Marrakech is an intoxicating destination for all the senses, and the city and its surroundings are also home to a number of remarkable gardens. In the company of expert horticulturist Kirsty Fergusson, we shall explore some of the finest – from the famous Jardins Majorelle created by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge, to several private gardens which are not normally open to the public, as well as a day in the magnificent Atlas Mountains. Late Spring and early Autumn are perfect for enjoying some warm Moroccan sunshine.

Included Hotels


Jardins De La Medina
Marrakech, Morocco,

The discreet entrance door and reception hall give no clue to the delightful courtyard gardens of this charming hotel. Created by combining a number of private houses, the architect has taken great trouble to preserve the character of the original buildings.
