About Chris Roupell

Chris & Bridget Roupell live between West Berkshire , London and Cornwall with two dogs and five children.

Chris Roupell purchased this villa in 2010

Why Chris Roupell chose Marrakech & High Atlas Mountains

A well mentained and managed villa, quietly located in family friendly and car free development with a luxury Spa Hotel, clay tennis courts and pitch and put golf, quietly located outside Marrakech with easy access via the Route de Fes within 20/30 minutes.

With over 300 days of Sun and daily flights from the UK & Europe, for as little as £50 at times and only a 2 and a half hour flight Marrakech it is a perfect destination for warmth and Sun throughout the year, even just for weekends.

What makes this villa unique

Sitting quietly on the large roof terrace, with a drink, watching the Sun going down and the Snow capped Atlas Mountains at any time of the year, only a few hours from London and at times for less than £100 for a return flight, makes Apple Gardens a fantastic destination for a huge cultural and climatic change from the UK.

Guestbook comments from the owner

...The staff were charming, the house all worked extremely well and was very comfortable and we hope to go back again soon. Just to let you know I highly recommend the Tagines cooked by the local shop, £7 for 2 Tagines fed all six of us and they were delicious, worth trying when you are next there. We will be in touch again soon. Best wishes Stephen

We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time! The villa is large and airy and beautifully furnished. The pool was gorgeous to cool off in!

Chris and his on-site manager were incredibly helpful and efficient.

The villa is perfectly situated for evening trips into the city too.

We will definitely be returning.

Peaceful haven near Marrakech

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 5 nights with our family of 6 in early August after a break in Essaouria. We had a lovely time. The villa is a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, housed in a safe gated complex. Our children loved playing and relaxing in the pool. We made a few trips to the Medina (taxi fare is 400 Dhs for a round trip) and a day trip to the Atlas mountains (taxi fare 1200 Dhs). The latter is highly recommended - it consisted of a visit to the home of a berber family, traditional moroccan lunch beside a river stream and a guided trek up to the siti Fatimah Waterfall and stopovers to local souvenir stores dotted along the mountain valley. Lunch and guided trek are not included in the taxi fare.

We made a few trips to the local supermarket (Atacadou) en route to/from Marrakech. It is around 9-10km from the villa. There are no other stores local to the villa.

The temperature in August is very hot (38-40 centigrade) and so timing any activities during the day is key - early morning or late afternoon / evening is best. The villa is fully air-conditioned and a welcome relief from a day out in the sun.

Sofiane and his team were quick to respond whenever we had any issues and were only a phone call away.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would love to come again. It is an ideal retreat if you are not planning frequent visits to the centre of Marrakech (budget for taxi fares if you are).

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 10 days in Apple Gardens and had a really lovely time. The staff around the complex were incredibly friendly and the villa is decorated in a lovely Moroccan style - a very comfortable stay! A very peaceful and safe environment to be in and I particularly like the fact that it is a 20 minute drive outside the busy Marrakech life making it incredibly relaxed and tranquil, but not too far to pay frequent visits. This was my second trip here and I loved it - I can't wait to go back! The food at the hotel is delicious, as well as a spa where the treatment is first-class!

Sunny luxury with mountain views

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful escape from the noise and hubbub of Marrakesh- but close enough for a shopping trip or evening out. Spent 3 lovely relaxing days here playing tennis and chilling by the pool- the mountain views from the roof terrace are spectacular. and the real fire place came into its own in the evenings when the sun had gone.

Wonderful Villas close to Marrakech

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of great friends at this wonderful villa close to Marrakech. The villa was located in an enclosed area with 24 hours security. The villa was complete luxury with wonderful facilities including great pool, gardens, beautiful views from the to floor at sun set plus it was very will kitted-out with TV and sound system, excellent kitchen + associated facilities.

Only 20 minutes to Marrakesh (there was a comprehensive guide that was available in the villa) which supplied excellent recommendations for restaurants etc (+ do's and don't's when in Morocco). Strongly suggest day trip trip to Atlas Mountains!

Can't wait to go back, highly recommended Simon.

Peaceful paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A really wonderful trip. What we found so brilliant is that the development is so peaceful, with your own pool, tennis courts etc, but the crazy buzz of Marrakech is only 20mins, and a cheap taxi ride, away.

The villas were just what we wanted. Really nicely done, with all the creature comforts we could want - wifi, satellite, AC etc.

Having the roof terrace is an added bonus, as the view of the Atlas Mountains at sunset with evening drinks really can't be beaten.

The coast at Essaouira is a charming fishing town about two & a half hours drive from Apple Gardens and features long sandy beaches, often with a prevailing westerly wind making it popular with wind and kite surfers,

The best Moroccan ski resort of Oukaimeden is about one & a half hours drive and also offers stunning views of the mountains and ancient Berber villages and Kazbah's.
