Flights to Morocco are available all year round from several UK airports and from various cities in Europe. Here are some suggestions for overnight accommodation near UK airports.
Agadir is the closest airport to Taroudant (50 minutes’ drive along a good and fairly quiet road), the small authentic Moroccan market town where our guest house, La Maison Anglaise is situated. An alternative is to fly to Marrakech, with a choice of 2 options: 3.25 hours on the new motorway or 5 hours over the spectacular Tiz n Test Pass, reputed to be the most scenic in Morocco. We advise travelling to Agadir rather than Marrakech if possible.
It is always helpful to seek advice from us about the best flights to Morocco because we understand how to make the best itinerary, bearing in mind a variety of factors including: flight timings, luggage allowances, days that flights operate, when the flights are released, pattern of pricing (varies depending on when you book, dates, days, the airports and airlines), as well as flying into one airport and home from another.

Airport meet and greet
Our own excellent safe, friendly drivers and their comfortable, well maintained vehicles make your arrival. Read about them here.
Here are some recent reviews from our clients which reflect the spirit of Rachid and Said and their dedication to our clients’ enjoyment and wellbeing.
La Maison Anglaise is a very special place. And the desert trip was out of this world!!!The drivers Said and Rachid made it even more special. They really tuned in with us, and I felt very touched by that…..respecting each other and having a fun time. I learned so much about the people and the land from them and also from your team in the house. They all, you included, have such a generous spirit. Sabine G, April 2015
The drivers were really awesome and informative Sarah M, April 2015
I can’t praise Rachid enough. A good driver, tolerant of my endless photos and questions, and taking me through the very best routes and treks. C Prior, February 2015
It has been such a wonderful sharing here, with Said and Rachid …….. It feels like a really valuable meeting of cultures. I can’t express how precious this has been for all of our party, as a chance to experience an Islam most westerners never see. Cordelia P, April 2015
We forgot to mention “little” Said, the driver! We so appreciated his easy going, flexibility, reliability, sincerity. He drove well and we felt secure; he took care of our different needs, be it stopping every few metres for photographs, toilet breaks, picking lavender, finding the best place to sit in the cafe, explaining and pointing out things, letting us decide between options, giving space for silence or sharing his (and then our) favourite Arabic- Berber-African music with us.
