Dar Liqama in Marrakech
Our Moroccan cooking school at Dar Liqama is located just outside the ancient imperial city of Marrakech, a walled garden city of tall graceful palms set beneath the snow-capped Atlas Mountain range. About ten minutes from the medina, you will find the Palmeraie, a grove of over 150,000 towering palm trees. It is here you will find the luxury villa Dar Liqama, aptly named the ‘house of green mint.’
Our luxury palazzo, set against the backdrop of the majestic Atlas and Jbel Ette Mountains, was constructed to reflect the traditional style of Moroccan architecture while offering modern conveniences. Magnificent Moroccan antique doors open from the grand columned entrance, as well as in the great hall and dining room. The graceful archways of the villa create a calm and elegant ambience surrounding an interior courtyard filled with scented flowers and the calming sounds of a bubbling fountain.
The eight spacious bedrooms of Dar Liqama are decorated in traditional Moroccan style and all have bathrooms en-suite, ambient wall lighting, limestone Tadlakt wall finishes, and most rooms feature private fireplaces. The luxury villa’s large upper terrace has a panoramic view of the Atlas mountain range and sweeping views over the Palmeraie. The peripheral salon features a rustic fireplace and pergola with underfloor heating for those cool evenings. Swimming pools, a Hammam (Turkish steam bath), an exercise spa, tennis courts, games room, and conference facilities are sensitively integrated among the palm trees.
The Owner’s Villa A short distance from the main house, sits a truly remarkable villa with each of the five bedrooms opening to a large traditional central courtyard, shaded by orange trees with a cascading waterfall fountain. The sumptuous three-room master-suite features a private dome-covered bath and the four additional bedrooms contain individual fireplaces and luxurious en-suite bathrooms. The villa’s rooftop terrace, with a brick oven cooking area and alcove seating, sets the stage for unforgettable lunches and dinners beneath the sparkling Moroccan sky. The seclusion of the private pond-shaped pool, surrounded by flowers and palms, provides the perfect refuge on a hot summer day.
