Make a holiday villa in Morocco your home away from home

The mention of Marrakech and Casablanca evoke images of vast deserts dotted with wind-swept dunes and turbaned travellers braving the gusts on stately camels. Hollywood productions have played no small part in embedding such ideas in tourists’ minds, but there is much more to Morocco than hostile deserts. Being strategically positioned between the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, this North African nation boasts astounding beaches and excellent warm weather. It is also home to the famous Atlas Mountains. Visitors should prepare for a unique cultural experience as they book their Morocco holiday rentals. Accommodation in Morocco offered by HomeAway comes in the form of traditional Moroccan riads designed with distinctive Arabic flair and villas from which one can see the jagged peaks of Atlas in the distance. Those who would want to be close to the sea can book holiday rentals that are right by the beaches.

Things to do

-Beaches: Given the blazing temperatures of this locale, most tourists make a beeline for the beaches at Agadir soon after arrival. Here they can enjoy the abundant sunshine while contemplating the beauty of the azure waves and drinking in the refreshing sea breeze.

-Deserts: Anyone who has watched Lawrence of Arabia will want to grab this opportunity to traverse the dunes of the Sahara. The best location to set off from is Merzouga where holidaymakers can get their camels or 4x4 vehicles and journey under the unforgiving sun as they relive the gruelling yet exciting expeditions of Lawrence.

-Mountains: Those whose idea of a holiday involves the adventure of scaling lofty heights will want to climb the snow-capped High Atlas Mountain range. Its highest peak is Toubkal which rises over 4,000 metres above sea-level, making it the highest point in all of North Africa. Visiting the mountain villages en route to the summit provides an intriguing cultural twist as life there is markedly different from life in the typical Arabian town.

-Hammam: After enduring kilometres of weary travel, visitors will be keen to retreat into a traditional steam bath or ‘hammam’ as they’re referred to by locals. This is not only a place to get a relaxing massage, it is a great place to experience another unique facet of Moroccan culture. Hammams offer women an opportunity to rub shoulders and exchange ideas with local women.

-Sport: Its position by the Atlantic makes the shores of Morocco a prime surfing destination. During winter the winds provoke incredible breakers and both local surfers and visitors attack the waves eagerly. How about a skiing experience in Africa? Winter visitors can attack the slopes of the High Atlas Mountains with equal zeal. Though the quality of the skiing equipment and facilities may not be what you’ll get in the Alps, tourists will definitely make excellent memories there.

Weather in Morocco

To enjoy the glory of this beautiful country without suffering from the fierceness of its scorching summers, visitors are advised to make their bookings in Morocco holiday homes during spring or autumn. At these times the weather is relatively cooler and more conducive to outdoor activity. It is wise for visitors to consider the weather patterns for the specific area of Morocco they’ll be spending their vacation. During summer, one can embark on a tour of the mountainous parts of the country where temperatures are lower. A tour of the historic city of Marrakech and the Sahara is best done during spring (mid-March to May) or autumn (September to November). The North Coast experiences Mediterranean climate while the Atlantic Coast is usually rainy.

Travel to Morocco

The Mohammed V International Airport, the country’s busiest airport, is the main gateway into Morocco. This facility receives scheduled flights from most major cities in Europe as well as cities in the Middle East. Seasonal flights and scheduled flights are also available to residents of North America, departing from New York and Montreal. European tourists can use the ferry service that runs from Spain, specifically the port of Algeciras. This trip usually takes between 40 minutes and 2 hours.

The roof terrace was our favourite, we had breakfast here and we could sunbath. Said helped us with all our enquiries. Hope we will be back soon. Krystian and Mirka.

We love Essaouira but didn't want to be in the town as we wanted a garden and outside space. Location: The riad is situated in the picturesque countryside a short drive north of the village of Had Draa. At Had Draa you can buy essential supplies and fruit/veg from the weekly souk. The village also has the nearest petrol station. It is a great location for a relaxing family holiday as you have the countryside on your doorstep and also Essaouira is only a 20 minutes drive where you can visit the fish market, restaurants, beach and medina. Riad Flowered: Is set just off the road behind secure gates, however the road is not busy so the noise from traffic is not a problem. There is a great 360 degree view from the roof terrace. Once inside the space is clean and airy with lovely high ceilings. The sitting room has various seating areas, a television, dvd player and bluetooth stero system. There was also a wifi service, although this was variable due to the location. All the bedrooms are simply decorated and have adequate storage space to hang clothes. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and there is also a shared family bathroom for the other two bedrooms. I would recommend taking a hairdyer as there wasn't one during our stay (although I'm sure if we'd asked Eric and Solange would have found us one). The bed linen is clean with lovely crisp cotton sheets. The kitchen is well equipped with a cooker, large fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, blender, food mixer, coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine. The cooker is supplied with gas canesters which are changed on request when they are empty. There are also two gas fired heaters for colder nights (we were there in February). There is an also and iron. The garden was private and immaculately presented with a gardener who visits daily to maintian things and clean the pool. The pool has 6 sun beds and there are various pool toys stored in the house. Our son loved the wildlife in the area and there are also lots of birds in the garden which sounds lovely. Hosts: Eric and Solange are fantastic hosts and live nearby. They were a phone call away if we needed anything but not intrusive. They keep the house very well maintained. Tips: Car required We would definately recommend Riad Flowered as a great place to relax and unwind and we hope to return there again one day.

The house was in a rural area but only a 10 min drive to Essaouira. We loved waking up to the sounds of the birds and the donkey. Whilst it was cool at night there were heaters in every room. (It was January). The days were were mostly sunny and warm. Rachid, the house manager, was very helpful when we needed him and spoke English well. I would definately recommend this house.
