Restored French Colonial Charm

Battambang, Rattanak Srok, Cambodia
1 Bedroom, sleeps 2
From USD $55
The owners have recreated a French Colonial ambiance with art deco furniture, period electrical equipment and photos that transport the visitor back in time to relive an Indochinese atmosphere. After significant renovations, the house and its outbuildings regained its splendour in the form of a charming 7 bedroom guest house with a swimming pool. Guests can truly relive a bygone era and are centrally located to enjoy the many historic attractions nearby.
Situated on the banks of the Sangker River in Battambang, in the west of Cambodia, the hotel La Villa is a haven of peace, tranquillity and restored historical charms. The guest house is a restored 1930’s colonial residence filled with Art Deco and antiques that will appeal to historical connoisseurs.
Even the electric fans are period and the whole experience should appeal to those with an appreciation for a sense of history and culture over plastic and action movies.
Everywhere one looks there is a feeling of having been transported back in time, and that feeling lingers even when one leaves the premises to explore the surrounds. The museums, temples and river cruises are all essential activities to partake in.
Completing the French colonial hat trick is an in-house restaurant that serves European and Asian cuisine and a selection of wines and spirits.
Seven Rooms to choose from. 5 rooms featuring four poster beds and 2 with traditional Khmer wooden beds. All rooms have tv’s, air conditioning, wardrobes, fans and a private toilet with bath.
Situated in the back of the villa covered by a glass roof with a design from the 1900's, the restaurant offers both European and Asian cuisine as well as a large choice of barbecue grilled meat. The restaurant can accommodate up to 40 guests in the outside terrace, the garden, or in the air conditioned dining area covered by the elegant glass rooftop.
A selection of cocktails, spirits and wines are available at the bar situated in the air-conditioned section of the restaurant. The bar is open between 11:00 am to 9:30 pm.

"Beautiful old colonial building near the centre of town. Rooms are just delightful with heaps of space and great antique furniture. Lovely pool. Just a great place to stay. Don't miss the Circus - if your timetable is flexible check the days the Circus has performances and get out there for the show and dinner - great experience." Mahout Mal, Melbourne, Australia
"La Villa is all about charme: beautiful colonial furniture and decoration, huge rooms, cozy atmosphere and very personal treat (especially if you speak French). Food at the restaurant is just amazing, you should definitely have dinner there. There is really little to see in Battambang (although the surroundings are beautiful) but spending a couple of nights at la Villa will make your trip in Cambodia even more unforgettable." Giorgionet, Milano, Italy
