Artful Living Retreats is a unique and immersive way to travel differently and discover Morocco with a new perspective. We imagined a tour where you could explore 3 different facets of what the magical Morocco has to offer:
Discovering the Moroccan culture through the light of the vibrant and lively Marrakech,
Being creative through the inspirational artsy ocean side city Essaouira,
Finding yourself nourished by the mystical lands of Sahara Desert.
Our aim is to create a global travelling experience for women who want to be enriched and empowered. Not only a holiday, it is a life changing experience that we want to share with you, a guided journey through your new path.
Day after day, you will rediscover the purpose of your life; you will step out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself, and you will find the inspiration to renew yourself surrounded by like-minded people.
Whether you are curious, adventurous, creative, spiritual or looking for a life changing experience, enriching your self-growth, Artful Living Retreats will offer unforgettable moments, a guided journey through a new cycle of your life.
Your journey starts in Marrakech, better known as the red city. Through different activities, you will discover the heart of the Moroccan culture. Walk with us and come across secret places, mysterious scenes in between alley ways, uncover hidden gems and step into this incredible maze surrounded by colorful and lively souks in the old medina. Hear the sounds of the Koutoubia Mosque calling you, smell the robust Moroccan mint tea prepared on the bustling and busy streets, taste exotic food, admire the Moorish Arabic architecture at every step.
It is now time to pursue your self-discovery journey through the visit of Essaouira, a cinematic and artsy town on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. You will enjoy the laidback vibes and its artistic treats. Get inspired by its ancient white washed buildings, walking on its ramparts, while watching waves crashing its epic forts. The infinite blue sea, the sun kiss on your face, the wind in your hair and the salt on your lips will bring out your wild and free side.
Setting out toward your final destination, the Sahara Desert, you will take the ancient silk road to seek historical Kasbahs full of charm and history, Be amazed by high Atlas Mountain views and witness traditional berber villages. Look away and imagine endless sand dunes; it isn’t a mirage but the view of your healing space. Locals say: "Once you visit Sahara Desert, you will never be the same". Now is the right time to open up your spiritual body.
