How to use your time…

We are happy to give advice on how best to use your time in Morocco to plan the perfect holiday. Marrakech or the desert? the Atlas Mountains or the coast?…or combine all of them!

Most of the flights go into Marrakech and so this is a great place to start off. No trip to Morocco is complete without staying in a Marrakech Riad.   These are converted merchants’ houses built around a courtyard and make wonderful boutique hotels. Expect to pay from £60-100 per night B&B for a room for two and you’ll be impressed with the quality. As well as the riads there are wonderful boutique hotels and villas with beautiful gardens in Rural Marrakech and only 30 minutes away you are in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains with its Kasbahs and retreats.

Our most loved destination is Essaouira a couple of hours west of Marrakech on the coast. There is more to see and do here than anywhere else in Morocco (camel treks, watersports, cooking lessons…) and the town is one of Morocco’s prettiest with its souks, ramparts and abundance of cafes and restaurants.  Many visitors prefer to do there shopping in Essaouira as it is more laid back than Marrakech

You can’t think of Morocco without an image of a camel sailing through the sands and for many a trip to the Sahara is the highlight of a Morocco Holiday. It is a fantastic 3 or 4 day trip from Marrakech over the Atlas Mountains and in to the desert and we strongly recommend a night in a desert camp under the stars. The Sahara can also be combined with a longer trip taking the cities and the coast, and the best of all includes Fes with its historic souks and the Roman ruins of Volubilis nearby – The Grand Tour.

With so much to see it is important you plan your time carefully.  Scroll down the page to view our interactive map and have a look at our Morocco itineraries page for ideas or better still give us a call for a chat.
