All the ingredients are fresh and bought on the day. If you wish Nadia will also teach you Moroccan cooking as she prepares your meals for you. We have found this very popular with many of our guests as they not only learn to cook Moroccan food but also enjoy home cooked traditional meals.


The Marrakech/Essaouira region

Marrakech has the most exuberant marketplace in the world, the Jamaa el Fna. A designated UNESCO World Heritage site and virtually unchanged since medieval times, both locals and foreigners congregate every afternoon to be enchanted by snake charmers, story tellers, musicians and acrobats. In the evening the whole square becomes one enchanting and exotic food fare with numerous food vendors tempting the visitor with freshly cooked Moroccan delights.

in addition, Marrakech also has the largest traditional market (souk) in Morocco where you can spend the day bargaining for traditional Moroccan handicrafts,

Marrakech City

Marrakech is full of culture and history Amongst the many places to see are

- The Bahia Palace a 19th Century Politicians Mansion with its stunning architecture,

-The Koutoubia Mosque tower,

- The beautiful Marjorelle Gardens with its lily ponds, cacti, stunning pavilion and art museum,

- The Marrakech Museum of Moroccan Art and Sculpture'

All of these site are a short taxi ride from the Gueliz where the house is located. Gueliz, is the perfect location, being just outside of the old walled city to relax amongst its gentile cafes, fashionable shops and gastronomic restaurants. A day in the Medina and you will really appreciate the peace and quiet of the Villa Zainab.
