The Owner and his crew of neighbours, missus and cook were fantastic and offered a service next to none, which made the Marrakech experience the best I ever had.
The location is 10km away from the main centre reference point, however, what it lacks in perfect location in terms of accessibility, it makes up for in terms of tranquility, comfort, and pleasantry, which greatly outweighs the location factor. The fact that the owner was available to pick us up at any time (24hrs in the day) and take us anywhere we wanted, including a trip to the mountains, providing the best Moroccan cuisine with drinks at a cost next to nothing made the whole experience very pleasant.
There is a pool, which for me was good and an outdoor open relaxation area with the inside of the villa resembling an outdoor spa resort due to the open plan ambience with decor not modern but given that non-contemporary flavour, with bamboo shoots and sticks and raffia utilised extensively, in the mist of outdoor plants and flowers that shoot in the sunlight, again given that outdoor nature feeling. The pool was complemented by a sauna, which is probably the hottest I have ever experience; again a quick 10 minute stint in the sauna before jumping into the pool allows you to revitalise after a day in the mountains, prior to dinner, before hitting the main spots of Marrakech at night.
If you are a non-contemporary person that craves ambience with hints of nature, whilst someone plays a local musical instrument (Musician invited courtesy of the owner), as you put your feet up and watch the sun set and the heat cooled to lower temperatures, in the company of 6 friends, with a fantastic host, then this is definitely the place for you.
