Morocco Vacation Rentals
While slightly off the beaten path as it brings together the exotic Arabic, Islamic, and African worlds, Morocco harmonizes its idiosyncrasies from the Atlantic coast to the Atlas Mountains. Offering a distinct charm that lies in its diversity, this land of intrigue is waiting for you to invoke its spirit and uncover its mysteries during an exciting adventure from your Morocco vacation rental home base.
Home to the Imperial City of Rabat and the Pink City of Marrakech, the Atlantic Coast offers a wide selection of amusements and attractions along its banks. Sheltered beaches, with a long expanse of fine sand and calm waters, can be found up and down the coast and offer the perfect jumping off point for swimming, fishing, and boating. However, the beaches are a small part of any Moroccan story as the cities offer in-depth and entertaining insight into the country’s rich history.
Always near the top of any itinerary, guests of Atlantic Coast vacation rentals
cannot miss the capital city of Rabat. Historical attractions, such as the unfinished, 12th century mosque Tour Hassan, overwhelm this great city as do the stunning gateways, including the Gate of the Ambassadors and the Oudaias Kasbah Gate. While you could spend a whole day strolling the gardens and Roman ruins of the Chellah or soaking in the stunning architecture of the Mohammed V Mausoleum, recreational pursuits can also be yours at the nearby Mamora Forest and the many beaches along the shore.
Marrakech, whose nickname “Pink City” refers to its salmon colored buildings that reflect the color of the earth below, is home to the largest theological site in the Mahgreb, the Ben Youssef Medersa. Visitors can view carved woodwork and mosaics and then head over to the city square, Djemaa el-Fna (Place of the Dead), at nightfall to catch the exotic and exciting performances.
Considered the spiritual and intellectual center of the country, Fès is the perfect place to step back in time and soak in the bustling bazaar atmosphere around the two famous mosques of Al-Qarawiyin and Al-Andalus. If you are able to find your way out of the marketplace’s winding streets, a few can’t miss sights are at your fingertips, including the Nejjarine Square and Fountain, the Royal Palace, and the Dar Bath Museum.
Although the city of Casablanca may call out to you with romantic notions related to the notorious movie, the largest city in Morocco is not teeming with sights and attractions like other Atlantic Coast destinations. While the Hassan II Mosque is awe-inspiring and the nightlife is rather entertaining, it is typically not necessary to spend more than a day in Casablanca.
For those seeking active excursions along the backbone of Morocco, Atlas Mountains vacation rentals
are an ideal option for getting your fill of these snow-capped stunners. While exploring the woodlands, open pastures, and small lakes of the region during a walking tour is always popular, guests can also use their rental as a jumping off point for visiting the fringes of the Sahara or the fertile plains and beaches of the Atlantic Coast.
Overflowing with entertainment and excitement along its shore and throughout its backbone, a Morocco getaway is the perfect way to escape the ordinary and experience a vacation that surpasses all of your wildest expectations. To enjoy all of the comforts of home while you explore the best of this African jewel, book your Morocco vacation home rental today.
