Pay a visit to the Jardin Majorelle
Visit the stunning garden of Jardin Majorelle also known as Villa Oasis to see a botanical paradise of flora and fauna. Famous fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé bought the villa and garden to preserve the vision of landscape painter, Jacques Majorelle who was the original owner. Since the garden opened in 1924 the plant species has grown to over 300 types of plant taken rom five continents. You’ll be able to enjoy the fragrant aroma, vibrant colours and striking patterns of the landscape. As well as the thriving nature the garden consists of several ponds, the Yves Saint Laurent memorial and paved seating areas where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of wildlife, like the resident turtles.
See the contrasting electric blue villa with its art deco structure, which was once used as Majorelle’s studio but is now home to a Berber Art Museum. Pay a visit to the museum to see exhibitions of artefacts, ancient textiles, musical instruments and a mirrored chamber containing enamelled jewels and extravagant jewellery.
