exotic marrakesh

shopping marrakesh

shopping in the industrial estate and then onto lunch at le zinc -a french  bistro style restaurant with daily specials and also serves alcohol…always check if they do… especially after shopping up a storm for ceramics, linen, interiors and lighting.  dinner at pepe nero. we got slightly lost on our walk but we always managed to find another sign just as we got totally confused! this is an old riad that has been converted into a restaurant. lots of rooms with small intimate seating areas and also larger main areas that are great for people watching. this is a mainly italian menu which is a nice change. we added majorelle garden cactus garden… formally owned by the artist jacque majorelle then saved by yves saint laurent and pierre berge. colorful with  loads of  yves klein international blue..a vist to the shop is a must..stunning silk and linen clothes, jewellery and rugs i really could of bought everything in the shop!!!!  in the heart of the medina  is the maison de la photographie gallery and cafe. there are some amazing photographs and the documented history of both the medina and of morroco it’s worth the time spent in this little gallery.  just down from the gallery is the beautiful le foundouk restaurant and bar.  we booked into a morrocan tangine cooking class at our sister riad swian …the highlight was sitting up on the terrace and enjoying the company as well as the food!
