About Anne Joubert
We are in Morocco since 2003 and founded a family-run publishing company. We release guides, books, maps and postcards. Since we are very familiar with the region, we are happy to share good addresses and our favourite places. We love nature, hiking, reading, listening to music, photography and authentic landmarks.
Anne Joubert purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Anne Joubert chose Marrakech
We chose this place for its quietness and greenery: a quiet olive grove in the middle of fields. Inspired by the Berber tradition we built our house with adobe so that coolness in summer and warmth in winter are guaranteed. In addition, there are a terrace in the sun, Mashrabiya windows and an arbour made of cane. Modern comfort is guaranteed. The house is perfectly equipped and the windows open onto nature to benefit at its best.
What makes this Villa unique
Absolutely peaceful, the garden is a true oasis and an ideal place to relax far from the crowd. With its abundance of space, both indoor and outdoor, the house is very pleasant to live in for families: small and large living rooms, terrace in the shade or in the sun. Whether Berber, African or Arab-Andalusia, the simple but cosy decoration was inspired of the influences that embossed the Moroccan culture.

Beautiful property, perfect for families with kids. Very conveniently located. Highly recommended
Hello Boris, Thank you for your nice comment, as you noticed, the house is quite close to the medina although it is located in the great silence of the countryside. We are happy that your kids and yourself have enjoyed your stay and especially the friendly contact with our nice dogs. We are still improving the house and the garden, so welcome again with new surprises around!
The photos don't do justice to how beautiful and spacious this riad is - we stayed as a group of eight friends and had the most wonderful time. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, there's lots of communal space both inside and out, and even a fireplace for cold evenings.
Anne-Joubert responded to all our questions beforehand while Jean Denis met us to show us round and make sure we had everything we needed. The food, cooked by Mohammed's wife, was exceptional, a real treat.
We will definitely return next year.
Hello Shady, Thank you for your comments. We have organized to have more new photos but already you can have a look at our insta ourhousemarrakech filled with daily photos. Please come again, it was a pleasure having you and your friends in the house during the electro festival at the nearby Fellah Hotel.
A wonderful experience!
Situated midway between Marrakesh and the Ourika Valley the house sits within large, private grounds in a very quiet area with only the calls to prayer breaking the silence. We spent a truly wonderful week here and as the days went by appreciated more and more it's simplicity of build and style. With temperatures reaching 47 degrees the ample tree cover in the garden and the air con in the bedrooms was welcomed. The pool, a fabulous 20x4 metres, was fully utilised throughout.
Our hosts, Anne-Clare and Jean Denis, were always on hand to give us advice and help and the wonderful caretaker, Mohammed, magically appeared with the produce of his garden or his Berber dishes.
A great holiday and a great experience
Dear M. Colin, Thank you for your kind comment. Since you have stayed with your family, we have added new photos here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dRuez9Up_0&feature=youtu.be
So you can go on with the Marrakesh dream! You were lucky enough to enjoy the one week per year when the temperature reaches 47°! Of course summer is hot in Marrakesh, usually around 35°/42°, a good temperature to enjoy a wonderful time in the pool and the garden shade.
Together with Mohamed + his fabulous wife cooking the Moroccan food, we have decided to add new recipes to the “menu” that will be available on request from now. It will include 3 kind of couscous, 4 kind of tagines + bread and 5 kind of Moroccan flavoured tea. Even if the town of Marrakesh (15 mn drive) and the shopping center (10 mn drive) are not far away, it’s a treat to enjoy fresh Moroccan food by the pool surrounding by trees and nature.
It was very a great pleasure to welcome you and your family, welcome again!
Un séjour parfait dans cette villa. La piscine et le jardin sont incroyables!
Bonjour Florine, Merci pour votre gentille appréciation. Je me souviens bien de votre arrivée avec vos 7 amies pour ce week-end d’enterrement de vie de jeune fille : A peine descendues du taxi, vous vous êtes exclamées « ouah » c’est magnifique en regardant uniquement la façade de la maison. Et je vous ai dit, « attendez-vous n’avez rien vu ! » Effectivement, tout ici est incroyable, la piscine bien sûr mais aussi ce jardin verdoyant et ombragé avec oliviers, grenadiers, figuiers, citronniers et orangers et surtout cette maison récente mais qui parait ancienne tant les boiseries, meubles et portes sculptées ont été chiné avec goût au fil du temps. Je suis ravie que vous ayez passé un séjour selon vos attentes et apprécié les petits plats marocains préparés pour vous ainsi que la disponibilité et la gentillesse du chauffeur qui vous a emmenées toutes les 8 partout à toute heure du jour et de la nuit ! C’est avec plaisir que je vous accueillerai de nouveau pour de prochains séjours et que je vous conseillerai des adresses de boutiques de déco, des spas ou des programmes d’excursions.
Séjour idyllique dans une villa de grand confort
Nous avons passé quatre jours merveilleux dans cette villa. Confort (cuisine toute équipée, piscine où l'on peut nager, chambres spacieuses, vaste jardin), situation (à 20min en voiture de Marrakech), tout était parfait. La possibilité de commander à manger (il faut tester le tajine aux olives et citrons confits de la femme de Mohamed, le gardien) est un vrai plus. Bref, une maison idéale pour qui souhaite passer plusieurs jours au calme, dans un décor typique et agréable, entouré d'oliviers. Sans oublier la gentillesse et la disponibilité de Jean-Denis et Anne-Claire, les propriétaires, qui ont tout fait pour rendre notre séjour facile et reposant. Nous y retournerons sans hésiter!
Merci pour ce commentaire très positif ! J’espère que votre épouse et vous-même êtes maintenant d’heureux parents comme vous me l’aviez annoncé ! Effectivement, nous nous attachons à organiser un séjour parfait à nos visiteurs et nous sommes ravis que cela ait été le cas pour vous ! Concernant les tagines préparés pour vous, nous avons ajouté au menu de nouvelles recettes, y compris des salades marocaines variées : tchatchouka, courgettes au citron, tomates sucrées, carottes à l’orange, etc. De quoi faire une bonne sieste sous les oliviers après un plongeon digestif ! Soyez les bienvenus !
Beautiful house and pool
This house is absolutely gorgeous, as seen in the photos. My friends and I enjoyed dining outside both by the pool and in the shady area by the kitchen. The housekeeper brought us dinner cooked by his wife and it was delicious! We had 5 adults staying in the house and there was plenty of space. It was very easy to get to and from Marrakech and even a tour of the mountains with our driver Kabir! Kabir was so accommodating, and we were able to plan our rides with him the day before and then text him if we were running late. Great hosts as well, who are very responsive. It was definitely one of my most memorable vacations. I’d love to return one day with my family. Thanks again!
Thank you for your kind comment about your stay in the house. We are delighted that you enjoyed everything! Indeed the house is very easy to access and Mr. Kabir, the taxi driver we advise is very reliable even at late hours. For the meals taken on the spot, we will enrich the proposed menu, so that you can taste other Moroccan specialties during your next stay. Welcome with your family and friends. Receive our best memory!
Just a few metres away from PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika, an 18-holes course. The house is also close to an aqua park. Those who love sightseeing or shopping can reach the centre of Marrakesh within 20 min. There are numerous possibilities to take a drive or a walk in the region and the ski resort within approximately a one-hour drive.
