Created with passion and a genuine love of the Atlas Mountains and the adventurous hilly Morocco, Kasbah Angour has been painstakingly yet meticulously constructed over a period of 5 years from the origin of sourcing a natural alpine water source to supply the Kasbah to the beautifully pruned gardens and personal service, Kasbah Angour is a Riad in the Atlas Mountains that provides a peaceful sanctuary to all those privileged to stay.
Crafted out of materials found a few meters from its location, plus solar panels for heating, Kasbah Angour is an ecological haven. The mortar for the local stoned walls has been taken from the nearby riverbed constructed perfectly into semi dry stonewalls.
Kasbah Angour has 22 bedrooms and 3 suites, all with panoramic views. The bedrooms and suites are constructed from traditional Moroccan materials: walls in local red sandstone; floors in hand made clay tiles from Meknes; windows and doors in cedar wood from the Middle Atlas Mountains; ceilings in wood and cane or plaster with sculpted cornices. The locally made furniture has Berber motifs. Comfort has not been overlooked. All of the bedrooms and suites have under-floor heating, air conditioning, telephone and free wireless internet. In addition, the suites have bars with countertop, fridge and sink. Most of the beds can be made up as two singles or one king size double.
The building of Kasbah Angour have been designed, along with underfloor heating, to retain heat in the winter, yet shed it in the hotter summer months leaving the property quite suitable and confortable throughout the calendar year. As much tradition has been kept as possible, with ceilings composed of bamboo and eucalyptus poles as has been so effective and necessary in age old Berber craft.
The onsite allotments at Kasbah Angour source the kitchen with daily fresh produce, all organic and understood upon tasting the wonderful and varied menu from the large restaurant area or café with optional seating inside and out.
A well located property, Kasbah Angour is at the gateway to several mountain trekking routes plus local Berber villages and only a 30 minute drive from the great city of Marrakech, also visible at the base of the gorge from Kasbah Angour on a clear day.
