Morocco revels in spectacular diversity, stretching from its coast to the very edge of the Sahara and to the foothills of the Atlas Mountains.
Between the mountains and Morocco’s Atlantic coast lie fertile plains and in the extreme south, there are breathtaking gorges. The unique landscape explains Morocco’s unusual climate, which brings near Arctic conditions to its mountains and highest plateau, yet warmer weather in the resort areas, perfect to enjoy your luxury holiday in Morocco.
Indefinably romantic and wonderfully exotic, Marrakech in the shadow of the Atlas Mountains, has been wooing foreign travellers to holidays to Morocco for centuries. A city of immense beauty famed for its markets and festivals you will find good quality Moroccan leatherwear, carpets, pottery, jewellery, brassware and woodwork. The handicrafts are bound to catch your eye in the markets of Marrakech and the souq here, the best in Morocco, is an exotic and exciting spectacle filled with fascinating sounds and aromas.
Visit the city ramparts which are more than six miles long or the romantic Menara gardens with their poolside Menza and pavilion.
Further north, the resort of Skhirat enjoys a beautiful coastal setting and is an ideal location to explore Rabat, with its famous Hassan Tower and Royal Palace and the city of Casablanca.
Discover the fascinating history of Al Badi Palace, the vitality of Djema el Fna with its musicians, acrobats and snake charmers, or simply watch and absorb the combination of influences that are uniquely Morocco.
