We organized a family reunion in Marrakech and needed a private villa with a pool, AC and internet. Dar Safia is perfect for this purpose. The villa is located about 6 km from the ramparts of Marrakech on the route d'Amizmiz.
Dar Safia sits on 5000 sq meters of landscaped garden surrounded by tall cypresses. There is a lovely large pool, gym equipment under a berber tent and a huge semi-covered patio for outdoor eating. There are many lounge chairs and big umbrellas dispersed throughout the garden.
The villa is laid out in two wings adjoining the central living areas and is decorated with Moroccan furniture and carpets. The 5 large guest suites on the ground floor can easily sleep 3 people per room. Each has an en suite bathroom, fridge, safe, TV and AC. Free wi-fi is also available.
The French owners live on the premises (upstairs over the main living room area) and tend to your every whim. They are gracious, friendly and discreet.
The only downside was that we did not have use of the kitchen as this is a maison d'hôte, you are not renting the entire villa. There is a cook but you will do better to go in town to eat.
The villa is located close to the Oasiria, a water park with lots of water slides for all ages and many pools. Great place if you have children and want to spend a day picnicing and having fun.
This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to be close to Marrakech but not in the midst of the hustle and bustle. It is about a 10-minute drive to the city walls.
