Nestled peacefully in the Tiznit Province, in the region of Souss-Massa-Draa in Morocco, is the quaint town of Tiznit. Although it is not as old as some of the towns and villages to be found across the country of Morocco, a Tiznit holiday is guaranteed to give travellers a true taste of what everyday Moroccan life is like. Visitors can expect to be able to watch the world go by and enjoy the silence whilst resting comfortably in a luxurious Tiznit holiday rental house. It is almost guaranteed that a Tiznit holiday will leave you with some lasting memories as well as the feeling of truly having been to the “real” Morocco.
Due to the fact that Tiznit is a small and somewhat traditional town, visitors will find that there is very little in the way of activities and attractions to be indulged in here. The emphasis is truly on mixing with the locals and experiencing the traditional culture of Morocco. The easiest way to do this is to visit the Suuq which is held every Thursday in the town and is one of the biggest in the area. Tiznit also has a traditional mosque, built in a typical Saharan style, complete with wooden perches protruding from all angles on the outer walls.
If you do feel the need to spread your wings and leave your Tiznit holiday rental house for a while, then you could take the long (but worthwhile) journey to the fortified village of Ait Benhaddou, which lies on the outskirts of the town of Ouarzazate. Ait Benhaddou has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has some of the finest examples of Kasbahs to be found in the whole of Morocco. Many travellers flock to the village each year and it has been used in many recognisable films that date back as far as the 1960s.
Booking a Tiznit holiday rental house means that you will be able to enjoy some fabulous weather, with an Arid climate meaning that the town is mainly dry and warm throughout the year. Most travellers stay in Tiznit from August through to September when it can reach as warm as 32°C during the daylight hours. The lowest temperatures usually occur in January and February when it can drop to around 14°C, which may be more comfortable for those who don’t like too much heat. There is very little rainfall during the year and the village sees approximately 3 inches of rain during 12 months.
