Dar Moulouya is situated in the Ourika Valley, which spreads between the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and the city. Despite being so close to Marrakech, this beautiful green valley is definitely one of the best preserved in Morocco.
With fabulous open spaces, a fantastic pool and beautifully designed rooms, Dar Moulouya is the complete home from home, luxurious get-a-way.
The entrance to the house is through a glorious Andalucian style courtyard filled with vibrant orange and lemon trees and a cooling fountain. This immaculate and wonderful house was built in 2004 in a traditional style and named after Morocco's most beautiful river.
Dar Moulouya is only 20 minutes from the bustling Medina of Marrakech but is utterly peaceful. Its large garden is spectacularly planted with a thousand roses, bougainvillea, olive, pomegranate and banana trees. It is also home to Leila and Charlie, the tortoise couple, who boss around the exotic birds and butterflies, drawn to this much-loved garden.
The stunning, colourful bedrooms are either on the ground floor of the villa or in the Pavilion, which is a few steps away in the garden. All bedrooms are ensuite and have air-conditioning. The Pavilion is ideal either for guests or teenagers who want their own space.
There is generous living space with a large drawing room, a dining room and a TV room, in addition to several terraces overlooking the garden.
At the top of the floodlit staircase in the entrance hall, the pierced oblong dome is extremely impressive. The hall opens onto the upper terrace with Moroccan style seating and a shady pergola. This overlooks the extensive gardens and stunning views of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and is a perfect spot for aperitifs.
THE GOOD LIFE
Do as much or as little as you like: R&R is highly encouraged at Dar Moulouya. Rise early and practice your morning fitness rituals on the enormous lawn, with nothing to disturb but soft birdsong.
