Anyone for tennis? Exquisite One Off Places with tennis courts on site
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…
