A boutique hotel / catered luxury chalet

The Farmhouse is much more than just another Alpine chalet-hotel in Morzine. The property, made up of three buildings, is the oldest in Morzine and has been renovated with the greatest care to create a Morzine manor house of exceptional charm and character. Located in the peaceful old town of Morzine we offer our guests the holiday they want, taken at their pace, all year round.


Our bar is at the heart of The Farmhouse and, with the adjoining sitting room, offers the perfect retreat after a day on the slopes. Dark wooden beams, unique slate floors mined from the mountains around Morzine, open fires, comfortable furniture and a large range of drinks await!

A Special Morzine Restaurant

Join us in The Farmhouse restaurant for a communal dining experience and a truly international quality menu. After canapés in the bar, guests eat in our atmospheric dining room around a long communal table lit by candelabras and oil lamps. Our restaurant is open to all.

A family owned business - their story

Victoria Villas is a family owned and run business. It all started in 2013 when our love of travel, design, and hospitality  brought us to the beautiful and magical island of Bali.  We built our first villa to live in, taking great care as we always do, in the location, the design of the building, and the interior décor.  This project was an absolute blast, and deeply fulfilling fun for the whole family.  An idea was sparked.  Our backgrounds of business and hospitality blended, and our baby Victoria Villas was born. Since then, we have acquired and designed 8 villas, each one uniquely exotic.  Our team now consists of nearly 20 beautiful members, each one a welcome addition into our extended island family. 



The Pikala Bikes Foundation

Marrakech by bike to give another look, go further, at another pace. The idea came from the Netherlands and bears the name of Pikala Bikes. The concept is twofold … Purely touristic, it is a bike for rent, mountain bike, tandem or cargo bike to visit the city and its surroundings. But Pikala Bikes is also a social foundation. Anchored in the life of Marrakech, it offers some young people the opportunity to train as a guide, bicycle mechanic. She gives courses in road safety, bicycle learning and encourages young people to create their own project around cycling.

Education & environment

Cycling as a medium to educate, raise awareness and put local youth to work … A great initiative. Especially since the approach is also environmental, advocating a mode of smooth travel … A project to repatriate old bikes from the Netherlands to Marrakech has also emerged. Retired in Morocco, bicycles are then used in social projects revolving around cycling. The idea is complete and I would like to create a custom tour to offer Dar Kawa customers. An approach to follow.

A couscous in the shade of the patio

Every Friday, Dar Kawa welcomes to its table the residents of a few days as travelers passing through Marrakech. If the reservation is necessary, everyone can enjoy a moment in the riad the time of a homemade couscous prepared by our cook Saïda. Around this traditional Moroccan dish concocted with care, the sweetness of life of the place is shared in community table or more intimate, in the patio.

A menu of tradition and season

The cuisine responds to the pure Moroccan tradition but also to the rhythm of the seasons … Thus, the smoothie that starts the meal is prepared with local fruits. Follow the couscous, a dessert and mint tea. Mineral or sparkling water also accompany the meal. A simple and tasty menu that I like to share with the hosts of these ephemeral tables when I am available. So would you like to join us next Friday and discover Dar Kawa from the inside?
