Dar Albar - from £4,047/week
As you approach this property from the front, it gives away none of its magical secrets; but step in and you’re in a Moroccan-style wonderland.
Carved from the living rock on a hillside overlooking the ocean, this naturally cool villa will enchant you with its cascade of multi-level storeys.
Each has ocean vistas, as well as tantalising views of the infinity pool and gardens laid out for you below like a magic carpet of vivid blues and greens.
And indoors are the alluring curves of domes and arches, fretted window-shades and exotic tiling – an Aladdin’s cave of relaxation and pleasure!

To the front of the property, a large gated entrance provides access to a drive area with parking for two cars.
The grand domed-roof foyer entrance leads to the open-plan dining room and lounge, with doors leading to the garden and pool area outside.
The villa has satellite TV and DVD player (with a selection of films), plus sound docking stations in the living area and lower level.
On the ground floor is a double bedroom with a separate bathroom.
The stairs down to the middle level lead to two further double bedrooms, (both with en-suite facilities ), one being the master suite with a sitting area, TV, Jacuzzi bath and balcony.
Further stairs lead to the lower level, where there is another double master suite, with access to the outside terrace and garden. On this level, there is a further double bedroom with en suite bathroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a breakfast table area, hob/stove, fridge/freezer, laundry facilities and a Nespresso coffee machine.
The property is kept naturally cool in the hot summer months due to it being carved into rock and the thick construction of walls within the property so there is no need for air conditioning.
