Make a splash: 5 properties with indoor pools, from Santa Fe to St. Moritz — all from Christie’s International Real Estate

Dating from the 1920s, the Casa La Luna estate is one of Santa Fe’s most historic residences, built in the Southwestern Pueblo Revival style. Just minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza, the 13,400-square-foot property sits on 10 acres of land, on a hilltop offering panoramic views. An indoor infinity pool overlooks the surrounding high desert landscape, with additional features including six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. 

John Gays House is a Grade II listed manor house dating from the Tudor period, with later Queen Anne, Georgian and Victorian additions. The eight-bedroom residence combines traditional features with 21st century amenities, including a glass-enclosed indoor swimming pool complex. Mature gardens cover 20.75 acres, and include large lawns, an orchard, lake, stables, a manège, paddocks, and a horse exercising track. 

Based on traditional Engadine architecture, the Alpine chalet Chesa Cherina is situated on St. Moritz’s Suvretta slope, renowned for its world-class skiing. Spread across five levels, the chalet features 10 bedrooms, with a detached guesthouse nearby. The lower level has been transformed into a private retreat dedicated to wellbeing, with facilities including a hammam, sauna, massage room, gym, and indoor pool, which opens out into the Swiss mountain air. 

Located in the exclusive Quinta da Beloura resort near Lisbon, this contemporary villa spans three floors, offering five bedrooms. Amenities include two private swimming pools: an indoor lap pool, on the home’s recreational level, and an outdoor pool, set in grounds that feature a lake and outdoor entertaining areas. 

This 460-acre estate is set in pastoral surrounds, with views across the Catskill Mountains. At the centre of the estate, a Georgian-style manor features an indoor, mosaic-tiled swimming pool, with a seating area and kitchen, two mirrored cabanas with full spa bathrooms, and a large, redwood sauna. The extensive grounds include world-class equestrian facilities, lawns, ponds and white-fenced paddocks.
