We loved staying at Les Jardins d'Issil, Our visit was a mid winter one - to brief you a little:-
Les Jardins are about 20 minutes drive from Marrakech (airport side) and about 40 minutes from the Oukaimeden ski resort in the other direction. In mid winter, the pool is chilly - I swam every day - but in a wet suit ! The tents are supplied with an adequate heater/air conditioner unit as we found elsewhere in Morocco. We turned this off for total silence after going to bed - others have commented on cockerels and the distant calls to prayer which can be heard in the early morning - but these are not sounds I dislike. In winter daytime the weather is often sunny, rising to about 22 degrees. Our tent had a little 'sun trap' terrace on the afternoon sunny side, and we spent considerable time in the sun by the pool in the afternoon.
I had a hire car which meant that day trips in either direction were easy(ish), but you have to concentrate, as the traffic comes from all directions. We particularly liked the contrast between the 'madness' of Marrakesh and the peaceful haven of Les Jardins. The hosts are very French, very charming, very laid back. We enjoyed playing cards in the games room by the bar, we enjoyed breakfasts on the terrace, and we particularly enjoyed our evening Tagine meals in this beautiful setting.
I think the effort this couple have put into creating the gardens has really paid off - our photo's of the pool and the gardens with the snow-capped Atlas in the background are breathtaking. I look forward to returning in a future year to see the gardens mature.
