Family holiday with children - June 2011
We decided to visit Marrakech for our family holiday, firstly as it is somewhere very different to the convenient Mediterranean options, yet only a 3 ½ hour flight at the most. Our stay at 18 Apple Gardens was so enjoyable, we thoroughly enjoyed the 10 day holiday and returned tanned and relaxed even having taken 2 very young children!
Marrakech as a holiday destination was so interesting, just driving down the road opens your eyes to a city buzzing with life against a stunning backdrop of the Atlas Mountains. If you enjoy shopping the Medina is an absolute must!
The Villa was outstanding and exceeded all our expectations. It was beautifully furnished, fresh, modern and spacious with a touch of the Moroccan charm. The children loved playing in the pool and garden. The 40 + degree heat that could put some people off, was bearable as the pool and air conditioning was our saving grace.
An added bonus was our lovely maid who for a small additional fee, was on hand to tidy up the villa and cook unbelievable traditional Moroccan cuisine. In my opinion the maid was the X Factor that made our stay so special!
I have to mention that the Moroccan culture is extremely family orientated, our children were embraced by the locals and I felt comfortable in their company. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and went out their way to ensure were happy. I know we will be going back again some time soon.
Just to paint one final picture… Kids tucked up in bed, we’re sat on the patio in a now cool 28 degrees with a perfect view of the sunset. Sipping decent cheap red wine and the Tagine is simmering away!!! I couldn’t think of a better holiday?
