Winter is still well established and you're tired of looking grey? Are you dreaming of sunshine and incredible landscapes for a weekend without going halfway around the world? We have the perfect destination for you! Discover Marrakech for a short stay and marvel at the riches that the red city has to offer.

Why visit Marrakech this winter?

Situated in northern Morocco, close to the Sahara desert, the beautiful city of Marrakech enjoys a hot and dry climate all year round. In winter, when the cold weather hits the entire Mediterranean basin, Marrakech enjoys a mild climate, ideal for a stay in the sun. You can spend your afternoons lounging in a heated swimming pool with an average temperature of 20°C in February and almost no rainy days. 
 
As well as having this pleasant weather, you will almost have the city all to yourself, so there is no need to rush around in Marrakech's souks or one of the city's most famous attractions and museums. What's more, with fewer tourists, you will be able to experience life in Marrakech like a local.

Winter light is better for photography than summer light, offering more texture and shade. You will therefore be able to capture the sunset even more beautifully at this time of year, when the sunlight reaches magnificent blue hues.
