Indoors and outdoors
The outside walls, coated with a mix of straw and lime, combined with the massive columns, embedded with ocean pebbles, are the witnesses of a subtle combination between the local countryside regional style and reminders of the immediate vicinity of the Atlantic Ocean.
Two traditional fountains with very clean lines give a specific atmosphere to the inside atriums and lead the visitor into flowered trails reaching a pool area (8 metres x 2.5 metres) and a petanque. A 160 m² sundeck terrace offers a view over the inside gardens with their olive tree, argania tree, and palm trees.
The villa has a private heated pool (15x5m) and a petanque.
Staff and services
Dar Maha staff consist of one person in charge of house cleaning and breakfast preparation. We kindly ask guests to pay a small fee each day for this service. We can provide a chef daily for a total cost of 20 euros (excluding cost of food) per meal. The chef will take care of meal preparation (lunch and dinner) as well as food shopping.
