About the villa

Within easy reach of the vibrant souks of Marrakech as well as the magnificent scenery of the Atlas Mountains and the Ourika Valley, the villa offers a very private, quiet retreat in a location that allows guests to combines a sophisticated city break with exploring the great outdoors. The villa is built around a traditional courtyard with fountain, from which the bedrooms are accessed. All four bedrooms are of a good size with en suite bath or shower rooms and open to the terraces with tables and chairs and to the gardens. One double and one twin bedroom are accessed off a hallway in a corner of the courtyard and the second and third double bedroom are accessed from a second hallway in another corner of the courtyard. Each bedroom has a furnished terrace. The rest of the house comprises an elegant sitting room with dining area. French doors opening to the courtyard on one side and terrace with soft seating and  gardens on the other. The kitchen is well equipped and used by the staff and the shaded dining terrace is accessed from near the kitchen. On the upper level of the house is a rooftop terrace offering unparalleled panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains, the perfect place for sundowners after a long day of sightseeing.  

The cook at Villa Mauresque prepares three meals a day.  Madja enjoys cooking for the guests immensely, using fresh ingredients from the vegetable patch such as tomatoes and aubergines, as well as lemons and oranges from the trees at the villa. She prepares a variety of dishes from Moroccan tagines and assorted salads, to Moroccan breads and a range of beautiful desserts - her favourite dessert is tart a l'orange. She also enjoys taking a lot of care over the setting in which guests enjoy their meals. The style of the table settings is different for each meal and thoughtfully planned between the dining room and the outdoor terrace. The tables are laid with block printed tablecloths from India and ceramics, glassware and cutlery from Morocco, while freshly cut roses and herbs from the garden add the finishing touches. 

The extensive, beautifully designed gardens with table tennis leading to the large private pool with shaded soft seating and pool house. This magnificent property is very popular - early booking recommended. 


'Wonderful villa, very well looked after, superb cooking and relaxing and tranquil setting. The Chittick family had a wonderful time. Hope to see you soon again!'

"The villa is beautiful and we had a very pleasant and relaxing stay. The staff at the villa were amazing and we couldn't fault the food as it was delicious. The team were very helpful when organising taxi's to get into the main town and were always on time. I'd highly recommend a stay here."
