Le Paradis du Safran reviews
Excellent experience in all senses. The place is very lovely and the host is extremely nice. On top of the journey there is also a foot spa.

What a beautiful surprise!!! We were told about this lovely Farm-Garden-Park by readers of a magazine article, but when we arrived, we got welcomed so warmly by Christine, as if we had been friends...

This place lives up to its name and more. We were blown away by the innovation, the generosity and diversity of nature to be found in this place. The owner Christine was so welcoming. She found ways to turn the everyday and ordinary into excitement and curiosity. This is no ordinary attraction. During non-COVID times this place is very busy so be there early to have enough time to tour the place at your leisure. The tour takes around one hour's time in all. Important note: Despite repeated attempts by the owner to change the contact number on Google Maps, it always seems to revert to a mobile number with Tunisia country extension number. To call the correct Moroccan number, simply remove the 00216 from the number and replace with zero to call correctly. The number is a Moroccan mobile.
just spend a holiday in Marrakesh with my in laws. how much we all enjoyed spending the last moments of our trip in this paradise. It was the check out of our holiday since we needed to take the plane back to the Netherlands afterwards. It made us feel relaxed, in a good mood, not feeling as a day of traveling but holiday instead, and of course we felt nicely stuffed with delicious food for the rest of the day. The versatility and essence of Christine is shown in the holistic approach and the details; from the people who work at the saffran paradise being happy, the hard and daily work put into the soil, the intelligence in the irrigation, and fun and beautiful things and plants, trees, herbs allover the garden. when we visit again, we will definitely drop by
