Morocco Marrakech villa with heated pool - Dar Attout is a superb luxury residence set in five acres of olive groves and orchards in the foothills of the Atlas mountains. Beautifully furnished to a very high standard, with comfort in mind, this property retains an ambience of peace and tranquillity which is enhanced by the stunning views over the lush Ourika valley to the Atlas mountains, which make a fabulous backdrop.
Fascinating Marrakech is just a short drive away. This is Morocco's second-largest city, an exclusive cultural destination. Often referred to as "the Red City" for the red ochre walls that surround it, the palaces, fountains and mosques all reflect its thousand-year history. Visit the famous Jemaa-el-Fna square and market place in the medina (old city) and allow your senses to be pleasantly assailed by the riot of exotic colours and sounds - intoxicating and unforgettable!
Most importantly, a holiday at Dar Attout will be a holiday for every member of your group. No-one will have to worry about cleaning or laundry at all, nor about shopping (unless you want to), cooking or clearing up afterwards: the owners' staff remain in residence for the benefit of guests. The cook will produce any menu you request, often using fresh produce straight from the gardens (where chickens wander freely). This is an organic paradise!
As this Morocco Marrakech villa with heated pool sits on a hillside at the end of a track just over a mile long, a 4x4 vehicle is recommended, unless you prefer to hire a car and driver for day trips. The staff will be happy to help you with this. You can enjoy walks to the Berber villages or hike into the mountains if you prefer more adventure. There is also a newly built hotel within walking distance with an international standard spa. There is so much to enjoy in this wonderful area: why not take the opportunity to visit now, before everyone discovers it!
