Hello, friends! I recently discoved the charming boutique hotel, Le Jardin de Biehn in the April-May 2011 issue of Cote Sud and May issue of Elle Decoration and instantly fell in love.
Located in the heart of Fez, Morocco, Le Jardin des Biehn, is a luxurious riad that was formely the summer palace of a Moroccan Pasha which was lovingly renovated by owners Michel and Catherine Biehn, a French expat couple. Michel Biehn wears many hats, he is an interior designer, textile collector, avid traveler and author of several books about lifestyle, cuisine and culture.
Set in a large Andalusian garden, the hotel consists of nine suites, a gallery, hamman (a traditional Moroccan sauna), spa and restaurant (Fez Cafe). Each of the eclectic suites are all uniquely decorated with luxuriously rich fabrics, patterns and textures intermingled with rich Moroccan design (tiles, furniture and architecture) giving each room its own character.
Morocco is definitely on my list of dream destinations, the culture, food, textiles, architecture and scenery are so inviting..being a short plane ride away from Bamako definitely puts it high on my possible vacation spots.
