Description from owner


An organic modern living space has been moulded around ancient sandstone columns and thuya wood ceilings and then a mix of eclectic colorful lighting and furnishings has been added, mainly from the 1960's era. The house sleeps eight and special attention has been made to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Each client is given a pair of babouche [Moroccan slippers] to use in the house and to take home with them. Local Argan soap, towels and bathrobes are also provided.

The house is built around a central courtyard and comprimises 4 storeys. On the ground level there is a library connecting to a chill out room with fire place. Out in the courtyard is a fountain and rest area. On the 1st floor there is an open plan fully equipped kitchen/diner at one end, a living space with stereo in the middle and two fire places and a moulded bedroom and shower room towards the back.The 2nd floor has two double bedrooms with pod fire places in each. Inbetween the bedrooms is a curved bathroom with skylight. You walk straight out onto a large terrace which has a very rustic sun shade area with seating, next to this are a couple of sun beds and a hammock.You go up again to a double bedroom with glass fronted doors folding out onto a private terrace with a sink moulded into the wall. There is a seating area up here too.
