BFB's Overview

This elegant cluster of sophisticated villas is an oasis of barefoot luxury nestled beneath the brooding Atlas mountains, just 15 minutes from the heart of Marrakech's bustling medina but a world away in terms of chilled out relaxation and family-friendly appeal.

Whilst the magic and mystery of the souks is the highlight for most visitors to Marrakech, for families staying at Fawakay, the magic happens closer to home thanks to the charming hospitality of the British family who run it and their friendly band of children, donkeys, chickens, cats and staff. Dawn and Francis Boys-Stones swapped City stock-broking for exotic Marrakesh back in 2005 and initially brought up their four young children in the heart of the Medina before moving 8 miles out to the 3.5-acre Fawakay estate just a few years ago. Here they manage the delicate balance between independence and sociability, luxury and laid-back style with aplomb.

The estate is now home to three stylish villas, each with their own private plunge pools, the Boys-Stones' own home and a stunning central pool area with pretty shaded day-beds and cabanas for dining. Breakfasts, light lunches, snacks and the children's menu are always available and can be enjoyed in the villas, on their terraces or poolside, whilst delicious 3-course dinners can be pre-booked in advanced and enjoyed by candlelight inside or outside, whilst little ones are safely tucked up in bed.

On the subject of tiny travellers, the Boys-Stones' wealth of experience with their own four shines through at this fantastically child-friendly Moroccan escape. A handy list of baby and toddler gear including, cots, highchairs, sterilising tablets, baby monitors, toys, DVDs etc, are available on free loan plus babysitting on request and even activities such as cookery lessons, pizza making, mocktail blending, princess pampering and rides on Doris the donkey. Plus there's a play area with swings and slide and a dedicated kiddies pool by the bar.

Accommodation Overview - Villa Taos (sleeps 8-10+cots):
Villa Taos is the most private and secluded of the three villas at Fawakay. It comprises four bedrooms including an upstairs family suite with double bed and interconnecting children's twin, and two ground floor double rooms, each with space for a cot/child bed. The upstairs family suite also has room for two extra child beds/cots, ideal for larger family groups. Each suite has its own ensuite bathroom with both bath and shower. There are two large outdoor terraces upstairs and another downstairs, all with chairs and loungers.

Downstairs, the villa has an elegant dining room seating eight plus highchairs and a comfortable separate lounge with cosy sofas, TV, DVD player, IPod dock and an open fire, which is especially romantic in winter and spring. Whilst the villas don’t have kitchens, they do have pantry areas complete with tea and coffee making facilities, enough space and gear for sterilising/making up baby or toddler feeds and a minibar, which is restocked daily.


Outside, Villa Taos has its own courtyard garden with plunge pool, dining area and Berber tent, which is ideal for keeping dozing little ones out of the sun,


Please Note: Prices are based on 8 guests +cots. Extra beds for children, over and above 8 guests, are charged at £30 per night and should be added in the options and extras section of the booking form

Location Information

Villas Fawakay are set just a short 15 minute drive from the centre of Marrakech and the bustling souks with their aromatic smells, traditional food stalls, café’s and bars. Mini travellers can be enchanted by the main square, with its storytellers, snake charmers, monkeys and street sellers, whilst parents will revel in the exotic buys from quality leather bags and shoes to pretty candles, Moroccan poufs and lanterns. It is well worth using the Boys-Stones' recommended personal shopper (fee not commission based) to help navigate the winding lanes to the best sellers and fore help negotiating the best deals. to leather handbags can be found in the main square and the interweaving alley ways. The villa owners can even provide a personal shopper to show you the best shops for the best bargains.


Since shopping is rarely a highlight for younger guests, the Boys -Stones' are happy to arrange supervised activities for little ones such as donkey rides, pizza making, arts and crafts, 'Princess' spa tratments or a day trip to the local water park. Meanwhile parents can enjoy the heated pool, relax with a spa treatment, hit the shops or indulge in a cocktail on their villa terrace.


Getting There: Marrakech-Menara International Airport is just 16km (around 30 minutes drive) away and transfers can be arranged with the villa owners. Menara Airport is served by many low cost airlines, availability and prices can be found at www.skyscanner.net
