Sometimes overshadowed by the romanticism of Casablanca and the charm of Marrakesh, the city of Rabat, one of Morocco’s best-kept secrets, is a remarkable destination in its own right with plenty to offer to keep the keenest traveller busy for weeks. Traditional Moroccan buildings merge with a cosmopolitan metropolis with a distinct urban flavour, making it the perfect option for those who want to experience the best of both worlds. Rabat has stunning beaches and boulevards, superb architecture and incredible rural landscapes in the surrounding countryside that is simply begging to be discovered. Rippling ochre hills give way to an enchanting city that has evolved from a medieval Moorish settlement to a mighty capital as it became the bustling city that it is today. Those keen to experience some of the local culture will not be disappointed as Rabat hosts countless festivals throughout the year. The city is home to a magnificent legacy that is testament of its glorious historical past and will delight everyone in the family.
Renting holiday accommodation in Rabat
A holiday apartment in Rabat will guarantee that you can explore the city like a local. Rabat remains largely unspoilt by western tourism and local hotels can be uninviting and without character. Renting holiday accommodation in Rabat is the best way for you to discover the city as a family and interact with the amiable locals, as only they can point you towards the finest eateries away from the tourist trail. By choosing to stay in a holiday rental you can enjoy the city in all its glory within a welcoming local community instead of paying for a cramped room in a noisy hotel. Enjoy a home away from home where you can watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean from your own balcony or relax with a glass of wine in your private patio where the children can play undisturbed.
