“Thank you so much! We had a wonderful time here in Marrakech with so many fun family activities but the best times were here in the villa. This is a magical house and we created so many magical family memories – under the tent, under the trees and under the bright blue Moroccan winter skies. We will be back for sure!! A special thanks to the amazing and tireless staff and cooking team. Dar El Sadaka is the best ‘stayart’ in town.”

“I was part of a retreat group that stayed at Dar El Sadaka for a week and it was truly an extraordinary experience. From the beauty of the physical surroundings to the awe-inspiring art to the luxuriousness of the suites to the attentiveness of the staff to the delectable food to the jaw-dropping special events – it was all magnificent. I’ve travelled quite a lot and have never had an experience that was so consistently magical from start to finish. Huge congratulations and thanks to all. It was a week I will always remember.”

“Nous avons passé un merveilleux moment. La décoration des chambres est soignée, confortable et originale. On est très bien reçu, le personnel est charmant et très efficace. La nourriture très bonne, le parc, les œuvres d’art, la décoration des tables au moment des repas… Tout est mis en place pour nous faire voyager au pays des rêves …. Nous avons adoré notre séjour !!”
Gabrielle V. – Octobre 2022
“I hosted a birthday party event over four days at Dar El Sadaka and our experience from arrival to departure was outstanding. The villa is beautiful with every room unique, so much so that all the guests wanted to tour every room to see for themselves. The grounds are spectacular, enormous pool, tennis court, table tennis, beautiful gardens and the incredible sculpture park.
We experienced different and unique events for lunch and dinner every day, all arranged seamlessly by the staff. The evening events in particular were spectacular, no photographs could do them justice. The staff are all very friendly and professional, on hand at all times and made our stay perfect. A particular mention should be made of the wonderful food, no dish repeated over the four days and everything delicious.
Thank you to everyone at Dar El Sadaka for making our stay perfect, it is nearly impossible for any other venue to compare!”
Tim S. – October 2022
“The setting and villa are out of this world – truly magical – a wonderful oasis! To add to this the delicious food from the Chef as the excellent service made our visit really special as one that neither my wife nor our guests will forget! Thank you to all for the lovely experience and memories that each of us take away from here.”
Anuj C. – September 2022
“Dar El Sadaka is a magical place which takes you out of the world during your whole stay.
The equipment of the villa is fabulous. The pool in particular is very big and can allow 10/12 people to enjoy being in the water at the same time with the marvellous garden around.
The experience of the internal and external decoration is an endless artistic experience. The animals, the reference to the giant and upside-down houses are fabulous but there is also an incredible attention to decoration details. Every room is a different but stunning haven of beauty.
The staff is always ready to help, very efficient, visibly enjoying their work, very flexible, extremely kind and professional. The food is another fabulous part of the experience. Very natural and tasty. Definitely the best meals we had during our stay.
Much more than a holiday, a stay at Dar El Sadaka is a unique and magical experience. Warmest and deepest thanks to all the team!!”
Yves M. – July 2022

“Thank you to the entire staff for being so incredibly kind, welcoming and helpful. Much like the artist would have intended, every detail was wonderfully executed. From the dinner table decorations with garden greens, to the replenishing of chocolates in the room each day, to the change of setting and ambiance for each feast. This home is so unique and special, it couldn’t be more perfect. It was the perfect place to spend the week with my friends.”
Andy with Pierre and friends from France, US, Mexico, Germany, Belgium – November 2021

The place is beautifully designed and creates a feeling of home while also being genuinely inspiring, thanks to the art installations placed all across the grounds.

“Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve en famille, 20 personnes de 4 à 88 ans, tous émerveillés par la maison où chaque regard laisse place à l’imagination. Tout est bien fait, une équipe merveilleuse, attentive à chacun d’entre nous, une cheffe d’exception et des souvenirs pour notre vie entière.”
Famille O. – Décembre 2020
“A couple of weeks after booking we were approached by a member of the Dar El Sadaka to prepare every detail of our 8-night stay. Together with her we went over meals, drinks, parties at the different spots on the property, private excursions and tours for our party of 17 people. No detail was missed. Dar El Sadaka is not just a rental villa but an experience that was able to surpass any expectation that we had.”
Johan V. – March 2020
“Dar El Sadaka is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. We were blown away by the creativity and luxury that this villa offers. The experiences that the amazing staff created for us are an absolute must. Dining in a giant house or underneath a thousand candles will definitely never be forgotten.”

Florence B. – Juin 2019
“I recently organized my birthday at Dar El Sadaka. We were around 10 couples with some kids. There is nothing much to say except that everything was perfect. Dar El Sadaka is not only a unique villa, but it also comes with a large variety of lunch and dinner options, a great chef and a both discrete and very warm staff. We could feel that everyone was dedicated to make our stay memorable. Food was great, service was excellent, and the sets of the two customized diners we had at the villa were simply breathtaking. The hardest part was to come back home… Hope to be back soon.”
Nicolas B. – May 2019
“Have we landed in paradise? Everything about our stay was lovely. The rooms, pool, garden, staff, food… all beyond expectation! The art installed in every corner was the true gift that provides the magic at Dar El Sadaka. Merci!”
Britt W. – March 2019
“Dar El Sadaka is like nowhere on Earth.
The property is quirky and sublime, the artistic nature with its larger than live animal sculptures warms the heart and awakes the senses. Each room is cozy and creative. The layout of each public space is welcoming, you really don’t want to leave but continue to take it all in. The pool is perfect, as well as the music — which the staff was kind enough to let us use.
The staff is next level. They are kind and humble. Whatever it is you need, they are there for you.
And the food and drinks… out of this world. The daily fresh yogurt and honey during the morning were some of my favorite bites. The dinner with the 10 million candles is heavenly. I’ve never experienced something so touching on a vacation. It felt personal, like each candle was full of love.
I try to explain this property to friends back in Chicago, IL, USA, but it’s truly a destination you have to live and breathe… and eat and drink up!
I can’t wait to go back!”
Anthony B. – March 2019
“What an exceptional property – innovative, creative, immaculately maintained with exquisite service. There was care and flair applied to everything from the individually designed and fragranced rooms to the delicious food and gorgeous table settings. An extraordinary experience and perfect for celebrating a special occasion.”
Sally P. – October 2018
“What an absolute treat! It is hard to describe in adequate words quite how amazing Dar El Sadaka is. From the warm greeting party upon arrival to the impeccable, professional service throughout our stay, all was exceptional. Nothing was too much for the staff. Helpful, cheerful and extremely friendly throughout. Details such as the immaculate table place-settings painstakingly made by hand with flowers and tiny pieces of greenery, and on one night with glitter, were beyond exquisite. If there were star ratings above 5* this villa would be several stars over the top level.”
Jenny G. – October 2018
“Une parenthèse magique, un lieu féerique, enchanté. Une ambiance inspirante, un endroit de rêve, une bulle en dehors du temps. Un régal pour les sens. Merci pour l’accueil et ce moment.”

“Hemos estados toda la semana alojados en Dar El Sadaka, propiedad del artista francés Jean-François Fourtou. Es una villa con más de 10 mil hectáreas, un completo remanso de paz y de belleza. Está rodeada de obras de arte del artista, con habitaciones espectaculares. El trato has sido maravilloso y hemos tenido unas comidas y cenas maravillosas en diferentes localizaciones de la villa. Lo recomiendo 100% para poder ir con familias.”
