Kasbah Ait Ben Damiette overview

Kasbah Ait Ben Damiette was built in the 1950s and painstakingly restored by its new French owners in 2010. It is located in Skoura village, near the High Atlas. There are 12 guest rooms, all en-suite, decorated in ornate Moroccan style with richly coloured fabrics, wall painted in warm tones and tiled floors. Individual climate control can keep rooms warm in the winter months and cool in the summer. The 4 suites are larger and can accommodate extra beds if needed. Rooms have views of the gardens, oasis, desert or Atlas Mountains.
The restaurant serves Moroccan and French cuisine made from ingredients grown in the kasbah's vegetable garden or bought in the local market. Bread is baked on site - the aromas a sign that breakfast is ready, a feast of fresh fruits, home-made jams, yoghurts, crepes and pastries as well as bread. You can enjoy this first meal of the day in the restaurant, in the central courtyard with its pretty fountain, or by the pool. Delicious dinners are accompanied by fine wines, enjoyed by candle and lamplight.
Relaxation areas include a cosy lounge where you can chat to other guests and watch TV. Recreational facilities include a large outdoor pool, children's pool, petanque piste and table tennis. While here you should visit the roof terrace for some fine panoramic views. 
While here you can explore Skoura oasis on foot and by 4x4 vehicle, take excursions into the surrounding areas to see gorges, valleys and kasbahs, and take trips into Ouarzazate.
