Staying at La Villa, exploring the whole Battambang city, Cambodia is truly easy and the reason is obviously its strategic location. The hotel is situated near about 15 minutes driving distance from Battambang airport. The city center of Battambang is very nearby and it takes hardly few minutes to reach the hotel from Sangker River and Wat Kandal.
Situated on the banks of the Sangker River in Battambang, in the west of Cambodia, the hotel La Villa is a haven for peace and tranquility.
La Villa was constructed in the 1930's by a tradesman from Battambang, this colonial architecture was very fashionable during the French colonial period. The proprietor, Mr Eap Heo later bequeathed his home to his two youngest children who then lived in the residence till the coup d'etat in 1975.
After the Khmer rouge period, the house became the general quarters for the Vietnamese army. It was given to a Cambodian general after their departure.
For many years, the house was partially leased and squatted before it was sold in 2004 to a young expatriate couple who were mesmerized by the charm and beauty of this ancient house.
After significant renovations, the house and its outbuildings regained its splendor in the form of a charming 7 bedroom guest house with a swimming pool that will captivate anyone that would like to re-live and experience an Indochinese atmosphere. We have recreated the same ambiance that the house would have had in the 1930's with Art deco furniture, electrical equipment from that era such as the fans, and old photos that have changed in color due to the passing of time.
