Property description

Luxury detached villa which sleeps 6 people in comfort in 3 en-suite bedrooms (1 double and 2 twin) with air-con and heating. There are also two sofa beds in the lounge area. The villa was built in 2009 and has a floor area of approximately 140 square metres. The villa is set in a large, private garden on the boutique Apple Gardens Resort, complete with private pool, sun terrace and rooftop terrace with stunning view of the Atlas Mountains. A beautifully peaceful setting, ideal to relax after visiting the sights of Marrakech. Apple Gardens is a traffic free resort - covered parking is available at the entrance to the development, less than a minute's walk from our villa. Only 15-20 minutes drive from Marrakech centre, the resort includes 2 tennis courts, a small par 3 golf course, a children's play area, a small football pitch and a 1.8km jogging route through the beautiful lush gardens. There is also a boutique hotel on the development, which has a restaurant and spa.

The villa is built to European standards with all modern conveniences and is based on traditional Moroccan designs.

Situation: The villa is situated around 15-20 minutes to the west of Marrakech. There are some small local shops a few minutes walk from the villa for everyday essentials and a greater choice at the local village just a few minutes drive away, where there are cafes, a bakery and many local fruit sellers. A large local traditional market is held at a nearby local village every Saturday. A large supermarket which is open every day is situated 10 minutes drive from the villa. A few minutes drive or short walk from the villa is a lovely restaurant and riad (called Weedan) with open air pools.

Things to do: Marrakech is a vibrant and charming city at the foot of the majestic Atlas Mountains and based around an ancient oasis. With 333 days of sunshine per year and very easy access from northern Europe, it offers something for everyone. The year round sunshine, amazing culture, golf, mountains, gardens, restaurants and night-life also make the city too good to miss.

No visit to Marrakech would be complete without a visit to the Jemaa el-Fna square. This UNESCO World Heritage site holds a large market in the morning, selling freshly squeezed fruit, nuts, plants, etc. After sunset, the air fills with smoke from the grilling meat and the aroma of spices, and you can watch musicians, storytellers, dancers, snake charmers and fortune-tellers.

Other must-see sights include the souks (markets), the Koutoubia Mosque, the Menara, Majorelle and Aguedal Gardens and the Palais Bahia.

The Oasiria Water Park provides a fun day out - situated on the outskirts of Marrakech this water park has something for everyone - heated quiet pool, 3 water slides plus the Kamikaze slide, a pirate ship, the lazy river and 5 restaurants, all set in lush gardens.

The Ourkira valley, 42 miles south east of Marrakech in the Atlas mountain foothills, is a popular day trip, with cafes, shops and small hotels clinging to the hillside. It is possible to walk up the valley to view 7 waterfalls.

The villa is built to European standards and is based on traditional Moroccan designs. This concept is continued inside the villa where modern appliances and equipment blend with traditional Moroccan brasswear, fabrics, mosaics and furniture.

Internet access can be obtained at various places on the Apple Gardens Resort, including from the reception building less than a minutes walk from our villa and can also be arranged in our villa by purchasing a 'dongle' for a small fee.

Our villa is a short drive from the centre of Marrakech just off the road to Fez (N8). The villa is part of the Apple Gardens Resort development, which was designed by one of Morocco's top architects. The development was completed in January 2010 and consists of 51 villas, a 6 hole par 3 golf course, 2 clay tennis courts, a children's play area and a small football pitch.

The centre of Marrakech is a 20 minute drive away, where you can visit the famous sites such as the Djemaa El Fna square, the souks, the Koutoubia mosque and the botanical gardens.

The Atlas mountains are approximately one hour's drive away and can be seen from the villa.

There are many famous golf clubs around Marrakech, including the Royal Golf Club, the Amelkis Golf Club and the Palmerie Golf Club.

Marrakech Menara airport is situated 4 miles from Marrakech and is a 30 minute drive from the villa.

As well as the delights of Marrakech city there are many other things to see and do around the area from family water parks, desert adventures, camel rides or cycling.

Golf: It is the combination of the excellent weather and water from the Atlas Mountains that makes Marrakech such a fantastic location for golf. Despite its proximity to one of the largest deserts in the world, the water table is high and Marrakech is surprisingly verdant, something that can surprise new visitors who often expect a dusty and dirty city.

There are currently 5 golf courses in Marrakech with a further 7 having been granted licences. 3 of the courses have been around for a while. Firstly, the Royal Golf Club was built in the 1920s and was a favourite of the late King Hassan II. The Amelkis Golf Club is the next oldest course you should play when visiting Marrakech. It has 36 holes, both par 72 and around 6,500m and is located directly opposite the Royal Golf Club.

The third well established course is the Palmeraie Golf Club (18 holes, par 72, 6,214m). It is based in the Palmeraie Oasis and, like all other courses here, is stunning and beautifully maintained.

Ski: Marrakech also offers the chance of excellent skiing on the High Atlas mountain range, at the Oukaimeden ski resort, just over 40 miles or an hour's drive from the city. Oukaimeden is usually visited as a day-trip from Marrakech and offers all sorts of services and lots of fun. Oukaïmeden was first opened as a ski resort in 1936 by the Marrakech French Alpine Club. It is located at 10,738 feet above sea level (3,273 meters) and is the highest ski resort in Africa and the best equipped in Morocco, as well as one of the most popular in the continent. The snow season is quite variable and lasts a yearly average of 120 days, from mid-December to mid-March, although snow is quite reliable from January until late March or early April. The Oukaïmeden ski resort has a relatively modest skiing area, of around 300 hectares, but very interesting, including 3 black, 8 red, 4 blue and 3 green trails.
