Set in the privacy of nearly four hectares of land and only 5 minutes drive from the Royal Golf Club of Marrakech, the Amelkis Golf Club or the Palmeraie Golf club, BALIA, is a development of 9 similar and independent villas all with private pools which were built in 2002 and provide one of the best value for money deals in Marrakech.
There are two 'communal' tennis courts, and a communal pool of 800m2 on the domaine, a bar open from April to October, as well as four wheel drive vehicles (FREE OF CHARGE for under 100 kms per day). Some of the villas have heated pools and all villas come with the services of a maid/cook and transfers to and from the airport are possible (supplement). All houses have air-conditioning, heating, internet access.
Each of the nine villas, like Villa Addika, is of a high standard and is situated on the grounds of the Domaine which goes by the name of "Le Jardin des Oliviers", an ancient but re-planted olive grove, on the old road to Ouarzazate. The domaine is private (there are 24 houses all together on the domaine, built by a French-Moroccan architect, entirely gated and has 24 hour security.
Balia is only 9km from the centre of Marrakech and offers tranquility, peace, quiet, views of the Atlas, and verdant gardens. The old road to Ourzazate is like an oasis amidst the region's arid landscape, so you can enjoy the calm and relaxing surroundings and still be within 15 minutes of the Souks in the Medina.
Through the front door there is a hallway which leads into a big open plan living room and dining room. The living room has a fireplace and is furnished with comfort retaining the unmistakable Moroccan style - traditional craftsmen were employed using authentic materials like dark wood and tiles to make this a harmonious setting.
There is a large kitchen, however, the maid is very happy to attend to your needs, and usually does all the cooking.
21 steps go up to the landing where we find 2 bedrooms both with double bed, a terrace, and an en suite bathrooms with a washbasin, a toilet, and a bath with a shower over it.
Two other bedrooms have 2 singles, a communicating bathroom, but no terrace. There is another small terrace off the landing.
Each villa has it's own private pool, some of which can be heated for a supplement.

The Marrakech/Essaouira region
Apprx 10 minutes drive from 3 of Marrakech's golf courses:
Golf Amelkis, the Royal, and the Palmeraie Golf.
The Koutoubia mosque, a Marrakech landmark, surrounded by sunstruck rose gardens and distinguished by a 230-foot, pink sandstone tower.
The Place Jamaa el-Fna, the heart of the medina and the liveliest, most un-reconstituted UNESCO World Heritage Site ever seen. Incomparably seductive Souks Berber carpets, spices, silver, Berber jewellery. Ben Youssef Medersa, one of the Muslim world's great educational centres. The recently restored, domed Qubba, a Medieval water station, and the Museum of Marrakech, which puts contemporary art in the frame of a late 19th century Moroccan palace. South of the Place Jamaa el-Fna (only appx 15 minutes drive), there are palaces, gardens, and museums, such as Dar Si Said, dedicated to the arts and folk crafts of Morocco. On twisting alleyways nearby is Dar Tiskiwin, an elegant townhouse, open to the public as a museum and full of Moroccan and sub-Saharan wonders collected by Bert Flint, a Dutch expatriate.
The Place Jamaa el-Fna - Marrakech is always a little bit of everything: djellabas and babouches, bright colours, energy, heat. Once you've wandered around the stalls, gorged on all the mouthwatering food and watched everything on the square, it's time to retreat to one of the many cafes and watch the goings-on from a distance. In terms of views, though not of food, the best are the rooftop cafes.
