  • Perfect stay

    "We spent 1 week in marrakech and were very satisfied with Agnès and Philippe' appartment. It looked exactly like the picutres and we would definitely recommend it. The appartment is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need. Also very comfortable is the pick up service and the daily room service. Everything is reachable by walking distance, a car is not necessary. Gueliz is a perfect place, not only for shopping, there are many excellent restaurant like Grand Café de la poste, Bagatelle, La Trattoria, La Rôtisserie de la Paix. Agnès & Philippe are perfect hosts and help always with words and deeds. We would love to come back."

  • Excellentissime!

    "Merci pour tout! Nous avons passé une semaine extraordinaire.Le logement est conforme au descriptif fait. Sa situation géographique est top puisque proche de la place, au bout du troisième jour on se rendait place Jemaa el Fna en 1/4 d'heure (avec 4 enfants de 13 à 7ans), nous avons également fait les jardins de Majorelle à pied et au pire le bus de ville "alsa" n•2 nous prend à l'entrée de la résidence et vous dépose à la place pour trois fois rien! Pharmacie, p'tit magasin où l'on trouve de tout même du très bon pain, des viennoiseries pour le p'tit déjeuner enfin bref de tout! Le p'tit resto pour le soir si on ne veut pas ressortir. Surveiller nuit et jour par des gardiens on s'y sent très bien ... Nous avons eu un p'tit problème intendance (pas bien méchant) un p'tit mail à la propriétaire et Hichem qui est lui sur place l' avait réglé en moins de temps qu'il ne le faut pour le dire! Je pourrais continuer longtemps à vous décrire les lieux mais je vais juste terminer par NOUS GARDONS PRÉCIEUSEMENT L'ADRESSE en espérant bien y retourner un jour inchallah! Merci pour tout"

South Africa Travel Tips

Getting to South Africa Vacation Rentals

South Africa has three international airports located in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Most flights from North America and Europe route to either Johannesburg or Cape Town. Johannesburg International is also known as O R Tambo International Airport and the major hub for visitors wanting to travel on to the Kruger National Park, the Drakensberg Mountains and other parts of the country. In South Africa, the best way to get around is by hiring a car. There is an extensive road network that provides access to all major tourist attractions. If you are not comfortable with driving, then you can organize a chauffeur-driven car rental or a tour guide to take you around. Airport-to-city transfers can easily be arranged and most major cities have taxis that provide point-to-point transportation.

A Year-Round Destination at South Africa House Rentals

South Africa is a destination that can be visited all year-round. The different regions have varying climates because of their unique topography and geographical location. The east coast is significantly warmer and more humid all year-round. The summertime temperatures frequently exceed 30 degrees Centigrade and humidity is usually more than 80 percent. As you travel further inland, the Drakensberg Mountains form an escarpment to the plateau that dominates the interior of the country. The region around Johannesburg has a more continental climate due to its altitude of approximately 2,000 meters above sea level. Summers are hot with thundershowers and winter months are cold overnight but warm up significantly during the day. The Lowveld region, where the Kruger Park is located, is very hot in summer and has relatively mild winters. Game viewing is often better in the winter season but can be enjoyed throughout the year. Cape Town and the Western Cape have a Mediterranean climate which results in hot, dry summers and cold, wet winters. The best time of year to visit Cape Town is between February and April where you can enjoy long summer days and great sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean.

A Host of Attractions at South Africa Vacation Homes

South Africa is a destination that has a wide variety of tourist attractions. The country has a rich and diverse cultural history and is known locally as the rainbow nation. This is because South Africa is such a melting pot of different cultures. Historical and cultural tours are available through the different regions and focus on different aspects of South Africa’s diverse culture and history. You can learn about the early European settlers, the original African tribes and the conflicts that shaped the country. Recent political history is a big attraction for many visitors. Recommended while in Johannesburg is a tour to the city of Soweto and the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. In Cape Town, you can take a ferry tour to Robben Island which was the prison where Nelson Mandela was held a political prisoner for more than 30 years.

South Africa’s other major attraction is its wildlife. There are hundreds of national and private game reserves throughout the country that provide excellent game viewing experiences. For the more adventurous, you can enjoy bush walks where you can get close to the animals in their natural environment. The Kruger National Park was South Africa’s first reserve and is still the largest in the country.

South Africa is a destination that is scenically very beautiful. There are numerous hiking trails that traverse the mountains, and outdoor recreation can be enjoyed in a wide variety of sports. Cycling, paddling, rafting, overlanding, trekking, horseback riding and mountain biking are just a few of the activities available.
