Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Relax in a Moroccan GardenMarrakesh can sometimes feel like a lot of hustle and bustle, but thankfully several green oases exist to help you reconnect with your inner calm. Many larger riads come complete with well-planted courtyard gardens, but for a hint of the spectacular, head to the Marjorelle Gardens in the Ville Nouvelle. Once owned by Yves Saint Laurent, it’s beautifully planted and watered, with an art deco villa at its heart, painted in the brightest colors imaginable—cobalt blues and acid yellows that pop in the sunshine. Offering more space are the Menara Gardens on the edge of the city, fringed by palms and with a royal pavilion and reflecting pool—perfect for picnics and late afternoon strolls.
