Morocco is a country where you can experience a taste of the exotic and it is within a three- and a half hour flight from most European airports. 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 Marrakech, also known as the Red City. Marrakech is host to the International Fim Festival each December and a number of other festivals throughout the year including the Marrakech Marathon in January.
However, there is one part of Marrakech that remains unique, the old town or medina. The medina is the famous bustling maze of market streets and alleyways 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 Marrakech, the Djemaa el Fnaa square which is a showcase of traditional Moroccan life. This is where traditional music, dance, storytelling, eating and socialising have continued unchanged for centuries. It is now a designated World Heritage site and properties near to this location are highly prized.

We took a petit taxi from the airport and then a porter took our bags on his trolley to the Riad. The Riad is in the heart of the Medina (old town) which is not accessible by cars, but is full of intriguing shops and stalls as well as people bikes and carts. We were also very impressed by how clean the whole ... more
