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.

                                                                                                      As beautiful as the riad was, it was Rachida who made our stay one of the best holidays we have had. Her thoughtful attention and hospitality was overwhelming and she really felt like family. We miss her already. The accommodation was ample ( we were a party of 9). The facilities were comfortable. The kids loved cooling off in the pool. The whole property was stunning and well maintained. The location was ideal for our family but not as close to the main attractions as it appears on the map. However the number 6 bus will take you from bab ghmat to Jemaa el Fna for 4 dirham. The tok toks are also an experience unto themselves! The convenience shop lives up to it's name not least by being about 10 feet from the front door and was a life saver many times as it's open until late. The owner closes for short periods in the day for prayer. The tour company associated with the riad Azerg tours is a little pricey if you want to visit attractions outside Marrakech. You will need to negotiate, however the trips are worth it. Ourika valley is suitable for families with teenagers who enjoy the challenge of climbing to see the waterfalls. Essouira is a beautiful beach where the camel rides on the sand were enjoyed by all . It's much cooler than Marrakech so remember to take a wrap/ hoodie/ cardie. It's also really windy. The Ouzoud water falls are also worth the 2 and half hour trip especially boat ride at the bottom.

We spent a truly wonderful week here and as the days went by appreciated more and more it's simplicity of build and style. With temperatures reaching 47 degrees the ample tree cover in the garden and the air con in the bedrooms was welcomed. The pool, a fabulous 20x4 metres, was fully utilised throughout. Our hosts, Anne-Clare and Jean Denis, were always on hand to give us advice and help and the wonderful caretaker, Mohammed, magically appeared with the produce of his garden or his Berber dishes. A great holiday and a great experience
