There are a few facilities and features that always make a holiday property seem exclusive and luxurious (swimming pools, hot tubs, walled gardens to name but a few) and one thing that definitely falls into this category is a tennis court. Properties with private tennis courts immediately seem somehow lavish – even if the cost in no way reflects this! With that in mind, we’ve put together a selection of some of our favourite holiday rentals with tennis courts…
If your idea of a tennis court is a Wimbledon-style grass court with a table of strawberries and cream next to it, then look no further than the charming Fingals in Devon. Informal and relaxed yet luxurious and full of character, this 10-bedroomed Grade II listed country house is situated in a beautiful valley and provides the perfect setting for a laidback family holiday. And never mind the tennis court, what about the croquet lawn?
Built in 1876 on the shores of Loch Ness, this Benedictine Abbey has been beautifully converted to create a number of stylish self catering properties. Aside from the tennis court, the communal facilities at the Monastery also include a swimming pool, sauna & steam room, gym, snooker, table tennis, boules, croquet, giant chess, badminton & archery. Not a bad selection!
If you’re a large group of friends looking for somewhere you can spend your days lounging by the pool, playing games and BBQing your meals as you look out over stunning countryside, Arnauton is for you. Lovingly renovated and housed within 5 acres of grounds in the Midi-Pyrenees region, this is a gorgeous setting and is truly a place for relaxed and stress-free living.
The Spanish eco-farm
Back to Spain and the breathtaking landscape of Extremadura. La Lancha is an extraordinary place – a self-proclaimed ‘eco-luxury farmhouse’ set within 30 hectares of olive groves, fruit orchards and fields of Merino sheep. The grounds are truly exceptional in a way that makes the swimming pool and tennis court seem almost commonplace! If you want to take your friends and family to somewhere absolutely unique then this is the place.
Villa Alexandra has so many wonderful features that it is hard to say which is the most appealing. Is it the cool, classic interior and stunning architecture, the serene location, the large walled garden full of scented blossoms or the pampering for which it is famous? Whichever it is, you will fall in love with this piece of paradise. Just outside the house (which sleeps 12) is a 20m by 5m swimming pool, which has a ‘beach’ area that children will love. The grounds also contain a clay tennis court which is well-maintained with racquets available.
