Local Information

As soon as you arrive in Morocco you realise that you are in a different world. This is Africa yet was once part of Arabia. It is a land of deserts, snow capped mountains, dramatic coastline with historic old ports, ancient cities, noisy bustling markets, dusty roads and the mezzuen calling to prayer. Everywhere you look there is an absorbing feast for the eyes.

Nestled in the Ourika valley located in the foothills of the High Atlas mountains approximately 30 km from Marrakech. The valley clearly exhibits Morocco’s vivid diversity with it’s olive groves, vineyards and cherry trees and is home to abundant wildlife and exquisite flowers.

Take a day trip or two to Marrakech and sample the bustle and excitement of the “red-walled city” from the narrow streets of the old Medina and Djemaa El Fna Square to historical monuments such as Koutoubia, Bahia Palace, the Saadian Tombs or the new European modern district called Gueliz or Ville Nouvelle which host modern restaurants, fast food chains and big brand stores.There are snake charmers & story tellers, monkey trainers & a fabulous food market. The water sellers add to the colour & the food stands are too many to count. There is also a thriving night life that will keep the young occupied into the small hours.

Nearby is the attractive village of Arhbalou with it’s multitude of small restaurants hugging the water’s edge. Located at an altitude of 1500m, this is an ideal place for those seeking cooler air during Marrakech’s long hot season. Indulge the senses whilst sipping Moroccan tea and sampling pastries that fuse classic French traditions with Arabic flavours.

For those seeking a more energetic lifestyle there is hiking, trekking, biking, rafting and riding or even skiing nearby in the Atlas Mountains.

Our View

We are thrilled to have Dar Tamazerte in our portfolio of houses just outside Marrakech. It is a peaceful and utterly spoiling place, a truly beautiful house set in a magnificent walled garden with charming staff to ensure you have a wonderful relaxing stay.

The garden is beautifully laid out with lots of different ares for children (and adults!) to explore, this much green in North Africa is a real treat.

A large pool near the house is perfect for cooling off after a trip to the souk, the stunning comfortable beds by the pool shaded by beautiful white linen curtains. Just heaven!

Deep reds punctuate here and there, a reflection of the deep red spices and soil that surround this area. The rooms have doors out on to the terrace and the beautiful garden has an abundance of fruit trees, olive trees, deliciously fragrant jasmine, roses and much much more. An oasis which attracts a variety of song birds.

The bedrooms are cool and comfortable, with lovely bathrooms and a great living area in the middle of the house. Outside there are endless places to sit, dine or simply relax on the lovely terrace surrounded by sounds of the day.

Choose from the four different dining areas- the inside dining room with fireplace for cosy evenings, a rooftop terrace for dining out under the stars, a shaded garden terrace and an open air shaded terrace. The table are always laid with fresh flowers and linen.

The shared tennis court completes this as one of the nicest places to stay outside of Marrakech.
