Gardens of Marrakesh

water feature, garden in Marrakech

Many of our guests that stay with us are keen to visit the famous gardens of Marrakech, like Yves Saint Laurent’s elegant Majorelle garden or the gardens and cactus displays at La Palmeraie.

For inspiration we have enjoyed leafing through the newly published book ‘Gardens of Marrakesh’ which explores twenty beautiful gardens by looking at their cultural heritage.

The Daily Mail newspaper said of the book ‘Open this volume of rich, exotic photographs of beautifully tender gardens … and you can almost taste the mint tea.’ We couldn’t agree more!

The book is in hardback and costs £20, more details here: http://www.franceslincoln.co.uk/en/C/0/Book/5063/Gardens_of_Marrakesh.html
