About the property

Three-Bedroom, Private Riad Villas for a Hidden Slice of the Real Marrakech

Included in your nightly rate at Dar Babouche Villa are the services of both a maid and a cook (you purchase the groceries.)

Your large group will get along fabulously at Dar Babouche. Open, bright, and spacious common areas, including courtyard and rooftop deck, provide plenty of space for gathering together in celebration. Meanwhile, 3 bedrooms—each with its own private bathroom—allow you to retreat into calm privacy.

Dramatic arched doors swing out to your tranquil center courtyard for your group only (not visible to any other accommodations). In the courtyard you will find a second, full living area with lounge couches—perfect for naps or conversation—shaded by lush desert landscaping.

Sit down to an authentic Moroccan dinner, prepared by your own cook, at an open-air, outdoor dining table in the courtyard. While you dine, you can enjoy the soundtrack of a Moroccan fountain bubbling into your own private wading pool, heavenly for an evening dip to cool off after the heat of the day.

If you’d rather prepare your own meals, a full kitchen awaits for just that purpose. A large indoor dining table with place settings for 8 provides another lovely eating space. Air conditioning keeps the entire villa cool and inviting.

Palm Plantation, where Dar Babouche is located, is a small-scale resort with just 30 private villas in the Moroccan riad style. Palm Plantation is set amid the famed palm groves on the outskirts of Marrakech. Resort amenities, which are shared with the other villas at Palm Plantation, include a 30+ meter long swimming pool, a pool house, and a hammam massage parlor.

Marrakech is a vibrant place, dazzling guests with steaming food stalls at the Djemaa el-Fna square, the persistent yet friendly souks of the Medina, and the clomp of the caleches (horse-drawn carriages) in the street. All of this is just minutes from the Dar Babouche Villa, yet you would never know it judging by the peace and quiet of your accommodations.

At Dar Babouche you will find a cool, private respite from the sensory explosion of unforgettable Marrakech. Contact us today to book.

About Agnès & Philippe-Alexis

Maybe you’ve heard this advice from the writer Toni Morrison:

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

Our story of becoming holiday rental owners in Marrakech is something like that. In 2003, we were frequent visitors to Marrakech. As much as we loved the beauty and liveliness of the Red City, the accommodations were lacking.

At that time, Marrakech was becoming a global destination and there weren’t enough places for visitors to sleep.

Agnès & Philippe-Alexis purchased this villa in 2005

Why Agnès & Philippe-Alexis chose District of Annakhil

Hotels were always booked during peak season. We had a place in mind where we would love to stay. It would be authentic, with local design and architecture. It would be in the center of everything. And it would provide a warm welcome with one-on-one travel advice and guidance from someone who knows the city well.

But, for us, that place didn’t exist yet in Marrakech. So we created it.

Over a decade later, we have a collection of properties in our beloved city of Marrakech.

Most rewarding for us is when our guests from around the world write to tell us how much they enjoyed their stay.

We love opening letters and emails with photos and stories from their trips. In fact, we love hosting guests so much we founded the “Community of Marrakech Hosts” for Airbnb hosts in our region.

As often as we can, we gather to chat about strategies for improving guest experiences and marketing our properties in Marrakech. At our last meeting, more than 60 people showed up to network and share ideas!

There are no two places more different than where we live—a picturesque village in the South of France—and energetic Marrakech, where we spend our holidays.

Perhaps that’s why we love them each so much: they compliment each other!

Our favorite activity when unwinding in Marrakech (there are many!) is to book a whole spa with a hammam, just for us (my wife Agnés and I). It’s the most serene and luxurious experience in the world.

What makes this villa unique

If you have questions about how to enjoy Marrakech down to the last drop of mint tea, we would love to help.

Our goal is your great travel experience. Many of our guests have stayed with us before and returned—a testament to our dedication!

We look forward to hosting you and introducing you to the best of Marrakech. Please contact us for booking and travel information!

Incredible Marrakech experience!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in Agnes' and Philippe-Alexis' villa for four nights!

We absolutely loved the Villa and the surroundings!

Agnes and Philippe kindly arranged transfers for us from and to the airport which was great and hassle free. There was a lady, Ms Amina, who was looking after us and the house during our stay!

I cannot praise her enough! We would give her money and she would go groceries shopping and cook for us. Her cooking was absolutely delicious and better than most restaurants that we tried during our stay. The living room in the villa is quite spacious and really nice! We would eat in the garden by the pool which was kind of surreal and very beautiful!

I highly recommend staying at Agnes and Philippe's villa! Even though we didn't meet them, they kept in touch via whatsapp and were quick to respond, as well! Everyone was nice and attentive!

Incredible Marrakech experience! Would definitely go back again!

Quiet, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a one week stay at this villa outside Marrakech. The grounds are well kept and there is lots of space between villa buildings and on the grounds. The pool was operating but much too cold for us but not for some others who regularly swam.The villa holds six guests with en suite baths.

The place was very clean and a cook/maid came each day but Sunday for 6 hours. She was quite friendly, helpful, and capable. She made omelets several mornings, picked up food for us several times and made a wonderful lamb tajine late lunch accompanied by the lightest and fluffiest coos coos ever.The villa was just as the pictures showed and it was wonderful to have the peace and quiet of the location after 10 days on the road throughout Morocco.. We took cabs to and from town every day and the prices greatly varied for the service. If you want the hustle ,bustle of Marrakech 24 hours a day this is not the place to stay but if you want to be comfortable in a pleasing environment not far from the action this is the place.

We would highly recommend renting this villa and may do this in the future.

Villa très agréable ...

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine ma famille et moi même dans la villa Babouche de la résidence Ayda.(6 adultes et un enfants)

Les propriétaires ont été très prévenants et nous ont fournis tous les détails nécessaires à nos vacances , ils sont facilement joignable et réactifs

Nous avons été accueillis très chaleureusement par Amina qui avait prévu notre arrivée tardive et nous as préparé un très bon repas fait maison composé d’une entrée , d’un tajine et d’un dessert très rafraîchissant !

La villa est vraiment agréable, elle comporte une petite piscine privatisée en plus de la grande piscine (en commun) de la résidence . Il y a deux terrasses où l’on peu se détendre et apprécier un bon thé à la menthe . Un salon salle à mange avec des chaînes dans de nombreuses langues.

Les chambres sont correctes tout comme là literie.

Les serviettes de plages et linges de maison sont à disposition .

Le villa se trouve à 10min en voiture de la place Jam3lfna, si vous êtes plus de trois le chauffeur de la villa et son minibus s’avère plus rentable que des petits taxis qui ont tendances à gonfler le prix dès que l’on prononce le mot « palmerais » la résidence se trouve à l’entrée de la route de la palmeraie (a ne pas confondre avec la palmeraie des golfs qui est à plus de 20min du centre). Sa localisation garantie le calme loin de la ferveur des souks .

Points positifs :

Amina: c’est une excellente cuisinière qui n’a rien à envié au cuisto de la grande place , son service est appréciable, très courtoise et discrète à la fois !

La villa : on s’y sent très facilement chez soi, c’est propre , elle est bien équipée et située .


Piscine privée

Petit bémol :

Un peu plus de lumière dans les salles de bains aurait été grandement appréciable

L’eau chaude qui n’est pas en continue (temps de rechargement)même si un coup de fil sur à ce propos aux propriétaires a été efficace sur le sujet .
