Luxuriantly landscaped gardens encircle this elegant house, offering a very high standard of comfort and excellent service. Within the grounds, a swimming pool is served by a pool changing house and overlooked by a poolside dining pergola; and a tennis court (shared with other houses on this private estate) keep the active occupied. Within the house are high-ceilinged rooms, sumptuously styled with rich fabrics, eclectic antiques and books, and equipped with all mod-cons from air conditioning to WiFi and TV. A gracious dining room opens to a shaded al fresco dining area. The dining room is open-plan to the supremely elegant living room, which itself opens out to the main garden terrace beautifully furnished with soft seating,  perfect for pre-dinner drinks. 

Each of the two ground floor bedrooms also opens out to its own terrace. The Master bedroom on the first floor opens out to the comfortable roof terrace, forming an outdoor living room with sofas and table and framing fabulous views of the Atlas Mountains.

Famous for its stunning city lights, colourful tanneries, sunsets and mint tea, this North African country is one of only three nations which boast both Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines. This makes Morocco an ideal location for a wide range of getaways, from beach lounging on the Atlantic coast to mountain hiking in the Atlas Mountains.

Graced with intricate Islamic architecture, desert scenery, and an intriguing soundscape, from the buzz of mopeds to the keening Muslim call to prayer, our perfectly located villas in Morocco provide visitors with the base for a richly textured experience.
