“This is a truly stunning property and Chris made sure that everything was well organised from the driver meeting us at the airport to lunch ready on our arrival!. We were a large party as the whole family went (2 couples, 4 children + grandfather) but there was plenty of rooms for us all and the cook did so well to accommodate our various dietary requirements which is a challenge for anybody! The children loved the pool and the large space for them to play football and we enjoyed the beautiful gardens and stylish decor. The weather was also fabulous in February half-term although we believe this was unusual. Highly recommended!”
Chris's reviewsAs a host (13)
“We had the most amazing time in Marrakech at Christmas beautiful oasis of a villa. The property was stunning, to the highest spec and so spacious. The staff were the real treat, taking care of our families and allowing us to fully relax without the hassle of cooking every day! Chris was super helpful and put us in touch with a driver that we used for the entire trip. We went into Marrakech several times but also to surrounding country clubs and golf courses which were stunning. I could not recommend Chris’ villa more - it was the perfect trip! ”
“This was a great experience. The Villa is a gem and all the staff is wonderful. We had an amazing time and felt like home. We totally recomend it ”
“We stayed at Chris' house for a week in October 2019 and have never stayed in such a beautiful, relaxing property. Everything about the trip was amazing, from our correspondence with Chris to the sheer luxury of the villa, to the wonderful girls at the house, Cherif the driver, and just the fantastic city that is Marrakech. We cannot recommend Chris' house enough. Thank you for letting us stay and having the most fantastic holiday.”
“We had an incredible, restorative vacation at Chris's villa. It is , first of all, breathtakingly beautiful (the photos, as lovely as they are, do not do justice to the place itself.) . But it is not only stunning to look at, it is also completely comfortable, warm, and welcoming, with lots of thought put into practical concerns like lighting and mattresses and linens and pillows! Add to this a pristine pool, flowering hedges, orange, pink, and red bougainvillea blooming everywhere, pomegranate, date, and lemon trees, lots of birdsong and a burbling fountain. What you get is truly a paradise. The garden is dotted with inviting spots to sit and relax or read, small groupings of very comfortable chairs and tables so that you can follow the shade or the sun as the day goes by. Inside, as grand as the salon is, it is also a cozy place to hang out, with big soft velvety couches to curl up on and read. We got very attached to Khadija and Aicha, who are sweethearts, and spoiled us silly. Khadija's cooking was so wonderful and the terrace such a beautiful spot for dining that we quite lost interest in trying out restaurants! Basically, we barely wanted to leave the place at all. I would love to go back. Chris has put together a very informative and useful guide to the house and included lots of helpful ideas about places to go in Marrakech, which we completely followed! His communication with us at every step of the way was really super. Thank you so much, Chris, for sharing this shangri-la with us! ”
“This was the best stay ever! AMAZING is too small to describe our experience in Chris' house. We are so grateful. Everything was perfect. Quality all the way. We loved it and it made our stay in Marrakech incredible and magical. We sure hope we can go again. Many many thanks to Chris and the staff. C'était vraiment absolument parfait! ”
“Perfect time !!!! See you next time ! Thanks for your perfect staff and very wonderful home !!!!”
“Bonjour Encore merci pour notre séjour dans votre magnifique palais marocain. Le séjour était un enchantement; la demeure est véritablement magnifique ainsi que le très grand parc rempli d'arbres de toutes sortes où l'on peut même manger des fruits directement sur les arbres. La piscine immense permet de se rafraichir mais aussi de véritablement nager. Quant au nombreux personnel, trés attentif et compétent, il rend le séjour encore plus merveilleux; nous l'avons déjà fait de plusieurs façons, mais remerciez encore les cuisinières et les jardiniers de notre part. BIen cordialement Christian Jean-Marie”
“This was my second time in Chris his villa and I am starting to feel very much at home and love the staff. We had a stunning time. This time I was visiting with my family. After my first visit they couldn't believe my story about this great place. But now they agree that I haven't said a word too much! Hope to visit your home again soon! Thanks again Chris! ”
“We had a tremendous time at the "palace" of Chris where everybody helped us to have a unforgettable stay. Amazing cook and very good tips also from Chris to visit around. A unique experience that I warmly recommend!”
“We had an incredible time at Chris house if not to say palace in Marrakech! The staff was extremely nice and the cook did excellent marocan meals. The beauty of the place, its serenity and the birds singing, the huge pool was a unique experience far away from the busy Medina that we loved to experience as well. The driver was very reliable too. Chris is a great host and very quick to answer any questions. he gave us good tips for discovering Marrakech as well. We can only warmly recommend this swap!”
“We’d wanted to visit Marrakech for some time, so when Chris suggested a swap we were thrilled. We were even more excited when we looked at the photos as the house looked breathtaking. In fact the pictures don’t do this stunning home justice, it is palatial and incredibly luxuriously furnished. The pool and gardens are nothing short of fabulous. We loved eating oranges straight from the trees. Speaking of eating Khadija made us the most wonderful breakfasts and delicious dinners all served up by the ever smiling Aicha, we all became very fond of these two lovely ladies. One other thing that we really loved was that there were many different places around the property to sit and relax, by the pool on the enormous terrace, in various areas of the gardens, or on the enormous roof terrace ( we had coffee there most mornings to watch the sunrise ). Thank you Chris and family so much, both for a wonderful holiday and also for all your excellent communication, help and advice. We look forward to hosting you in France. Warmest wishes The Conways ”
“Still waking up from my Marrakesh dream! We have had a gorgeous time in Chris his house. It was an overwhelming experience! We can recommend his house highly. We will definitely plan a new visit. Marrakesh and the house stole my heart. Working on my French, as I promised Aisha and Khadijah. Thanks again Chris. For being a wonderful help during our stay. And next time we will also make more trip with your super friendly driver Cherif! And already looking forward to enjoy more wonderful food made by Khadijah! Need I say more?? Thanks many times! ”
