The villa is the perfect retreat to relax in, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet it is still located in the heart of the Medina. At its heart is a peaceful open-air courtyard with a town garden of orange trees, potted plants, fragrant herbs and comfortable seating. Dining by candlelight alfresco or by the fire in the cosy winter salon is the perfect antidote to a busy day. Houdra, your charming maid will prepare delicious Moroccan meals for you (on request).
