Favourite Destinations (Morocco)
Breathe in the atmosphere in Marrakesh
If you enjoy the buzz of a busy city and the hustle and bustle of a good market, Marrakesh would make an excellent choice for your Morocco accommodation. The best place in Marrakech is definitely the Djemaa el-Fna, a large turbulent marketplace with snake charmers, tooth pullers, acrobats, and lots of delicious food. The Koutoubia, a mosque and Marrakech's most famous landmark, is a very remarkable sight, too. Why not book a holiday rental in Morocco close to this impressive mosque? Another great experience in Marrakesh is to get lost in the extensive souks of the city. In these souks you can find everything from colourful Berber carpets, “babouche“ shoes, all kinds of spices, Hookahs and lots of other things typical of Morocco. You will definitely be mesmerised by all the different sensations triggered by a stroll through these marketplaces.
Make a trip to the beach in Tangier
You could also spend your holidays in Tangier, in the North of Morocco. This region is a melting pot of African, Spanish and French culture, as it is situated just south of the Spanish region of Andalusia. If you head to the coast here you'll be met with both the Atlantic Ocean to the West and the Mediterranean to the East. Take a stroll along the beach front, drink a mint tea, visit the “casa barata” or visit the Hercules Caves just outside of Tangier. If, however, you're keen on water sports then Essaouira may be a better beach location for you, with strong winds coming from the Altantic making it ideal for windsurfers and kiteboarders.
Morocco: Further inspiration
Visit the 'spiritual heart' of Morocco
If you can't get enough of Moroccan culture, you simply must visit the former capital of Fès, one of the most complete Medieval cities in the world. There's so much to see in the city, and it's not far from the old imperial Meknes and the incredible Roman ruins of Volubilis. During your stay in Morocco villas in Fès you'll catch a glimpse of the daily procession of locals entering the Zaouia Moulay Idriss II, a shrine and tomb dedicated to the founder of the city. Be sure to visit the Medina (Old Fez), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the biggest car-free urban area in the world. Here you'll find plenty of shops and souks around – many of the stalls have been run by the same families for generations, and the impressive craftsmanship involved just shows what the city has to offer.
Take in the cosmopolitan life of Casablanca
Besides being the setting of the famous film of the same name, the city of Casablanca is also an excellent setting for your Morocco accommodation. As a very cosmopolitan city, Casablanca is a fairly westernised place compared to the rest of Morocco. Home to one of the largest mosques in the world, the Hassan II Mosque, as well as the Cathedral of Sacre C'ur, which no longer functions as a place of worship, Casablanca offers many cultural institutions worth visiting. This city also has a stunning coastline with a great view of the Atlantic, so you can enjoy the city life and a trip to the beach simultaneously while staying in a villa in Casablanca.
