Fodor's Expert Review Dar Zemora

72, rue el Aandalib, Ennakhil, just off road to Fez, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

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, rose gardens, terraces, and swimming pool. The house has a huge sitting room and library, and plenty of comfy corners for reading or playing board games in both summer and winter. The outdoor veranda lounge is the perfect place to relax with a drink before dinner. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor with views of the garden. The spacious suites have private terraces, cozy fireplaces, and sitting areas that are tastefully furnished with a mix of Moroccan and Indonesian elements. 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.
