I would like to take my husband for a holiday in April or May 2012. I would like it to be somewhere relaxing, not too far to travel and interesting.Rae, 21 March 2012
Thank you very much for contacting Audley Travel with regards to your proposed trip this coming April / May time, we would be delighted to offer some advice.
For a scenic trip in April / May time for interesting culture and relaxation I would look no further than Morocco. During April and May the temperature is lovely and the skies tend to be clear so it is a perfect time of year to visit the region and as the flight is only 3.5 hours from London it works brilliantly for a short trip.
Marrakesh is a wonderful introduction to the country and the sights, sounds and smells of this intriguing and vibrant city are a cultural delight. For relaxation I would recommend visiting the picturesque town of Essaouira on the Atlantic coast. This small coastal port has been attracting artists for years and has a wonderful bohemian atmosphere which is very different to the rest of the country. I would also advise you visit the Atlas Mountains just an hour outside Marrakesh, here you can simply relax at a beautiful hotel or walk in the hills if you choose, the scenery is superb.
