Vacation Rental Description
'Villa Semlalia' is a modern house in a residential area situated within 10 minutes walk of the centre of Marrakech and sleeps up to 10 people.
Private, fenced pool , 2 roof terraces with views, one of which stretches to the snow covered Atlas mountains, this house is incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated and is an ideal location to discover Marrakech, even without the need to hire a car. It is about 10 minutes walk from the trendy and westernised Gueliz part of Marrakech, and comes with services of a housekeeper/cook, who can cook breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The house comprises 1 master suite with a large en-suite bathroom, lounge area and a flat screen TV, 4 double bedrooms, 2 living rooms and a dining room. Air-conditioning and British satellite TV are in each bedroom.
The villas was wonderful, the pictures really do not do it justice.....The villa was spotless, exceptionally well equiped and luxuriously furnished. Even it it was to be fully occupied there is plenty of room to get away from one another and you certainly would not feel that it was crowded, in fact there is so much room that if five couples stayed you could easily not see each other if that was what you wanted, even on the terraces you could have privacy. I believe that it is exceptional value for money, located in a very nice area which is convenient for the european quarter.
