One of the beauties of rural Morocco is the lack of light pollution which makes for amazing star-gazing.  All the riads and villas at Rebali  have roof terraces which are perfect for spotting planets and stars and we also have a pair of tripod-mounted stellar binoculars for guest use (no charge).  We hand out star maps but the best way to explore the skies is to download the “Starwalk” app to your tablet and use that as an interactive guide.  Or just lie back and count the shooting stars…

A big attraction of the Rebali is the space given over for relaxation. It is to fill the days with sightseeing and activities and whilst there are great restaurants many guest like to take advantage of the in-house dining and then just chillout in the evenings.

Rebali is located in the village of Sidi Kaouki 10 miles south of Essaouira and 100 miles west of Marrakech and 70 miles north of Agadir. The easiest way to get there is to fly direct to Essaouira and then you are just 15 minutes from paradise! There are direct flights from London Stansted, Paris and Casablanca. You can also fly to Marrakech and we will arrange a driver to pick you up - it is around 2.5 - 3 hours. Agadir is the same distance but a longer journey. You can also come by bus to Essaouira and then a 25 minute taxi journey (£7).
