Jardin Majorelle YSL Gardens in Marrakech

I have to share a very special garden I visited in Marrakech, Morocco.

I knew little of the Jardin Majorelle  in Marrakech other than the briefest of notions that it paid homage to Yves Saint Laurent & Pierre Berge


The gardens were created by the French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1952) in the heart of Marrakech & as an amateur botanist, he created a haven of calm & coolness in the heart of this bustling city.




It covers two and a half acres & it is an absolutely joy to visit.


In 1980, Yves Saint Laurent & Pierre Berge bought the gardens & they are an absolute joy to visit with vibrant colours, water, towering bamboo, cacti etc



Perfect views with colour & structural plants punctuating the scene ...


Beautiful reflections & details ...



The intricate details are very evident in Morocco & in Spain, how lovely are these colours?



The vibrant blues, tiles, fretwork & pot plants just set a perfect scene ... 




The cacti are so structural against the intense cobalt blue walls ...



The on site bookshop echoes this attention to detail ... 



The stunning shop with beautiful wares ...



The Vibrant colours work well under the hot, blue Moroccan sky; the whole space is so calming, a haven in the business of Marrakech.

I hope you have enjoyed this inspirational garden as much as I did. Thank you for stopping by,
