Centuries before Marrakech gained its status as an exotic "must-see" destination, the fabled 'pink city' captivated travelers with its ancient walls. From the affluent to the backpacker carrying their worldly possessions, all are drawn to its allure. At the heart of the city lies Jmaa el Fna, also known as The Place of the Dead, a bustling square steeped in history. Here, amidst the vibrant atmosphere, snake charmers, storytellers, and acrobats have entertained crowds for centuries. By day, the square buzzes with henna artists, juice vendors, and water sellers clad in red robes; by night, the aroma of barbecues fills the air, creating the ambiance of the world's largest open-air restaurant.

Adjacent to 'La Place' lies Marrakech's renowned souq, Morocco's largest and one of Africa's busiest. Labyrinthine alleys brim with ornate lamps, colorful babuches, luxurious carpets, and alluring djellabas, offering a treasure trove of goods to discover. Venturing deeper into the Medina, the ancient heart of the city, reveals a world unchanged for millennia, often hidden from tourist view amidst the seven kilometers of rose-pink walls enveloping the city.

Yet, Marrakech offers more than just shopping; it promises romance, adventure, and a culinary journey through the best of Moroccan and international cuisine. Whether you seek trekking in the Atlas Mountains or immersing yourself in the city's vibrant culture, Marrakech has something to fulfill every traveler's desires.

In this vibrant and dynamic city, countless opportunities await. Here are a few ideas to help you make the most of your time in Marrakech.

'but we found it to be a peaceful oasis, surrounded by two acres of verdant gardens, planted with scented roses, jasmine and bougainvillea, and green lawns surrounding a sunlit swimming pool. The villa’s owners, Heather and Abdellatif Benhrima, imbue it with a cheerful sense of calm; Heather (who is English) oversees the delicious Moroccan meals and the quietly unobtrusive service, while her husband Abdellatif (born and bred in Marrakesh) is an expert guide to the city and beyond.'

You can never tell with holidays. Sometimes it takes days to settle in, occasionally it’s instant. 

Feeling at home and totally relaxed in Villa Dinari takes precisely 12 minutes.

The first ten involve hosts Heather and Abdellatif showing me their haven of a hotel – stylish, secluded and enchanting. 
It’s 20 minutes to the exotic craziness of Marrakech’s Medina, yet I feel as if I’m on a tropical island. 

The gardens offer peace and privacy with a blanket of olive, oleander and figs.

I loved the Villa Dinari and Heather’s hospitality – I haven’t been this relaxed in years. Next time I’ll be there for at least a week and, with Abdel’s help, visit the Atlas Mountains, sleep under the desert stars, explore the Majorelle Gardens owned by the late Yves Saint Laurent and perhaps even brave a camel ride.
