Marrakech house description

Eat, swim, dance, celebrate, chat, explore, and create memories in an authentic Moroccan paradise. Dar Benfredi sleeps up to 10 people.


Imagine a Moroccan feast, prepared by your own personal cook, Fatima, and shared at an outdoor table shaded by opulent gardens. While you spoon lamb tagine onto your plate, smell the tropical fragrance of cascading bougainvillea and listen to the breeze ruffling the palm fronds and the branches of olive trees.

Imagine TWO private swimming pools—one dappled by the garden’s lush trees and foliage, the other protected from weather by a central courtyard (in the traditional Morrocan villa-riad architectural style). During the hazy, languid Moroccan afternoon, these pools are a perfectly-chilled refuge, kept immaculate and sparkling by the property’s caretaker/gardener.

No eyes can see in while you swim, as the pool areas are completely secluded.

Imagine a cool evening in the chillier months, spent gathered around the fireplace hearth with wine in hand.

And imagine a luxurious night’s sleep between silky sheets, in 6 bedrooms, each with distinct personalities, amenities, and color palates.


If you search for an authentic Moroccan experience, Dar Benfredi is your answer.

The influence of Morroco’s legendary design sensibilities is everywhere at this villa. Inside and out.

Soothing earth tones of white, cream and taupe highlight its distinctive architectural details—like arched windows, carved doors, and geometric art. Royal purples, rich reds and goldenrod add a vibrant accent.

And, of course, the clay that comprises the villa’s exterior is in the authentic Moroccan style, and blends the villa into its beautiful natural surroundings.

The 5000 sq. m. gardens at Dar Benfredi, and its rural setting, make it feel worlds away from the bustle of the Red City. But in truth, it’s just 15 minutes away by vehicle. Spend the day soaking up Marrakech’s legendary energy, then return to relax with indulgent evenings at the villa.


There are many! If you book Dar Benfredi, you receive, at no extra cost:

- Transfer to the airport

- Moroccan breakfast every morning

- Housekeeper / Maid / Cook (meals made with products you purchase)

- Gardener

- Caretaker


- Multi-purpose outdoor fitness machine (in a totally private space near the pool)

- Personalized advice for your trips and excursions into Marrakech and beyond.


Any time! The Dar Benfredi is beautiful across all seasons. In warm months, the pools are heavenly; in winter, the fireplace takes the chill out of the evenings.
