Charming and biblical village setting only 24km from Marrakech. Tigmi is the ultimate simple Berber retreat with views to take your breath away.
Tigmi sits on the brow of a hill in a small Berber hamlet called Tagadert, 24 km from the heart of Marrakech overlooking the Hoauz plane. Marrakech is visible on the horizon.
A collection of traditional Berber village houses interlaced by colourful and well-tended garden courtyards. Rooms and suites are nestled into the earth constructions and decorated with simple wooden ceilings made from ucalyptus branches, whitewashed walls and simple, white bathrooms crafted from earth and covered with tadelakt (polished limestone finish).
Meals are served on one of the terraces, in the garden by the pool or, if you prefer, on a rooftop overlooking the High Atlas Mountains. A feeling of magic is present in this stunning location and one can barely remember the madness of the modern world after a couple of nights in this truly natural and relaxing place. Most of the staff are village locals and they serve you with a simplicity that is charming and pleasant.
One can go to town for an evening meal at one of Marrakech's many restaurants or perhaps choose to remain in the enchanting simplicity of Tigmi and enjoy simple Moroccan dishes.
TIGMI was designed and built in 2000 by Max Lawrence (Lawrence of Morocco Ltd) and was sold in 2007 to its new owners who then added the new half of the hotel taking it from small retreat of only 9 rooms to a country hotel of 21 rooms.
Max Lawrence continues to build village houses like Tigmi in the same village of Tagadert and has two lovely small houses for sale. Click here to visit them in our property section.
