Red City retreat
Days become milder and the nights cooler during November in Marrakech, making it easier to wander the narrow streets of the enticing medina. Kuoni has five nights, half board, at the Golden Tulip Farah hotel for £399, including BA flights from Gatwick on either 17 or 24 November. The hotel has a large outdoor pool and is located a short walk away from the Unesco-protected medina, within which is the lively main square and Koutoubia Mosque. await. www.kuoni.co.uk

Travel to the north in October and easyJet Holidays has an all-inclusive week, departing Stansted on 16 October, at the Hotel Club Portinatx for £247.50 per person.
