Villas in Marrakech may have once been real estate reserved for the privileged, but with a near perfect all year round climate and served by many direct low cost flights from European cities to Marrakech represents an original and safe choice for property buyers looking for villas and apartments with better value for money without compromising on luxury or lifestyle. Allied with a much lower cost of living, Marrakech has emerged as a desirable place to retire or buy a holiday home. The country enjoys low inflation and a stable economy and has not been effected by the troubles in other parts of North Africa.
Marrakech real estate expert, and partner at [Kensington Morocco](https://www.kensingtonmorocco.com/en/), Alex Peto said: I moved here from London because Marrakech offers something exotic and introduces the real culture of Africa, a place of warm hospitality and the heady sights and smells of a very different land. With close to 10,000,000 tourists a year visiting Marrakech there is much more on offer other than just the souks. I saw the vast array of Agence Immobilier en Marrakech ([click here](https://www.kensingtonmorocco.com/fr/) for the French version of their website) listing thousands of local apartments, and decided to focus on the luxury end of the market because it is so rich and diverse
Marrakech now has fifteen eighteen-hole golf courses many of which have been designed by the worlds greatest golf course architects such as Colin Montgomerie, Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin. For those who do not play golf, the Atlas Mountains are only 30 minutes from Marrakech and offers skiing in the winter months and beautiful walks all year round. Alternatively, the coastal cities of Essaouira and Oualidia are only 2.5 hours away and make for an interesting addition to ones Moroccan experience with delicious sea food, beautiful unspoiled beaches and plenty of surfing.
For children there are a multitude of water parks, camel riding and quad bike riding in the countryside or jet skiing around Lalla Takerkoust, the large reservoir in the hills just half an hour from town.
Marrakech is mecca for those who like to shop with many ending up going home with an extra suitcase and a carpet or two! There are many famous international designer brand shops, as well as the local artisan markets.
Over the past decade most of the worlds leading 5-star hotel groups have opened in and around Marrakech from the Amanjena to the Four Seasons and more recently the Mandarin Oriental and the Oberoi. With such hotels come very fine dining but with so many tourists passing through Marrakech one can find all types of cuisine at all price levels - of course the Moroccan Tajine is the most famous but if its sushi or an Italian pizza you cherish Marrakech offers it all.
In many ways, some people are starting to compare Marrakech with Monaco. There has been a notable increase of Range Rovers and Ferraris appearing on the local roads with the influx of money from Dubai, Qatar, the U.S. and China and, whilst it may not be able to boast a harbor, it certainly has a wide range of luxury facilities and entertainments to compete with the best in Europe.
