The district of Palmeraie is a large oasis-like area of palms and old olive trees situated around 15 minutes drive outside Marrakech. It is a remote and peaceful area with wonderful views of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains, the highest range in North Africa.
There are many fine hotels and exclusive villas in the Palmeraie district. Cheryl and her X Factor boys group stayed at the luxurious Manzar al Jamil villa which has traditional charm with sophisticated contemporary design.
The Manzar al Jamil villa comes fully staffed and has landscape gardens with a large swimming pool. Guest can even request Moroccan evening entertainment if they wish. In 2009 a week long stay at the Manzar al Jamil could set you back around £12,000.
