Mimi Calpe was built in the 1860s by French and British architects. It was the vacation home of an influential Jewish family from Tangier, who lived in the residential district of Marshan. The house was the scene of remarkable receptions for the elite of Europe and Morocco.

Particularly well preserved, as far as its original architecture is concerned, it is surrounded by a century-old garden, which beautiful plants backdrop an ancient Jewish cemetery. It is part of the historical heritage of Tangier and was given a second life with our recent renovation.

The property is composed of several buildings. It has four bedrooms and two 2-bedroom suites. Each bedroom is arranged in accordance with the original decoration and furnishing, with the preservation of the woodworks, floors and stuccos of the olden days.

Villa Mimi Calpe



Its Napoleon III architecture resembles that of the beautiful villas of the French Riviera, of the banks of Italy’s greatest lakes, and of the Spanish Riviera. In all likelihood, its original decoration was designed by Christopher Dresser, a very much in vogue decorator of Queen Victoria’s court. He is said to have contributed towards the decoration of the library, which was transformed into a dining room a few decades later. One of its original tapestries is still preserved in this area today, with its Japanese and Inca inspiration.

The house is equipped with a 15-by-3-meter swimming pool, set for splashing and making a few rounds. Sunbathing is also very mush welcome around the swimming pool.

The luxuriant gardens of the house are surrounded by several reserved spots, to have lunch for example. They also offer a magnificent view of the Bay of Tangier and of the Strait of Gibraltar.

Our guests have access to several lounges (including a piano room), with books, board games, a fireplace, and much more.
