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.

                                                          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.

                                                          Super villa in staggering location near Marrakech

                                                          L’Amandier resort in the Atlas Mountains will, once completed, consist of 12 villas and a boutique hotel. It is scheduled to open as a fully functioning resort later this year, although the swimming pool is usable now. Villa No 7, where I was lucky enough to spend a few days in February, is probably in the best location being at the far end of the complex with a neighbouring villa only on one side. From its rear terrace there are the most staggering views up to the mountains which, when I was there, were snowcapped – a fabulous feature against a blue, blue sky. The villa has three double bedrooms looking on to a pretty central courtyard, each one with its own large bathroom. The very generously proportioned main living area runs the length of the rear of the house, with floor to ceiling glass doors leading on to a west facing terrace with a plunge pool, looking on out to that fabulous view. No better place from which to watch the sunset over the mountains, unless perhaps from the roof terrace above, with its intimate Bedouin-style pergola. Quality modern furnishings, along with a fully fitted kitchen, give Villa No 7 a contemporary feel, with some standout locally sourced pieces to remind us that Morocco is a country rich in traditional craftsmanship as well as glorious landscapes. I can’t wait to go back!

                                                          Paradise in Real Morocco

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          This was our second holiday at Tiguimi. It is a real piece of paradise. We loved it so much the first time, we went back (we rarely go back to the same place twice, however good it is!). It was even better the second time around. Rachida, and her team; Hafida and Omar are so warm and welcoming. We walked in the mountains during the morning - after Hafida's lovely homemade flakey flatbreads and tea made from herbs from the garden (perfect!). Afternoons spent by the pool, looking at the stunning mountains - we will never tire of that view! Dinners cooked by Hafida were always excellent - we love good food and our expectations were surpassed. We had great fun buying the ingredients and none of the hassle of cooking. The houses are immaculate and well cared for with real Berber rugs and decor. So comfortable and relaxing. Listening to the sounds of real Morocco. Rachida is a fellow animal-lover and I completely fell in love with the docile-donkey! We felt very safe in the mountains, villages, and local town. People were so friendly. We miss it already and looking to plan our third trip. Thank you Rachida, Hafida & Omar!
