Property and local area description
New air conditioned luxury apartment beside huge pool
This new fully air conditioned apartment has a very large bedroom with a superking size double bed, mahogany fitted cupboards and a chest of drawers. There is also a couch, which can fold out to provide an extra single bed. The window overlooks the huge pool and flower beds. Next door is the bathroom, with bath+shower, washbasin, bidet and lavatory.
The separate kitchen is equipped with quality china for 6 people and everything you could need for cooking - including a garlic squeezer and recipe book for inspiration! There is a small private outdoor courtyard, which is useful for drying clothes.
Go down the corridor, on the right is is another shower room/toilet , and on the left is the salon, with television, DVD, radio CD player and games and books. There are two Moroccan-style sofas, which can be used as extra beds if required (bedding is all provided). The dining table and chairs are also in this room. The large terrace is reached through double glass doors from here.
There is a full size wooden cot and a high chair available on request.
This ground floor apartment is situated ( opens off and internal corridor) at the corner of the swimming pool, so the pool is only a few steps from the front door. There are sunloungers by the pool, or relax in the privacy of your own large terrace.
Three minutes walk away is a small supermarket, you can buy essentials like fresh milk, suncream or biscuits. This is a gated complex, there is always someone on duty at the gate 24hrs a day. There is a welcoming office in the aparthotel block a few minutes from the flat for information about the site (extra familymembers could use an aparthotel room for a group holiday?). There are tennis courts and two other pools for residant's use.
The other side of the road is the enchanting little Kabilla Marina, to the left of which stretch miles of wide golden beaches. It has an excellent restaurant, where you can sip a cold drink and watch the yachts come and go.
This is the best stretch of Mediterranean Morocco, even the king has his summer palace just down the road! The golden beaches stretch for miles and the water of the warm sea is crystal clear.
In one direction is the large and glamorous Marina Smirr, with sophisticated restaurants, shops and water sports and a wonderful thalassotherapby centre in a major hotel. Also nearby is a Water Park with immense tubes to slide down and fun- fair attractions.
4km in the other direction is M'Diq, a fascinating seaside town where the fishing boats still bring back fresh fish daily. There are restaurants and cafes and many small street stalls where you can sit and watch the world go by while eating a simple but delicous meal of fresh fish or lamb kebab. Fresh food straight from the grower can be bought in the market, there are also banks and pharmacist and small shops.
A couple of km further on is Cabo Negro, with the renowned Royal Golf Course- where you can hire clubs, if necessary- and play on their 18 holes beautiful links. Club Med, down the road, can be enjoyed on a day ticket, taking their sailing boats and pedalos onto the crystal clear waters. There is an excellent horse riding stables at La Ferma neaby - go for an evening gallop along the sea, or perhaps the children would like a riding lesson at their model farm.
At Martil, a large seaside resort 3km further along the beach, there is a summer festival mid June to August, camel rides, jugglers, a great deal of fun.
Tetouan, the regional capital 25 minutes from Kabilla, has a medina that is so untouched it is a designated World Heritage Area - what Marrakesch used to be like before all the tourists! We can recomend an excellent qualified guiede to show you all the hidden places. Outside the Medina the white city reflects its Spanish heritage.
A couple of hours away is the blue mountain village of Chefchaoun, which has been voted the top place to visit in all Morocco. The drive through the hills is just magical, especially in the spring when flowers carpet the hillsides.
Visit Tangier, a town with layers of fascinating history, Assilah, town of the arts -or the Spanish enclave of Ceuta for a completly different culture, huge nautical water park, duty free shopping and night time tapas bars. From Ceuta you could take a day trip to Gibraltar - it is only a 3/4 hour trip over the med - or r a helcopter ride to Malaga for some Spanish paella!
The possiblities are endless, you will never get bored in this fascinating and vibrant area with its friendly welcoming people. Whether is is leisure and relaxing, with a huge choice of different foods to experience, birdwatching (this area is where the migrating birds pass on their way from Africa to Europe) exploring the exotic and historic Moroccan culture, or a combination of all, this is the place to be!
