• Luxury Marrakech Holidays
  • Overview

    Few cities in the world enjoy such a dramatic setting and intoxicating atmosphere as Marrakech where the rose-pink walls of the ancient city sit low beneath the soaring peaks of the Atlas Mountains and the fronds of towering palm trees jostle for position above the medieval ramparts where nesting storks colonise each vacant turret. One of Morocco’s four Imperial Cities, Marrakech was founded in 1062 and is today still the commercial centre for the High Atlas and the Moroccan Sahara. An exciting and lively city, it boasts a vibrant medina listed as an UNESCO World Heritage site, vast souks considered by many to be the best in Morocco, numerous historic monuments, luxurious riads and tranquil, exotic gardens.

    Djemaa el Fna

    Marrakech has attracted visitors for centuries and Djemaa el Fna square is the focal point to which tribes and travellers have been drawn since ancient times. Each day, as the shadow of the elegant Koutoubia minaret lengthens towards the square, the carnival begins and an extraordinary collection of Berber musicians, snake-charmers, fortune tellers, fire eaters and dancers gather to

    entertain the ever shifting circles of mesmerised onlookers. During the day, wander for hours through the seemingly infinite souks and enjoy a refreshing mint tea on the terrace of a pavement cafe whilst waiting for the colourful pageant to unfold.

    Medina & Souks

    A multitude of souks are found in the intricate maze of the vibrant medina where the heady scent of the spice stalls, the din of the carpet auctions and the bustle of the crowds, creates an exciting atmosphere. Souk des Teinturiers, the dyers’ souk, is strung with brightly coloured wools and silks, Souk Zrabia, the former slave market, trades in beautiful carpets, and Souk des Babouches specialises in traditional Moroccan slippers. There is a large covered street market, Kissaria, a leather market for bags, boots, sandals and jackets, and numerous souks selling pretty much anything you can think to buy and wish to haggle for!
