Villa Mandarine, Rabat, Morocco
The Villa Mandarine has been the property of a French family for several generations and has been lovingly transformed by the owners into a charming, sunlit villa, which is surrounded by 2 hectares of orange groves. The Villa is located about 15 minutes drive from the centre of Rabat and a few minutes from the Royal Golf. The gardens are a wonderful place to wander and relax, with flowers blooming on every corner and lemon and grapefruit trees dispersed amongst the Seville oranges.

The restaurant, created in the style of an aquarium with huge windows looking out onto the lush green of the gardens, is decorated in the rich red of Marrakesh and has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
