*Fresh meals and babysitting services for a little extra (see “Terms and Conditions” for pricing)

Our jewel-toned, air-conditioned apartment sleeps up to four guests in one bed and two daybeds, and is cloaked in the rich and romantic purples, reds and indigos that define Moroccan décor.
Many of our guests tell us this apartment occupies the perfect space in Gueliz Marrakech: the city center is just outside, but we’re located on a quiet street behind Mohammed V Avenue, where the city’s noise doesn’t reach.
Also included in the price of your booking is access to a secure, exclusive swimming pool just 5 min. away from the apartment, kept a secret by groves of palm trees, orange trees, and flowering bougainvillea. (A pool this sparkling, sunny, and well-kept is a rarity in the city center! Access during the opening season 15 Feb-15 Nov.) Take an afternoon dip and stretch out on a lounge chair for a nap in the sun—even the beach towels are included! Then, put on some sharp clothes for evening and head out with your significant other for an intimate dinner at a nearby restaurant, a coffee at a local café, and a stroll through the lush gardens of Harti and Majorelle.
When you return home for the night and sink into the sumptuous French-sized bed, draped in a royal red bedspread and lit by elegant luminaries, the bustle of the city will feel very, very far away.
If you’d rather stay in for dinner, Atika, our housekeeper and cook, will prepare an authentic Moroccan meal for you right in the apartment’s sleek, eat-in kitchen (for an additional charge). Take a seat at the traditional, 4-person dining table and enjoy a glass of wine and good conversation. Or, shop for fresh produce at the central market and prepare your own meal in the fully-stocked, American-style kitchen.
When you’re done cooking, enjoy your meal outside on the walk-out terrace with garden table and chairs.
And of course, the lively and ever-changing Jemaa el Fna square—which will enchant you with its food booths, snake charmers, monkey trainers, storytellers, and other artists—is just 10 minutes away.
Our first priority is making sure our guests enjoy vibrant Marrakech as much as we do, and experience it as locals would. That’s why we offer reasonable rates and a wealth of extras to give you a trip to remember for a lifetime.
Please call us today to book your Moroccan holiday! You won’t regret it!

Agnès et Phillippe sont des hôtes chaleureux et attentifs. Nous avons été en communication toute la durée du séjour.
Sur place, Jamila a assuré une présence rassurante et toujours là en cas de besoin. Une femme d'une incroyable gentillesse !
L'appartement est en tous points conforme à la description. Proche du centre ville et de toutes les commodités.
L'appartement est très bien équipé et très propre. De plus le ménage est fait tous les jours.
Nous nous sentions comme chez nous et en famille.
Merci encore Agnès et Phillipe, nous pensons déjà à nos prochaines vacances chez vous
Nous sommes heureux de lire que vous vous êtes sentie comme chez vous et en famille ! C'est exactement l'expérience que nous souhaitons procurer à nos voyageurs et le sens de de notre implication sur Airbnb.
Notre volonté et notre démarche vont bien au-delà du fait de proposer un endroit pour dormir, même si, comme vous l'avez souligné, l'appartement est idéalement situé et bien équipé.
Et merci pour votre gentil mot à propos de Jamila; elle est ravie !
I had a great three days in Marrakech and this was in great part due to Agnès Et Philippe-Alexis making sure everything ran like clockwork. The taxi was waiting for me at the airport even though I was delayed and Jamila, their apartment manager, was at the apartment waiting for me, as I arrived.
It is a lovely 1 bed apartment and looks much better than the photos! Very clean, with a well equipped kitchen, though you will probably not use it as it is so cheap to eat out anyway. A/C and a lovely shower. What more could you want.
Whatever you need they were easily contactable via whatsapp or text message and they respond very quickly, if not immediately.
It is a little out out of the Medina, in the new town, but I liked the fact and there are some great cafes and restaurants closeby. Most importantly, the pool, located at the Hotel Diwane, 50 metres next door is easily accessible and Jamila will get passes for you as long as you ask a day in advance. It is a lovely great place to wind down after a day navigating the heat and the streets.
I will definitely stay here next time I go back.
Many thanks Agnès Et Philippe-Alexis.
We are flattered to read that we have contributed - a little - to the success of your short stay, Grant!
What could be more normal than to find a clean, well-equipped and well-maintained apartment?
You're right, the swimming pool access that we offer is a real plus, it is rare to have such a pleasant and relaxing swimming pool right in the middle of town.
Our goal is to help you have the most enjoyable holiday possible and it's normal to be available and reply to all your questions quickly.
We can't wait to see you again in Marrakesh!
We had great communication once booked and our Hosts arranged a 'pick up' from the airport. This was at no cost and we were transported to the Apartment (10 - 15 mins drive). A huge Thanks to our hosts who made the holiday so enjoyable. It was a great location, the apartment was cleaned on a daily basis. It had a balcony which was great to enjoy the Marrakech sunshine. Plus we had access to WiFi and a very enjoyable hotel swimming pool within a minutes walk. The Apartment is close to local cafe's (we enjoyed cafe de L'Atlas a 2 minute walk and cafe Emirates a 5 minute walk. There are also many other great restaurants and shops within easy walking. The medina is a 20 minute walk (taxi if too hot!).
We had a lovely four night stay at Agnes and Philippe-Alexis's Marrakech apartment. They were attentive hosts and were very contactable and very happy to answers all the questions we had. The apartment is beautifully decorated and a great size. We really appreciated all the little extras: the airport transfer, access to the gorgeous pool, and dinner prepared for us on our first night. Location-wise, you are in the heart of the new town with great restaraunts nearby- we normally got taxis into the medina, which are very cheap (otherwise it's about a 30-40min walk). Overall we'd be happy to recommend this apartment as a great place to stay if you are visiting Marrakech. Merci beaucoup, Agnes et Philippe-Alexis!
The apartment looks just as advertised and was very clean. The pool is actually part of a hotel around the corner, which I didn't gather from the photos, but it's so nice of the owners to get us a pass. Unfortunately, we had bad timing at the apartment and there was a party in the building until 5am with blasting music. The linen closet was locked, so we didn't have access to enough towels or sheets for the bed in the living room. The maid was very nice to do our laundry though. Overall, it's a very nice apartment, but we didn't have a great experience.
Thank you for your review, and we’re glad you enjoyed the pool and the cleanliness of the apartment. The maid works very, very hard, and cares as much about our guests’ happiness as we do!
We offer our apologies for the less-pleasant aspects of your stay. Because the apartment is in the thriving center of the city, noise does happen…and unfortunately we cannot control that. Though we do offer quieter accommodations outside the city for those who seek a slower-paced experience.
As to the linens, we are puzzled as we reached out to you shortly after your delayed arrival to make sure everything was to your liking…and we did not hear from you for an entire day. With a quick message we would have gladly made arrangements for you to access the extra linens you needed. These requests are never a bother for us! Nevertheless, we were glad to host your short stay in Marrakech and wish you happy travels.
This was the best experience with airbnb appartments and hosts I had so far since I stopped booking hotel rooms. The location was near everything you need.A big supermarkt is 10 min away a small one around the corner as well as the pool was and car rent and a alcohol shop if required.The rooms were as on the photos and the daily cleaning perfect with a nice and polite maid always on time. All in all it is a quiet place .. may be at The Weekend 1 day with music until 01:00 p..Marrakech is a vivid City
The costs prepared Anything you need in advance and were always reachable in case of questions in a surprisingly short time.
All in all: highly recommendable place to stay in Marrakech
We appreciate your kind words about our apartment, and we’re glad you decided to stop booking hotel rooms in favor of more authentic Airbnb rentals! That is a wise choice with many benefits. We’re glad to hear the apartment lived up to your expectations and hope this solidifies your decision to favor rentals over hotels. Should you return to Marrakech, we would be happy to host you again!
Rigtig fin lejlighed, helt perfekt når man rejser med børn. værterne var utroligt gode til at spørge til om alt var i orden og vi brugte dem til daglig kommunikation gennem whatsapp, da maiden kun talte fransk og arabisk. Rigtig fin pool, som lå meget tæt på lejligheden på et fint hotel. Det var luksus at blive hentet i lufthavnen, der var handlet dagligvarer da vi kom og hver dag når vi kom hjem var det gjort rent. Alt i alt en rigtig god oplevelse og vi vender gerne tilbage.
Thank you for your comment, Mathilde! We are glad that we contributed to the success of your stay in Marrakech.
We believe that communication with our guests is essential.
To help you further, we also provide plenty of advice and tips for making the most of your trip on our blog location-marrakech(.info)
All the best,

About the Host, Agnès Et Philippe-Alexis
ENGLISH (French below)
Maybe you’ve heard this advice from the writer Toni
“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. Hotels were always booked during
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
—a picturesque village in the South of France—
and energetic Marrakech, where we spend our holidays.
Perhaps that’s why welove 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.
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!

Peut-être avez vous déjà entendu ce conseil de l’écrivain
Toni Morrison : “S’il y a un livre que vous voulez lire, mais
qu'il n’a pas encore été écrit, alors vous devez l’écrire..”
Notre histoire en tant que propriétaires de locations de
vacances à Marrakech ressemble un peu à ça.
En 2003, nous étions déjà des voyageurs réguliers à Marrakech
depuis pas mal d’années. Autant nous aimions et apprécions
l’hypnotique beauté et l’animation de la ville rouge, autant les
logements faisaient défaut.
A cette époque, Marrakech était de devenir une destination
mondiale renommée et il n’y avait pas assez de place pour
accueillir les visiteurs, de plus en plus nombreux.
Les hôtels étaient toujours complets durant les pics
saisonniers et souvent, les touristes qui n’avaient pas réservé à
l’avance se voyaient contraints de dormir sur les terrasses.
Nous avions en tête un endroit où nous aimerions séjourner.
Il serait authentique et avec une décoration locale, mais
suffisamment moderne et au centre de tout. Il permettrait de
bénéficier d’un accueil chaleureux, d’avis, de recommandations
et de conseils personnalisés, de la part de quelqu’un qui connaît
bien la ville.
Mais, pour nous, cet endroit n’existait pas encore à Marrakech.
Et donc, nous l’avons créé.
Plus d’une décennie après, nous avons une jolie collection
de propriétés dans notre chère ville de Marrakech.
Le plus gratifiant pour nous, c’est quand nos voyageurs, qui
viennent de partout dans le monde, nous écrivent pour
nous dire à quel point ils ont apprécié leur séjour. Nous adorons
ouvrir des lettres et des e-mails contenant des photos et des
récits de leur voyage.
Nous aimons tellement accueillir des vacanciers que nous avons
fondé la « Communauté des Hôtes de Marrakech » pour les
hôtes Airbnb dans notre région. Aussi souvent que nous le pouvons,
nous nous réunissons pour discuter des moyens visant à améliorer
l’expérience des clients et la commercialisation
de nos locations à Marrakech.
Lors de notre dernière rencontre, plus de 60 personnes
étaient présentes et désireuses de partager des conseils et des idées!
Il n’y a pas deux endroits plus différents que ceux dans lesquels
nous vivons : un village pittoresque dans le sud de la France et
l’énergique et tumultueuse Marrakech, où nous passons nos vacances.
Peut-être que c’est pourquoi nous les aimons tant tous les deux :
ils se complètent mutuellement!
Notre activité favorite pour nous relaxer à Marrakech
(elles sont nombreuses!)
est de réserver un hammam entier, rien que pour
nous (ma femme Agnès et moi). Pour nous, c’est peut-être
l’expérience la plus sereine et luxueuse au monde.
Si vous vous posez des questions sur la façon de profiter de
Marrakech jusqu’à la dernière goutte de thé à la menthe, ou
jusqu’à la dernière miette de corne de gazelle, nous aimerions
Notre objectif est de faire votre expérience avec nous, LE voyage
de votre vie. Beaucoup de nos voyageurs ont d’abord
réservé une première fois chez nous puis sont revenus ou ont
prolongé leur séjour.
Un témoignage et un symbole de notre dévouement!
Nous sommes impatients de vous accueillir et vous faire découvrir
le meilleur de Marrakech. Contactez-nous dès maintenant pour
votre réservation ou pour obtenir des conseils pour votre voyage!
