About sally laing

I live in Cheshire with my husband who is an orthopaedic surgeon, we have 2 children at university . We have always enjoyed travelling as a family and have been all over the world but now spend most of our leisure time at our villa Dar Tamazerte, we often take friends with us and do a bit of travelling within the country usually hiring a car and driving to our destination, the roads once out of the cities are quiet and generally of a good condition, the people we meet on our way are always friendly and keen to show us around. We have stayed in some lovely Riad's ( much nicer than the chain hotels) and eaten some truly memorable meals.

sally laing purchased this villa in 2007

Why sally laing chose Mechouar Kasba

Having had many holidays in the last 10 years in Morocco, i love the people the excotic nature of the country and the ease of getting there , about 3.5 hours flying time from the UK. I came across a ' For Sale' sign on the side of the road in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and thought what a wonderful place to have a house that was 6 years ago and i now own with Liz Dunley this wonderful house! It is near enough Marrakech for visiting souks/restaurants etc but away from all the noise and heat it is a real oasis and i am sure you will love it as much as we do

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is in a superb position in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains . One of the greatest pleasures is to eat breakfast on the roof terrace looking out onto the mountains and especially in spring when they are snow capped and the air is clear it is stunning. For the warmer months we have a lovely eating area in the garden covered by an arbour with climbing plants affording some shade or at night it is lit up.

There is a lovely little alcove by the swimming pool for the post lunch nap or the hammock in the garden is always a favourite.. if you are lucky you may spy our resident tortoise.

We are very fortunate to have a superb gardener, a house keeper Saoud) who looks after us so well ,bringing drinks out to the pool , serving our meals and generally tidying up after us. The cook supplies us with an ever expanding menu and waistline!

It is a truly relaxing place in fact many of our guests do not venture out at all, but for those that wish to we have a house manager ( Mustapha) who will pick you up at the airport take you to the villa and be on hand for any advice regarding excursions and restaurants you may wish to try.

Bon Voyage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most wonderful holiday and it will go down as one of those memorable ones which we’ll reminisce about in the future. Thank you so much for making your villa available for holidays, it’s a really special place in a fabulous location, far from the madding crowd but not totally isolated. Although I have already written in your guest book, I wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of myself and my family. We felt very much at home at Dar Tamazerte, and the genuine welcome of your staff made a huge difference to the enjoyment of our stay, it’s the first time we have stayed in a staffed villa and prior to the holiday we were a little concerned about this aspect, but they were courteous,full of smiles and very respectful of our privacy

Surpassed all expectations. Set in beautiful tranquil gardens. Clean & comfortable luxury accommodation with friendly staff providing exceptional food.

comfort and luxury

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Dar Tamazerte in the dark and lanterns lite our way past citrus and olive trees to the front door, the villa interior was a delight, with Moroccan crafted doors, alcoves and intricate plaster work and art , mixed with contemporary and comfortable furnishings .

In the morning Our lovely housekeeper Souad served us breakfast on the upstairs terrace with views onto the Atlas Mountains, and the perfect week continued from there, swimming in the pool, playing Boule and tennis, and eating Fatimas delicious food either in the beautiful gardens, or the impressively vaulted ceiling dinning room.

From the Villa we visited the mountains and Marrakech, and the scenery and friendliness of the locals were a delight.

I feel thoroughly spoiled and rested after my week, a big Thank you to Sally and her staff

"Wow" a hidden gem in a fantastic setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely villa with family for a week and had a fantastic time. The three bedrooms are all beautifully decorated with different themes, each with individual A/C. The grounds are a burst of beautiful gardens creating a serene and relaxing environment with lots of outdoor seating areas throughout the garden. My favourite areas were the terrace with the lovely sofas next to the dining room with the delightful pergola covered in bougainvillea and jasmine and the upper terrace with the large sofa which afforded a view of the mountains. The private swimming pool was large with easy access steps into the water and I loved the lying out beds next to the pool which were extremely comfortable. The food was good value and very varied, I particularly enjoyed the tangines and slow cooked lamb. We took various trips out; a day in the Souk combined with visiting the Jardin Majorelle were we wandered amongst exotic plants and water paths, a short walk in the Atlas mountains to a Berber Village alongside a visit to Richard Branson's Kasbah Tamadot. The golf courses were exceptionally well maintained and we managed to get a few rounds in during our week. Highly recommended family holiday destination..big thumbs up!

The property was very luxurious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property was very luxurious, beautiful and finished to a very high standard. There were a lot of personal touches that made all the difference to indicate that the owners really cared about the enjoyment and comfort of their guests.

The thing I liked most was that there were so many places to relax (and hide if necessary!) so if you came with a large crowd, you could very easily find many interesting secluded areas in the garden where you could find just relax quietly and enjoy the peace.

The staff were charming and amenable and did everything to ensure that we were comfortable.

The opportunity of dining-in was such a welcome option! It's unusual to find a fully catered villa offering this. We found it a real bonus as it means everyone (especially the women!) can have a true break with not even having to enter the kitchen!

All in all, a wonderfully relaxing stay and I would definitely book this villa again and highly recommend it to any of my friends.

Luxury villa in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Dar Tamazerte is a beautiful luxury villa in a super location with easy access to both Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains. The villa is superbly furnished and offers all the little extras that make for a relaxing and very comfortable stay. The villa was spotless and spacious, wifi worked fine and hot water was plentiful. Set in superb well maintained gardens filled with birdlife and with a fabulous private pool the villa provides the perfect environment to unwind and take in the views across to the Atlas Mountains. The staff were very friendly and fun and keen to help with everything from serving iced mint tea to searching out tortoises in the garden. The local driver was also excellent. The meals were delicious, well planned and carefully presented. An excellent place to stay.
