Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Marrakech also enquired about holiday homes in Essaouira, villas in Sidi Moussa and apartments in Agadir

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.

Superb property in a great location

5 of 5
This property is great! Fantastic location, brilliant amenities and was just perfect for my 3 day stay. Only 20 minutes from the airport and within walking distance of the Plaza. I will definitely be contacting Simo in the near future to book this place again......highly recommended.

Lovely, small riad, perfect for a family visit.

5 of 5
We hired the whole riad for 2 adults and 3 children aged 5, 5 and 6. It was spot on - lovely and clean, lots of space and perfectly hosted by Ahmed. Missing his huge breakfasts already.

Heavenly Villa. Pure luxury and relaxation.

5 of 5
What a truly fantastic place this is! It was our first visit to Morocco and we had no idea what to expect. There is always an element of the unknown when you book a holiday online and I can genuinely say that this property surpassed our expectations by a mile! We were collected from the airport on our arrival as arranged by the owner. The people who collected us were very friendly and welcoming and put us entirely at ease. We didn't really want to hire a car during our stay so this was a real bonus. On arrival at the house we were presented with a fabulous three course meal and extremely nice Moroccan wine, this set the tone for what was to come. The chef at the villa is just amazing! With four kids and a hungry husband to cook for I was more than ready for a break from cooking and cleaning up and what a break it was. Every day Meryam the chef would present a fantastic selection of meals with something for everyone. Delicious home made soups, colourful tagines, grilled chicken and barbequed fish. Not to mention the pastries and desserts. Just wonderful. The house itself is huge, very clean and very comfortable. despite being largely unaware of the presence of any staff, beds were made and bathrooms cleaned as if by magic. As soon as we ventured towards the pool, towels would appear along with a tray of cold drinks. During our stay we took advantage of the concierge service which the owner recommended to us. This enabled us to take two day trips, one into the high Atlas mountains and one into the centre of Marrakech. These were very good and included our transport and lunch. The guides were very knowledgable and we felt that these day trips enabled us to see and understand a side of Morocco which we would otherwise have been ignorant to. During our trip to the medina we visited the Hammam. This was a fantastic experience which I would definitely recommend along with visiting the gardens at Majorelle. Overall, a wonderful holiday experience. Really good communication from the owner who is genuinely concerned that for those who stay in the villa every need is catered for. Frequent emails and a wealth of information meant that we were confident that we could expect a warm welcome and any problems or questions would be dealt with. I would recommend this villa to anyone. Whether you want to explore Morocco or just stay put and enjoy the luxurious surroundings, this is like paradise.
