-degree heat, which is why I generally don't 'do' pools, and avoid beach resorts and very hot countries like the plague.

    You really need to be a sun worshipper, to enjoy using a pool in the summer months, especially in somewhere such as the south of France - and I'm far from that.

    Point taken about the houses being different, which I fully accept. It was the same with our house in Italy, which had marble floors (no carpets) and wooden window shutters throughout, to keep the sun out during the day, so therefore it was always be about 15 degrees cooler in there, than it was outside

    26 degrees, inside our house here, however, which has very much been optimised for use in much cooler climates, would be [and is] decidedly uncomfortable.

    It's dropped to a 'mere' 34C here now!

    Poor old pooch is really not enjoying it. I hosed him down with the garden sprayer yesterday. He loved that! I'll do it again shortly.

    39.5 degrees C here today according to a digital thermometer.
    Meteo France have issued a heat wave warning. If it keeps this up, summer is going to be a tough one.

    The house is relatively cool at 24 degrees C, fortunately. The wonders of wooden shutters....

    Same here. And I'm suffering from a heavy summer cold: runny nose, sore throat, congestion. Basically not wanting to do anything; even listening to music!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
