Marrakech is a magical city. The pink and turquoise walls and buildings shimmer like a mirage, and the shady tiled courtyards and gently-splashing fountains soothe the senses. In the medina, the smell of the heaped, exotic spices and grilling meat is all-pervasive, and the vibrant colors and perpetual hubbub are almost a physical assault. The city has many moods, and you will explore them all, on foot, from a horse-drawn caleche or lolling on the cushions of the rooftop garden. Prepare to be enchanted, and leave lots of space in your suitcase. RiadlOrangeraie is located in the Mouassine district, in the very heart of the Marrakech medina.
