About Villa Mandarine
A wonderful, small, family-run guest house transformed from a mansion house; full of luxury and character. Located in a 'well-to-do' suburb of Rabat (10 mins drive from city centre), the Villa Mandarine is a majestic guest house of both Moroccan and European design surrounded by lush and tranquil gardens. In fact the gardens are one of the best we have seen in Morocco (outside the Royal Palaces) - hundreds of citrus trees, elegant lawns and abundant flowers and other shrubs. This guest house is set in an orange grove and offers an outdoor, heated swimming pool.
The owners of this wonderful property are French and their family has been here for generations. The current family incumbant is a history of art professor and there are wonderful pieces of Islamic art throughout the property.
