The extraordinary variety of landscapes encountered will enchant the most difficult.

The Mediterranean façade and the Rif region have magnificent canyons and verdant valleys.

The Middle Atlas is a clever combination of causses and summits.

The Atlantic coast is a procession of sandstone or limestone cliffs and extensive sandy beaches.

The Moroccan South combines valleys, gorges and desert.

Safety and stability:
Morocco is a stable country and the population as a whole is respectful, warm and welcoming, and as everywhere in France, a minimum of caution is required to avoid problems.

The country, assimilated unjustly and indiscriminately to the rest of the Maghreb, must bear the problem of image deficit and geopolitical amalgam of which it is a victim.
Theft there is rare because it is considered a serious offense by the Moroccan justice. The harassment is often limited to the heavy insistence of some tourist hunters and to cases of scams in the most tourist regions.

A taxation close to tax haven is the time to buy his foot down, real estate is at its lowest after the crisis of 2015/2016 and restarts in 2017. The next convertibility of the dirham will mechanically cause a devaluation this Which will favor all investments in foreign currency.
