                              Year Purchased: 2003

                              About: I am a former American-born French and British trained lawyer having suffered burn-out and decided to make a serious life change

                              Why Marrakech:
                              I visited Marrakech for the first time in 2003 and fell in love with the innate generosity and warmth of its people, culture and hospitality. I was immediately seduced by the vivid colors, sensuous decor and laid-back life-style. My trip introduced me to an alternative way of life that I was to make mine. Mystic Marrakech, the Jewel perched at the gate to the Moroccan desert, is where decided to hang my hat.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                              The calm quiet atmosphere which allows me to recharge my batteries before returning to a stressful job in Switzerland. The wonderful food my little Saida prepares for me and just generally the pampering I benefit from including Turkish baths, massages and beauty treatments. Also getting out into the mountain villages or to the Atlantic coast to hike and breath some fresh air.
