The Marrakech/Essaouira region
Founded nearly a thousand years ago, Marrakech is Morocco's most vibrant and exotic city, with its rose-coloured buildings, wealth of monuments and labyrinthine souks (markets) set against the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. A shopaholic could spend a lifetime here, browsing through the stalls of homeware, fabrics, spices, wooden crafts, lanterns and other trinkets, and equipping an imaginary (or real) second home.
The main hub, and the point where most alleys emerge, is the huge square of Djemaa el Fna (also spelled Jma el Fnaa and other variations), where open-air BBQ stalls, nut and date vendors, orange juicers, snake charmers, story tellers and assorted touts mix with a melee of bemused tourists.
Dar Seven is in central Marrakech, close to Ben Sallah square, which is accessible by petit taxi.
The medina (old walled town) is a maze of unsigned pink alleys - getting lost is part of the experience, as is paying a child to take you back (not always successfully) to where you're staying. There are literally hundreds of riad-style hotels to choose from, ranging from backpacker haunts to 5-star luxury - and we have picked our very favourites in each price bracket.
Only 10 minutes away from the main square and the point where most alleys merge Djemaa el Fna, where open-air BBQ stalls, nut and date vendors, orange juicers, snake charmers, story tellers and assorted touts mix with a melee of bemused tourists.
