We stayed at Kasabat Annour(aka Dar Tourkia) for two nights in March and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the welcoming hosts, Tourkia and Vanessa (very interesting and fun women). First, the food is amazing. Absolutely the best we had in Morocco by far. We ordered more vegetable and voila, carrots in exotic spices, delicious roasted eggplant, an excellent tangine of chicken and veggies with loads of spices. We absolutely loved the breakfasts, too. No need to search around the town looking for food! The setting is indeed dreamlike, nestled in the city walls with a lovely pool (too cold in March) and close to the town, but far enough away to be quiet. If you can arrange your stay to coincide with the Sunday market (Taroudant is a genuine market town, with real local people buying and selling sheep and goats, selling loads and loads of fresh produce, etc...), please do so. It's well worth it. The town can be seen in one day, including the laid back souks. We bought some spices from a very friendly shop owner and weren't bothered at all by the aggressiveness that is prevalent in Marrakech. In short, it was a pleasure walking the streets, sitting in a cafe and observing the locals. At the end of the day or even during the day, Tourkia's place is peaceful, idyllic and relaxing. You can simply do nothing and feel very happy about it! Vanessa and Tourkia are great hosts and the staff is loyal and committed. We had a flat tire and the 'gate man' took us to a local garage for repairs. I think it cost 5 dollars. The only downside is we arrived after a period of heavy rain--luckily we missed it--and the room was a bit damp. The bedding felt damp, too, but this is more a result of the high humidity. Our advice would be to run a dehumidifier in the rooms after such periods. It was only an issue our first night. The rooms are big and clean. We spent most of our time outside next to the pool. Oh, I forgot to mention our romantic candlelight dinner in the garden one evening--all alone. And, the lovely breakfasts (nice omelet on Sunday morning). We highly recommend Dar Tourkia (stay for a week for maximum relaxation), Taroudant and Morocco in general.We had a lovely two weeks driving from Marrakech to Taroudant, to the coast, to Tafraout (great area) and back to Marrakech over the High Atlas. We'll be back soon and will definitely be visiting Taroudant and Tourkia and her team again.
