Winter Sun in Marrakech

A peaceful and stylish hideaway in a green corner of Marrakech. For my birthday, Ross booked a 4-night winter getaway to Marrakech.  It’s the first holiday we have booked through Secret Escapes and it has been amazing.  Les Cinq Djellabas in Marrakech gives you the best of two worlds. The first being a stay in […]

It is a marvel of human engineering and construction, and its sheer size and scale rivals any structure built within the last few hundred years. It’s construction, though, has always been the subject […]
