Make a holiday rental in Marrakech your home away from home

Morocco’s third largest city lives up to its name (which translates to ‘Land of God’) by offering visitors a divine combination of lively cultural experiences, historical monuments and natural beauty. It is where visitors who want to have an undiluted feel of life in a modern Arab city will get what they’re looking for. Marrakech’s strategic location makes it the ideal starting point for adventures into the vast Sahara Desert and up the 4km-high peak of the High Atlas Mountain. Those who have fallen victim to Marrakech’s charms can trust HomeAway to provide them with the right kind of holiday rental to suit their needs. Spacious villas are available to those travelling in a large group while there are apartments suited to those couples on a romantic escapade. Most of the Marrakech holiday rentals are immaculately furnished with the right mix of modern practicality and typical Arab flair. Facilities such as swimming pools and air-conditioning are provided to guarantee visitors a comfortable stay.

Things to do

-Shopping: One of the things that sets Marrakech apart from other locations is the unique shopping experience provided by the markets or ‘souks’ there. In these bustling assemblies holidaymakers can get everything they need in terms of attire as well as supplies for their holiday homes. There are money changers here as well where tourists can change their pounds, dollars or Euros for the local dirhams. A morning of shopping here is a great way of interacting with locals.

-Monuments: There are many interesting historical sites in Marrakech, not least of which are the well-preserved Saadian tombs which date back centuries. The elaborately decorated El Bahia Palace is also worth a visit, if only to briefly step into the shoes of noblemen of the past. In another ancient palace, El Badi, visitors will find a wonderful vantage point from which to survey the city and surrounding areas.

-Museums: To get a further insight into Moroccan history, visitors should pass by the Dar Si Saïd Museum. This former palace contains artefacts that give a glimpse into different stages of Morocco’s past. Collections of works by local artisans are also exhibited here. While visiting the beautiful, tranquil Majorelle Gardens, tourists should also check out the Berber Museum there.

-Cultural experience: Anyone who has toured Marrakech will recommend an evening at the Djemaa El Fna square. This is where visitors can enjoy the frenetic drumbeats of Moroccan music and watch nimble dancers glide to these captivating rhythms. It is also where storytellers and fortune-tellers gather to entertain whoever will listen and where women can get their hands and feet tattooed with beautiful henna artwork. Islam is an integral part of Moroccan culture and in Marrakech tourists will find the largest madrassa in North Africa which also contains lovely works of art.

-Hammam experience: Visitors keen on authentic Moroccan experiences should not leave their Marrakech holiday homes before treating themselves to a hammam. These traditional Moroccan steam baths have been modernised and now offer a range of treatments to rival any spa. This is the best way to relax after ascending into the Atlas Mountains or braving the Sahara.

Weather in Marrakech

As with most locations in North Africa, visitors should expect hot and dry conditions when they arrive at their holiday rentals in Marrakech, especially given the city’s proximity to the Sahara. Those who choose to book a holiday between June and September should expect nothing less than scorching days with temperatures approaching 40°C. It is therefore a good idea to head to the ‘Red City’ as winter is giving way to spring from around February. Temperatures then are just breaking into the twenties. This locale is not known to experience much rainfall and April, with average measured rainfall of about 35mm, is the wettest month on the Marrakech calendar.

Travel to Marrakech

The Marrakesh Menara Airport receives passengers on direct flights from London, Madrid, Munich and most other major European cities. Those coming in aboard charter flights from these locations will also be able to land at this airport. Visitors can get a taxi from here to their holiday homes in Marrakech but this will be much more expensive than taking the bus. The bus stop is not hard to find, being just a few metres from the arrivals hall.

We had a lovely time. The villa is a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, housed in a safe gated complex. Our children loved playing and relaxing in the pool. We made a few trips to the Medina (taxi fare is 400 Dhs for a round trip) and a day trip to the Atlas mountains (taxi fare 1200 Dhs). The latter is highly recommended - it consisted of a visit to the home of a berber family, traditional moroccan lunch beside a river stream and a guided trek up to the siti Fatimah Waterfall and stopovers to local souvenir stores dotted along the mountain valley. Lunch and guided trek are not included in the taxi fare. We made a few trips to the local supermarket (Atacadou) en route to/from Marrakech. It is around 9-10km from the villa. There are no other stores local to the villa. The temperature in August is very hot (38-40 centigrade) and so timing any activities during the day is key - early morning or late afternoon / evening is best. The villa is fully air-conditioned and a welcome relief from a day out in the sun. Sofiane and his team were quick to respond whenever we had any issues and were only a phone call away. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would love to come again. It is an ideal retreat if you are not planning frequent visits to the centre of Marrakech (budget for taxi fares if you are).

As a travel agent I will definitely be recommending this riad to friends and clients alike. The building is so deceptive from outside, and as you enter the grand doorway, you feel like you have stepped into paradise. The architecture is so grand and every room has its own moroccan theme. The best part of this stay by far was our host Rachida, who went out of her way to ensure we had a comfortable stay. She is the kindest person that I have ever met and her hospitality was perfect. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Well, I can reassure you, the villa exceeded all expectations! I think we spent the first 20 minutes at the villa takes pictures, videos and facetiming our families/friends. The villa was much bigger and more impressive than it looked in pictures, it looked like something out of MTV cribs. The owner has very good taste and the décor was done to a high standard. We were at the villa during the start of the Euros and we were able to watch the games in HD on a huge flat screen TV. The villa staff comprises of security guards, drivers, cleaners and chefs, they catered to our every need and made the stay that much more enjoyable. The food the chefs made for us was excellent, the presentation was spot on. They made us traditional Moroccan dishes on same of the nights and on the others they made us a very tasty mixed grill. If I could have fitted the staff into my suitcase I would have lol. You don't really see much of the cleaners, that's because they work around you. When you're out in the pool, chilling in the pool house or play poker in the poker room (yes they have a poker room!!) they run out and clean the rooms for you. At night, they do a bed turn down service and place bottles of water at the bedsides. The purpose of this trip was to celebrate my stag do and I honestly can say I had the time of my life. We lived it up like kings for 4 days and we didn't leave the villa until we had to go hit up the clubs. I honestly cannot recommend this villa enough.
