Overview

Amizmiz Cottage Rental Photos and Description

It is located on the foothills of the Haut-Atlas 37 km away from Marrakech on a 1.3 hectare ground in the middle of nature with a small heaven and a chilling area to share. Two tiguemis (Berber houses) are for rent. The tiguemis are typical, traditional houses which are built in clay, stone, reed and wood. We have been waiting for two years to recuperate ancient doors and windows necessary to the construction of the tiguemis. The tiguemis with their adobe walls and their clay roofs are harmoniously integrated to the site. Our tiguemis are appointed for four people. They offer beautiful spaces with a Berber decoration, handmade furniture, coloured carpets, bibelots and local paintings.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Absolutely perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5
We cannot rate this house highly enough. The pictures really do not do it justice. The house was clean and well maintained. There is a guard/handyman/cook about all the time who was lovely. The dog was also very friendly and calm.

The 3 houses in this compound are absolutely stunning, done up so they are comfortable but authentic. The area was beautiful, we enjoyed the roof terrace above the outside dining area, and the pool area is beautiful. We took advantage of the cooked meals which were all amazing, incredibly tasty Moroccan food.

The village is peaceful and surrounded by beautiful views of the Atlas Mountains. There was plenty of interesting wildlife, tortoises, geckos, frogs, birds etc.

The village has a tiny shop where we bought water, baklava, bread, fruit & veggies. The nearby town had everything else we needed.

Nothing was too much trouble for Rachida and her husband. They gave us some suggested trips, the mountain roads and the waterfalls at Setti Fatma were easy to find and so beautiful. We rented a car, however, Rachida arranged for a lovely man to pick us up from the airport and drove with us which was really helpful as finding it on our own would have been tricky the first time! He also gave us some tips about where to get it washed etc.

We have recommended to all our friends and family as the best way to visit Morocco. We had a wonderful 5th Wedding Anniversary here. I also think it would be suitable for families as the houses are cool and comfortable and the gardens an oasis.

Get away from mainstream tourism!

  • 5 of 5
Sick of the tourist industry in Marrakech? If you want to experience Moroccan village life, look no further! The cottage is located on a very well maintained compound just outside of a tiny village, surrounded by the stunningly beautiful Atlas mountains. It's a great place to explore the nature and to experience life in the country side. Walk to the village store for some small basic groceries, or walk to the main road (about 15 minutes) and stop a shared taxi to Agrab, where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and anything else you need (for non tourist prices). We stayed a week with our 2 young children (2 and 4 years old) and enjoyed the pool, the sunny terrace and the hospitality of the owner. There are 2 similar vacations homes on the compound, so if these are booked you'll have to share some of the facilities. There is a very friendly dog on the compound, but our children were afraid of her, so keep this in mind if this applies to you too.
Overall, this place was the best part of our 2,5 week trip to Morocco!

Super endroit !

  • 5 of 5
C'est un endroit de rêve, tout simplement. Le dépaysement est total, dans un environnement magnifique ( les montagnes de l'Atlas, les villages berbères). Nous sommes accueillis chaleureusement par Rachida qui ne ménage pas ses efforts pour que l'on passe un séjour délicieux. L'hébergement est conçu pour s'intégrer parfaitement : ce sont de petites maisons traditionnelles avec tout le confort, décorées avec beaucoup de goût. Dur, dur, de repartir!

Un havre de paix et de bien être, un vrai moment de bonheur et de détente.
Nous sommes restés 15 jours avec ma femme et mon fils de 6 ans. Un grand merci à Rachida pour son accueil et son hospitalité. Omar un personnage formidable avec son pain chaud tous les matins et le nettoyage de la piscine, Fadma adorable et d'une grande gentillesse notre nid était toujours hyper propre, merci aussi à vous deux car c'est un ensemble de personnes qui nous ont permis d'avoir un séjour fabuleux. Les berbères sont des personnes magnifique, nous reviendrons et bravo pour avoir créer un paradis dans un lieu si magnifique. Nous vous disons, à bientôt et Mathis. Dur dur de quitter sans nostalgie cet endroit, Mathis notre fils avait le cafard dans l'avion et à tout simplement dit j'aime le Maroc et ces gens. Rien à rajouter allez-y, même en été les journées sont chaudes et les nuits sont légèrement balayés par un petit vent plus frais. Nous avons visités des souks berbères rien à voir avec Marrakech, ici on est dans l'authentique, il y a plein de choses à voir.
Rachida, merci pour la leçon de cuisine, je vais faire un super couscous pour ma famille et mes amis. Mathis Marie-Laure et moi nous vous embrassons tous et un gros bisous de Mathis pour Aida l'adorable chienne. Ce n'est qu'un au revoir Inch'Allah.

Nous recommandons à tout le monde de séjourner chez Rachida, y compris les familles avec enfants. C'était le premier grand voyage avec notre fils de 2 ans et demi, et tout a été parfait : le cadre (souvenir ému de notre première ballade, à quelques minutes à pied de la maison, au soleil couchant), l'accueil de Rachida et de tout le personnel, le confort, la piscine (la partie "pataugeoire" de la piscine, c'est une super idée pour les tout petits)… Et le propriété de Rachida est très bien située pour explorer la région de l'Ourika, Marrackech, l'Atlas… Bref, on a passé une semaine de rêve. Allez-y !

que du bonheur!

  • 5 of 5
Après plusieurs voyages au Maroc, notre premier séjour au avec notre fille de 14 mois. Idéal pour cette première. Le domaine de Rachida et Alain est magnifique, les villages et les montagnes autour également. Les gîtes sont irréprochables. Et le plus, les petits soins de Omar et Hafida, l'accueil chaleureux, convivial et les conseils avisés de Rachida et Alain, qui connaissent bien la région et qui se rendent toujours disponibles pour leurs hôtes. Tout est possible autour: ballades à pied à partir du gîtes, souk à 10 minutes de voiture, excursion sur la journée au pied du Toukbal, la vallée de Setti Fatma...Bref, une semaine, c'était trop court! On reviendra! Nous recommandons grandement cette location pour la découverte de ce Maroc rural!
Pierre, Nathalie et Juliette

From your doorstep, you can go on beautiful hikes and discover many Berber villages surrounding the Amrhlij Village. A few hours away from the village is a well-appointed ski resort called Loukeimeden at 3200 m of altitude. Toubkal, the highest mountain of Morocco of 4167 m to make on three days for those who love climbing; is just wonderful. Essaouira is Morocco’s Brittany. You will find several souks. A famous trader market is in Scorpion 6 km away from the house. You will find a lake for those who love fishing and nice restaurant. The natural bridge is wonderful for those who love taking pictures from where there are beautiful pictures to take. We propose you various activities: tadelakt course (coloured lime plaster), pottery course, kitchen traineeship, line fishing, Berber cooking classes as well as a course for making Berber rugs, quad biking, skiing, cycling, and trekking in 4x4 in the south.
