Mesmerising Marrakesh

From the open-air theatre of the Jemaa El Fna Square to the natural oasis of the palm grove and the legendary Majorelle Garden, Marrakesh’s alluring atmosphere has long attracted visitors. Staying in a grand oasis-like riad on the edge of the old Medina, join a private guide for a selection of fascinating tours and experiences to really get a taste of the ‘Ochre City’ and a millennium of history.

Days 4 — 7

High Atlas

Next head south into the Atlas Mountains. A rugged range stretching from Atlantic to Tunisia, river valleys snaking between alpine peaks are dotted with Berber villages, green groves and shepherd’s flocks.

Days 7 — 9

Coastal cool

And now the drive north to the Atlantic Ocean and the handsome old port of Essaouira, tasting biodynamic wines on an organic vineyard on the way. An important anchorage dating back to antiquity, Essaouira’s golden age saw it as the main link between Saharan camel trains from Timbuktu to Europe and the world. In the 20th century it became a favourite hangout of actors, rock stars and hippies.
