Tailor made Holidays to Morocco

Map of MoroccoFrom the fascinating imperial city of Marrakech to spectacular lunar landscapes, flat-roofed Berber towns to picturesque hillside villages, and from beautifully preserved Kasbahs to stylish and atmospheric accommodation, Morocco combines history, culture, architecture and natural beauty in one endlessly alluring short-haul destination.

Less than four hours from the UK, so perfect for both a weekend break and a longer journey of discovery, Morocco assaults the senses with the sounds, smells, sights and experiences of the place where Africa, Europe and the Middle East meet.

WHEN IN MOROCCO WHY NOT…?

Spoil yourself at a luxury retreat Luxuriate at the Domaine de la Roseraie, easily reached from Marrakech, a resort set in delightful gardens in the heart of Berber country. The 44 rooms, spread throughout the gardens, are decorated in understated traditional Moroccan style. If you can tear yourself from the spa, three swimming pools and tennis courts you can go rambling or horse riding through the High Atlas Mountains and discover Berber villages and weekly markets.

Learn to cook Moroccan cuisine Spend one morning in Marrakech discovering the secrets of the distinctive taste of Moroccan cuisine. Learn to cook traditional dishes and then enjoy what you have prepared under fig and olive trees in the garden of the cookery school.

Take a balloon flight over the High Atlas Savour the early morning air as you float over oases, Berber villages and the High Atlas Mountains. On landing have a refreshing mint tea and a stroll around one of the villages before returning to Marrakech.
