Lovingly and expertly restored, Domaine de la Hille still has a historic touch, with original features such as wooden ceiling beams and stone fireplaces as well as antique furniture. Original works of art are dotted through the house and comfortable furniture is aplenty.
Outside in the well-maintained gardens a 13m x 6m swimming pool with bisazza emerald tiles can be found, and a soft-impact shaded tennis court is hidden away in the grounds. Guests may also like to benefit from the large vegetable garden packed full of seasonal produce. Bikes, golf clubs, tennis racquets, volleyball, archery sets, badminton, boules, yoga equipment and weights can all be provided to make the most of the large outdoor space.
