Responsible tourism: Atlas Mountains accommodation nr Imlil, Morocco

This Kasbah was built by local workers. Apart from the owner, the staff is from the local village. All of our supplies (food, interiors etc) are bought from the local village. Local mules can be hired. Medicine and clothes are collected and distributed to the local community. The supplies are sent mostly by clients who have visited us. Rachida, the local Manager of the Kasbah distributes both clothes and medicine directly to the local women for their children. Many of the clothes are generoulsy sent by past guests of the Kasbah. We organize monthly rubbish collection sessions with the village children to keep the surroundings clean.

We contributed 5000DHS towards the cost of a septic tank in the village and is also part of the 'Tidy Village Operation.' The Kasbah uses energy efficient light bulbs, turns off lights, uses candlelight in the main house and fireplaces for heating. Please note that we now have 3 more rooms in the gardens which all have electricity. Our garden is organic and organic waste is composted and fed to the animals.

Excellent. Both Douar Samra and Riad Samsara are wonderful places to stay. We were looked after and the food deserves a special mention. The arrival at Douar Samra in the evening to discover our candle lit room was magical. Read full review

Jacqueline’s house is the perfect place to stay and made our trip to the Atlas mountains a very special one. We loved being able to sit on the roof terrace and enjoy the wonderful views in the daytime and the amazing stars at night. Read full review

It was great... I'm really impressed with how Jacqueline has restored these properties so sympathetically, and local people were absolutely in charge. The relationship with the Berber villagers was clearly one of mutual trust and benefit. Read full review

Most memorable were spending the evening eating and drinking in the candlelight and then laying in bed with the log fire burning in the room and the morning spent walking in the mountains. The light was so clear and the scenery amazing. Read full review
