Thank you, Jacqueline, for being such a wonderful host, and showing us the ropes in this magical city. The house was kept spotless by Hannan, whilst Riad Samsara's housekeeper Milouda mothered us and offered us meal after exotic meal of traditionally prepared Moroccan home-cooking. Dawn is announced by the call to prayer from the nearby mosque, and breakfast can be enjoyed on the roof terrace, with magnificent views all over the city to the Atlas mountains beyond.
Staying for two days at Riad Samsara showed us the urban style of living in Morocco, before heading to Jacqueline's mountain resort Douar Samra, where we enjoyed the same level of comfort and care, in a truly spectacular location at the heart of the small village of Tamatert, overlooking the valley and the village of Imlil below. We used Samra as a base from which to hike, including an overnight excursion up Jbel Toubkal.
This was a first trip to Morocco for both of us, and we look forward to returning to explore further. We enjoyed the sophistication of Samsara and the rustic charm at Samra.
