Location

Taroudant

Taroudant is a “Little Marrakech” due to the backdrop of the High Atlas Mountains and its red town walls, which are more complete than those of any other Moroccan town. This Berber market town is little frequented by tourists,  providing an authentic experience of everyday life and is an ideal base from which to explore Berber countryside.

Tafraoute

Tafraoute is a small town in a breathtaking setting of the boulder strewn pink hued mountains of the Anti Atlas. It is accessed by winding, scenic mountain roads from the Atlantic coast or from Taroudant and Agadir to the north.

Mirleft

Mirleft is a friendly and busy little village with several cafes and a fabulous unspoiled beach suitable for surfing. There is not much of note in the village itself, but the air is fresh, the isolation fantastic and the views of the Atlantic beautiful.

The Anti-Atlas

The most distinct and varied of the Atlas mountain ranges provides an important barrier against the Sahara which lies to its south. This mountain area offers spectacular landscapes, fantastic walking, a tempting climate and a legendary welcome from the local Berbers.
