Marrakech Villa 20900 is a sumptuous riad in the heart of the ancient district of Marrakech.
Bringing together an exquisite blend of traditional Moorish and Oriental architecture with an elegant European romanticism.
An ancient riad that has been lovingly restored as a breathtakingly beautiful private guesthouse.
It is situated in the heart of the old medina in Marrakech, neighbouring the exotic Place des Epices (spice market) and less than five minutes walk from the world-renowned Jemaa el Fna Square.
Originally built as a fortress, the ancient walls are over a meter thick, so all sounds of the bustling medina are shut out as you enter a space of beauty and peace.
There is a wonderful choice of quiet areas around the house for reading, eating, drinking, sunbathing or snoozing.
The courtyard greenery attracts a mass of songbirds until dusk when the jasmine begins to fill the air with its delicate fragrance.
Hours melt away on the terrace high above the city, where you will be basking in the ever-present sunshine on comfortable loungers, talking under a soft shaded seating area, dipping into the plunge pool for refreshment…
When the day closes, hear the resounding call to prayer accompanied by the view of Marrakech’s Koutoubia Mosque set against a back-drop of palm trees and the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, whilst the city lights glow around you…
