Not everyone falls in love with Morocco on their first visit. The country presents such a diverse range of experiences that it challenges one’s preconceptions. You can jump from the first to the third world in just a few miles, or in the cities, a few hundred yards; you can head to the coast for sun, surf and sand and be blown back to your riad; you can be driving along a European style road that leads you to unchanged villages, olive groves and oases that were there a thousand years ago; and travel from deserts to high mountain passes.
In just a few hours flying time from London you can be in North Africa’s most exotic city. Marrakech offers a colourful landscape of alleys and minarets, modern hotels and restored riads, celebrated markets and Moorish mosques, and the wonderful back drop of the Atlas Mountains. Two nights here at the exclusive riad hotel, La Maison Arabe, located just outside the Medina, with its famous restaurant, luxuriously decorated Arabian rooms, pool and off-site private pool in La Palmeraie, makes an extremely comfortable start to your adventure. 48 hours will give you just enough time for the sights, shopping and traditional cuisine of this frenetic city.
Enough of this excitement - time for a car and driver to take you 1½ hours south to the peace of the High Atlas Mountains and to the Kasbah du Toubkal at the foot of Jebel Toubkal, which at 1800m provides guests with outstanding views of the valleys below and the summit above. Restored on ecological principles and using traditional materials, but with modern comforts in your and a warm Berber welcome, this is a very special place to relax for three days. Whether hiking at your own pace on foot or mule or just wandering along local tracks, whether meditating on the rooftop terrace or lazing in the hammam, we guarantee you will leave all your stress behind.
