Hidden Eden in Morocco

The special contacts we have with Morocco, mean we can offer those individuals who are interested in this wonderful destination, a unique and special way to discover a country which is geographically close, yet remains exotic and breathtaking.

During our many trips to Morocco, we have managed to form a wide network of friendships and contacts so that now, we can offer you the chance to taste the magic of the Orient and the delights of Marrakesh.

The splendor of this centuries old city is reflected in its architectural riches, with many different monuments that take inspiration from ancient Grenada.
To make your holiday a truly unique experience, you will live like the local inhabitants of Marrakesh… staying in ryads (family palaces built around enclosed gardens) hidden in the depths of the Medina (the old fortified city).

Many of these palaces, including the one where you will be staying, have just been restored by highly skilled decorators. Elegant and refined, these homes harmoniously combine the best of both the Orient and the Western world.
The exemplary restoration of the Kaïss ryad involved combining traditional materials such as tadelakt, zelliges and marble with exceptional good taste. Here, everything has been designed to delight and flatter both the eye and the spirit.
The accommodation rooms encircle the central patio. Located in the middle are fragrant orange blossom trees that stretch their branches over wonderful marble fountains. The terrace has been fitted out with authentic Kaid tents… the perfect place to savor a mint tea in the balmy evening air, after a visit to the local Turkish baths. Outside, a thousand exotic images jostle for space in the city’s winding streets and the air fills with a host of magical scents and colors as Marrakesh prepares for the night.
During your stay in this timeless city, you will visit one palace after another and be introduced to Islamic art by an expert guide. If you wish, you can also learn the authentic way to use spices and combine Mediterranean flavors… tagines, keftas, pastilla, gazelle horn and couscous will no longer be a mystery to you. We also offer the chance to see the more contemporary face of Marrakesh, with a visit to the art galleries of various art studios run by artists that live in Marrakesh during the winter season, tucked away in the winding lanes of the Medina.

Golf lovers can live out their passion for this sport on the numerous spectacular courses located around Marrakesh.
During the week, you will discover the magic of Essaouira. Built on a rocky peninsula, the former city of Mogador located 175 km from Marrakesh will take your breath away… elegant architecture, a quality local crafts industry, peaceful atmosphere and of course La Villa Maroc. This is certainly one of the most charming hotels in Africa, where we will stay for 2 days and which includes a celebration dinner on the last night.
