About the villa

Dar Akhdar is a large and luxurious villa, built in a unique Moorish style yet benefiting from excellent modern amenities. The property is situated in the Ourika Valley, just twenty minutes from the Grand Place, surrounded by a large, lush garden with breathtaking mountain views. Despite being so close to Marrakech, the beautiful green valley is excellently preserved. The entrance to the house can be found through an idyllic Andalucian courtyard, filled with vibrant citrus trees and a refreshing fountain. The interiors are grand and spacious, impeccably laid out with Moroccan-inspired decor. The villa boasts seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and ample living space, ideally designed for total comfort and luxury for groups of family and friends. The colourful bedrooms are either on the ground floor of the villa or in the Pavilion, which is a few steps away in the garden. 

The villa's garden is abundant in sweet-smelling roses, bougainvillea and olive, pomegranate and banana trees. It is also home to exotic birds, butterflies, and Leila and Charlie - the tortoise couple who are drawn to this much-loved garden. The property is fully staffed and boasts a fantastic cook service for a truly luxurious Moroccan escape.
