Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Asni, Morocco your home away from home

This Moroccan town has become the darling of many travellers from around the world mainly because it is the gateway to the world famous Atlas Mountains. Despite the sometimes scorching sun, many love to hike through the town, savouring its sights and sounds before heading up to the mountains. Luxurious 3 bedroom villas that overlook the sea and tastefully furnished apartments are some of the kinds of accommodation visitors can expect in this resort.

Things to do on holiday to Asni, Morocco

Hiking and mountain climbing are usually the main agenda for most of Asni’s visitors. From here they proceed to the mountain village of Imlil from where they can begin their ascent into the Atlas Mountains and on to Djebel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. But even before leaving the village, visitors can get stunning views of the Toubkal Mountain while still in Asni. The aroma from the numerous street cafes is sure to get the attention of visitors, especially after a day of traipsing about in 30+ temperatures. Most visitors enjoy the meat and vegetable tajines, a local delicacy. However, those looking for a refreshing pint will be disappointed as beer is sold nowhere in Asni. Though tourists can shop for items such as food and water (which it’s advisable to buy here in plenty for the mountain ascent), they should be on the lookout for street vendors who will try and sell them stuff they don’t need at exorbitant prices.

Places to visit on holiday to Asni, Morocco

Though there is not really much to grab the attention in Asni itself, there is a village as one travels further up into the mountains called Imlil. It serves as an excellent base from which to explore the High Atlas Mountains as well as being the place tourists are most likely to find their local guide. Sitting atop the Kasbah roof having a meal and peering into the majestic mountains is an experience most travellers will cherish.

Weather in Asni, Morocco

There is no other way to put it, the weather in this part of the world is simply hot, blazing hot. Summer highs can go up to a scalding 45°C with the sun shining intensely from a cloudless sky. Sunscreen, proper headgear and plenty of water are indispensible allies for those travelling to these parts. It can get quite cold in winter; lows of 5°C are not uncommon between December and January. Planning for rainy weather is futile; the place is dry for most of the year.

Travel to Asni, Morocco

Visitors angling for a stay at Asni will usually fly in via the Menara Airport in Marrakech. At this ultra-modern facility they will find transport in the form of public buses that arrive every half an hour or so and the ubiquitous taxi. The one-hour taxi ride to Asni should cost you about $20 but be sure to agree on the fare before you leave the parking lot.

The space was incredible with cool terraces, pretty gardens, stunning rooms and roof top views of the surrounding village and beyond to the Atlas Mountains. The swimming pool area was much used by our family and thoroughly enjoyed by our children. An early morning swim immediately took away the heat of the day. The property was excellently maintained and Saida, the lovely housekeeper effortlessly ensured the smooth and efficient running of the house, serving delicious meals with minimum fuss. Nothing was too much trouble and we all fell a little bit in love with her! The village was situated about 25k outside of Marrakesh and was a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Souks. It felt as though we had stepped back in time as we looked out on olive groves, goat herders and traditionally built homes. The villagers were welcoming, friendly and interested in us and the villa was sympatheically designed to totally blend in with its surroundings, only revealing its luxury to the inhabitants. The call to prayer punctuated our day (and night!) with its hauntingly beautiful cry. It was an experience which will live with us all for ever.

However Dar Zitouna is in a different league, it was every bit as special as our first visit and this is in no small part due to the fantastic staff, Mohamed, Nadia, Zahira, Hussain and the latest addition to the team Aisha. The villa is truly exceptional and combined with the amazing staff this makes for a truly memorable holiday, Although this was March we enjoyed many sunny days on the roof terrace, ideal location for breakfast with amazing views to the mountains, followed by some time doing nothing by the pool but reading and swimming. On the slightly cooler days Nadia would light the fire to warm and create a wonderful atmosphere in the house. As our previous visit we enjoyed Zahira's cooking for all of our stay and washed down with some rather nice red wine this was a great way to spend an evening. Mohammed would always bring some mint tea after the evening meal and this was the perfect way to wind down before retiring to our room. The villa has the perfect combination of understated luxury, combined with an amazing location, with a staff that are second to none. It really is one of our great holiday locations and it will probably be visited again before too long.
