Villa Ezztounya, set in the Palmeraie, an exclusive district of Marrakesh in Morrocco, is located in an olive tree-dotted estate comprising 3 separate villas. Here, the grounds of 20,000 metres square are beautifully designed with fragrant date and orange trees, bourganvillea and lavender. The location is private and peaceful and Villa Ezztounya can not be seen from the other villas. Sleeping 6 people, this villa can either be rented individually or in conjunction with the other villas.
With arrival from Menara International airport, which is only 12 kilometres away, you will arrive after this short transfer ready to enjoy all that the Villa Ezztounya has to offer.
With unlimited beauty treatments supplied by two full-time beauty therapists in the hammam or treatment rooms at the villa, you will have a choice including massages, manicures and pedicures for men and women, that will leave you feeling in great shape.
The decor of the Villa Ezztounya, combines the best of Moroccan architecture and British interior design. The layout of the Villa, with its three bedrooms, allows guest to spend private time in the large bedrooms which are all en suite and have large terraces and open fires. Additionally, two of the bedrooms have separate plunge pools and, as with the rest of the house, these are beautifully lit at night, changing the atmosphere and creating a very exotic mood as night falls.
For more of Moroccan life, a visit to Marrakesh which is only 15 minutes away is an easy trip. The villa chauffeur will take you on a 3-4 hour guided tour of the souks and the Medina on a day of your choice or take you further afield to the Atlas Mountains or to the Ourika valley where traditional life for the Berber people remains largely unchanged. With ten years’ of experience in the job, the villa manager will co-ordinate any of these trips for you seamlessly.
After a day persuing private interests, even if merely spent around the 12.8 metre pool, strolling in the grounds, or enjoying a treatment, the sociable spaces will welcome you back together again with a choice of backdrops - a sunken Berber tent outside, where you can sit and drink your aperitifs, will give you the authentic feel of the Moroccan countryside or inside, the spectacular domed sitting and dining area lit with bauble lights, is a visual treat and reminder of the beauty of authentic Moroccan style. If the Moroccan style of cuisine is your favourite you will be in raptures, as the private chef dishes up a locally sourced and daily changed Moroccan menu, but if you would prefer European style cuisine this will be produced to the same irresistible standard. Not forgetting any children who might be with you, who will be treated with the same care and consideration for their individual tastes.
Villa Ezztounya represents a rare opportunity to be able to rent a smaller villa in the Palmeraie where larger size villas are more usual. This pretty and well-staffed villa will have you feeling all the benefits of a really revitalising holiday in this wonderfully undisturbed area so close to the buzz of the vibrant city.
