A villa is a property/house that is either detached or attached to one or more other villas and commonly set out over two or three floors. A compound villa is defined as a villa that is located within a residential compound or "neighbourhood/society". Compounds vary in size and can be anything from a handful of villas to hundreds in the much larger compounds. Renting a villa or apartment in a compound offers many benefits such as security, maintenance, swimming pool, gym, clubhouse with various facilities, children"s play area and other sporting facilities to name a few. Some compounds are gated and others have the convenience of a mini supermarket for groceries, a restaurant or even a mosque. There are compounds which are private and belong to companies offering their employees housing as part of their contract. Most international schools have residential compounds located near them and it is very easy to find good accommodation nearby for the convenience of families. There is a wide variety of compounds in Qatar that suit most budgets and have all kinds of amenities. It is worth asking the agent about any adverts you have seen and checking the amenities with them if you are looking for anything in particular, as sometimes agents do not list all the available amenities in a compound.
Al Aziziya is a district in the municipality of Al Rayyan in Qatar located on the outskirts of Doha. The area boasts plenty of green space with the presence of part of the huge 88 hectare Aspire Park (part of the Aspire zone) in the district. The rest of the park lies to the north of the district on the other side of Al Waab Street in the neighbouring district Baaya. With well-designed grounds, beautiful fountains, playgrounds for children to exhaust themselves in and many cafes to enjoy tasty beverages and snacks, this is surely a place to spend time in evenings and the weekends. There are many rare and common trees that have been carefully planted which are meticulously tended to so that visitors to the park can enjoy and relax amongst whilst appreciating the beautifully landscaped green surroundings.
Nearby is the iconic Aspire Tower also known as "The Torch" Doha which is currently the tallest landmark in Qatar and stands at 300 meters tall (980ft). The tower served as the focal point for the 15th Asian Games hosted by Qatar in December 2006. There are plenty of furnished apartments and villas to rent in Al Aziziya ready for families and couples to move into straightway with easy access to a number of international schools nearby, making it a great location to rent a home in.
