About this listing
For rent in full, this charming villa enjoys a unique and wild lakeside. Wooded garden, swimming pool, zodiac ... Many tourist activities available. Warning: the lake level varies with the seasons.
20 kms from Ouarzazate, the villa and pool meet the needs of discerning holidaymakers in search of calm and wishing to recharge. For this we chose a Berber-inspired décor at once comfortable and casual. Its unique and direct access to the lake are its major assets, and its 180 ° panorama embraces the snowy chain of the Atlas.
The kitchen is equipped, but we encourage the use of a stove. This is cheap and really simplifies life. The villa has 3 bedrooms with double bed, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds, and 2 bedrooms with a double bed plus a single bed. Each has its own bathroom.
The double living room has space away for reading or watching television.
The house is rented fully with the exception of a small house in the garden, which houses a private collection of fossils and archaeological exhibits tracing the history of life on earth from the beginning to the present. This collection is available at all times, with the only condition to be accompanied by our faithful Amzile.
Amzile our caretaker who lives on site, looks after the garden, maintaining the house and meets all your needs.

Guy is a really lovely and accommodating host. He stayed up until the early hours in the morning so he could help us find the villa. We were very weary when we got there, the staff were on hand with food and drinks to welcome us.
The villa itself is even better than the pictures and didn't disappoint; it's absolutely stunning! But for us the best part was the garden, it is nothing short of magical; in the evening you can lie in the double hammock and watch the stars; the Milky Way and constellations are easy to make out and it wonderful to lie there with a warm desert breeze brushing over you. The garden is lit in the evening with twenty lanterns or more making it even more beautiful than it is in day time. The house itself is also beautifully lit and furnished.
The dinner cooked by the resident cook is better than any restaurant in town; fresh, plentiful and delicious. We had an amazing time and are already planning our next trip. We didn't venture far from the villa and spent our days just hanging in the infinity pool enjoying the amazing view. Some in our party swam in the lake which is full of turtles. The house is a destination in itself, we couldn't quite get over how lovely it was. We can't wait to go back.
Beautiful villa with the most wonderful, kind and accommodating hosts.
Guy is extremely nice, and his team made us feel so welcome. I sadly had to leave for work, but my friends and fiancee raved about the hospitality. Got to try quad-biking in the desert! The food was lovely too.
Only issue was the cockroaches, which sadly were very bad when we were staying. The team did try to alleviate the situation, and were planning to exterminate the villa when we left. Realise it's perhaps just how things are in Africa, so not too worried, but that was the only issue.
Again a wonderful stay with a great host & beautiful place.
Superbe villa avec un cadre reposant et très beau.
La demi-pension était super. Un grand merci à Amzile & co !!!
Comme chaque année, avec un groupe de collègues, nous choisissons une destination pour y passer un week end long ensemble et décompresser.
Après avoir fait Marrakech l'an dernier, cette année notre choix s'est porte sur Ouarzazate car nous voulions tenter l'expérience du désert.
Afin de réaliser cela il nous fallait donc un lieu ou loger et notre choix s'est porté assez facilement sur la villa de Guy.
En effet elle était pas trop loin de l'aéroport et du centre ville de Ouarzate ensuite les tarifs étaient vraiment intéressants, et pour finir les photos de cette villa et son emplacement sont vraiment magnifiques.
Et je vous rassure tout de suite, la villa est encore plus belle que sur les photos, un vrai havre de paix et de beauté. De plus nous avions pris l'option d'une cuisinière pour nous faire à manger et la c'est le summum du rêve!! tout était très bon!!
Pour finir nous tenions à remercier notre hôte Guy pour sa disponibilité et son savoir vivre, merci à lui de nous avoir récupéré et emmené à l'aéroport à notre arrivé et départ.
Et merci encore pour nous avoir partagé pendant ses quelques jours sa magnifique résidence qui porte dignement son appellation de Villa.
Daou et ses collègues.
It's a wonderful house and Guy and his team are super friendly and helpful. We had an amazing stay and I can only recommend spending time there. The food was also really good :) Thank you for everything
Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine en famille dans cet endroit idyllique. La villa est encore plus belle en vrai que sur les photos et la vue est incroyable ! Eelle est en outre très bien située pour toutes sortes d'excursions passionnanetes (Aït Ben Adou, les gorges du Dades, la vallée du Draa, le désert de Merzouga…) Guy et Amzil nous ont très bien reçus et leurs conseils ainsi que leur prévenance nous ont été précieux (notamment, l'agence de voyage recommandée est d'un excellent rapport qualité/prix). Nous la recommandons à notre tour. Enfin, ne passez surtout pas à côté de la demi-pension : Hind a de l'or dans les mains et nous a régalé soir et matin de milles plats aussi délicieux que variés !! Mille merci à nos hôtes pour ce plaisir des yeux et des palais.
