The next time you want a short break from day to day life, consider a trip to Marrakech; it has that amazing feeling that you’re on the other side of the world and yet flights from London take less than 4 hours. Ideal for a long weekend away in the sunshine. For a home from home in this incredible environment, Villas Taos Retreat is a beautiful, serene villa retreat set in 33 acres of organic olives groves and private fruit gardens with walkways, water features and private pools.
Villas Taos Retreat
There are two beautiful villas in the complex, both are ground floor only and totally private and secluded. They were recently renovated and the result is fabulous – contemporary in design, with subtle Moroccan touches throughout. The landscaped gardens, which offer views across to the Atlas Mountains, are also home to some donkeys and a family of peacocks – totally idyllic. The villas are very conveniently located just a 12 minutes’ drive from the International Ménara Airport of Marrakech and a few minutes from the wonderful Medina.
Pool Villa Retreat
The Pool Villa has 3-bedrooms and a large private pool. The villa also comes with its own housekeeper so you are very well looked after. The décor is ultra-luxurious, with a calming colour palate – lots of on-trend greys, designer furniture, and original works of art which include some very striking bronze sculptures. The property consists of three bedroom suites, bathrooms, a kitchen and a living and dining room. Outside, there are beautiful gardens with views across to the Atlas Mountains and the terraces house private pergolas with views across the pool and gardens. Amenities include free high speed internet and Wi-Fi, table tennis table, laundry facilities and a DVD player. Free resident parking is provided and there is a 24-hour guarded gate.
The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering and there is a large supermarket on your journey to the city centre which is very convenient for supplies. Breakfast can be provided at an additional charge of 8 euro per person. For nights when you want the comfort of staying in rather than eating out, but are a little too tired from exploring Marrakech to cook yourself, a private chef can be arranged to cook some delicious, native Moroccan dishes.
Pool & Activities
To relax and recuperate after walking the streets of Marrakech, the private pool is very inviting. You can also request additional services such as massages and hairdressing and for some added comfort during your exploring; the owners will also arrange a private driver. Make the most of the sights, sounds and smells of Marrakech – get off the beaten track a little and really lose yourself in the maze of alleys and streets in the souk marketplaces. Other top sights to visit include the Moorish minaret of 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque, Ben Youssef Mosque – a Quranic school and the Musée de Marrakech.
The next time you want to get away from daily life, why not stay a while at the Pool Villa Retreat at Villas Taos and make this Marrakech hideaway your own while you explore the wonders of the fabulous city of Marrakech.
