Marrakesh is best visited between the months of Mid-March to the end of June and September to October when one can enjoy the long balmy sunny days of about 25°C.
Whilst staying at La Palmeraie, one can discover Marrakesh's wealth of culture. Just a 25-minute drive from the villa lies the Medina, the very heart of Marrakech's timeless and atmospheric old town. Here one can enjoy an evening stroll or explore the surrounding soukhs; which beckon as the sun starts to set. Such ambiance, where there is just so much to see, should not be missed. The easiest entry is via Jemaa El Fna, the famous main square home to storytellers, snake charmers and an Aladdin's cave of goods.
At La Palmeraie, there are various day trips that can be arranged by the owner's staff for the enjoyment of guests. In this case, the villa's chauffeur-driven 4 x 4 is used. One personal recommendation is the two hour drive to Kasba du Toubkal, where guests are taken to enjoy a spontaneous impromptu lunch or tea whilst admiring the spectacular views of the Atlas' highest peak at the foot of the mountains (4167m). As a fun alternative one can head to the beach to experience Essaouira's relaxed tranquility.
During winter months one can truly appreciate the versatility of La Palmeraie as a holiday destination. Just a 2.5 hr drive away lie the Oukaimeden range were one can rent skis and take in the stunning scenery.
Marrakech, where golf is played throughout the year, is notably home to four highly acclaimed golf courses, three of which (27 hole courses) are ideally situated 20 minutes away from the villa.
CAMEL RIDING AND QUAD BIKING

The staff at La Palmeraie, have intimate knowledge of where to go and how to get the best rates for everything from quad biking (in small or large groups) to riding camels in the desert.
