Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Set on the breezy third floor these flats have terraces overlooking the gardens, pool and nature reserve- you can see the sea from the side of no 14 terrace. The other side they look over the fields and mountains.
I bought two flats, then made one larger by joining the two back bedrooms into one. By arrangement , extra sleeping accommodation can be added to the large room- cots, a folding bed, or floor mattresses
In the one bedroom flat I put bunk beds into the dining alcove.
There is a securely locked door between the two apartments, but this can be unlocked and the whole flat used as one.
This is a great way of enjoying a family holiday, with two sitting rooms and two balconies you can enjoy each other's company but also have different activities without disturbing each other.

The Tangier/Rif Mountains region
The Meditteranean coast of Morocco is a secret kept by Moroccans! Golden sands stretch for miles, the sea is clear and clean and full of delicious fish that are sold in local markets and fish restaurants far below the Spanish prices. Moroccans flock there in mid summer when it is full of life and amusements - water park, camel rides , trinket sellers,magicians, camel rides, beaches swept daily and promenades full of happy holiday families.
Outside those six weeks it is much quieter, bird watchers find it amazing when the birds migrate from Africa to Europe, but for non experts it is fun just watching the storks nesting on high places. The seaside is clean and organised, the mountains feel unchanged for centuries with shepherds guarding the sheep.
People are free to walk anywhere and Moroccans are friendly and interested in meeting visitors. tip- dress conservatively away from swimming areas out of respect for Moroccan culture. Most Moroccans do not drink alcohol, but hotels have bars for non Muslims, larger restaurants provide alcohol,it can be bought i then supermarkets at prices a bit lower than Britain.
There is a thalassotherapy centre not far away where you c an go for a day's pampering and all beauty treatments. Or go for a Moroccan massage at the natural remedies centre in Tetouan.
The nearest town, five minutes drive, is M'diq, which has many restaurants and a couple of hotels, one with a night club. It is a great place for an informal meal of fish or meat kebabs on the pavement cafes, with a green salad and a cold drink for very low prices. Separate cafes sell cakes and coffee, ot there much larger ones overlooking the beach where you can sit on the first floor and watch the fishing boats.
Marina Smirr, is further down the coast and there you can arrange scuba diving and other water sports. Near there is th water park, full of tubes and splashes and other fairground activities.
Tetouan is a white town, it reflects its Spanish heritage in the modern part. In the centre is the ancient Medina, it remains unchanged, unlike Marakech, full of winding streets and markets, bread ovens, hammams and tiny shops. It is a World Heritage site and absolutely fascinating to visit- we can give you the name of a fully qualified guide who will take you to the places that interest you and tell you the history- and not try to make you buy anything you do not want to! Of course if you do want anything, he knows the best places.
