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.
All meals are cooked with fresh local produce. You will be served 3 meals/day - the meals are prepared with local products and fresh bread is baked daily in a traditional earth oven. The Moroccan cuisine is a delight in itself.
Meals are served on low tables (Berber style). Fruits, mineral water, coffee & tea available.
Meals are cooked with fresh products from the terroir and accompanied by traditional bread made on the spot. Mint tea or herbal tea from the fresh garden herbs will complete the meals.
