An immersion in an oasis between the Atlas and the Dades Valley
About forty kilometres from Ouarzazate, at the feet of the High Atlas, the Skoura palm grove offers with its 1100 metres of altitude all the freshness of a huge mountain oasis. Beautiful walks through labyrinths of luxuriating garden in the shade of palm and fruit trees that extend as far as the eye can see into the depths of the valley. Walking up the oued (river), you’ll discover a number of kasbahs, earthen citadels with impressive architecture, particularly those of Ben Moro and Amerdil that are well worth the detour.
Oasis Nomad Camp
After a long crossing over a plateau of black rock, your arrival to the campsite is a totally unexpected. Even more unexpected, finding, in such an isolated site, such luxurious accommodations…The camp is made up of ten tents, well spaced out, a restaurant under a Berber tent, and a comfortable sitting room library. Every room is a nomadic (khaima) tent, comfortable and well equipped: rugs, armchairs, shelves, trunks for storing things and two beds. The tents are all set up using traditional local materials. The decoration is light coloured and minimalistic to contrast with the warm tones of the tents and the richness of their fabric, woven by hand by the artisans of the Aït Atta tribe. There is a shower/restroom area built in Adobe and tadelakt located at the heart of the camp for your convenience (hot water). The dining room is also very comfortable with beautiful tablecloths and dishware. The waiters are sharply dressed and the typically Moroccan dishes are refined. The staff of 8, with 2 cooks and a guide see to it that the camp runs perfectly smoothly.
An inn in the Palmeraie
On a hill looking over the Skoura palmeraie and the Dades Valley, there is a haven of peace whose views look out over palms, mountains and desert. This comfortable inn in a traditional house of typical architecture for the region is owned by Abdelmoula Talout a native of the village. 7 rooms and one suite, all air conditioned. A beautiful terrace witgh an unparalleled view over the Skoura.
