• Leave your heels behind and soak up the scenery on a luxe walking holiday


    for power trekking

    Blissfully quiet save for the occasional donkey bray, Chez Max is a Berber dwelling in Tagadert, reincarnated as a mountain retreat with six bedrooms and two pools. This is the perfect springboard for excursions into the dramatic landscape of the High Atlas, Morocco's iconic range. Discover rocky Plateau du Kik on your doorstep, or go further afield to the valley of Ouirgane – steep gradients ensure strong calf-muscle action. Then take a
    25-minute taxi ride into Marrakech for treasure hunting in the souk of Gueliz.Prices from $1,295 per person for five nights plus private transfers and flights; lawrenceofmorocco.com
