INTO THE HIGH ATLAS MOUNTAINS OF MOROCCO…WITH NICE SHEETS

[TAMADOT, MOROCCO] — The drive from Marrakesh is only a little more than an hour, but you feel like you are a thousand miles away.

Really cool designs tucked into every square inch. Most of the living areas are outdoors, under thatched roofs and no windows. An incredible attentive staff looks after your every need. We
