    It is so beautiful and gave me that tingling feeling all over, it looks amaziing.
    I will definitely make myself one, once I’m on my new piece of land . . I think
    I’ll start with a smaller version for me and my dogs, but that looks so great.

    The construction of the pool is inspiring,
    could you please tell me the cost of the entire construction ?

      Thanks for your nice feedback! The rough total cost was not more than 5000euros, including the materials and the excavation done by the digger. The main cost however is the EPDM liner, so the price will vary very much depending on the size of the pool.

    Hello, we are moving to Braga in October. Is there a company that can do this? Also, do we need to file a permit with the local government?

      Hi! We only know a company that is based in our area, so I suppose you would need to search for it more locally. About the permit it also varies between different councils, so it’s best to talk to the local architect. In Coimbra area you don’t need an extra permit for the pool, as long as it is up to 50m2. That’s a law for the regular swimming pools, but the natural pool is even easier, because you can always claim that it’s just a pond. Good luck!

    Hi guys! Such a useful blog, thank you for sharing 🙏🏼 we hope to build something similar. Could you share where you bought your liner from? We’re desperately looking for one! Thank you.

      Thanks for this nice feedback. Here is the link to the shop we have our liner from: They are based in Spain, but delivering to Portugal. Good luck!
