Book yourself onto a restorative Flavours Pilates holiday in Morocco from 3-10 November, and you’ll feel relaxed and ready for the craziness of Christmas on your return.
Just 3½ hours from London, Marrakech feels a world away from wintery Britain at this time of year. The sun shines, people are friendly, and the food is wonderful. Accommodation and Pilates classes are in a spacious architect-designed villa on the outskirts of Marrakech. Here, views are of the snow-peaked Atlas Mountains and clear blue skies above; rooms are airy and peaceful, and there’s a swimming pool and gardens to relax in. Typical November temperatures are around 20C by day.
You’ll do daily Pilates sessions with a qualified UK body-control Pilates teacher, who will adapt the classes to suit each participant, whatever your level. Practising Pilates every day will leave you feeling supple and relaxed. On this small-group holiday everyone has an individual en-suite room (or you can share with a partner or friend, if you prefer). But the beauty of Flavours is that if you’re travelling solo, there are never any single supplements.
Where you're going to stay
The villa is a relaxing oasis of tranquillity just 30 minutes South of the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh. Set within 16 acres of olive groves and beautifully planted gardens, the property offers spectacular views of the snow-capped Atlas mountains. Blending vintage and contemporary design with a truly Moroccan flavour, this stunning property with 8 en-suite bedrooms, swimming pool, clay tennis court and fully equipped hammam and spa is just the perfect place to relax and unwind. The property has Wi-Fi internet throughout and all rooms are air conditioned.
All food, wine, accommodation, transfers and day-trips are included in the single price. Flavours can advise on flights, including regional options. You’ll have the chance to explore the colourful souks of Marrakech with our guide. You might even want to pick up eclectic Christmas presents there – from slippers, silks and spices to souvenirs. Hand-painted Moroccan pottery is a particularly lovely take-home memory of this fabulous country. Make sure you leave space in your suitcase!
Food is cooked by our private chef, but we’ll take you out to specially-chosen restaurants to try delicious tagines, and other local specialities. All dietary requirements can be catered for – just let Flavours know what you require.
