Miranda Challen spent the morning with a personal shopper who guided her to some of the best souks and boutiques
There’s no doubt that Marrakech is a shopaholic’s heaven. This vibrant metropolis is overflowing with buzzing souks, treasure-filled shops and secret boutiques to explore, selling everything from Berber rugs and leather goods to colourful slippers and exotic lamps.
Shopping in Marrakech
We provide all our clients travelling to Morocco with a list of the best places to shop, but what we really recommend is spending a morning or an afternoon with one of our top personal shoppers. We know a handful of Marrakech-based insiders with whom we will match you, depending on what you are looking for – whether it is furniture, rugs, cushions, handbags or shoes – all at the best price. I had the opportunity to experience everything that this captivating city has to offer on my recent trip.
We started our day with breakfast on the roof terrace of our suite at La Villa des Orangers. The food there is excellent and was very much required to ensure that we didn’t drop before we shopped. The temperature at that hour was pleasant and the location of the hotel meant we had a great view across the busy Medina and could watch daily life go by.
