An introduction to Villa Arnkar

How would you describe Villa Arnkar in a nutshell?

Villa Arnkar is a very quiet and peaceful luxury villa rental, just 20 mins outside of the centre of Marrakech in central Morocco. It’s a Moroccan mansion of 260 square metres living space surrounded by 1273 square metres of lush green. With space for up to 9 guests, it’s perfect for families with children, as well as groups of friends and couples. The villa as a whole is a beautiful interplay of oriental details, traditional Moroccan architecture and modern design. Its artfully arranged garden and high-class hotel services round it off as an oasis of serenity and relaxation.

What was your inspiration to buy the house and rent it out?

My partner works in advertising and I am a lawyer, yet both of us have a knack for interior design and decoration. We’ve always loved Marrakech and used to stay at hotels during our stays here. When we saw the house and discovered its architecture, we knew that we wanted to acquire it and make it available to like-minded individuals coming to Marrakech. Charles Boccara, a very famous architect in Marrakech, is the creator of Villa Arnkar. I then designed the interiors to be Moroccan with modern touches.

Villa Arnkar rooms & rates

The villa is a one-story building within the gated complex of Domaine de l’Akhdar. With four generously proportioned bedrooms there is space for up to nine adults. The bedrooms are very bright and breezy, with high vaulted ceilings and beautiful French doors. Two of the bedrooms are next to the living room; both have access to a terrace, the garden and the pool. At the back of the villa is a conservatory with a large dining table, a TV room, and two additional bedrooms, one double and one triple, with garden views. The rooms have an en-suite Moroccan-inspired bathroom with high-carved ceilings and skylights, ‘tadelakt’ wall finishes and Fez-tiled floors.

For the interior design of the villa, we chose to combine antique and contemporary pieces, using handicrafts that Morocco is well known for. Therefore the atmosphere at Villa Arnkar is very cosy and quiet. The house itself is not super luxurious, but the attention to detail, its decoration and design radiate a feeling of luxury.

We want our guests to be fully taken care of during their stay at the villa, which is why Villa Arnkar has a house manager onsite. There is a housekeeper, of course. We can arrange for a private cook to prepare all meals and also offer other catering options. At the same time, the villa has a fully equipped kitchen for those guests who prefer to cook for themselves, air-conditioning as well as heaters and a fireplace for the colder months of the year. For guests with babies, baby cots can be added on request.

The gated community has very nice areas that are available for everyone, such as a large swimming pool and a tennis court. The villa has a private pool and a spa with a hammam and a massage room. Treatments with one of the masseuses can be booked ahead of time. We can arrange for excursions to Marrakech or the surrounding areas, as well as any kind of transfers. There is even a complimentary on-site mini bus service.

Most of our guests actually spend the majority of their time enjoying the peace and quiet of Villa Arnkar. Of course, a trip to Marrakech is a must! We do however recommend booking a cab if guests want to go to town. There they can dine at cosy traditional restaurants or try some of the more elegant locations. Besides that you should visit the city gardens, famous Jemaa El-Fna square, and also Majorelle Gardens. I personally cannot wait to go back to the Yves Saint-Lauren museum.

A great choice for a day trip would be an excursion to the Atlas Mountains. It is only an hour and a half by car but there you will find yourself in extremely beautiful surroundings, and it’s great for any outdoor activities. Another recommendation would be the charming city of Ouarzazate, nicknamed ‘The door of the desert’, and the striking landscape of the Zagora desert.

The location of Villa Arnkar

We are in a residential area outside of Marrakech. You could walk from the villa to the nearest village in only 10 mins, within a 15-minute drive guests will find a supermarket, where they can buy virtually everything, and Marrakech’s Medina and also Jemaa El-Fan Square are only 20 mins away by car. That is what is so nice about the villa’s location. You are far away from all the crowds, allowing a more peaceful and relaxing vacation yet the centre of town is close enough for short trips. This part of Morocco is totally different from anywhere in Europe or the United States; it’s unique. At the same time the city is always evolving, more and more museums are popping up as well as various other things to do.

When is the best time to visit Marrakech?

This part of Morocco, and especially Marrakech is a year-round destination. July and August are very, very hot so that we don’t recommend visiting during those times if guests don’t appreciate high temperatures. From March to May and from September to November are particularly nice times to visit.
