Marrakech Palmery & Surrounds

A holiday in the Marrakech Palmery is ideal for visitors to Morocco who want to sample the delights of the bustle of Marrakech Medina, but be based in the peace, beauty and slightly cooler environs of an oasis or the countryside. We offer a selected few exceptional options in the Marrakech Palmery and other nearby rural areas. 

Overview

The Palmery and Surrounds

Marrakech Palmery (Palmerie or Palmeraie) lies on the north east edge of the medina and covers around 12,000 hectares. The heart of the Palmery is around 20 minutes' drive from the Djemaa el Fna - the focul point in the medina.

According to folklore an invading Almohad army in the 12th century camped by the oasis and their discarded date stones have resulted in around 150,000 palm trees ("ayniwen") seen here now. Today it is occupied by luxurious residences and hotels, and offers calm, space and tranquility away from the bustle of the medina.

Away from the Palmery there are a few other exceptional places to stay within 30 minutes' drive from the medina, allowing visitors other options for a high level of comfort and peace, with easy access to the numerous attractions of the medina.

Location

Marrakech lies in the heart of Morocco just north of the High Atlas mountains around 2/3 rds of the way down the country.

It has an international airport less than 30 minutes from the Palmery, which is the most popular access point to Morocco for overseas visitors, and is well connected to other places of interest by the excellent rail network and (generally) good roads.

Visitors to Marrakech may wish to combine their trip with a visit to:

  • the Atlantic coast, either at Essaouira, the pretty beach, coastal medina and fishing village around 2.5 hours west, or Oualidia, the peaceful coastal village and lagoon around 3.5 hours' drive north west;
  • the cities of the north, including the fascinating Imperial cities of Rabat, Meknes and Fez - all accessible by train around 3.5 hours to 9 hours journey;
  • the beautiful High Atlas mountains less than an hour's drive south; and
  • Skoura, the oasis town en route ti the desert around 5 hours' journey south east (the sand dunes of the Sahara are around 9 hours from Marrakech).

The Medina of Marrakech is around 20 minute's drive from the Palmery, see Marrakech Medina.
