The Home

Dar 118 used to be a traditional house of the Sidi Mimoune district in the Medina of Marrakech. The riad was entirely redesigned in 2010 by Ludovic Petit as a very private retreat. The other major feature of Dar 118 is the unobstucted view of the gardens of the legendary Mamounia palace. The view from the rooftop terrace is indeed one of the most pleasant in Marrakech.

Dar 118 is organised as a riad with its open central courtyard, which is also covered in winter.
A spiral staircase distributes floors. The decor is minimalist, designer furnishings with a Beldi touch (traditional), beautiful large prints and photos ornate the living room and bedrooms.

The house offers two double bedrooms with bathroom and toilet. Located on the first floor, those two large bedrooms have king size beds. They have direct access to the gallery's first floor. The bathrooms are beautiful, comfortable and of contemporary style.
An additional bedroom or office area with shower and toilet is available in the patio.

Bedroom 1: 1st floor, king size bed, ensuite bathroom with shower and bath, air conditioning
Bedroom 2: 1st floor, king size bed, ensuite bathroom with shower and bath, air conditioning, satellite TV and DVD
Bedroom 3: ground floor, double bed (140cm width), ideally suited for 1 adult or 2 children, ensuite bathroom with shower

Dar 118 has a large living room with fireplace and dining area. Beautiful dining room table designed by Ludovic Petit. Very well equipped kitchen with espresso machine.

The house also features a hammam and massage room. Masseur and beautician on request.

On the roof terrace, lounge area with dining tables and exclusive view of the gardens of Mamounia, in the shade of large parasols. The pool is a real treat. It is heated!

The villa staff consist of a manager, a cook and a maid taking care of every detail in the riad.

Riad moderne et lumineux. Très clair et bien décoré. Très bien situé près de la place djema el fna. Très calme. Le personnel est charmant et aux petits soins
Je n’en vois pas
Riad très bien entretenu, décoré avec goût.
Les chambres sont bien agencées avec des salles de bain fonctionnelles et agréables. Nombreux rangements.
Belle TV dans la chambre principale (pas utilisée).
Le service des personnes affectées au riad est top : chaleureux, disponible et souriant.
Disponibilité appréciée de Villa Novo à l’accueil et tout au long du séjour.
Pas identifié
The villa was amazing and the roof top is absolutely lovely.
The views over the gardens are superb and the house is literally right on the edge of the gardens which is amazing.
Bedrooms are large and the air conditioning is very good.
Very clean and modern and the design of the house is beautiful.

Very friendly and quick response to matters from Villanovo. Would be great to be able to settle final bills using a credit card as we didn't get a house bill until very late and then had to wander around looking for a cash point.
A bit more contact with the staff would have been good to understand when they were around and to be able to let them know in advance if we were in for lunch or dinner. Just to be asked at breakfast what our plans were would have been helpful.

A little book of inside knowledge would be good. What to pay for taxi's especially. We got asked for all sorts of amounts but in the end settled on 50 dirham per ride (about 5 euros). when we went shopping with Salima from the house however it was 10! ha!
Très bel aménagement du riad, terrasse privative agréable
personnel de maison de qualité
belle situation géographique
Bien située, calme.
Mathilde de Villanovo excellente.
Courses beaucoup trop chères.
Personnel trop présent : nous avions demandé que le petit déjeuner et le personnel mangeait ou faisait une sieste dans le Riad en journée.

COMMENTAIRE PROPRIETAIRE / OWNER'S COMMENT :
Je vous remercie pour cette location et pour vos commentaires et j'espère que vous avez passé un bon moment malgré tout à Marrakech. Vous ne m'en voudrez pas de remarquer que vous étiez 4 personnes pour 6 jours et vous avez dépensé 2000 dirhams (soit 190 euros) pour un dîner plus le vin pour 4 personnes et 6 petits déjeuners plus vos boissons. Cela fait 83 dirham par personne par jours (7.57 euros). Ca ne me parait pas excessif.
Le personnel est à disposition pour vous rendre service. C'est son rôle. Peut-être n'avons nous pas été assez précis sur ce point. Si vous ne souhaitez pas leur présence ils est tout à fait possible de leur indiquer afin qu'ils rentrent chez eux.
Je me permet enfin de remarquer que vous avez laissé 50 dirhams de pourboire pour 3 employés de maison (4.54 euros soit 1,51 € par employé) !
We absolutely loved this Road. The first night, it was daunting walking through the back streets at night and wondering where we were staying, but once we arrived through the doors ..... wow!

The facilities were great, the staff were absolutely superb, and like family towards the end. The quality of the cooking ... we tried eating out a couple of times during the week, and to be honest, it was not even close to the quality of what the two ladies served up. Our children can be fussy, but they ate everything! Already recommended to several friends and family, and done a review on Trip Advisor.

VILLANOVO : Never come across you before in the UK, but now we are looking at our next holiday with Villanovo already!
The only small issue with little kids is the privacy of the bathrooms, but we found ways around this and it was not a problem.
Amazing villa! Absolutley beautiful! And the food was amazing!
The home itself was spectacular. The location was also superb.
The fact that none of the staff spoke English was a problem. We worked around it but it posed a challenge.
Magnifique riad idéalement situé dans la médina et donnant sur les jardins de la Mamounia.
Aucun!!
Sa terrasse avec piscine
Les toilettes et douche de la 3eme chambre
Dar 118 is a beautiful property that is well-maintained. The staff was very welcoming. Said is available to help take care of any details around the house. Selima is an incredible cook. The dinner she cooked for us on the day we arrived was the best meal of our entire stay in Morocco and it was priced much lower than a local restaurant. Said had arranged for all of the items we requested on our arrival (more than 20 liters of water, fresh fruit, and some wine). The photos of the property are very accurate. The rooftop is a very relaxing place to watch the sunset.

The online booking and payment service for Villanovo was great. The only improvement would be if I could also pay for additional services and food through the online site with a credit card as well. Having to gather cash in Morocco is difficult when the ATMs are limited to 2000 Dirhams per day. We had to have multiple people use multiple ATM cards to pay our bill. One payment with a credit card would have been preferred.

We had one issue with Villanovo and it was related to a guide they had arranged. The price the guide requested was 50% higher than what Villanovo had stated the guide would cost. The guide also showed us a confirmation message from Villanovo that showed he had been told it was the 50% higher price. The price wasn't a problem, but it created an awkward situation with our guide.
The neighborhood is a trade off between having a quiet location close to the Medina, and having to walk a little to catch a cab. The walk is easy, but since you walk you avoid some of the city car-related traffic noise by the time you get to Dar 118.
Beautiful villa, with very friendly staff.
Le fotografie del sito corrispondono pienamente con l'abitazione come è in realtà. La proprietà è tenuta in ottimo stato (ho notato che "difetti" segnalati in recensioni precedenti sono stati eliminati) ed è dotata di ogni comfort e ampi spazi, sia comuni che privati. La pulizia è impeccabile e le specialità che ci sono state preparate per cena, adattate alle nostre necessità per motivi di allergie, sono state ottime. Le colazioni copiose e variate.

Villanovo : Agenzia molto professionale, operatori molto gentili, disponibili e preparati.
Nessuno, salvo forse l'acqua della piscina, non proprio "calda".
Proche de la place , quartier calme.
Quelques travaux d'esthétiques à faire (la peinture des murs sur la terrasse s'effrite)
- Le personnel et la cuisinière (impeccable).
- Très beau riad (décoration, espace, terrasse,...).
- le calme et les jardin de la Mamounia.
- Je ne vois vraiment pas !!!
Tres agreable riad, beaucoup de volume, tres confortable, idéalement placé dans une médina très calme et très propre.
20 minutes a pied de la place Jemaa el Fna
La terrasse tres bien aménagée donne directement sur les jardins de la Mamounia. Magnifique concert d'oiseaux chaque matin et tres jolie vue sur la Koutoubia.
2 belles chambres bien agencées dont une avec une fenêtre sur l'exterieur du Riad.
Le personnel très agréable et acceuillant . Merci à Said, Selima, et Hind.
Excellente cuisine grâce a Sélima !!!

Un peu loin du parking, un bon 5-10 minute de marche pour y arriver.
veritable problematique de Wi fi, ca rame severe, il faudrait s'inscrire a la fibre.
leger probleme de canalisation et d odeur au sous sol notamment dans la salle de massage, mais rien de grave.
La troisieme chambre est plus une chambre d'appoint pour une personne seul, et non une chambre a part entière.
La seconde chambre n'a pas de fenêtre sur l exterieur, attention pour les personne claustrophobe.
The staff; Selima, Siad and Ent (I am not sure about the spelling) were amazing. Fantastic food and they took care of the Riad like it was their own. They spoke only a little English ( which we knew before booking) but it wasn't a problem. They were very kind and considerate.

Lydia, our villanovo concierge, set up a tour of Marrakech on the first day that was not good. The other tours she set up were wonderful and she was easy to connect with.
A long, dark alley to get to the place. The bedroom on the first floor was s bit small and the bathroom was tiny and split up.
Ras
Troisième année que nous revenons dans ce Riad
C'est pour dire notre enchantement
Nous reviendrons l'année prochaine
L'installation cette année de la bâche en haut du Riad pour couvrir le patio
On ne peut plus admirer le ciel
C'est trop ferme
Il faudrait l'ouvrir tous les matins quand il fait un temps splendide
Et les odeurs de cuisine se propagent partout et surtout dans les chambres
tout est remarquable , qualité des lieux et de l'accueil , calme incroyable
je suis impatient d'y retourner l'année prochaine
la troisième chambre vraiment plus petite
seul petit axe d'amélioration , un frigo sur la terrasse pour garder les boissons au frais
de plus , l'utilisation du hammam devrait être incluse
enfin , le scooter dans l'entrée ( à qui sert-il ? ) n'est pas très joli
Maison très confortable, belle décoration, terrasse avec piscine suberpe.

Service client très réactif et aimable. De plus à notre arrivée nous avons eu la visite d'une représentante Villanovo et nous avons trouvé ça génial!!!
La 3eme chambre qui est au RDC est plus petite que les 2 autres.
The Riad was fabulous. Lots of space.
The staff were amazing and understood our little French!
Sa localisation et son environnement verdoyant. Le bassin sur le toit. Son hammam et sa salle de massage. La qualité de la cuisine et la gentillesse des 2 dames à demeure.
La taille du lit de la chambre du rdz de chaussée.
Le coût des denrées ne nous ont pas parues en cohérence du tout avec la réalité du coût local.
Le coût des extras (capsule Nespresso par exemple) est vraiment inadmissible vu le prix de la location.
The atmosphere, the food, the staff ...
Some furnitures (terrasse) suffered a bit due to wether conditions .... (surface of tables ....) ...
L'intérieur est superbe, à tel point qu'il a été copié!

Mais la "3ème chambre" n'est pas faite pour un couple, plutôt pour une personne ou des enfants, à signaler à la réservation.
Manque de déco, de végétal, d'un peu de couleurs sur la terrasse.

Les bacs en métal sont HS. Les tables n'en sont pas loin...

En fin de journée, quand on veut se reposer dans la chambre, ou faire une sieste, on ne peut stopper le bruit du moteur
piscine, et c'est très gênant.
Second time we have stayed at dar 118, I would highly recommend a stay to others, staff were amazing as usual which we have now become friend with, didn't want to come home as felt so tranquil an calm, looking forward to going back to morocco and will be certainly staying at the same villa, thank you for yet another perfect holiday. ;)
Said was very helpful with tips for city restaurants etc & made some great recommendations
The Riad was amazing & staff attentive / very hard working
Lovely views from the rooftop
Great that the Villa Novo rep came to visit & answer any questions we may have. However it would have been good to be informed that the staff spoke French only. Actually this was great for me as I have been learning & wanted to practice, but a little challenging at times.
The shower in the second room flooded (drains were blocked)
We had a fantastic time. Said and the women were great. Very welcoming and helpful. Thank you for a great time.
Rien a dire
Cela fait 2 fois que nous venons
Tout est est très bien
Il manque une télé dans une des chambres du haut
Pourquoi ?
We were met at the airport as planned, then at the medina gates, where our baggage was taken to the Riad, as planned. Said welcomed us, made us feel comfortable, and then our house staff Seleena and Hakima made us tea and fresh orange juice and we felt like we had just landed in paradise! They are incredibly helpful, generous, and knowledgeable people and our trip wouldn't have been as amazing as it was without them. Thank you!

My only complaint (and i really have to reach here as I really have no complaints whatsoever) is that I received an automated message indicating that i had money owing when I had in fact paid in full. I know it's a computer glitch, but perhaps one that should be taken care of at some point so people don't worry that their money transfers haven't gone through.
Originalité, décoration,espace,piscine,calme,accueil,organisation du personnel. Parfaite pour une occupation à 4 personnes (2 couples)
chambre du rez de chaussée moins spacieuse que celles du 1er étage : peut-être occupée seulement par une personne seule ou par des jeunes moins sensibles à sa situation et sa surface.
La déco, la piscine, la VUE !
Son emplacement,sa terasse avec vue sur les jardins de la mamounia, sa déco .... Mais surtout l'attention du personnel, sa gentillesse et la qualité de la cuisine !
La cheminée ... Très agréable le soir dommage qu'elle refoule ....
Said et Samila : super, unanimité de toute l'equipe.
Piscine sur le toit, donc toujours du soleil.
Déco magnifique.
Près du centre.
Propre.
Pour la question suivante (A la suite de votre séjour, recommanderiez-vous cette maison), cela a déjà été fait, dès le lendemain par mon amie.
Des gens de Loudéac
On a renconté Lydia de VillaNovo. Bon contact et s'occupe de ses clients. Très sympa.
Manque une chambre pour venir à 4 couples !!!!!!!!!!

Un Riad magnifique qui nous permet un dépaysement et une tranquillité absolus ! Tout était au rendez-vous pour assurer des vacances merveilleuses.
AUCUN
La situation exceptionnelle de la maison, le calme et le toit terrasse avec piscine sur les jardins de la MAMOUNIA, Magnifique !!. L'accueil du personnel et sa disponibilité.
Nous avons apprécié la décoration et l'agencement de la maison. Ce RIAD est très convivial, on s'y sent comme chez soi.
Excellentes prestations de VillaNovo, accueil téléphonique irréprochable, bon suivi client.
La chambre du bas (que nous n'avons pas utilité cette fois ci) un peu petite et surtout elle ne possède pas de grand miroir.
Le montant des courses pour les repas nous a semblé plus élevé que lors de notre séjour en Novembre, surtout par rapport au pays.
Il nous a été communiqué que le Hammam allait être payant (10 € par personne) un peu cher, surtout que le prix du RIAD est déjà élevé.
This was one of our best family vacations ever. Sa'id, Hakimah, and Saleemah worked so hard to take the best care of us. The food and service were outstanding. The house was absolutely gorgeous. We didn't want to leave!
Je voulais vous informer que le séjour s'est très bien passé! Le Riad est vraiment bien!! Acceuil chaleureux, cuisine parfaite, service impeccable, tout est parfait. Merci pour tout, nous reviendrons.
Maison très agréable. Chambres spacieuses et parties communes très agréables. Personnel attentionné . Cuisine excellente
Escalier design mais problème de garde corps pour les très jeunes enfants.
Le dar et la service etaient magnifique. Une experience unique et exceptionnel. A la prochaine !
Accueil chaleureux, Le Riad est très sympa avec très belle vue sur le jardin de la Mamounia, les chambres sont magnifiques, nous avons beaucoup aimé les repas de la cuisinière ainsi que l'aide et la disponibilité de Said.
Problème d'électricité quand le hammam et la piscine marche en même temps

Riad magnifique, spacieux, décoré avec énormément de goût.
Les enfants ont adoré la piscine.
Personnel charmant, aux petits soins.

Des vacances de rêve !
La vue sur les jardins de la Mamounia avec tout le calme et la détente que cela engendre.
Le bassin chauffé sur la terrasse.
L'agencement du Riad.
Le personnel ultra efficace et adorable.
Je suis désolé de ne pas avoir pris le temps de répondre à votre questionaire.
A mon retour au travail, j'étais débordé et je n'avais guère le temps.
Notre séjour à été remarquable, le service et l'accueil fut excellents.
Nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir dans l'un de vos prestigieux résidence ou d'en faire une recommendation à mes amis. Nous gardons vos informations précieusement pour nos besoins future.
Merci encore!
Nous avons adoré. Très belle maison. Massages de grande qualité.
The experience was incredible. This is the best House I have never been. Every place in the Riad has been decorated and very well done. Sunset from the terrace is incredible as you have a big garden in front of the riad. The riad is 10 min walking from the Place Jemaa el Fnaa, so no better place to stay. One of the best things is Said, the one that is going to help you during your stay, allways willing to help you with everything. I hope we meet him again. Completelly recommendable and I will repeat the experience in the future for sure.
