The unpretentious charms of this country villa will ease your guilt about staying in the Palmery and possibly seeing less of Marrakesh. The English-style garden is a delight (complete with croquet lawn), and in-season bouquets from the rose garden adorn the house. Service is attentive, and for once design isn't too over-the-top. The restaurant serves an excellent six-course Moroccan tasting menu on alternate nights. For complete privacy or family stays, the self-contained
pool pavilion has two bedrooms, a shared lounge, and private pool.
