Winter Getaways

Posted on: 26 March 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Two very different winter get-away explored.

Marakesh: If you can't bare the thought of having to wait another six months for some sunshine, then Morocco's Marakesh is one of the closest locations to home where you are virtually guaranteed some nice weather. From historic medinas, fabulous restaurants and beautiful medieval buildings, anyone wanting to forget about winter back home can do exactly that in Marakesh.

La Palmeraie, the luxurious tourist area of Marakesh is aptly equipped for the sun worshipper wanting to experience the good things in life. Jnane Tamsna, a luxurious estate comprising of two unique houses, which can be let separately, each house individually, or the property as a whole, offers the perfect escape for individuals, couples or groups of friends. As well as opulent accomodation and extensive courtyards, visitors also have use of their own private clay tennis court and private guest pool. Excursions to the nearby Atlas Mountains can also be booked from Marakesh, as well as other excursions capturing the true feel of Morocco. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to experience a different culture along with some winter sun. For More Info, Click Here

Munich: For anyone looking for a winter break without worrying too much about basking in sunny weather, the German city of Munich has much to offer the winter visitor. Situated to the North of the Alps on the river Isar, Munich is near enough to the Alps to be an interesting stop-over for anyone hoping to combine a city break with time on the piste this winter. But as a destination of its own, Munich, Germany's third largest city and the capital of ancient Bavaria, still has plenty to offer.

Unlike Berlin, Germany's capital, which, thanks to the ravages of the Cold War and its own peculiar place in history, does not feel like a German city, the Bavarian capital looks and feels like a German city. From Königsplatz, Munich's famous square created by Ludwig I and surrounded by the city's many museums and art galleries, to Marienplatz in the centre of the old city, visitors to Munich will not be disappointed by the range of things to see and do in Munich. Schloss Nymphenburg, the old Bavarain Royal family's summer palace (built between 1664 and 1758) is also an additional highlight to this captivating city. In addition, in the run-up to Christmas Munich plays host to some fabulous Christmas fairs. Flights and hotels to Munich can be booked via
