SECRET MOROCCO

From mystical Marrakech to the High Atlas mountains and Atlantic coast, staying at historic accommodations in unique locations

Nowhere is it truer than in Morocco that if you stay inside the walls of the old town, known as the ‘medina’, you will experience the country’s magic with every step, whereas staying at modern hotels outside, distances you from the colours, history and atmosphere of this uniquely different country.

This programme offers a combination of historic accommodations: a riad or kasbah in the Atlas Mountains at the foot of Toubkal, North Africa’s highest mountain, where 5% of room rates go to the local community; riads in Marrakech perfectly positioned to explore the sights and shops of the medina; in the ancient port of Essaouira, end at a traditional riad located within the medina walls and close to the port.

Following customer comments from our Grand Tour we have added a stay at their favourite hotel near Taroudant, once the capital of the Saadians before Marrakech and known as a ‘mini-Marrakech’.
