Only a short flight from Europe and served by several low-cost airlines, Marrakech is an easily accessible and very exotic holiday destination. As well as offering a wealth of attractions, a fascinating culture and a wide range of activities, Marrakech acts as a hub for travel to other world-class Moroccan places of interest. Why not consider extending your Marrakech holiday to combine it with one or two other fascinating destinations to create your own twin or triple-centre Moroccan holiday?
Visible from Marrakech in winter months, the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas Mountains are just an hour’s drive away and offer spectacular scenery, dramatic hillside villages, superb walking and a distinctive Berber culture. Within an easy three hour drive of the ‘Red City’ is Essaouira – an ancient fortified Atlantic town with a Portuguese influence and ancient medina. Further afield, the golden sands of the Sahara Desert can be reached in a day’s drive.
We’ve taken time to personally source, inspect and partner with suitable private rental properties in Essaouira and the High Atlas Mountains to offer you an equivalent rental experience to that of Riad Africa. We can also arrange private transfers to your chosen destination. So whether you prefer to stay for a few days in Riad Africa or perhaps a week, take a look at some of our Moroccan holiday ideas – you might just be tempted to extend your trip and see a bit more of Morocco!
