A veritable feast for the soul and senses, the charms of Marrakesh do not lend themselves easily to words. Instead, the city’s delights must be found first-hand in its medina, one of the biggest in North Africa, against the backdrop of the 40,000 craftsman who work there. Or in the Majorelle Gardens, purchased by Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé in 1980 because it was there they found that “the colours of Matisse blend with those of nature”. Or in the alleyways lined with orange trees, infused with the scent of bay leaves and spices, the intoxicating essences that inspired local parfumier Abderrazzak Benchaâbane, whose perfumes are now archived at the famous Osmothèque de Versailles. In this enchanting setting, at the heart of a city developing economically, artistically and culturally, Emile Garcin Marrakech is proud to present a selection of luxury real estate that blends opulence with refinement and authenticity. These properties include exclusive residences with wooden ceilings nestling in tree-lined grounds, designer villas in private and secured domains, luxury modern houses in the district of La Palmeraie, and elegant riads in Essaouira renovated by renowned architects. These unique properties – each boasting state-of-the-art facilities including security systems, palm trees, heated swimming pools or “swimming corridors”, spas, hammams and gyms – are guaranteed to match even the highest expectations.
