About the Property

Country courtyard house with swimming pool.

The house is available for rental for a minimum stay of 6 nights. Rental rates for more than 2 weeks are negotiable.

The property is one of a small number of exceptional villas designed by one of the country's leading architects, Karim el Achak, in a style influenced by traditional Berber architecture. It was completed in early 2010 and its interiors reflect a mix of Moroccan influences and European style and comfort.

There are 4 air-conditioned double/twin bedrooms, each with an en suite bath, shower and dressing area, and terraces with views of the Atlas Mountains. 3 bedrooms are off the courtyard on the ground floor; the fourth bedroom is on the first floor with its own dressing room and private terrace. The British hand-made beds are 190cm long and either 90cm [single] or 180cm [super-king] wide.

Thereis also an additional flat with twin beds, sitting room, bathroom and terrace which could be used by quest's staff or by children.

The salon, with dining area and fireplace, has large French windows on three sides leading on to the courtyard and terraces. The sitting room, also with fireplace, has Sky TV, HD Television, a PS3/BlueRay DVD player, surround-sound, laptop, fax and printer.

The kitchen and laundry are equipped with all modern appliances and laundry services are available.

In the courtyard a traditional pool and fountain are surrounded with scented trees and climbing plants with orange trees in the corners. The wide arcades around the courtyard provide a cool living area in hot weather.

Beside the swimming pool, about 50m from the house, is a large tiled terrace equipped with comfortable sun-loungers and a shaded area with seating. In the pool house is a shower, basin and WC. There is a drinks fridge, dining table, chairs and barbecue. Towels and pool accessories are available. The pool area is surrounded by a thick hedge with access via three gates, which can be locked if children are staying.

Dar Avellana has staff whom, by arrangement, could provide help with transport, cooking and child-minding. Car parking is provided on site – a hire car is advisable for larger parties - and there is a gardien who maintains security at night and operates the gates to the property. A car is available for use by guests.

The villa is ideally placed for visiting the sights of Marrakech including the exotic Djemaa El Fna square, the Medina’s souks and its historic sites such as the Koutoubia mosque, the Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, Marjorelle Gardens etc as well as for venturing into the mountains for trekking, sight-seeing and skiing.

Journeys, such as to Essaouira for example, can also be arranged if prior notice is given. The rental price quoted on this website cover bed and breakfast for a week. The cost of other food and drink, except on arrival the first evening, which is complementary, is for the client’s account and a gratuity on departure in recognition of the staff’s help would be appreciated. A guide for this would be £8 per person per week.
