In an attitude of defiant power, the brand new kasbah-mansion perches on the edge of its cliff, daring the wild-alive ocean to reach up against the rockface.
Nicole has put all her love of Moroccan buildings and finishes into her southern kasbah: floors are sensual-soft bejmat or old-style tiles, walls are beautifully smooth-hued tadelakt, the patio is wafer bricks, the double-height hall it topped by a high dome, the library is the quite spot you may need from time to time.
Arches and high, carved antique Marrakchi doors are everywhere, a magnificent four-pillared fireplace brings extra punch to the dining room, the salon, with two more fireplaces, leads out to the excellent brick terrace and the patio gives the house a perfect heart. Bedrooms, each in a different style (African, Fassi, Art Deco,), have space and comfort to spare, carefully-chosen furnishings and bathrooms.
Most have their fireplace and terrace, too. And at every turn, from every window, a view to die for. An ideal base for exploring the coast, north and south, and the unsung delights of the Anti-Atlas.
For those of you who have decided to travel in a different way, to return to an old and natural way of living, these stone houses with unending views over the sea are another kind of invitation to travel; built stone upon stone, with their traditional wooden ceilings and ancient doors, where everything has been chosen for its history but also your comfort.
