MARRAKESH - DAR DONAB, A WEEKEND GET-AWAY

Do you sometimes want to live above your budget?
Me too :)

But I have found quite a comfortable solution to it!
Weekend get-aways. Pick a spot, go there and spend some hours, half a day or maybe you might be even creative enough to turn it into a whole day!
So let me  share with you my last week get-away spending some Sunday hours at the wonderful inner garden by the pool of the Donab Palace in Marrakesh. When you are in Marrakesh, spending some hours at Donab is enough as the whole DAR BACHA area is asking to get discovered. It is in a total contrast with the hustle and bustle of the souks.
Trendy artistic little shops, clean and oh so quite streets, lovely guest houses and very accessible by car.
In my first post I want to share the nice green inner garden. So easy it is to combine some trees with lots of pottery. Using mirrors on the main axes and different sizes on pots and plants creates depth into the garden. Notice also that the difference in the color of the green enforces this depth. Overall the maximum planting area was nowhere more the 1,20 m but you feel it is overwhelming and with all the birds nesting it is a real oasis.

My program for tomorrow involves a beach picnic so that I will finally get some tan after living here for 2 years :). Less impressive but very relaxing! 

Enjoy your weekend too and keep me posted on the creative things you come up with!
