Marrakech – Details

Testimonial From Lynn, Los Angeles, CA

This is a trip not to be missed. Reserve your spot!

The cooking classes were hands-on and fun for all included. I learned a lot about spices and the true meaning of Couscous and Tagines!

The activities that were scheduled for us were truly beyond amazing… Mountains, Deserts, Medinas, Kasbahs, Sunsets, Camels, Waterfalls, City Tour, Souks. We experienced the culture on so many levels.

The Riad where we were staying was a serene oasis offering accommodations beyond any expectation I may have conjured up.

Barbara and Tasha planned a perfect excursion. Brava to them.  

Testimonial from Lorie, Tortonto, Canada

Thank you to Tasha and Barb for a spectacular trip to exotic Marrakech! You showed us the best of Marrakech and surrounding areas and the cooking classes were informative and delicious. The Riad was beautiful, elegant, and knowing that it was just our group staying there made us feel more comfortable.  The excursions to the desert and to the mountains were fantastic and I can scratch riding a camel off of my bucket list! We always felt safe and you equipped us with the do’s and don’ts of the country before we left. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who likes adventure, luxury, great food and making new friends!

 Testimonial from Monica, Loumarin, France

It was such a wonderful trip and I am so glad that I signed up at the last moment. The two of you are the perfect team and the mixture of fun, adventure, luxury and relaxation was perfect. The program was so well thought out and it all seemed so effortless but I know the effort and special care that went into it. Un très grand merci.

Marrakech – Dates:  March 13-19, 2024

During your time in Marrakech, you will experience international cuisine and local culture in the company of like-minded travelers.  Your accommodations will be in an 8 bedroom riad, in the middle of the Medina. Once you step inside, the riad becomes the perfect escape from the madness of the Medina of Marrakech.  We will be taking over the riad just for our group. You will be welcomed with warmth, care and attention by our hosts Giorgina and Massimo, who have shaped the riad le Clos des Arts into the ideal location for intimate retreats. Your breakfast will be served daily on the roof top terrace. A typical Moroccan breakfast is an assortment of local breads and pastries, jams, fresh fruit, yogurt. Eggs can also be ordered and prepared any way you prefer.

Yoga can be practiced in several spaces, on the roof terrace, by the fireplace or in the courtyard. Morning yoga will be flow yoga, the evening yoga will be more restorative.
