The Home

In summary

Villa "Dar Abiad" is a magnificent property located in the heart of the mythical Palmeraie of Marrakech. This superb family home was built by the famous architect Elie Mouyal and decorated by Jacqueline Foissac. The villa exudes an old-fashioned charm that transports you to the Marrakech of the 1970s that we all fantasized. One can easily imagine the figures of Yves Saint Laurent strolling in blue djellabah on the terraces or catch sight of Mick Jagger sharing a mint tea with Marianne Faithfull at the edge of the pool at sunset.

The villa can accommodate up to 16 people (12 adults and children) and is the perfect place to stay for an incredible holiday in Morocco. The exceptional charm of the place will seduce travelers in search of authenticity. No flashy luxury or modern equipment here, but a promise of calm and rest in a place that has been beautifully weathered by time, with discreet staff and family service.
