Melody Hill offers a peaceful and tranquil setting for mind, body and soul integration. Total harmonious relaxation for the body, mind and spirit.

Our grounds and facilities include a studio, swimming pool, labyrinth, river, orchard, dam, vegetable gardens and beautiful buildings, designed and built by us over 20 years, with love and passion.
