The Marrakech / Essaouira / Marrakech Region region
Unchanged since the Middle Ages, Marrakesh's solid ramparts encircle and protect its mysterious labyrinthine medina, which hides sultans' palaces, the ornate mansions of rich merchants, and some of the most colourful bazaars in the Arab world. The Djemaa el Fna square in Marrakech is an open-air theatre. By day it sports clusters of stalls selling fresh orange juice, plants, dried fruit and nuts.
By night, it fills up with snake charmers, storytellers, belly dancers, musicians and crowds of onlookers. On one side are open air BBQs, which waft delectable meat scents across the square; on the other are rooftop cafes from which you can watch the night unfold. And all around are the souks: an overwhelming array of stalls which wind their way down narrow paths, selling a fabulous selection of leather slippers, ceramics, beautiful cowhide lamps, traditional rugs and wood carvings.
Shopping here is addictive stuff. Riad Dar Raja is just a 7-minute stroll from this famous sqare and the souks. And is also close in proximity to 'Hivernage', where the majority of prestigious hotels,casinos,clubs and restaurants are to be found..The area is easily accessible by car and there is 24hr car parking nearby.
The Marrakech City / Medina area
Places to visit: Souks, Medersa ben Youssef, Dar si said, palais Bahia, Jem el fna square, Majorelle gardens and many others...
"It is the most lovely spot in the whole world." said Winston S. Churchill to Franklin D. Roosevelt about Marrakech in 1943. Its is easy to agree, as the location of this 1000 year-old city has something for everyone.
Our local Manager can arrange day trips to the fascinating Berber villages of the nearby Atlas Mountains and Ourika Valley, to the pretty seaside fishing port and beach resort of Essaouira, as well as 3 day/2 night excursions to the Sahara desert. Details on request.
