Me my family had excellent Holiday here at the Villa its a beautiful Villa with lovely Garden. I highly recommend it. My advice is contact owner get a pickup at the airport as we did, stop over at the supermarket get some grocery or amenities or hire a car at the airport to make it a easier enjoyable Holiday. Caretaker is there to help and was helpful but we niether spoke French or Berber so was difficult to communicate but otherwise is a lovely man and very helpful and is available 24/7

The villa is located about 40 an hour from Menara airport and about fifty minutes from the centre of Marrakech,We stayed at Villa for a week and really enjoyed the beautiful and tranquil surroundings of the villa.The house is set in the middle of the woods but prestigious complex and is very secluded.Our garden and pool were maintained every day and a wonderful houskeeper called Brahim looked after us,in fact he was fantastic. You should bring your own groceries and water. The weather ws hot and there is only on air-condition er and we knew that!!! May be the owner can add more Air-cons. I guess we were lucky because it did not rain. We did not bother with outside as the dirt road was nice for hiking and biking. We had time to explore the river and the lake. The DVD player and the TV worked and we did not experience any issues with the electronics. If you like total peace and quiet i can definately recommend here.

My family and I enjoyed staying at Le Menzah . It was very exclusive and private. Especially for families.
The service was excellent Brahim prepared our food and Rachid was there for us all the time.
We recommend this vacation rental 1oo %. It was worth the price and the time.

We enjoyed our stay in this house very much, and were happy we did not have rented in Marrakech itself, as this was an oasis of tranquility.
The family of the owner took very good care of us (which was also neccesary as the household only speaks arabic, but is also very friendly).
A car is a must, but you will not find this property for the frst time on your own, so a deal with the owner to capture you at the airport is neccesary.
We loved the swimmingpool, which was brand new.
Our holiday was an adventure and it was great
My friends and I recently stayed in the villa and had a great time. Morocco is lovely and having the peace and quiet of the villa to come back to in the evening was great (having the private pool doesn’t hurt either). It made a good base from which to visit various places and is only 45 min (roughly) from the centre of Marrakech. Brahim the caretaker was very helpful and one evening made us some excellent couscous. A 10/15 min walk from the villa are a couple of restaurants on the banks of Lalla Takerkoust. Definitely worth a visit. Its worth having a hire car in this area, but we managed well using the driver recommended by Rachid (the villa owner).

"I cannot recommend villa menzah highly enough. Whilst at the villa brahim looked after us and made sure that we had a relaxed and comfortable stay and when we wanted to explore Marrakech and the surrounding areas brahim was on hand to advise and guide as required. These two men made our Marrakech break extremely enjoyable and our cautious and wary attitude to driving around was quickly taken away when brahim helped guide us, even providing navigation when we needed it .brahim even arranged a fantastic meal and celebration for my wifes birthday at a very nice hotel restaurant. To sum up I would say that we will definitely return to villa menzah as soon as we can and have found two new friends. In my opinion you could find no better holiday accommodation and service in Marrakech than at Villa menzeh."

"Our party of six guests stayed at Villa Le menzah during December 2010 for a period of 45 minutes drive from the centre (Medina), so you will require transport to get around. The peaceful surroundings you get though are well worth it.
You will be met at the airport by Brahim (the caretaker) and said (the driver), make sure to stop off at the supermarket on the way to the villa to stock up on bottled water and a few grocery items.
Villa Le menzah is an attractive traditional villa with a large fruitful garden. It comfortably sleeps six guests in the three bedrooms, and there is a very large separate marquee styled entertaining room. However, the weather is so perfect that you will spend most of your time at the villa outside in the outdoor living space. The patio furniture is comfortable and the gardens attractive.
At Villa Le menzah you will be able to enjoy freshly squeezed oranges that you have picked yourself and enjoy freshly brewed traditional mint tea.
The kitchen is on the small side, but we still managed to cook our breakfasts and enjoy evening barbecues.
It is a good idea to pay for the maid to come in a few times to freshen up the rooms (which could do with a little maintenance), and she will also do laundry and ironing services if required The housekeeper is onsite and he maintains the grounds every day.
There was a lot that we wanted to see, do and experience during our short stay, so we hired the guide, brahim, and the caretaker for five days. said has an eight seater people carrier which is spacious and makes sightseeing accessible for a large party. We went as far afield as Essaouira on the Atlantic coast and to a Berber village in the Atlas Mountains. We toured the Medina, experienced a traditional hammam, dined at traditional resturants and went quad biking in a mini oasis!
Life is good
