Riads, villas and kasbahs in Morocco
If you’re seeking a taste of the exotic not too far from home, then a hotel or riad in Morocco is the perfect place. You can choose from a variety of self catering holiday rental properties here – from old fashioned riads in the old cities, to beachfront houses by the coast and mountain hideaways. You can escape the crowds, or choose to be a part of them. The likes of Marrakech and Fez have increased in popularity in recent years. In amongst the minarets and donkey carts, and through the narrow streets, you’ll find your perfect riad in Morocco tucked away, a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of life within the old city walls. In these cities you can savour Morocco’s world renowned cuisine, bargain in the souks and relax in the local hammams (steam baths). Many of the riads rent by the room, but if you want exclusive use of your Moroccan hideaway, then you will be able to find that too.
