Marrakesh

Five Nights Marrakesh

If Morocco's 'pink city' has always been a travel destination on your mind and you're wondering how to maximize your visit, or perhaps you've already tasted Marrakesh and you want to travel deeper into your Marrakesh experience in this fast-evolving city and taste just some of the famous hotels and Riads, fashion houses, five-star restaurants, admire art, architecture and old world charm and chaos, please register your interest below.
 
Near one thousand year old red walls surround the historic Medina, with monumental gates leading through to a warren of winding alleys to vibrant souks, markets and artisan workshops selling fragrant spices, leather-ware, jewellry, Berber carpets, spices, fabrics, lamps, pottery and more. The centrepiece is Jemaa el-Fnaa, a bustling market place square that hosts storytellers, musicians and performers in what is an unforgettable nightly spectacle. The lavish El Badi, Bahia and Royal Palaces flank the kasbah, each wonderful examples of Berber design and craft. Also out here are the spectacular gardens of Yves Saint Lauren’s Jardin Majorelle. 

While getting lost among the jumble of alleys and bazaars may be an essential part of Marrakesh’s charm for many, our expert private guides can be on hand to lead you to the most authentic hidden boutiques, finest craftspeople and exciting new galleries while giving you a local’s perspective of this wonderful city.

 

I regularly visit Marrakesh, and from Marrakesh I travel for day trips to the majestic Atlas Mountains and to the rugged, windswept coast at Essaouira.

 DAY 3
After breakfast, you will take to the road, to Essaouira (the old Portuguese port originally known as Old Mogador) exploring the whitewashed-walled city built on the edge of the sea. The photographer in you will love Essaouira. You will eat a fresh fish lunch by the port among the old blue fishing boats or at a local restaurant. There will e ample time for you to walk among the artisans busy in their workshops and discovering the charming narrow streets of this famous port city.
 
On your return, keep an eye out for the goats up the Argan trees and hear the story of Argan Oil and even get to taste some. It is one of the most nutrient dense culinary oils and its the reason why all Moroccan women look 10 years younger than their actual age!  For wine lovers there is the possibility of lunch at a winery on the way instead of the fish lunch at Essaouira.

For tile lovers visit a famous tile factory of a couple who came to Marrakesh for a holiday and stayed. They are the owners and designers of some of the most amazing tiles you can imagine. Their tiles are now transported around the world.
 
Later in the day there will be time for shopping. I've chosen only the best for you, so leave plenty of room in your suitcases for treasures. Plan time for a return visit to the Medina and Souks for bargain hunting and sunset at El Jemel Square to experience the snake charmers and the vibrant colors and the hustle and bustle of ancient Morocco.

Kasbah Tamadot supports the women of the surrounding villages in all sorts of programs including crafts, cooking skills and education under the project by the Eve Branson Foundation. If you would like to visit some of these villages and meet the women, and make some purchases, this can be arranged.

Sunset drinks and a last dinner with all the traditions of Morocco.
