Villas in Marrakech
Marrakech, a city where history and culture tangle with gorgeous architecture and vivid colors, a feast for the senses that everyone has to experience at least once in their lifetimes. Medina is indubitably the top spot to rent a villa during your stay in Marrakech. A labyrinth of winding alleys and narrow streets, it is the historic heart of this ancient city. Quiet and safe Chrifia, located south of the center, is a great option for families or anyone looking to rent a villa who wants to be close to all the city has to offer, but to be able to come home to the relative tranquility of suburban Marrakech.Stay in a traditional Moroccan riad property
The villas in Marrakech are simply spectacular and the prices eye watering, but in a good way! You can find many riad properties in and around the town, which are traditional Moroccan houses, with two or more stories around an Andalusian-style courtyard that houses a fountain. Expect a swimming pool set in landscaped gardens among olive trees and bougainvilliers, and in some properties a housemaid who cleans and cooks your Moroccan meals throughout your stay! Smaller groups can choose from one of many villas in the town, many of which have a communal pool.
