Location: Morocco

For a relaxing break-away to a far-away land, a trip to Marrakech is your perfect destination and hiding out in a beautiful villa is the ideal place to recharge your batteries. Marrakech has that wonderful vibe where you could be on the other side of the world; the sights, sounds and smells are totally bewitching and it’s a great place to get away from your day to day life as it all just seems a million miles away. Villas Taos Retreat is a stunning villa retreat set in 33 acres of organic olives groves and private fruit gardens with walkways, water features and private pools, the atmosphere is serene and peaceful, the ideal location for your Marrakech hideaway. Marrakech can be reached easily from London with several airlines flying the route and flight times taking less than 4 hours.

Villas Taos Retreat
The retreat consists of two gorgeous, ground-floor only villas; contemporary in design with subtle Moroccan touches, and both totally private and secluded. They are excellently situated just a 12 minutes’ drive from the International Ménara Airport of Marrakech and a few minutes from the wonderful Medina. The villas were recently renovated and the care taken was evident, both are simply stunning. The beautifully landscaped gardens, which offer views across to the Atlas Mountains, are also home to some donkeys and a family of peacocks – idyllic.

Grand Villa Deluxe
The 4-bedroom Grand Villa Deluxe is a total delight; huge at some 850sqm, it also includes a private pool and tennis court. The villa also comes with its own housekeeper so you are very well looked after. The décor is modern, sleek and stylish, with designer furniture, clever flashes of colour and original works of art which include some very striking bronze sculptures. The property consists of four spacious bedroom suites, bathrooms, a kitchen, two large living and dining rooms, a bar area, massage suite, a terrace and beautiful private gardens. There is plenty to keep you entertained, as well as the pool and tennis court, there is a library, complimentary high speed internet and Wi-Fi, DVD player and a table tennis table. 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
The private pool is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries after a busy day exploring Marrakech. Alongside the pool there is also a water basin splash pool for kids. The owners are happy to arrange additional services such as massages and hairdressing, and for some added comfort during your exploring; a private driver can be arranged. As for that exploring; for a cultural crash-course in Marrakech, I recommend an afternoon in the winding labyrinth of the souk markets; choose something colourful to take home, barter with passion, and get well and truly lost! 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.

For a tranquil home to make your own whilst being slowly captivated by the wonders of Marrakech, the Grand Villa Deluxe at Villas Taos Retreat combines the flexibility to come and please as you wish, with the comfort and style of a five-star hotel.
