Tiny travellers are very welcome at Fawakay with flights only taking 3½ hours from UK airports. We’re only twenty minutes drive from the centre of Marrakech so you can easily hop into a taxi and experience the wonders of Djemaa El-Fna square – the children will love all the snake charmers, fire-eaters and story-tellers.

Back at Fawakay we offer a special children’s menu including pizza, pasta, meatballs, chicken kebabs, icecream, crepes, chocolate mousse and other favourities. Francis is a dabhand at rustling up junior mocktails (as well as more grown-up ones) and our wonderful cook Bouchera can run minichef classes in our kitchen available for children aged six plus with a maximum of three children per session. Meanwhile, you can enjoy a couple of hours lazing by our wonderful pool….

The local henna lady will be visiting us regularly and offering spa treatments for all our visiting princesses. And if you take over an entire villa, each child will be given their very own djellaba as seen being modelled by Ziggy. With a number of four-legged friends (and some two-legged ones as well) to meet – including Doris our famous donkey – Fawakay is an ideal spot for a family holiday.
