About the villa

Set amidst perfectly manicured gardens of lush lawns and cascading olive groves, Villa Shamsum is elegantly poised. Accommodation at this supremely comfortable house is all on one level split between the main building and an additional canvas lodge. The main house is incredibly spacious and decorated in a contemporary style, painted in a cool pastel colour palette with beautiful portrait photography adorning the walls. A bright and airy living space offers comfortable seating and a modern fireplace, alongside an indoor dining area and a fabulous kitchen where a dedicated team of staff prepare three meals per day for all guests. Sliding glass doors lead to a charming terrace that is furnished for al fresco dining and relaxing. In the centre of the lawn a 15m long pool takes pride of place, paired with a poolside pergola offering soft seating in the shade and a hammock for outdoor snoozing. 

There are four spacious and beautifully decorated bedrooms within the main house, including the master suite with a freestanding bath tub; the canvas lodge offers further accommodation for four guests including a double bedroom and a bunk bedroom, which is perfect for children. The canvas lodge, set in the southeast corner of the grounds is a unique offering that allows guests to be immersed in nature. Another unique and important element of Villa Shamsum is the fact that it uses geothermal and solar energy, making it a positive energy house. This simply means that the villa produces more energy than it consumes through a special air cooling system and a solar heated pool. Elsewhere within the grounds there is a clay boules court, table tennis and an open air cinema room, meanwhile the delights of Marrakech are just 15 minutes away.

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.
