Holiday rentals and lettings in Marrakech
Marrakech, where history and culture intertwine with beautiful architecture and bright colours, a veritable feast for the senses that you have to experience at least once in this life. Medina is without doubt the number one place to stay in Marrakech if it is your first time in the city. A series of winding alleys and narrow streets, it is the heart and soul of historic Marrakech. To the south of the centre is Chrifia. Ideal for families or anyone who seeks the relative tranquillity of suburban Marrakech, it is quiet and completely safe but just a short hop from the city centre and well connected via public transport.Stay in a traditional Moroccan riad property
The houses in Marrakech are simply spectacular and the prices eye watering, but in a good way! You can find many riad properties in and around the town, which are traditional Moroccan houses, with two or more stories around an Andalusian-style courtyard that houses a fountain. Expect a swimming pool set in landscaped gardens among olive trees and bougainvilliers, and in some properties a housemaid who cleans and cooks your Moroccan meals throughout your stay! Smaller groups can choose from one of many flats in the town, many of which have a communal pool.

The area and getting around
With the coming of budget airlines to Marrakech in the last few years, it has become a leading international tourist destination. The city lies near the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert, and is an ideal location for venturing to the desert and mountains. It is also just a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic Coast, with its chill vibes and legendary surf.Hang out in Marrakech’s diverse districts
Marrakech is divided into two parts: the historic Medina and the modern European district. Medina is packed with intertwining narrow lanes with local, independent shops, whilst the European district (Gueliz) plays host to modern restaurants, major stores and fast food chains. Gueliz is the hippest neighbourhoods in the city and attracts the young and trendy. For posh Marrakech, head to Hivernage, a playground for the rich and famous, with high-class hotels, elegant restaurants, and fancy bars.
Travellers and activities
Marrakech ranks among the globe’s great shopping cities. You can spend an entire week here doing nothing but shopping and have an amazing time. Morrocan markets, or Souks, are renowned throughout the world as the most exotic marketplaces of all. They offer a bewildering experience and sensory overload that makes for a truly unique experience. Make sure to haggle as you pick up delicious multicoloured carpets, silk kaftans, spices, antiques, lanterns and jewellery!Marrakech for romantic couples
A memorable destination for romantic couples, Morocco’s city of Marrakech is packed full of activities and sights to suit varied tastes. Stay in a riad, a former palace or previous home of a wealthy Marrakshi and enjoy living in opulent luxury. Explore the souks with your partner and buy each other small mementoes to remember your time together. Then as the day draws to a close, watch the sun go down from a roof terrace as you admire the outline of the striking Koutoubia Mosque and listen to the call to prayer drifting through the evening sky.
The law on palm trees formally prohibits cutting them, and palm trees stand proudly in the middle of the roads!
