Make A Holiday Rental House in Ouirgane, Morocco, Your Home Away From Home

Although not off the tourist radar, Ouirgane still retains the charm and culture of a traditional village nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. A holiday in Ouirgane is for those people that do not need to be surrounded by a modern city setting, and instead prefer to see a more authentic side to Morocco. That said, a holiday rental house in Ouirgane is still equipped with all the mod-cons that make life easy, presenting you with the best of both worlds! Use your self catering accommodation in Ouirgane as a base from which to explore the surrounding area, and enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

Things to Do on Holiday in Ouirgane, Morocco

A holiday in Ouirgane is especially suitable for those people that enjoy the great outdoors. The Atlas Mountains dominate the beautiful landscape, and here, there are many trails to be followed either on foot or even on donkey. There are dozens of Berber villages scattered throughout the area, and whilst it is better to hike to them, there are also 4 wheel drive tours available. Nature lovers will also enjoy staying at a holiday rental house in Ouirgane, as they are given the chance to observe birds and other animals native to the region.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Ouirgane, Morocco

There are many places to visit whilst on holiday in Ouirgane, and a starting point should be one of the surrounding Berber villages, where time seems to have stood still. A trip to Tizi n’test should also be made, as this is the highest pass in Morocco, and affords some truly spectacular views. Along the road from your holiday rental house in Ouirgane to Tizi n’Test you should also visit the mosque at Tinmal, the only one that non-muslims are allowed to visit. If you tire of the mountains and would like a change, then a day trip to Marrakesh should be considered. This is quite a fascinating city, and well worth the trip even if you were just to visit the world famous souk (market). Although Marrakesh is 90 minutes away, it is possible to take a bus there, so hiring a car is not entirely necessary.

Weather in Ouirgane, Morocco

The weather in Ouirgane is extremely pleasant when compared to some of the lowland areas of Morocco, which can become uncomfortably hot during the peak summer months. Because of its altitude you can expect warm summers and mild winters. A jumper or coat might be needed at night on occasion, even during the summer, and are almost always needed during the winter. The warmest month of the year is July, and this is also the driest. Expect daytime temperatures of high-twenties degrees Celsius during this period, whilst during the winter, the coldest months are December and January. Late spring or early autumn can be the best time of year to visit, when the temperature is not too hot, and tourists fewer.

Travel to Ouirgane, Morocco

Marrakesh (sometimes spelt Marrakech) is the home of Morocco’s largest international airport (RAK). British Airways offer regular flights into here from London Gatwick (LGW), and Thomson Airways also offer flights coming out of Manchester (MAN). Public transportation is available from the airport, and it is also possible to hire a vehicle should you so desire.

Very relaxed vibe in a very unspoilt area, delicious food, basic but comfortable house and greatpool

4 of 5
Laurence, Fatima and Jawad looked after us really well. Our girls loved it especially the pool and all the cats, kittens (some were even born in their room, our fault for leaving the door open!) and dogs. We hadn't realised we'd be sharing the pool that perhaps could have been made clearer. Also we were staying in a different house from the one in the photos but we're very comfortable all the same and loved having our delicious suppers on our roof with the stunning views of the mountains and fields all around. Treks with Latifa were a definite highlight. Highly recommend coming to this blissfully unspoilt area with the friendliest people!

friendly village, well equipped house, helpful hosts, beautiful area

4 of 5
We stayed at the house early in the new year, which is a very cold time in the mountains. Between the houses electric heaters and a well supplied fire, loads of bedding and several hours of sunshine a day on the roof, we did ok and were warm enough to enjoy the evenings inside. The hot water was not working brilliantly but the hosting neighbours brought us a big kettle to make water hot on the gas. The olive harvest was in full swing in the village & oil being pressed by mule locally every day. There are many beautiful walks nearby. The one thing I might mention is that the house does not receive much sunshine (maybe a good thing in summer!) & you can hear the road (not a big problem). The house was beautifully clean and the kitchen well equipped. Thank you.
