Area & Experiences
Just a half an hour drive from Marrakesh, the Ourika valley epitomises the allure of southern Morocco. Driving through a landscape of rocky hills cut through by a river, you’ll see pretty Berber villages, isolated farms and a view of the High Atlas Mountains. From Marrakesh, following the canal, take the Ourika road. When you get to a school, the Villa Abou surrounded by fields will appear.
Our nearby experiences
Dinners out in the desert
Set off over the red dunes in search of a little oasis lost amid the arid expanses of Agafay. Here you’ll find an ecolodge surrounded by rich greenery, valiantly defying the drought. At sunset, dinner is served in a traditional nomadic tent, featuring products freshly picked from the gardens. Gnawa musicians, fire-eaters and acrobats take turns to entertain the guests, against a splendid backdrop of olive groves and the endless ochre landscape.
Marrakesh in a side-car
Embark upon your own bespoke private tour of Marrakech and the surrounding region in a mode of transport beamed in from another age: authentic Ural sidecars as used by the red army. Your guide for the day is a French ex-pat who will introduce you to his favourite hidden treasures, sharing his infectious passion for his adopted city.
Breakfast in the sky
As the sun creeps over the horizon, take to the skies for a special breakfast served hundreds of metres off the ground. Tuck into the feast prepared by our expert pastry chef, as the hot air balloon soars towards the Atlas Mountains and over the majestic desert in the golden light of the morning.
