Built in the classic Moroccan style, its thick walls the colour of overripe apricots, Dar Lain is a chance to enjoy your very own Kasbah. Located 30 minutes from Marrakech and an hour’s drive from the mighty Atlas Mountains, this luxury home the perfect base for exploring town, country and desert.
The perfect second homes in Morocco
Dar Lain is set in landscaped grounds, just outside the picturesque town of Tahanoute. From the outside this piece of luxury real estate in Marrakech looks like a Moroccan citadel, its traditional pink-orange walls the colour of local clay. This stunning property in Marrakech features extensive walled gardens planted with roses, palms and olive trees. A glorious L-shaped pool is fringed by manicured lawns and flowering shrubs.
On the inside, Dar Lain feels more like a luxury riad hotel than a citadel, decorated in the contemporary-Moroccan style that has its roots in Moorish design. Carved wooden doors set in grand Moorish arches lead into the main living space where brightly coloured daybeds are scattered with red, pink and orange-striped cushions. The tiled mosaic floors are covered with Moroccan rugs.
And everywhere there are decorative accessories straight from the souk: lanterns, floor-standing candleholders, intricate filigree metalwork, and even a witty framed collection of Moroccan slippers.Upstairs the four bedrooms have elegant pencil post beds with jewel-coloured cushions. Tadelakt bathrooms have contemporary fittings and fixtures.
The outside living space of this holiday home is equally spoiling, with a covered dining terrace and sofa areas in which to relax and enjoy a cup of mint tea, served from a traditional silver teapot. At night, the garden and terraces take on a whole new magic, lit by flickering lanterns and fragranced by roses.
From this perfect oasis you can make easy journeys into Marrakech or into the Atlas Mountains or head afield to Essaouira on Morocco's west coast or even southwest for an overnight trip to the Sahara Desert.

“Dar Lain is a stunning villa with lovely gardens surrounding it. The rooms are large and comfortable and the space is perfectly set up for either couples or families. The pool is heavenly with a shallow area for children and surrounded by the lovely gardens. The pool is close to the house which is an added bonus for all the inevitable to ing and fro ing that children require!!”

Think of Marrakech and you are probably conjuring up images of snake charmers, dancers, musicians and storytellers. And you'd be right. Cultured, energetic Marrakech is one of the few places in the world to have embraced modern-day living without losing touch with its exotic, medieval heritage.
