Marrakech is often the first port of call for any visitor to Morocco, its magnificent architecture off-set by the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains. It is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the country, bright colours, fragrant spices, the hustle and bustle of everyday life all combining to form a veritable symphony for the senses.
A holiday in Agadir is all about the beach – an astonishing 8km long stretch of fine, golden sand. With its wide palm-lined streets and laid-back beachfront bars and cafes, which stretch along the seafront promenade, Holidays to Agadir are enjoyed in one of Morocco’s most modern resorts. More reminiscent of the south of France, than traditional Morocco, it is a favourite with families and caters for guests of all ages.
High Atlas Mountains
The High Atlas Mountains form the backdrop to Marrakech, some 40 miles away by road – and a world away in ambience. A holiday here is the perfect antidote to city life and to the fast pace of 21st century living. Many choose to spend their time simply relaxing by the pool with a good book, surrounded by beautiful scenery, others prefer to be out and about rambling through the countryside and enjoying long walks through the Ouirgane Valley.
