then Les Terrasses de l’Atlas is the place for you!

The Berber guesthouse “Les Terrasses de l’Atlas” is situated in the heart of the High Atlas Mountains, 45 minutes to the north of Taroudant, one and a half hours from Agadir airport and half a day’s travelling from Marrakech.

With its breath-taking views over the lush green oasis of Mount Afensou and the impressive summits of the High Atlas Mountains rising to 3,500 metres at this point, “Les Terrasses de l’Atlas” offers you an exotic holiday beyond compare in rustic surroundings, in a way that is in tune with the Berber way of life, whilst still retaining the comfort sought by western visitors.

This traditional earth and stone dwelling offers an idyllic location for restful holidays in the sun, with opportunities for day trips from Agadir or Taroudant, and a perfect starting point for mountain activities, adapted to your needs and away from the crowds.

Please book in advance ! You can contact Luc by phone (+212 661 09 06 04) or by email (horscircuit@hotmail.com).

In the heart of the High Atlas

 

Luc and his Berber wife, Hafida, will welcome you with simplicity in a family atmosphere. The guesthouse is situated uphill from an underground spring, creating an all-year-round mountain stream, good for swimming and providing a relaxing background murmur. The house has original-style bedrooms and panoramic terraces built around interconnecting interior courtyards, enabling you to get away from it all very quickly. The food is innovative and typical of the region, tantalising your taste buds.

Your hosts will eat with you (if you so wish), as this is a real guesthouse providing a traditional table d’hôte menu, such as you rarely see in the guesthouses and Riads flourishing in Marrakesh and Taroudant.



“Les Terrasses de l’Atlas” guesthouse is appreciated by families with children, lone voyagers in search of something new and walkers of all levels alike. It offers a wide choice of activities for everyone and these should keep you happy and occupied over the course of a week.

The house is organised on a flexible basis with the owner attentive to your every need and full of ideas. With his charming wife, Hafida, you will be in very good hands. They aim to create a relaxed atmosphere and this guesthouse will never be overrun with crowds, as the emphasis is on quality, not quantity, in terms of interaction and provision.

Leave your watch at the bottom of your suitcase and switch off your phone. Forget your western ways and the stress of your job, and make the most of what we provide for children. In fact, why not come and see for yourself!



N.B. This isn’t a hotel where you can turn up at the last minute! In fact, Afensou isn’t the sort of place where you would wash up by chance … It’s essential to reserve in advance.

Activity ideas

A holiday in Morocco brings relaxation and taking it easy to mind. In an exotic environment like this, there’s nothing better than spending a holiday in Morocco, reading a book in a hammock, basking in the sunshine on the panoramic terraces or enjoying a massage while looking out over the mountains!

For you, Tourism in Morocco could mean getting away from the beaten track and meeting and engaging with Berber people, worlds away from mass tourism. We offer visits to private homes (my wife, Hafida’s family among others) in complete simplicity and often on the spur of the moment. Here, you will be offered tea and food will be brought to make an impromptu traditional meal. You could also see a potter turn his wheel, farmers pressing olives or women cracking argan nuts. For a successful holiday in Morocco, you don’t have to go trekking or hiking, or take up extreme sports!

You can’t manage long walks? Well, our 4 by 4s are available for taking you off to the back of beyond to tackle mountain slopes, while you enjoy the Moroccan hinterland.

Fancy a night camping in the wild? You will be spoilt for choice of panoramic sites if you do, all of them selected to suit your physical fitness levels. A delicious meal round a camp fire, looking up at mountains rising to over 3,500 metres. An incomparable way of spending a holiday in Morocco.

For the sportier person, there is a wide choice of unparalleled hikes and treks across Morocco, where you will certainly never meet another tourist! There’s also the possibility of roaming on mountain bikes with the back-up of 4 by 4s, or making your way up small canyons through raging waters, with swimming par for the course in places!
