The woman, named as Fadila, was getting in the pool while on holiday with her family near Marseille when a member of staff reportedly told other guests to get out.
She claims her husband was then contacted by the site’s owner, who allegedly told him to prevent her going swimming for the remainder of their stay.
The couple also say the man gave them a €490 (£440) bill to pay to have the pool emptied and cleaned. The fee also included compensation for damages because the site would be out of use for two days.
Fadila told the United Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) charity: ‘I was disappointed, shocked, wounded by the fact that someone could be so hypocritical and wicked because of a burkini.’
A burkini is a modesty swimsuit that covers everything but the wearer’s face, hands and feet.
The CCIF claims Fadila’s was specially designed for swimming and therefore could not have caused a hygiene issue.
The couple refused to pay the bill to which the owner allegedly reacted by taking the money from their account without issuing an invoice.
