After breakfast, recovery of the car and free time for a ride in the palm grove of Marrakech, afternoon departure for Ouirgane, far from the chaos of the city crossing the plain of Haouz and the valley N'Fis wadi. The landscape is harsh, but full of unexpected patches of green. The simple mountain villages with thatched roof use local stone and earth and blend perfectly into the landscap. Arrive in a beautiful Riad, free dinner and overnight stay.
After breakfast, we will visit the remains of the Almohade mosque (12th century), now a national monument. A little older than the famous Koutoubia, it allows us to imagine the interior of this, which cannot be visited. It continues through hairpin bends and impressive views to the Tizi 'n Test pass (2,092 m), and then descends towards the Souss plateau, where Taroudant is located. Surrounded by crenellated walls like Marrakech, it contains an animated and colorful medina. Free dinner and overnight in Riad.

Free day for the discovery of the city. Coastal and Atlantic, Essaouira, under the influence of the trade winds, it enjoys a mild and temperate climate in all seasons. The old city, enclosed within its massive walls, offers an atmosphere that has attracted many European artists: the play of light through narrow streets, white and blue facades, small cafes with pleasant terraces, famous for the processing of tuya burl ... Colorful and lively, the fishing port lives to the rhythm of its outdoor restaurants, the arrival of trawlers and artisans who build traditional wooden fishing boats. In the south, miles of virgin beach invite to long, invigorating walks. Overnight in Riad.
Time dedicated to the beach and relaxation. Return to Marrakech through the Chiadma plain and the town of Chichaoua. Overnight at the hotel. Car delivery.
