Located close to the famous Jemaa El Fna square, the Villa des Orangers is a riad, a traditional medina house. This elegant and pleasant hotel with 27 rooms and suites is built around three verdant patios with a fountain, leading to galleries with carved plaster arcades. Upstairs, suites with private terraces overlook the medina. Rooftops converted into swimming pools, gardens, and sun decks overlook the old town and the Koutoubia Mosque, and have an unobstructed view of the Atlas mountains. The three lounges each have a fireplace, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere, and are unique places to unwind in the calmest of settings. On the garden side, the hotel also has sumptuous suites with balconies overlooking a large heated pool and two restaurant rooms, where you can savour Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.
Villa des Orangers supports the Centre Fiers et Forts (The Proud and Strong Center), a welcome center for underprivileged children in Tamesloht, a village located to the south of Marrakesh.
The Centre Fiers et Forts (CFF) currently welcomes and cares for about one hundred children who are fed, schooled and provided with regular health monitoring. Some also receive shelter. Villa des Orangers is particularly involved in their “educational” farm, which introduces the children to agriculture, sensitizes them to protecting the environment and provides the center with organic fruits and vegetables as well as medicinal plants.
