Day 2: Atlas Mountains
It's a short drive of approx. 2 hours up out of Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains and our accommodation at La Roseraie. One of the most stunning locations in the Atlas, La Roseraie is a haven away from the bustle of the cities and daily life for many. Set among 26 hectares of gardens, the name comes in part from the numerous rose gardens that bring colour to the gardens at all times of year. The gardens also contain a huge variety of plants, from olive groves to long paths of flowering bushes and citrus orchards. Its easy to wander the gardens and get lost for the day here.We have left a lot of free time in this short itinerary, so you can enjoy the space and quiet in the mountains at leisure. There is a choice of activities available in the grounds of La Roseraie which are available to families staying here. Take a dip in the pool, try a game of tennis in this spectacular location or simply enjoy the views from your private terrace.The Ouirgane valley surrounds La Roseraie, and we have included a walk around the valley to get to see some of the villages and local culture in the area. The jagged peaks of the Atlas Mountains are all around us, and we will have the time to get a great view of this wonderful setting.

Day 3: Free day at Atlas Mountains
Free day at Atlas Mountains.
Day 4: Marrakech
We make the short journey back to Marrakech, and have the rest of the day free to enjoy the city. A world away from our peace and quiet up in the mountains, Marrakech gives a very different perspective on Morocco, as we are surrounded by a city of noise, sounds, colors and smells very different to the mountain solitude.Why not spend the day wandering around Marrakech's main square, Djemaa el Fna. When the sun goes down, watch it become a fun and crazy mix of dancers, fortune tellers and even snake charmers. Why not grab a table for dinner and spend your last night together with your group over a delicious meal of local Moroccan cuisine.
