                                                friendly village, well equipped house, helpful hosts, beautiful area

                                                4 of 5
                                                We stayed at the house early in the new year, which is a very cold time in the mountains. Between the houses electric heaters and a well supplied fire, loads of bedding and several hours of sunshine a day on the roof, we did ok and were warm enough to enjoy the evenings inside. The hot water was not working brilliantly but the hosting neighbours brought us a big kettle to make water hot on the gas. The olive harvest was in full swing in the village & oil being pressed by mule locally every day. There are many beautiful walks nearby. The one thing I might mention is that the house does not receive much sunshine (maybe a good thing in summer!) & you can hear the road (not a big problem). The house was beautifully clean and the kitchen well equipped. Thank you.

                                                Super villa in staggering location near Marrakech

                                                5 of 5
                                                L’Amandier resort in the Atlas Mountains will, once completed, consist of 12 villas and a boutique hotel. It is scheduled to open as a fully functioning resort later this year, although the swimming pool is usable now. Villa No 7, where I was lucky enough to spend a few days in February, is probably in the best location being at the far end of the complex with a neighbouring villa only on one side. From its rear terrace there are the most staggering views up to the mountains which, when I was there, were snowcapped – a fabulous feature against a blue, blue sky. The villa has three double bedrooms looking on to a pretty central courtyard, each one with its own large bathroom. The very generously proportioned main living area runs the length of the rear of the house, with floor to ceiling glass doors leading on to a west facing terrace with a plunge pool, looking on out to that fabulous view. No better place from which to watch the sunset over the mountains, unless perhaps from the roof terrace above, with its intimate Bedouin-style pergola. Quality modern furnishings, along with a fully fitted kitchen, give Villa No 7 a contemporary feel, with some standout locally sourced pieces to remind us that Morocco is a country rich in traditional craftsmanship as well as glorious landscapes. I can’t wait to go back!
