Our View

One of three beautiful houses on a stylish and private estate set in vast gardens filled with lavender, orange blossom, bougainvillea and olive trees.

The interiors have a contemporary Moroccan feel, designed by Philip Hooper. He has really done his work searching the local souks for original pieces of art, furniture, pots and rugs. The three bedrooms are large and comfortable with Berber rugs on the floors and yummy lotions and potions in the bathrooms. There’s a full spa too so do book in for some treatments while you stay.

There is a huge tent in the garden complete with comfortable seating which is a great place to gather in the early evening, a place to collapse in after a long lunch – or just the perfect spot to sit with a coffee out of the sun. The pool is surrounded by enormous sun beds, day beds, tables – and there are also sun hats! The lawn is magnificent – it’s such a treat to find a house with such an expanse. Great for small people to run to their heart’s content.

The complete estate covers 20,000msq with ancient olive trees, date palms and orange and pomegranate trees. There are 2 other houses on the estate, which can’t be seen from this spot, but can be rented together, perfect for a big celebration.

If you feel like a trip into the middle of Marrakech there’s a car (7 seater) included with the house until 8pm every day so do make the most of that. They will also pick you up from and drop you at the airport making your transfer so smooth.
