With our partner, Ciel d’Afrique, we offer both private and shared hot air balloon flights in the silent blue sky, where you can truly appreciate the beautiful colours and textures of the Moroccan terrain below. Ciel d’Afrique has been developing its operations for some 28 years in a rural area with local people, helping to improve living standards in an arid and challenging environment. By flying with Ciel d’Afrique, you will be helping to improve the lives of these villagers through health care, children's education and the development of local infrastructure.
With friends or family, for a weekend or longer stay, immerse yourself in the traditional life of a Moroccan house. Enjoy its private pool, shaded by huge banana trees, and savour a candlelit dinner on the patio of your private riad. Guests have two spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, a large terrace for enjoying breakfast under Marrakesh’s blue skies, and a living room with fireplace for relaxing on cooler winter evenings.
"Journey through one of the oldest Eastern customs by discovering our traditional hammam. Accompanied by a "Kessala", experience the ritual of exfoliation with black eucalyptus-scented soap, with the aid of a Kessa glove. Relax on the hot marble, wrapped in orange blossom foam to awaken the senses. Finally, the Ghassoul mask will finish this trip through time. This stone from the Middle Atlas gives skin an intense softness thanks to its secret rosewater blend. You will be cocooned and transported to your tender childhood memories".
"In the historical and cultural centre of Marrakesh, near the famous Jemaa El Fna square, two orange trees frame the discreet front door of a traditional riad. Though it appears mysterious, let the dream become reality... Enter this oasis of calm and coolness, relax and relish a mint tea, Moroccan pastries, or a cigar. Enjoy breakfast beneath the pergola in the garden, lunch in the shade of the orange trees, or a candlelit dinner beside the pool. Every visit to the Villa des Orangers is an ode to the beauty of the senses and the mind, with service on a par with Moroccan hospitality".
"Take a day trip to seek out Berber culture. A wonderfully hospitable village will welcome you to share its thousand-year-old traditions. Learn a beginner's guide to cooking, and discover the flavours and the infinite landscapes stretching up the plateaux of the Atlas Mountains. Discover the village and the traditional rammed earth houses, and take a guided tour of the canyon and neighbouring valleys at the foot of the mountains. These are the ingredients for an experience in the heart of the great Moroccan outdoors."
In this museum designed by Studio KO architectural firm, the curves and straight lines of the façades closely recall the shapes of couture pieces designed by Yves Saint-Laurent. Between the pea coat, Mondrian dress, tuxedo, safari jackets, or evening dresses, we get lost in this temple of elegance where the most iconic pieces of the couturier are jewels of haute-couture and ready-to-wear. A must-see place to discover the master's work, his inspirations and his genius!
Let yourself be charmed by the endless swarm of the city's most emblematic square. Between snake charmers, musicians and traveling stalls, the excitement springs forth as soon as night falls. Then enter the medina and its maze of alleys, let yourself be jostled by carts of fresh mint or cilantro and enter the small shops that unveil their treasures before savoring gazelle horns and mint tea in a coffee shop. Marrakech...haunting and so seductive!
First and foremost, this blue Majorelle, recognizable among all. Dazzling, striking, sublime. Then on 1 hectare, exotic plants galore, fountains that “babble,” and delicately maintained paths where the traveler happily loses himself. In this place drawn from poetry and romance, time stands still and we simply stroll along, ignoring the urban commotion nearby. A timeless moment that calls for meditation and contemplation. A must for any stay in Marrakech!
