Kasbah du Toubkal is a stunning rural retreat in a peaceful mountain setting with views of North Africa's tallest mountain, Toubkal. Converted from an old fortified house, the former home of the local caid, this hidden gem offers homely hospitality and expert knowledge of the area from the Berbers who run it. Breathtaking views in every direction, locally made furniture and friendly service make this a great escape from the hectic pace of everyday life. There is no traffic here, no fast food restaurants, no smelly or polluted city air, just the braying of the mules, the rush of water over the rocks, the sounds of the villagers living their lives and the ethereal call to prayer from the local mosque echoing over the valleys and bouncing off the rock walls. Breathe in the fresh air, take a relaxing break in the Hammam or embark on a bracing walk in the mountains. Whatever you do, you will leave feeling refreshed and at ease.
Kasbah du Toubkal is a magical venue in a very special location, part of the local national park and part of the local community. This mountain retreat is managed and staffed by local people, providing the best of local food an in-house hammam, trekking and camel riding. There are a variety of climbing and trekking packages on offer from climbing Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa at 13,655 ft, to overnight treks with local guides and mules to help along the way, and walks in the High Atlas with options that cater for those who may desire an easier ramble.
The menu at Kasbah du Toubkal is Moroccan and the chefs are happy to create a vegetarian menu on request. Tajines and homemade soups will hit the spot after a day in the mountains.
