Experience multi-faceted Morocco from the sights and sounds of Marrakech, the peace and beauty of the Atlas Mountains to the laid-back charms of coastal Essaouira.
Your first experience of Morocco on this holiday will be exploring the fascinating city of Marrakech with your expert guide. It might only be a 4 hour flight away from the UK, but it is a world away in terms of its culture, ambience, architecture, food ... well, everything really. This is what makes it so exotic and enticing! You're staying in a gorgeous riad with several courtyards, a pool, large rooftop terrace and superb spa.
In the nearby Atlas Mountains the rugged scenery is stunning, and the wide open spaces and tranquility are a contrast to busy Marrakech. You're staying in a traditional and very charming old kasbah, with a lovely terrace and its own hammam (steam bath) in the garden. Your local guide will take you on hikes from here, and you can ask for these to be as easy or challenging as you wish.
From here it's pure relaxation, as you journey to the coastal resort of Essaouira. It's an attractive walled town with a busy working harbour and lots of craft studios, as well as wide, windswept beaches. In the cooler months, brisk walks along the beach or the ramparts will blow away the cobwebs, while in summer it's hot, and the wind from the Atlantic is welcome and refreshing. Your hotel adds a touch of luxury to your stay, with its rooftop pool and terrace and beautiful courtyard.
Busy city scenes, breathtaking mountain views and miles of sandy beaches - you'll be left with many images and memories to cherish from this holiday.
