About this property

Located just 20 minutes from the souks of Marrakech, this luxury villa in Morocco to rent is a haven of peace and tranquility in the Moroccan countryside. Dar Saffron is a contemporary house in the style of a traditional casbah. Relax by the 15 x 5 metre pool while sipping a cocktail, or savour a meal at the dining table or at one of the many outdoor sitting spots in the one hectare grounds – complete with stables and a view of the Atlas mountains. Or take a long soak in the sumptuous bathtub after a day exploring the sights of nearby Marrakech.

Luxury villa in Morocco to rent in the traditional casbah style

Built in 2019, the exterior of Dar Saffron was inspired by traditional Berber design. The fittings are a mix of contemporary chic and Moroccan and European antiques. The lounge room has a fire place and a TV nook, where you can stretch out on a comfortable day bed. The main bedroom overlooks the pool and the magnificent stables, and has a beautiful bathroom and private verandah. The second bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and opens onto an expanse of lawn, while the third is usually a study, with a large wooden desk, and has a convertible sofa bed as well as an ensuite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms are in a separate building from the main house and share a bathroom. One of the bedrooms also has a desk. There is air conditioning in the main bedroom, and ceiling fans in the other bedrooms.

A reliable housekeeper is on hand during the day to clean and prepare breakfast. For an additional cost, she can also make dinner. The property is surrounded by a wall, and there is a guardian. During your stay, the pool will be cleaned regularly and the plants watered. There may be horses on the premises – if so, a buggy ride may be possible. There are also hens to provide fresh eggs.

The Neighbourhood

You will need a car, or we can arrange for a private car and driver during your stay. Parking is available on site. Dar Saffron is located on a quiet country road near the small town of Tamesluht, with an attractive backdrop of the High Atlas mountains. It’s less than a half an hour drive from Jemaa el-Fna and the souks of  Marrakech. The airport is 26 minutes away.
Some of the most prestigious hotels and facilities are based in this district, including the Royal Palm Golf and Country Club, Marrakech Golf Club, Beldi Country Club and Ritz Carlton Residences. All have restaurants and swimming pools, and some have spas which you can use during your stay. Other activities in the area include horse riding and polo playing.The villa is well placed for day trips to the High Atlas mountains and berber villages. A pleasant day trip is Barrage Lalla Takerkoust, where lunch or a snack can be enjoyed at La Flouka, overlooking the lake.

There are several small restaurants in the vicinity of Dar Saffron. Food can be purchased from local markets and stores. The Carrefour supermarket is a 20 minute drive.

Home truths

Things the photos don’t tell you, but we do.

  • The 15 x 5 meter pool is only 1.70 metres at its deepest point, so is unsuitable for diving.
  • There is no pool safety fence, so young children cannot be accommodated.
  • Only the main bedroom is air-conditioned. There are fans in the other bedrooms.

Other things to note

Around 9 am on weekdays, you may be fortunate to get your own private aerobatic show, as the Royal Moroccan Air Force Marche Verte Aerobatic Team often practice spectacular stunts in the area. See the photo of one of their displays.
