Delightful Architectural Nooks and Crannies
Posted on October 30, 2008 by James Robbins
We thoroughly enjoyed being a reasonable way out of Marrakech. There was a feeling of being among the real people of Morocco and a walk to the nearby Kasbah was a fascinating experience. The locals seem friendly and the children ever-optimistic with their ‘Bonjour – dinars?’ One can only feel affection for Tigmi itself. It is full of delightful architectural nooks and crannies. Its florid courtyards offer peaceful shady retreats and the views from its terraces keep you gazing out across the hills and villages, listening for distant sounds like the shout of a shepherd or a grumbling donkey. The staff at Tigmi, smilingly unhurried but thoroughly obliging add to the general sense of douceur which pervades the place. We also found the food simple but excellent.
