Camel rides in erg chebbi 1 night in desert camp Merzouga
... evening we headed down along the cobbled alleyways past the stall holders and across the wide, currently dry, river to visit the Kasbah, which dates back to the 17th century. As we climbed the steps and wound our way up through the ksar to the top of the hill we stopped to admire the rustic buildings, some of which are still inhabited. Glad to reach the top and catch our breaths we were rewarded with sensational sweeping views back over the ksar, now ...
... prices our waiter was wearing a nice black suit and tie.
Having stayed as long as we could at the restaurant we decided to just head for the train station. On the way we realised we were actually quite close to Starbucks which was quickly deemed a much nicer place to wait out the day than the train station. Surprisingly it was one of the nicer Starbucks coffees I have had which was probably due to the fact that they had flat whites on the menu.
... sunsets, drank lots of Moroccan tea and also were starting to wind down, as it was coming to the end of our trip.
We've included a video in this one as well, however it is bare minimum footage as we lost all of our footage from the first half of the trip (including the Sahara Desert) and we are going to try get it back if we find someone in France who can help, and then we'll make another video with the retrieved footage.
At leisure today...and I say that tongue in cheek. This place is not leisurely, it is a constant bombardment of the senses from the smell of food, drains and donkeys, the sounds of bikes, and snake charmers' flutes and drums, the sights of all the shops and people, the feel of the crowds, to the taste of mint tea. Then it's back to the Riad ...

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.
