Laid out on over 25 acres of oasis-like gardens, this sprawling luxury villa just outside of Marrakesh deftly illustrates the cultural intersection of European and North African style along with the whimsical and magical works of French artist Jean-Francois Fourtou.
The property was designed in an unusual combination of luxury and serenity with a deeply rooted tradition of hospitality, ensuring an atmosphere of harmony and relaxation.
The spacious interiors are stylishly composed of contemporary and classic Moroccan furnishings and art that highlight the romantic old world beauty of Morocco with chic understated elegance.
The nine independent suites are individually themed and decorated and are distributed around the mimosa courtyard with room for up to twenty guests. The property includes a library and home cinema, spa facilities with hammam, fitness room, tennis courts and a boules court.
The private chef and staff serve a delicious menu of classic Moroccan and international cuisine with locally sourced ingredients and fresh produce from the on site organic gardens. Guests can enjoy an enchanted dinner under the Tree of 1000 candles, in the sumptuous Caidale Tent, or under the stars on the roof terrace.
The extensive property features cozy alcoves, lounging areas, courtyards and patios tucked away among the gardens along with the large swimming pool surrounded by olive trees and promenades that invite you to stroll or lounge within view of the majestic Atlas Mountains.

Just a few miles northeast of central Marrakesh, the famed Medina is a short drive into the vibrant heart of the souks, markets and cafes. The nearby Atlas Mountains and Ourika Valley are ideal for day trips and the three hour drive to the Atlantic coast is worth the trip for the Unesco World Heritage Site of El Jadida, a fortified former Portuguese colony that features both western and eastern influence. The laid back beach town of Essaouira with sandy-colored ramparts, whitewashed avenues, French-style piazzas and fishing port are just south of the iconic city of Casablanca.
