Morocco: Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who was voted out two weeks ago, and his wife Carla are enjoying a holiday in one of the Moroccan king’s residences in Marrakesh, a local official said Tuesday.

“The residence belongs to the royal family and is located in the heart of the palm grove,” the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

“The residence where Sarkozy is recharging his batteries is generally reserved for the king’s guests,” he said. “It is very secluded, shielded from the press and the ex-president has been jogging in the palm grove.”

Sarkozy arrived last week for a private visit after handing over the presidency to Francois Hollande, who defeated him in an election run-off on May 6. The former president is expected to stay until May 31.
