Marrakesh was our first foray in late September we stayed in a great little place 'Riad L'Orangeraie' (10 room hotel in the heart of Marrakech) before we spent October in Najac.
... above hillsides swabbed with speckled grass and thorny bush; a towering soft tangerine dune with sensual lines sculpted by raging desert storms. She is the melodic call of a masked weaver during a streaky pink sunrise; the triumphant yip-yip-yip of a spotted hyena cheering on the night. Africa is horns, trunks, spotted fur, graceful bounders, ruthless carnivores and feathers of a thousand colours. Africa is ...
... up out of the surging swells of the south Atlantic. The air is heavy with swirling marine mist. Fynbos clings to the flanks of the steep slopes. The soundscape is dominated by the thundering rhythmic crash of the surf. Frigid green water washes the sugary white shore. We scamper along the edge of the continent, peering over the dizzying cliffs to the turbulent sea. Smashed Dutch and Portuguese shipwrecks are hidden in the black volcanic reefs below. ...
... near blindness in my eye for a few days was as bad as things could get but apparently I was wrong. Step one to recovery, get to a cleaner environment, ok this I am starting to do.
The airport is the nicest and cleanest building I have been in since I arrived back on November 19th. With only 8 departure gates, the airport is quite small but inside you still have all the normal amenities of a larger airport. Since I look and feel like ****, I ...
... souk for a little bit. The souk is insane. But a good insane. I'll talk more about it in the next entry.
After the souk we had some lunch, more tanjia!! OH so good!!! Yummy lamb!
We went back to the hostel after lunch to chill for a bit, met up with another American lad, Wes, and we decided to try and find the tanneries.
With our map in hand, we set out to find the tanneries, bound and determined not to get a guide to show us, we would find it on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad de L'Orangeraie Marrakech
I've just returned from a 6 night stay at Riad L'Orangeraie and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for quality Riad accomodation in the the Medina at a sensible price.
Do,nt look any further just book it.An oasis.Perfect location .Great staff. Excellent food .Comfortable and tastefully furnished.My tip would be to save at least one evening to stay and relax and have dinner at the Riad.Also take Cyrils restaurant recommendations(and directions !!)Fondouk is excellent.
From the moment we were met at the airport by the arranged taxi driver, to the moment we were taken back, we entered a new world with our every need catered for.
We have just returned from 5 nights at the Riad L'Orangeraie which we booked after reading the reviews on this website, and I can only concur with everthing that has been written about it.
Beautiful. Tranquil Riad in the heart of the Souks
Myself and two of my friends, just recently stayed in this Riad, which in first impressions seems to be in the middle of knowhere, however it is actually in the heart of the souks. The people in the Riad are friendly and more than willing to provide for everything you want. It is such a beautiful place and so peaceful, a real escape from the bussling souks. The splash pool is enough and views from the roof terrace are stunning. Hospitible, Friendly, beautiful and a real escape in Marrakesh.
An excellent riad in a fantastic location
Have just returned from a week in Marrakech with my wife and 2 kids (12+10) We booked L'Orangerie after recommendations from tripadvisor reviewers and have yet again had a brilliant holiday. The owners Laurent and Cyril, brothers based in Monaco were great, responding to my enquiries quickly, arranging airport transport and our first night at a smaller nearby Riad Zahoun - as they were fully booked.
Great value for money
A lovely place in the old part of Marrakesh with great atmosphere. Very stylish interior design, friendly staff and big rooms. No need to go for the suites, the standard rooms are very large and stylish as well. If you plan to stay for dinner, reserve 24 hours in advance. Very close to the souks (markets). It's hard to reach by taxi, so plan in some walking. One of the best value for money riads in Marrakesh!
We recently spent four nights at the Riad de L'Orangarie and the comfort and enjoyment of our visit to the city was greatly enhanced by the riad's friendly staff. Set just on the edge of the souk, the riad is laid out with a lovely and in these cool nights, cozy dinning room, with a nice warm fireplace. We enjoyed two dinners during our stay, which were excellent and much more reasonable than some of the places that seem to cater to large groups. It is also much more romantic.
