About Villa Shiraz

I built this villa with a team of architects from Europe and Marrakesh to give it the delightful mix of West and East. All the modern amenities of a luxury home in the West are provided while keeping the wonderful and mystical touches of Morocco. I was seeking much needed rest and relaxation and the quiet of the countryside but with the possibility of being near a bustling city. Villa Shiraz has provided me with exactly the right combination. I arrive exhausted from Geneva, London or New York to the oasis that is Villa Shiraz. I am met by my wonderful staff who pamper me with a hot mint tea . This is followed by a fantastic relaxing massage and I feel like a million dollars and ready to go to town or not, depending on my mood.

Many friends visit me and its wonderful to see how de-stressed they become after a day of pampering and good food!

My two kids also say they have the best time coming for a visit but also that their friends after staying with us, say that its the best holidays they have had in years.

My staff are wonderful, kind and considerate and caring. They take care of not only myself and my family but also friends and guests who visit. I get rave reviews about them specially my chef who is not only a superior cook both in terms of cooking European and Moroccan food but also she is an incredible gourmet pastry chef. It is truly a blessing having such wonderful people working with me.

Villa Shiraz purchased this villa in 2007

Why Villa Shiraz chose Marrakech & High Atlas Mountains

I chose this property for its location. it is 2-3 hours flight from most major European cities. You land in a different world, a different continent and totally different culture and geography. I like that idea very much. More then that unlike most of Europe, the sun shines nearly every single day and the light is amazing.

The property is set in a rural area but is only 15 minutes from centre of town. This also appealed to me as I can have the best of both worlds, city and rural life. While I live in an oasis of greenery and roses , away from the noise of the city I still have the possibility to be in one of the most lively and exciting cities in the world.

What makes this villa unique

"People who have stayed at Villa Shiraz talk of its "Zen" quality, "and its romantic setting". The villa is built on a 100 year old olive grove. The pool is magical and excellent for swimmers as it is 25 meters long. Swimming in the pool is also romantic and magical with its blue waters and the olive trees hanging over head,creating shade in the summer. .The views from the upstairs bedrooms of the Atlas mountains are spectacular and living in the house one feels the warmth and comfort of Moroccan living.

Perfection! fantastic villa, great food and wonderful service!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do the property justice,, it is beautiful ,well spaced and well decorated for comfort and elegance. The people who work at the villa are extremely professional and very nice. The cook is 5 stars cooking everything from Moroccan to European and lots of organic produce. Will definitely plan another trip soon.

Heavenly Villa. Pure luxury and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

What a truly fantastic place this is! It was our first visit to Morocco and we had no idea what to expect. There is always an element of the unknown when you book a holiday online and I can genuinely say that this property surpassed our expectations by a mile!

We were collected from the airport on our arrival as arranged by the owner. The people who collected us were very friendly and welcoming and put us entirely at ease. We didn't really want to hire a car during our stay so this was a real bonus. On arrival at the house we were presented with a fabulous three course meal and extremely nice Moroccan wine, this set the tone for what was to come. The chef at the villa is just amazing! With four kids and a hungry husband to cook for I was more than ready for a break from cooking and cleaning up and what a break it was. Every day Meryam the chef would present a fantastic selection of meals with something for everyone. Delicious home made soups, colourful tagines, grilled chicken and barbequed fish. Not to mention the pastries and desserts. Just wonderful.

The house itself is huge, very clean and very comfortable. despite being largely unaware of the presence of any staff, beds were made and bathrooms cleaned as if by magic. As soon as we ventured towards the pool, towels would appear along with a tray of cold drinks.

During our stay we took advantage of the concierge service which the owner recommended to us. This enabled us to take two day trips, one into the high Atlas mountains and one into the centre of Marrakech. These were very good and included our transport and lunch. The guides were very knowledgable and we felt that these day trips enabled us to see and understand a side of Morocco which we would otherwise have been ignorant to.

During our trip to the medina we visited the Hammam. This was a fantastic experience which I would definitely recommend along with visiting the gardens at Majorelle.

Overall, a wonderful holiday experience. Really good communication from the owner who is genuinely concerned that for those who stay in the villa every need is catered for. Frequent emails and a wealth of information meant that we were confident that we could expect a warm welcome and any problems or questions would be dealt with.

I would recommend this villa to anyone. Whether you want to explore Morocco or just stay put and enjoy the luxurious surroundings, this is like paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Shiraz. We believe that our guests should have an opportunity to relax and enjoy their stay in Marrakesh without worrying about what to do and what to eat. Total relaxation and enjoyment is our aim and we try to do this by providing an excellent and non intrusive service throughout the stay of our guests . we are really delighted that you enjoyed Meryam's cooking. She has been out chef for over 8 years now and her cooking has been enjoyed and commented upon by most of our guests. She has a diploma from the best cooking school and loves to take care of our guests and cook delicious food that is healthy and to the extent possible organic. We have added the new concierge service for our guests as we believe it can be a little overwhelming when one arrives for a holiday in a place that one has not visited before and may not have acquaintances to advise one on what to do or what to visit. The idea of our concierge service is that you have a team with whom you can discuss your needs and what you would like to do and they offer you advice and options to make your visit comfortable and memorable at the same time. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make your visit an enjoyable one and we do hope you will visit us again soon.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very large, set in a beautiful garden with a pool which is wonderful for proper swimmers. The whole property is maintained to the highest standard, immaculate in every respect. The staff are very capable and provide a complete service, cooking, cleaning and gardening.

Location is a few miles from central Marrakech but not a problem unless you want to go to Marrakech every day.

All the arrangements were made for us and everything worked perfectly.

A really well-run property, which will not disappoint.

Phenomenal Experience

  • 5 of 5

There was not a single aspect of our week in this property that wasn't a 5* experience. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the food is fantastic and as for the property itself, the pictures simply do not do it justice.

Taking the above into account, it was a highly relaxing, highly enjoyable week which we would recommend to anyone.

Everything was perfect. Easily the finest place I have ever stayed and I have stayed in some nice places. Courteous friendly staff, gorgeous, gorgeous villa. I could have stayed forever with my family and enjoyed the good life. Special thanks to Zohreh who made our arrival and exit as easy and welcoming as possible. If you can, take some time out here - we all loved it.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my daughter and family at this beautiful villa. It is a little piece of paradise, surrounded by olive trees in a truly beautiful garden. And yet, if you miss city life, it is only a short drive away from Marrakech and its bazar.

The house is very clean and the staff very nice and helpful. The meals were very tasty.

My daughter, who is two years old, enjoyed running around the garden. It is a perfect place for kids.

The swimming pool is quite big and was very clean.

Overall, a great experience, which I would absolutely recommend. I am planning on going back as soon as possible!
