September is the perfect time to visit Morocco, the rose coloured land of mint tea and tagines, where the sun sets across a minaret dotted cityscape and the majestic Atlas Mountains provide a stunning backdrop. Meander the exotic souks of Marrakesh loading up your bags with fresh spices, beautiful hand embroidered linens, embellished leather bags, handmade silk abayas, traditional bronze lanterns and floor cushions.
Explore Casablanca, a Moroccan jewel that demands to be explored, and make sure to stop by Hassan II Mosque. Visit the Medina in Fez, a thriving cultural scene filled with everything from artists galleries to amazing crafts. The picturesque Aït Benhaddou village is worth a detour. It’s a small UNESCO World Heritage Site and looks like it’s carved within the mountain itself. Don’t leave without seeing the Blue Village of Chefchaouen. Painted in a palette of mesmerizing blue, Chefchaouen’s offers a thousand photo opportunities.
Where to stay? We love the ravishing and regal La Mamounia hotel in Marrakesh set in lavish jasmine scented gardens; be enchanted by its Moorish opulence, its sensuous spa and the world class chef led restaurants that will cater to your every whim.
