Gardens Illustrated: Gardens of Marrakech and Taroudant

This special Moroccan garden tour offers a unique selection of 21st century, mostly private gardens, designed by some of our best-known designers. Award-winning, British designer Tom Stuart-Smith will guide you through his own creation, Le Jardin Secret in the heart of Marrakech. While in the city of Taroudant we visit a series of remarkable gardens designed by Eric Ossart and Arnaud Maurières, two French globetrotting botanists, plant hunters, and garden designers. A further highlight of the tour will be a day comprised of all things Yves Saint Laurent, including the new YSL museum, Jardin Majorelle, and a private view of the adjacent Villa Oasis where Yves Saint Laurent lived during his lifetime in Morocco. In a picture-book setting with views of the High Atlas Mountains, wonderful climate and cuisine, and great shopping, visitors will discover two warm and friendly cities steeped in history. We stay at two outstanding small hotels: guesthouse Jnane Tamsna, surrounded by its own botanically rich and captivating garden in an oasis setting; and Dar al Hossoun in the ancient town of Taroudant, an eco-friendly Riad surrounding courtyards planted with many fascinating plant species.
