Painting in Taroudant and the Atlas Mountains
Our hotel was a converted palace within the town’s ramparts. Its gardens are luxuriant, cool and shaded and the en-suite rooms are large. The service is excellent and the whole experience is one of calmness and tranquility.
As well as painting in the hotel gardens and around the town, the holiday included some trips to the peaceful villages on the edge of the Atlas Mountains, where we observed and experienced Moroccan village life. There were plenty of varied painting subjects including the markets, gardens, architecture and people.
We dined in several local restaurants, some of them exceptional, especially chosen by our guide, Ali.
Our last day was spent at an hotel in the Atlas Mountains, with its lovely gardens and views to the mountains beyond.
