Three words: Private Berber Cook – no, there is no need to read on, just go to the following link and book the most obscenely luxurious digs you’re ever likely to get this side of Tutankhamen’s century.
Not enough? Well perhaps the private Hammam, may take your fancy. In this Moroccan speciality steam bath you can be pummelled to your heart's content by trained masseurs, while thinking about all the tapestried rugs you’ll be bringing home to decorate your house with.
The Dar Musique, Marrakech in the Mouassine area of the medina, close to the King's Palace, mixes original features and rich local fabrics with modern European ornaments and huge street-artist paintings. With four airy bedrooms, sleeping eight – each room is filled with plush Moroccan carpets, antique chests and with gorgeous en-suite bathrooms – which open out on to a central, open-roofed courtyard with two fountains.
Mint tea on the terrace anyone? Or would you rather a dip in the pool?
The whole house costs only £300 per night/£1,000 per week, including breakfast, Darmusique.
And to maintain the luxurious tone of the holiday, nip in to Marrakech from Gatwick or Manchester with EasyJet from £70 return, EasyJet.
