As you may already know, we are actively involved in several school projects in Morocco. Our biggest achievement to date is a school we built from scratch in Ait Bouguemez Valley in the Atlas. The school now hosts 20 children, which is a fantastic result.

All of this would never happen without our lovely clients and their donations towards the project. So thank you so much for making it possible. And also a big thank you to the local village community who donated many hours of manual labour.

Other projects in Morocco

Since 2011 Fleewinter has been raising money to help schools in the coastal region to the south of Essaouira. It is a small project managed part time by volunteers in the UK and Morocco so every pound and dirham raised goes directly to the programme.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of Fleewinter and Rebali Riads clients and our first project was the renovation of the primary school inland from Rebali Riads. This was a particularly rewarding project as it was the school that some of the Rebali staff and their families had attended and what a great way to thank them for looking after our clients so well.

The project was started in 2011 as soon as funds started coming in, and was completed in mid 2012. We repaired the leaking roof and the windows,added a toilet and washroom and then gave everything a coat of paint. Outside the ground was cleared and a perimeter wall was added to make a simple play area.

We finished by providing each of the pupils with a bag and some basic materials for the start of the new term in September 2012.  In 2013 we managed we took on our second school and underwent a programme of updating to provide improved sanitation and plumbing and a re-decoration.

A big thank you to all the donations from our clients and also to Mohamed El Mansouri for managing the projects. Whilst we recognise the limitations of our programme, we passionately believe that education is fundamental to the long term future of developing countries and any small assistance is a step in the right direction.

Fleewinter is now excited to announce that our latest school project is underway – the renovation and re-decoration of a local school in Adaghas (a small village 20km inland from Sidi Kaouki). The progress so far has been amazing!

The start and finish for most Morocco Holidays. Highlights are the souks in the old Medina, the main square in the evening, the Majorelle gardens and the historical sites. You should definitely stay in a Marrakech Riad for at least a few nights but also some beautiful villas and hotels on the edge of town in rural Marrakech. Click for suggested riads More
Essaouira is our favourite at all times of year. Probably the prettiest coastal town in Morocco and loads to see and do. Great camel trekking, horse-riding, surfing kite/windsurfing, cooking lessons, lovely medina (more relaxing shopping than Marrakech). Also great places to stay in town and in the village click below for suggestions More
High Atlas Mountains
Incredibly close to Marrakech but a world apart, the Atlas mountains are an essential visit. Go for a day trip (trekking or driving tour), or stay in one of the beautiful kasbahs perched on a hilltop to relax and soak up the views More
Sahara Desert
The massive dunes of the Sahara should be on anyone's "bucket list" and it is easy to do a trip into the desert from Marrakech, Fes or the coast with a bit of planning More
Ait Ben Haddou
One of the most famous sights in Morocco, Ait Ben Haddou is a rock fortress on the south side of the Atlas. Always a good stopping point on our desert tours and a must for the photo album More
The Gorges
The Todra and Dades Gorges maybe a little over-hyped but certainly worth a stop on the way to Mezourga - part of our Desert & Gorges Tour More
A pretty walled town within easy reach of Agadir (so a lot of day trippers from the package hotels) but also a great place for a night's stop between the desert and the coast More
Having been re-built after and earthquake 50 years ago it doesn't have as much charm as other Moroccan cities but the beach and climate are lovely More
Oualidia Lagoon
A small seaside town built up around a pretty estuary and lagoon. Home to La Sultana, the best coastal hotel in Morocco and can easily be combined with a visit to Marrakech and Essaouira More
Less well known as a tourist destination but with recently introduced direct flights from the UK it is an interesting city where you can see the modern Morocco alongside the rivermouth Kasbah and the medina More
The biggest city in Morocco and an industrial sprawl. We generally advise not stopping there and even if flying to Casablanca head North to Fes/Rabat or south to Marrakech/Essaouira. If you are passing through it is worth visiting the spectacular seafront mosque.
The town of Chefchaouen is beautifully situated on a mountainside, often referred to as the blue pearl due to its shimmering blue buildings. It's worth learning the history behind the choice of this color, which contributed to the town's fame, making it one of the most photographed places in Morocco. In Chefchaouen, explore the picturesque medina with winding alleys and the Kasbah with its lush gardens, serving as a haven of freshness in the city center. Chefchaouen is a paradise for walkers, not only because of its most beautiful streets and alleys, which create an unreal impression but also due to the hiking trails around the city. Besides the Old Town, it's worth visiting the main square, Uta el Hamman, with numerous cafes, and seeing the 15th-century El Adamaa Masjid mosque in white-orange colors with its characteristic octagonal minaret. Chefchaouen is an excellent choice for a one-day trip or a relaxing overnight stay. More
Fes makes for a fabulous long weekend or as part of our "Grand Tour". The highlight is the medina which most people prefer to Marrakech, partly as it is on a hill you are much more aware of the geography. Also, do a day trip to the Roman ruins at Volubilis and ask about a night or two in the village of Bhalil More
The second good dune area of Morocco is Erg Chebbi by Merzouga - easier to get to (no 4x4 needed) and whilst the dunes are stunning we prefer Erg Cheggaga for a proper desert experience. More
