Our friends had recommended the Villa Querido, and this is the third time we spend a some hollyday in Marrakech ! I used to book a Ryad in the Medina of Marrakech, but it's not really relaxing. (Those who know the souk of Marrakech will understand me ...). Villa Querido, a Gem situatedted near the village of Tamesloth at about 10 miles from of Marrakech Airport. We were friendly welcomed by the owner of the villa, Myriam, and we discovered a green oasis, a superb garden and a sumptuous view on the Atlas Mountain. My most relaxing vacation for years. The staff is helpful and smiling, I recommend the half-board, the cook is unbeatable, Moroccan specialties, Senegalese or European, she can cook everything! Myriam knows Morocco for more than 15 years and can advise you on the most beautiful walks and the most interesting trips to take. On demand can organize any activity . What more can be said ? Be prepared for the most relaxing hollyday you ever had !
From the moment we were picked up, we could not have selected a more perfect place.
We stayed full board, which I would suggest anyone looking to stay does. The food was beyond amazing and the staff catered to our schedule perfectly, even offering to serve meals earlier for the children and later for the adults.
The villa itself is exceptional, massive rooms with loads of breakout spaces so even a large party of guests won't feel cramped in.
The Pool was great too, with a large raised area that was great for the small ones to paddle in.
The staff were simply incredible, arranging everything we needed and even accompanying us on a trip to the local market.
The compound its self is remote, with a beautiful view from all of the windows and terraces of the Atlas mountains. It was so quiet at the villa, a welcome change of pace from the busyness of the markets, that sitting out at night watching the stars became an almost nightly occurrence.
We couldn't recommend this villa enough. and can't wait to come back in the future!
Our stay at Villa Querido was absolutely stunning and the experience was totally perfect!
The Villa its self-gets a 20 out of 10. The layout was brilliant, it has so many different and private spaces that allows each guest to enjoy their own space with privacy. Yet there are also amazing both inside and outside spaces that you can enjoy as a group. The art, decoration and furnishings are extremely clever and are all tied In beautifully. The attention to detail in this Vila is second to none. It truly belongs in a fancy interior design magazine. The villa has everything that you need.
As soon as you enter through the gates to the villa you arrive to a tranquil and carefully thought out grounds. The outdoor space is just stunning. The garden is so beautiful with again amazing attention to detail regarding the variety of plants and shrubs and trees. The entire compound is impeccably looked after and provides such lovely spaces for the guests to relax and enjoy the weather In. I only wish we had stayed longer than our 4 nights so that we could have enjoyed the Villa more.
The photographs truly don't do justice to the villa!
The location is a short and easy drive away from Marrakech town. We drove Into town each night to enjoy the amazing restaurants that are on offer.
The team at the Villa really took the experience to a whole new level. It was like staying in a Five Star hotel but with the benefits and privacy of having your own house all to yourself. The cook made a lovely, fresh traditional Moroccan breakfast every morning at our requested time which was complimentary and included in the price of the rental. She also prepared a wonderful dinner and lunch for us during our stay for a reasonable per person charge. The villa was immaculately clean upon our arrival and was made to same standard every day that we returned home. The cleaner does a full clean daily making the villa a treat to return to after a long day out. Abdul the House Manager was amazing looking after us and ensuring that our entire stay was a wonderful experience. He helped arrange the daily pick ups at the villa with the tour operators. Also at one point, we had some car problems with our rental car and he was able to fix the problem. On one morning we came outside to find the rental car had been washed and the three of the house team were all drying the windows. The house team were available to assist us when we needed but we still had complete privacy throughout the entire villa.
Myriam was an extremely attentive host. She has a vast knowledge of local restaurants, Spa's and activities and was available to arrange almost anything that you might require during your stay. She wants to make sure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible.
I highly recommend the villa for your next trip to Marrakech. I am already planning a return trip in August for a week.
Very nice apartment with a number of nice seating areas within the large spacious garden. The hospitality provided by chef (Halima) and host (Abdur Raheem) was excellent. Very helpful staff who really looked after us during our 3 night stay, the local dishes prepared by the staff were delicious, barbecue preparations, setting of log fires etc. There are a number of activities that can be booked nearby such as the quad biking which I highly recommend. The 30 mins quad biking tour on dirt tracks covering the local scenery was very enjoyable.
The pool is also of a good size however, the weather was too cold and so we couldn't make much use of the pool. The rooms are also of good size with en-suite facilities. The apartment is clean and very nicely decorated and maintained.
Overall, our stay was brilliant, it is roughly 20-30 mins from the centre of Marrakesh and so a hired car would be advisable.
I was wanting to book this villa in September but due to circumstances, wasn't able to complete the booking.
Just wanted to say the owner Myriam was very professional during our discussions. Thoughtful too...she recommended full board, just incase the children get hungry whilst playing in the pool.
Not many villas in morocco offer full board with everything included. Not many villas have the villa owner actually there during your stay to give you that extra personol service.
Hoping to stay there in
April with my family.
Look forward to seeing you and your team, Myriam.
