This fabulous luxury modern villa at the heart of the Palmeraie in Marrakech on the Domaine El Majal is probably one of the most prestigious holiday houses in Marrakech.
Set in 6000 m2 of private landscaped grounds, it is the very symbol of an idyllic oasis, providing luxury, peace and discretion and 24 hour security, with services of a daily maid as well as a cook. Other 'hotel' type services are also available including a full baby-sitting or child-minding service.
The villa built in a u-shape, like a traditional Riad, comprises 4 fully air-conditioned suites all with en suite bathrooms (bath and shower) in 450m2 of space. There is also a separate 'pavillion' with 2 additional bedrooms so in total 10 to 12 guests can be accommodated.
There are many splendid terraces, some of which have views stretching to the Atlas mountains, and from which you can watch stunning sun sets or in Marrakech, the breathtaking moon rises! The terraces are furnished with high quality tech or wicker furniture, so there are no end to possibilities for eating or having a drink outside.
A lovely inner courtyard with fountains adds to a sense of serenity. The garden has miles of well watered lawns and palm trees, which are a pleasant view to behold from the pool house, outside 'living room'. The pool can be heated (not in the winter) and there are lots of sun loungers all around the pool terrace.
All rooms are decorated to a high standard with traditionally crafted doors and other artisanal furniture and hangings.

Possibility of hiring a 4x4 for trips out to the desert, the Atlas mountains and other excursions.
Appx 10 minutes' drive from 3 of Marrakech's golf courses:
Golf Amelkis, the Royal, and the Palmeraie Golf.
The Koutoubia mosque, a Marrakech landmark, surrounded by sunstruck rose gardens and distinguished by a 230-foot, pink sandstone tower.
The Place Jemaa el-Fna, the heart of the medina and the liveliest UNESCO World Heritage Site ever seen.
Incomparably seductive souks, Berber carpets, spices, silver, Berber jewellery. Ben Youssef Medersa, one of the Muslim world's great educational centres.
The recently restored, domed Qubba, a Medieval water station, and the Museum of Marrakech, which puts contemporary art in the frame of a late 19th century Moroccan palace.
South of the Place Jemaa el-Fna (only appx 15 minutes drive), there are palaces, gardens, and museums, such as Dar Si Said, dedicated to the arts and folk crafts of Morocco. On twisting alleyways nearby is Dar Tiskiwin, an elegant townhouse, open to the public as a museum and full of Moroccan and sub-Saharan wonders collected by Bert Flint, a Dutch expatriate.
The Place Jemaa el-Fna - Marrakech is always a little bit of everything: djellabas and babouches, bright colours, energy, heat. Once you've wandered around the stalls, gorged on all the mouthwatering food and watched everything on the square, it's time to retreat to one of the many cafes and watch the goings-on from a distance.
In terms of views, though not of food, the best are the rooftop cafes. From here you can see the entire square of Jemaa el Fna: the smoky and brightly lit food stalls are the centre, but circles of locals form all around the square watching storytellers and actors, and around the edges are the juice stalls selling fresh orange juice.
On the northern side are the souks - full of anything you could possibly want to buy, and lots of things you definitely don't! There are tourists aplenty in Jemaa el-Fna and it's tempting to dismiss it all as a commercial show, but the stories are all in Arabic and Berber and plenty of locals come here. The monkeys, snake charmers and fortune tellers seem purely for the benefit of tourists though and you might find one evening here is enough - although most visitors come back night after night.
WHERE TO EAT
Dar Moha, 81 Dar el Bacha, 38-64-00, set in a garden around a pool, and Dar Zellij, 1 Kaasour Sidi Ben Slimane, 38-26-27, in a fastidiously renovated 17th century mansion with carved cedar ceilings and hand-cut zellij tile, specialise in fine, traditional Moroccan fare.

Le Pavillon, 47 Derb Zaouia, 38-70-40, and Le Foundouk, 55 El Moukef Souk Hal Fassi Kat Bennahid, 37-81-90, serve French food and wine. Both are in the heart of the medina. Dinner about €25.
