The foothills of the South Carolina mountains provide a relaxed country atmosphere, making the Villas of Foxwood Hills a delightful retreat. Enjoy fishing and boating on Lake Hartwell and a nine- hole golf course. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts are scattered throughout the 2,600-acre resort property. Be sure to visit the cities of Asheville, North Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia. Both are within a two-hour drive from the resort.
