Item description for Morocco Chic (Chic Destinations) by Francoise Raymond Kuijper...
Morocco Chic brings travellers on a journey to the western edge of the Arab world and the gateway of North Africa. Begin on the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Coast, with their colonial fortified cities and seaside resorts, then scale the snow-capped Atlas mountains with their rustic Berber villages, and end on camelback among the far reaches of the Merzouga dunes, camping in a nomadic tent beneath the desert sky. In between, lose yourself in the cloistered medieval medinas of Fez and Marrakech, among imperials monuments and intimate riads. Complementing the information on the colourful history, sights and facts of each province are chapters introducing travellers to the most stylish accommodations in Morocco, from the largest luxury hotels and resorts, whose guest lists have included royalty, heads of state and glitterati, to the most intimate villas and maisons d'htes, where one feels like a guest in a private home. Among the traditional Moroccan options are carefully restored riads, grand kasbahs, and even nomadic Cadal tents. Get to know the 50 properties featured even before arriving, through vivid descriptions of their architecture and design, and their finer touches. A fact box provides essential information on each property and its nearby attractions.
