IN TANGIER AT VILLA JOSEPHINE

Arriving at Villa Josephine, I’m sporting an Orlebar Brown Bond 007 sage linen safari jacket, linen voile shirt from De Valsco, Ralph Lauren Purple Label white cotton cargo pants, Tom Ford Wilton chain loafers in zebra, Hermes Cape Cod Deux Zones watch, Lock & Co, Tuscany fedora and my fragrance is Mandini Tangier Gardenia.

After our last superb stay at Villa Josephine we simply had to return! We had a fairly full trip schedule this time around, so it was a welcome place to decompress. In fact we didn’t leave its glorious grounds for three whole days!

We had breakfast, lunch and all but one dinner served on the tremendous terraces – and even managed to have a few friends there for cocktail hour. Villa Josephine felt like our own home in Tangier. One night, we treated ourselves to dinner in the divine dining room – with after dinner drinks al fresco under the stars to bask in the beauty of the place.

The place has a flavor of the French Riviera with an African twist – Villa Josephine really is unique amongst Morocco’s maison d’hôtes. There is no other place like it in Tangier. Now with Jasper Conran opening Villa Mabrouka (the former home of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge), there might be some competition! We’ll be sure to try it on our next visit to Tangier, but suffice it to say, Villa Josephine will always be very special to us and we look forward to many more visits.

On our way home, we had one final night in Morocco – we took the high speed train to Casablanca to catch a direct flight to New York the next day – we arrived in time to pay homage to design legend Bill Wills at Rick’s Cafe – one of his last projects and certainly one of the best meals we had.
