El Majal Palmeraie Villa Mansour is a delightful villa in spacious gardens within one of the most prestigious gated private domains in the Palmeraie, the El Majal Resort. This villa offers exceptional comfort and lots of space, decorated in soothing colours with a blend of Moroccan and European styles. A covered terrace overlooking the grounds with swaying palms and flowering shrubs is a perfect spot for lunch or a moonlit dinner under the stars. Work up an appetite beforehand with a game of tennis on the domain's tennis court.
El Majal Palmeraie Villa Mansour is located on the plains to the north east of Marrakech, with the breathtaking Atlas Mountains to the south east providing a stunning backdrop. It offers a welcome respite from the bustling city but is still within easy reach of the old city Medina for an active day's sightseeing; visit the magical Jemaa el Fna square as the sun sets and the square comes alive with musicians, snake charmers and food tents; browse the Souks and Kasbah, or walk around the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque.
There are many modes of transport available; a ride in a caleche (horse drawn carriage) around the city walls, a camel ride in Agrab, Berber gateway to the Atlas mountains, or even quad biking outside the city. Or drive into the Atlas mountains for a day's hiking, or out to the coast for a day on the beach.
