Beautiful gardens and such an intersting story. It is a must to stop on the way to or back from the mountains, or just for an excursion out of busy Marrakesh. All you wanted to know about saffron is there. And so many other varieties of plants, trees, etc.. The plus: a barefoot walk on various types of grounds with... More

Even though the season had just ended the owner was able to demostrate how the saffron is harvested and took us round the rest of the gardens collecting samples of the herbs and fruit as we went. The refreshing saffron tea was beautiful. A lovely place to visit.

There are a couple of these Saffron places in the Ourika area but this one is a few kilometres before Ourika on the road from Marrakech and easily indicated by the big... More
