What’s Not Included in This Package

Location

 

Bab Zouina is an ode to nature.
The workshop will take place in Bab Zouina, a beautiful traditional  Moroccan villa situated in the Ourika Valley (30 km from Marrakesh) in a  magnificent property surrounded by olive trees.
Far from urban stress, Bab Zouina has kept an authentic and serene spirit, respectful of the environment.
The main house is ecologically built with cut stone and the new  buildings with natural mud bricks. The material used is entirely  traditional: tadellakt on the wall, zellij on the floor and cedar and  acacia for the woodwork.
The estate is full of terraces and peaceful places to recharge your  batteries. The botanical and aromatic gardens surrounding the property  give the place a poetic charm and invite to a gentle meditation.
The amazing Swedish artist and landscape designer, Catharina von  Unge, conceived and designed the ornamental garden surrounding the  property. She managed to combine British aesthetic taste with rusticity  and simplicity of the place.
With the Mexican corner and its incredible varieties of cactuses,  Catharinadares hints at the Majorelle garden by Yves Saint Laurent and  the neighboring garden by André Heller.

Karim Zein
As a kid I was born in Beirut, I then studied in Lebanon and Switzerland. After 20 years working in the environment protection and development field (travelling to most Arab countries and some African countries), I have chosen, in 2012, to launch an eco-tourism project in the Ourika valley (30 km away from Marrakesh, Morocco), Bab Zouina (yoga, nature & retreat). I love hiking in the mountains, playing tennis and enjoy travelling & discovering new places and new cultures.
