Villa Ramalah Aourir near Agadir, Morocco
We bought Villa Ramalah about 9 years ago – it was a wreck and needed total refurbishment and rebuilding – the original house was 1/2 the size and had a huge tree growing out the middle! Over the years we have done about 4 upgrade projects, with the final one about 2 years ago when we decided to move from the UK and live in Morocco forever – so we wanted it perfect and to our tastes by the time we arrived.
Our ever patient and helpful friends Laurence and Michel have been involved in this project from day 1 and have helped us through the minefield of paperwork and stamps required – but the outcome is superb and we could not be happier.
Villa Ramalah is a pretty villa situated right on the beach front in Aourir, 100 metres away from the sea . From the front courtyard, you are practically on the beach. We designed it upside down to normal houses in the UK.
The villa has two large bedrooms with ensuite wetrooms situated on the ground floor. The third bedroom is on the top floor with stunning views of the Banana beach area.
Climbing up the first flight of stairs takes you directly into the main living area. This is a kitchen and living area with dining room. Following the stairs up again will lead you onto the first Sun Terrace, office and 3rd bedroom, from here you can enjoy the spectacular views of the beach and the sea.
A further flight of stairs takes you to the top Sun Terrace with stunning views of the Banana Beach bay and behind, views of the mountains and village of Tamraght and Aourir. There is a pergola for shade and a large table for outside dining and barbeques.
The Villa has a front courtyard and an enclosed courtyard, which is quite uncommon in Morocco. There is a large partly shaded patio area which is ideal to just sit and watch the world go by. The well is at the front of the house under the patio.
