Taster Holiday in Marrakech

We’ve long admired Morocco’s rich culture and so, we’re very excited to begin our ‘Flavour of’ breaks at a private villa sitting just outside Marrakech. This taster week session is designed to show off the best of this magical city with excursions to the iconic Jardin Majorelle, famous for its purchase by the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in the 1980s, and cobalt blue buildings, Art Deco references and striking landscaping. We’ll also walk the weaving medina, browsing the bags of spices, handmade ceramics, and beautiful textiles – and even do some bartering, if you like! Back at the villa, there’s time to relax in the pool, as well as stretch out with yoga lessons, adjusted for all experience levels.

Of course, we couldn’t visit a country so known for its unique cuisine and not enjoy a cookery lesson, so you’ll also get the chance to learn from a local chef and create an authentic Moroccan delicacy yourself. A land of contrast, here, rugged mountains sit next to ornate architecture, and simple traditions are enjoyed alongside decadent meals featuring the most flavourful foods. It’s an enchanting place, full of character, that we can’t wait to explore together.
