Riad L'Orangeraie, Marrakech, Morocco
Fantastic value for money considering the prime location, this arty, friendly riad is located in the heart of Marrakech's medina. The seven-room townhouse wraps itself gracefully around two expansive patios - one with fountains and aromatic flowers, the other with a mosaic swimming pool and a steamy hammam.
Up top is a sunny roof terrace looking out over the Atlas mountains. Explore the vibrant Djemaa el-Fna, the mad must-see marketplace with everything from fire-eaters to snake charmers, plan an excursion to the desert and haggle for holiday bargains in the maze-like souks.
Rates: Rooms from £103 per night, based on two sharing. This includes breakfast.
