The Marrakech/Essaouira region
Marrakech is well known for being a place of exotic vibrancy unlike any other destination so close to Europe.
From the minute you leave the airport all your senses are bombarded with sights, sounds, smells that imprint themselves in your mind so that one visit is never enough.
The climate is hot by day, perfect for sitting on a terrace watching the constantly changing scene infront of you.
There is something to interest everyone, with monuments and places of great architectural interest, unique gardens created bt Jaques Majorel and restored in.....by Yves St Laurent; for the energetic there are quad bike excursions, golf courses, camel riding; for the less energetic there are hammans and beauty treatments and places like plage rouge with enormous pool, endless sunbeds and constant waiter service not to mention shopping and simply people watching.
For the foodies, a huge variety of eating venues from the not to be missed stalls in the Jma el Fna, the tucked away restaurants frequented by locals and tourists alike to the finedining to be found in some of the larger riads and restaurants outside the city walls.M is the venue for the international film festival and the gnawa music festival in Essaoiura. not to be missed
Marrakech is found inland and is in the unique position of being in the middle of the Atlas mountains, the Atlantic coast, something for everyone....skiing, sun one minute, snow the next and back for supper, day trip to essaouira, surfing and seafood.
inland exploring and camping trips to the desert, so much available
