Villa Ezzahra


Morocco

Villa Ezzahra


Morocco

The Palmeraie of Marrakech was once the private hunting domain of The King. As a result, it has avoided many decades of potentially destructive development. Today, it is only possible to build if a property is more than two hectares, and it is not allowed to take down any of the naturally occurring palm trees.
