We have just returned from our first visit to Morocco. We spent 7 days in hectic, but very interesting Marrakesh in a Riad and so planned the second week to be a quieter experience. Kasbah Agounsane certainly offered a relaxing and very enjoyable stay. We arranged for the hotel to pick us up from our first Riad, this was prompt and we had a pleasant drive about 40 mins from Marrakech. The hotel is set within the foothills of the Atlas mountains in the Ourika valley, the traditional, with a contemporary twist, architecture of the hotel is stunning as are the reception interiors and the rooms. We had a large room with walk in wardrobe and a great bathroom with a drench shower. The food was of a high quality and as my husband and I do not eat meat (fish and Vegetarian) Sylvie and Bruno, the owners, respected this and were willing to accommodate any alterations we felt necessary to the menu. The Moroccon Les Gris wine is a must to try and many a bottle was consumed on the beautiful terrace which overlooks the well maintained gardens, a lovely setting for most of our meals. We arranged a trip to the valley and the first waterfalls, our driver was Abdul who works at the hotel, he made the trip very enjoyable and was always willing to answer any of our questions about the things we saw. We asked Sylvie and Bruno about the local village market which was on the Monday and as they were going to buy provisions they took us along. This was a valuable and stimulating experience allowing us to see the true side of the area and its people, unhindered by any tourist trappings, thanks again to you both. We bought fresh spices, which were far superior to the ones in the Souk, assisted with the experienced guidance of Sylvie who speaks good English, French and Arabic. All the Staff made us feel very welcome and we wish to thank them all. We can highly recommend Kasbah Agounsane to anyone wishing to have a relaxing, battery charging holiday in a stunning setting. We will be back.
