No city in the world can offer such a diverse and eclectic array of accommodation as Marrakech where tiny riad sits alongside the newly reopened La Mamounia, beloved of Winston Churchill. The colourful Medina, with its labyrinth of tiny streets and crowded bazaars is home to an incredible collection of riads and boutique hotels. Tucked away behind the walls of the old town they are small havens of tranquillity and relaxation.

These properties vary from just a few rooms to nearer twenty and all of them are different, usually privately owned and reflecting the owners taste, artefacts and furniture, painstakingly sourced to magical effect. Combining your stay in Marrakech with a few nights up in the Atlas Mountains makes for the perfect long weekend and we have included two stunning Kasbahs in our selection.

We hope you enjoy exploring our personal selection and please contact us for rates and details of booking. We can also help you with all aspects of your time in Morocco, from private transport, which restaurants to visit, personal shopping guides, trekking and cookery workshops.
