“Peaceful oasis away from the centre of Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We chose this hotel for our last 2 nights in Marrakech for some total relaxation after 4 nights in a traditional riad in the medina, and 3 nights on the coast at Essaouira - a perfect combination! Sadly the weather was rainy and quite chilly otherwise we would have loved sunbathing around the pools in the delightful gardens, but we thoroughly enjoyed the roaring log fires made up for us in our room, also in the dining room, at night. Our room (Joubillette) was a bit basic for the price we paid, and we found it and the bathroom a little dark and didn`t much like the feel of the cobbled stone floor in the bedroom, but it was totally private, colourful and all spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed - imagine it must be a lovely cool retreat in the summer heat!
What made our stay so enjoyable was the completely relaxed and homely ambience of the place, and most of all charming Fatima`s quiet hospitality and wonderful home cooking (we had one lunch and 2 dinners while we were there and they were absolutely delicious!) which made us very sad to leave. It is easy to see why it is so popular with families with small children - absolute paradise!

I chose this hotel for two nights at the end of our stay in Morocco. What a relaxing getaway! Everything is top notch--the decor of the room and the common areas, the landscaping, the two pools and the service.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Suite Toubkal, which is definitely the largest and poshest set of rooms we've e...

We stayed one night at this B&B and were thrilled, the apartment was of a very high standard, the bed superb, the decor suptuous, the grounds and gardens very well kept and the swimming pools very inviting. We were made to feel at home straight away, the service and the food were excellent. Definitely worth the price!

Just returned from a wonderful stay in villa vanilla, a warm welcome awaits from Florence who was very helpful and gave good advice during our stay, I would like to say thank you to the manager for the memorable guided visit she arranged for us, it was the best way to explore Marrakesh.
Other than serving our food, they completely left us alone and made us feel like the villa was our own home, the place is beautifully manicured and kept spotless.
I really recommend this great Accommodation.

We stayed in Ville Vanille for 2 nights in October. The place is superb. It is a perfect getaway from the hussle and bustle of Marrakech. (Taxi was approximately 100 Dirham to Jemaa el Fna but you can get it cheaper if you organise it yourself). The swimming pools were nicely hidden away and very private. The breakfast served on your own terrace was amazing. The best chicken tagine we had in the whole of Morocco was here (and believe me we searched the whole country to find a better one!!!!).
The staff were brilliant (especially the little lady who served us our food) and were very helpful. Florence went out of her way to help too.
We definately will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are very private.

We decided to split our week of holiday in Marrakech in 4 days in a Riad in the Medina and 3 days outside the city. Based on tripadvisor reviews we opted for Villa Vanille. As a family with grown-up kids (12-16-17) we decided to go for the suite Toubkal.
Unfortunately the weather was not so good, so we couldn´t fully enjoy the garden, the nice swimming pools and a breakfast or dinner outside.
Still Villa Vanille was a marvelous stay because of the beautiful setting, the comfortable housing and most of all the extremely nice and professional welcome of Florence and Fatima.
They were always available for arranging a cab, a guided tour we took into the Ourika valley, a massage in the Hamam, ...
We took all our meals in the Villa, and as many other reviews have shown, this is really the main asset of the estate. Fatima offers you a choice of different local dishes and prepares them with love. A very good price/quality tops it of and you never ever consider going to Marrakech for the diner any more ...

We (5 adults & 3 kids) had a great stay at Villa Vanille for six nights. It was extremely hot so we were pleased to hang out at the Villa most days. The pools were brilliant, breakfast was divine, lunches and dinners were also exceptional. We felt as though all our meals were home cooked and the chef was even happy to show us how to cook tagine meals. We only went out for dinner twice during our stay as the staff were so flexible with meal times, the quality of the meal was great and we enjoyed dinner chillaxing by the pool. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: The perfect family rooms were Sahara and Toutok
