L'Amandier - luxury villas in the Atlas Mountains

As you know by now we LOVE the Atlas mountains. The fresh air, the amazing views and the beautiful nature up here is to die for. There are some ok kasbahs and hotels to stay in but the only true luxury place so far is awesom Kasbah Tamadot, where we stayed some weeks ago (see previous blog post). 

The nature up here is truly unique and it is just a one hour drive from Marrakech. So far to buy a house of some standards in the mountains has been almost impossible. But now all that has changed. Now there is L'Amandier!

Beautiful landscaped gardens and magnificant views surround the 12 villas

L'Amandier means almond grove and is the name of this new luxury development which is surounded not only by the most spectacular of Atlas mountain views but also by almond and olive trees. It is a beautiful spot with a 360 degree view of the mountains. 

There are 14 villas with 2 or 3 bedrooms built in traditional materials but with a contemporary design and modern take on the Moroccan design heritage. The villas all have their own private landscaped gardens with views of the mountains, roof terraces and a small pool. This villas have great finishings and the highest possible standards.

Later this year a five star boutique hotel will also open here and the owners of the villas will have access to the spa, restaurant, activities and aupport of the hotel. We can't wait to see what the finished hotel will be like, one thing is for sure, the views will be to die for and the infinity pool the coolest one in Morocco. Stay tuned for a review and pictures later this fall when L'amandiar Hotel & Spa opens and we check in to check it out.

You can also add on services like cleaning, gardening, poolkeeping, grocery shopping etc at a very reasonable cost and you can also get help furnituring the house (but that is great fun to do so why give up roaming the souks for treasures?). There is 24 hour security and service of the property. This is probably a very solid investment, prices are expected to increase 20-25% later this fall when the hotel and spa is open and operational. The villas are aprox 329-349.000 £.

If you are interested in investing in a very unique property in the Atlas Mountains you must hurry, there are only two villas left for sale. If interested, email us for contact details (per.sjodell@gmail.com).
