Morocco Holidays - Living Like the Locals
If you are thinking of travelling to Morocco on your next vacation, try to skip the expensive hotel this year and indulge in a holiday rental instead. Live like the locals in a traditional Moroccan house or rial and enjoy a unique holiday that you are sure not to forget. There are very few better ways to experience a foreign culture than by living in a local residential neighbourhood, in a traditional-style house and seeing it culture fist hand.

Holiday rentals are a fast-growing trend among holiday-makers, because they offer more comfortable and authentic accommodation facilities than a traditional hotel. Renting a house or villa is the perfect arrangement for a group or family or for a couple that wants to splurge for some extra space and privacy.

Imagine, instead of being stuck in a small hotel room that you have the option of having an entire multi-bedroom house at your disposal. This is what a Morocco rental can offer you. Complete with all the amenities of a home, including a furnished living room, kitchen, multiple bathrooms, and a garden or courtyard, you will have your own oasis to retreat to after an exciting day of sight-seeing. Also you will not have to share your dining room, bar, or pool with hundreds of strangers, nor worry about keeping your kids quiet in a public restaurant. Morocco rentals allow one to relax and enjoy the freedom of renting your own place.

Moroccan rials are made for privacy and insulation from the busy city outside. They are designed like a hollow square, with the rooms surrounding an open garden in the centre. This is where the house takes its name from, as rial means "garden." These houses are specially designed to provide relief from the hot African sun, by allowing fresh air to circulate within the cool, shady courtyard. These quiet open spaces can be very calming after walking through a crowded, bustling city. Some houses also come with a pool – the best way to cool off.

To enrich your Moroccan experience, high-end rentals may even offer a chef to cook you delicious local cuisine, or even a masseuse to show you the ancient art of hammam massage. With all the conveniences of a hotel, but none of the hassles, a holiday rental is really the best way to enjoy your Moroccan adventure.

So shed the insulation of the hotel and venture into town to live among the locals. Morocco rentals allow you to enjoy the extra space, privacy, and comforts of home, even while experiencing life in a traditional Moroccan house.
