This luxury villa sits just outside of Marrakech, in the Ourika Valley, where the Atlas Mountains provide a breath-taking backdrop. A family-friendly property, it has seven bedrooms, a private swimming pool and tennis court, and comes fully serviced with a house manager, cook and daily housekeeping.
When you arrive at Marrakech Menara Airport, you’ll be greeted by the house manager and driven to Villa Tamara, just 20 minutes away. This villa is the ideal location from which to explore Morocco’s diverse landscapes. Choose from the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, to the Sahara Desert beyond, or the relaxed beach town of Essaouira, a three-hour drive away. It’s also conveniently close to Marrakech – just 13 kilometres from the medina, or old city, with its bustling souqs, vibrant main square and superb restaurants. For an active holiday, there are several golf courses near the villa, water-skiing on the reservoir at Lalla Takerkous is less than 30 minutes away, and the ski resort of Oukaimeden can be reached in 90 minutes.
After a day out exploring city or countryside, you’ll love returning to the complete privacy of Villa Tamara. The property comprises the main house, pavilion and pool house, sitting within a mature five-acre walled garden full of fragrant orange trees and rose bushes. The interiors are a colourful and eclectic mix of influences, blending traditional Moroccan features with Egyptian wall hangings and mother-of-pearl inlaid Syrian mirrors. The main house has a choice of spaces for entertaining and relaxing; a dining room seating up to 12, a drawing room leading onto a large terrace, a second terrace on the roof, plus a library and TV room. There are four en suite bedrooms in the main house, two bedrooms and a bathroom in the pavilion, and a twin bedroom with a shower room in the pool house – accommodating 12 guests in total. Within the landscaped grounds there’s a 20m swimming pool, clay tennis court and vegetable garden.
Your private cook will incorporate herbs and vegetables from the garden into the meals that are provided every day your holiday. The rental includes breakfast, lunch (a two-course meal or picnic), tea with homemade biscuits and a three-course dinner. There’s a daily housekeeping and turndown service, and everything is overseen by the house manager. Villa Tamara is designed to feel like a private hotel and the team are on hand to make sure you’re completely pampered.
This luxury retreat is a place where all the family will experience the very best of Moroccan hospitality. Within the walled gardens, there are all the facilities needed for a relaxing day at the villa, and when you’re ready to join the throng in Marrakech, it’s just a short drive away.
