A hammam, a home theater, and a boccie court are among the amenities. Tennis enthusiasts will appreciate the red-clay tennis court, which was built to French Open standards. A second tennis court located indoors doubles as a neoclassical-themed ballroom. Available through Marcie Hartley, Hilton & Hyland, 310.691.5950, www.marciehartley.com
