Welcome back to the world – luxury holidays to Morocco

Fascinating, mysterious, radiant and colorful

The news we have been waiting for has just arrived: Morocco has today announced the reopening of its airspace following Covid restrictions and there are many reasons for going on a luxury holiday to Morocco.

As a holiday destination, Morocco has much to offer. It is an ancient, exotic and breathtakingly beautiful country that has lured foreign visitors for millennia. It is a land of contrasts: ancient and modern, Arab and Berber, European and African. From city souks to Sahara, few countries hold as much dreamy fascination for travellers as the beautiful country of Morocco. Also, rich history, beautiful art and evocative culture add to the country’s perennial appeal.

Morocco, with snow-topped mountain peaks, white beaches, undulating hills and old towns bustling with life, has an enduring appeal that has attracted people from all walks of life. Famous names that have fallen for the country include Winston Churchill, Jean Paul Gaultier and the Rolling Stones, among others.

The cosmopolitan city of Marrakech continues to be a magnet for travellers. Blessed by nature, the Marrakech region enjoys a magical setting. Located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains on the Haouz Plain, it is a place to discover particularly rich and varied landscapes: the bustle of the medina in the historical centre of Marrakech, with the spellbinding Djemaa el-Fna, total tranquillity under the palm trees, the ski resort in Oukaimden, the picturesque Ourika Valley and the majestic Ouzoud Falls.

Shopping in a traditional souk is a fascinating experience, the market stalls bulging with keepsakes – richly patterned rugs, leather goods, painted pottery and other handicrafts. And the food? Sublime. Think spices and dried fruits, fluffy couscous and fragrant tagines, refreshing mint tea and sensational street food, along with fine dining restaurants for elegant gourmet food.
