April 2015

It was a pleasure for us to spend our easter holidays with Marion and her family at their beautiful place in the country. The buildings that she and her husband built after their own construction are phenomenal and give you the feeling of living in another world. Situated between hills, Arganies, sheep, goats, donkeys and camels, it was a wonderful place to relax after the some days in the bustling streets of Marrakech. Our hosts and their housekeepers were always open for our wishes and made us great meals. We could use the pool as well as the hamam and loved to go for a walk or to just sit in one of the cosy sitting areas in their garden. Marion even gave our youngest daughter an introduction lesson in kickboxing which motivated her quite a lot!
Thank you very much to Marion and Saïd for opening your house to us and letting us take part in your lives!
