Marrakech Medina and Palmeraie

A conversation we often have with clients goes along the lines of “I want a weekend break and would love to stay in a Riad in the Medina but I also want to relax somewhere beautiful with a garden and a large pool”.  This is the answer: 2 nights in a riad and then 2 nights in the Palmeraie  which is only 15 minutes from the city centre but a different world. It is the place where the wealthy Moroccans had their villas with large gardens and guaranteed privacy provided by swaying palm trees. It works either way round – either Medina or Palmeraie first
