Jardin Majorelle is a stunning garden oasis in the somewhat hectic city of Marrakech. Originally owned by French artist Jacques Majorelle, the palm grove was his Marrakech residence, with an Art Deco artist’s studio painted in the renowned “Majorelle Blue”. The surrounding garden of exotic plants fell into abandon after his death in 1962 and was saved from property developers by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé in 1980, who restored it to its former glory. The colours and peaceful tranquility of the garden are a breathe of fresh air. We stopped by the courtyard café for a delicious lunch of brouiates, crispy pastry parcels stuffed with cheese, meat and vegetables, before checking out the collection of Yves Saint Laurent’s annual love posters and wandering the pathways in breezy jumpsuits in the afternoon sunshine.
