Few people would look for such a place in Prague. This quiet oasis amidst deep forest hides sporting grounds of an international renown. The Motol tennis club has had a tradition since 1966 and a number of leading Czech players were active in it. The dominant feature of the renovated grounds is the clubhouse building, extended with office, wellness, fitness and hotel areas. The local restaurant terrace offers a unique view of the valley across ten tennis courts. A hidden corridor leads from the clubhouse changing rooms all the way to the new tennis hall, embedded unobtrusively in the sloping terrain. The resort offers various types of accommodation from hotel rooms to suites in the slope to private villas with a garden designed for top-level sportspeople. The new buildings are mostly designed with wooden panelling and up to two storeys high with respect to the natural character of the site.
