The home to our Moroccan retreat is the Domaine Malika. Situated in a large valley planted with olive trees and pines, our Villa offers breathtaking views of the Atlas Mountains and is so other worldly that it is often likened to the Garden of Eden. The inside of our boutique villa is just as magical. Each room is decorated with antique furniture for an elegant and unostentatious style in harmony with the local architecture and location. Poolside accommodations makes this the perfect place to unwind and recharge on our Moroccan getaway.
Our villa is located in a small Berber village where a trip to town is like stepping into the past. The rustic-looking homes invite in a sense of curiosity and wonder. Fresh Moroccan mint tea and homemade olive oils and flatbreads nourish the body and soul. The awe-inspiring views of the Atlas Mountains may even spark a flame of adventure.
