The Marrakech/Essaouira region
Morocco is a country where you can experience a taste of the exotic within a three- and a half hour flight from Europe. It is a country of stunning beauty, variety and is an all the year round destination that enjoys an extremely pleasant climate. It has sandy beaches to the north and west, the breathtaking Atlas Mountains, and a number of lively cities, in particular Marrakesh, also known as the Red City.
Marrakech itself is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that now offers a wide range of cafes, restaurants, night-clubs, bars, shops, cultural events and art galleries. There is also a good chance of rubbing shoulders with celebrities, given the thriving film industry and annual film festival.
However, there is one part of Marrakesh that remains unique, the old town or medina. The medina is the famous bustling maze of market streets and souks where you can share endless cups of mint tea whilst bargaining for that carpet, these Moroccan leather slippers, that Saharan jewellery, chests, kaftans, and all manner of antiques. It also contains the beating heart of Marrakesh, the Djemaa el Fna Square which is a UNESCO world heritage site and a showcase of traditional Moroccan life. This is where traditional music, dance, storytelling, eating and socialising have continued unchanged for centuries.
Monuments: Koutoubia Tower, Bahia and Badi Palaces, Ben Youssef Medersa
Museums: Dar Si Said, Marrakech Museum
Gardens:Majorelle (Yves St Laurent) Garden, Menara Gardens
Art Galleries: Matisse, Lawrence Arnott
Shops: souks in the Medina and the new town for interesting designer shops

Other activities close to the medina include; golf within a 30 minute drive, a water-park, horse-riding, camel rides.
We can also arrange for white water rafting, river tubes, cannoying, quad bikes and hot air ballooning with our partner company, Splash Morocco.
