About Sara Watson
We have been going on holiday to Morocco for the last eight years and immediately fell in love with the country . From the moment you get off the plane you are transported to a different world, the sounds, the smells, the light, the people simply lift the spirit. We wanted to find a property of our own that could provide a beautiful oasis of calm and tranquility but yet be close enough to the vibrant city of Marrakech which we have come to consider our second home. Having three children of our own we know that a self catering holiday can sometimes be a busman's holiday so we wanted to offer a service where all your catering needs are taken care of.
Sara Watson purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Sara Watson chose Sidi Abdellah Ghiat
El Goute is ideal for a family holiday or a place to be enjoyed with friends. Whether you want to use the house as a base for exploring Marrakech and the surrounding areas, or simply relax by the pool and enjoy the magnificent views of the mountains we will do our utmost to ensure you have a 5 star experience. If you want to play golf there are two excellent courses nearby. The villa can easily accomodate 8 adults and 2 children in total privacy. We can accept smaller parties at a reduced rate as well as for a shorter period. (3 day minimum)
What makes this Villa unique
You never tire of the majestic view of the Atlas mountains at El Goute. Sitting on the terrace you are transported to another world which is the perfect antidote for escaping our frenetic life.

Our little slice of paradise
Words can not explain (and pictures can not do justice to) just how beautiful this villa is. I booked El Goute for myself and 9 friends to celebrate my 40th birthday and everything about it exceeded our expectations. Liaising with Sara beforehand should have given me more of a clue as to how wonderful this experience would be as she was so, so helpful about everything! Endless questions about the catering, where to go in Marrakech, how to organise ourselves etc - all patiently and promptly answered. And then we actually arrived and WOW is this place amazing. The grounds and the villa are stunning. The staff are great - fabulous food and nothign was too much trouble for AB to sort. Don't be put off by the distance from Marrakech centre. Yes it is a little way out but we loved coming back to the tranquility and view of the Atlas mountains after our hectic day in the medina. So book it now - I promise you that you won't regret it.
Thank you Sara - we will be back!
Incredible family holiday
We visited El Goute in October half term 2018, and can not recommend it more highly.
From the very first contact we had with Sara (the owner), nothing was too much trouble. Our party included 3 families with 10 children, and we were beautifully looked after.
El Goute is a magical place, with so much to do for adults and children alike. We had a fully catered stay, with everything from Tagines to chicken nuggets - all we had to do was ask!
Our host AB, who looks after guests during their stay, also organised a traditional BBQ one night, complete with belly dancers and drummers, which was a fantastic memory for all.
We relaxed at the villa taking advantage of all it has to offer - large swimming pool, volleyball court, tennis court, boules area, haman, and epic views of the mountains.
In addition, Marrakesh was only a half hour minibus away, and was a chance for the children to experience a different culture under an expert guide - again organised by AB.
In short, El Goute ticks all boxes - luxury accommodation in this beautiful country, welcoming adults and children alike.
We had a relaxing, interesting, fun filled time, and I cannot recommend it more highly. It is a fantastic ‘villa holiday’ for those wishing to stay put and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, but for those looking for adventure, it is easily found on your doorstep and you will not be disappointed.
Thank you to the whole El Goute team, we will be back!
Outstanding Venue, Beautiful Oasis not to be miss
Don't miss out on this one! (if I could give this 6 stars I would)
We booked this villa to run out yearly Yoga and fitness retreats @morocyogafit to see our pictures of the villa grounds food and rooms, you won't be disappointed. From the outset transfers all arrange, meal suggestions prior to arrival, some of the best food we have tried in Morrocco prepared by the catering team.
The rooms are authentic, Spa & Hammam are excellent, we booked the local massages and scrubs every day all arranged by AB the villa manager, who provides an excellent service.
The villa grounds are immense with lots of room to use for sports and relaxation. We will be using this location for further retreats.
we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Fantastic stay in the lap of casual luxury
Me and 4 other gals had a brilliant 4 day stay at El Goute. AB couldn't have been more helpful and the staff were all fantastic. Trips into the Medina, a massage and scrub in the hamman, delicious food, swimming, tennis, table tennis...we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you everyone at El Goute. We'll come again!
