Family Holidays in October Half Term 2016

If you are looking for some sunshine in October and November, then you do need to look beyond the Med, which is more often than not subject to stormy, windy and wet spells. Instead, Morocco is the perfect answer and incredibly popular over October Half Term, you will get plenty of sunshine, warm (but not too hot) temperatures, and the opportunity to explore buzzing Marrakech, the tranquil Atlas Mountains and the magnificent Sahara Desert. Further afield, October and November are a great time to visit Southern and Eastern Africa, particularly if you can squeeze in more than a week’s holiday.

Morocco

Come the end of October, the high temperatures of the summer months have subsided to something altogether more civilised with temperatures usually in the high 20s Celsius in Marrakech and the Sahara and low 20s Celsius in the Atlas Mountains. The mountains turn a beautiful orange and gold as the villagers rush to collect their walnut harvest. A relaxing two centre week combining an atmospheric small riad in Marrakech’s old Medina with a beautiful Mountain hotel with stunning views, fresh air and traditional Berber hospitality is the perfect antidote to the onset of winter at home.

Explore Marrakech & the stunning scenery of the Atlas Mountains. Includes guided walk, mountain biking & Berber picnics.
