Villa Alexandra is one of Marrakesh's most tranquil and stylish country houses - cool classic architecture and beautiful interiors - set in a secluded five acre walled garden full of palm, olive, citrus fruit trees and roses. It was built in the 1920's by a Frenchman and the Mediterranean/Moroccan architecture works very well together. This serene location and the cool pure air from the mountains mixed with the scent of the orange trees make it a wonderful place to relax. Contrary to popular belief, the temperature outside Marrakech is wonderful during Juy and August, as long as you are surrounded by a lush and tropical garden. There is no humidity, so what can be high temperatures (33-38 degrees )in those months, are very bearable. Completely private, the villa includes a 20 metre swimming pool with shady pergola and bar for lunch, clay tennis court and spacious terraces throughout. The villa has 6 permanent staff and they are included in the cost of your stay as are all meals. They have been with us for nearly 16 years and are very discreet but super efficient and they all speak English. Latif, our house manager is a font of information, so if you have never visited Marrakech before, he will be able to tell you where to go, what to see and where to shop! Our Moroccan cook is superb at traditional and European food and many of her ingredients come from the garden, she also makes the best home made ravioil in town! She can cater for most dietary requirements, you only have to ask. The house is 13km south of Marrakech on the road to Ourika and 20mns from the airport.
There is now a large choice in excellent golf courses and the newest, and one of the best to play, is 10 minutes down the road. (Les Jardins des Atlas). In addition to Golf, the complex has a waterskiing complex which is suitable for all ages. We also have an excellent tennis coach who can visit the villa to either make up a four or teach adults and children.
