The market in Asni is exciting and Ouirgane is one of those places on Earth that makes you want to stay!
A day in the Atlas mountains is a must when isiting Marrakech. So near and yet so very different and spectacular. The drive through the winding hills and charming Berber villages is a pleasure in itself. The market in Asni operates on Saturday and is really worth the visit. You will see all sorts of things being sold there from animals vegetables to jewelry and second hand plumbing! If you do this excersion on a Tuesday you will visit the market of Tahnaoute instead.
We suggest lunch at Chez Momo (a small and friendly hotel and restaurant) in the village of Ouirgane. From there you can go for a wander by foot or a donkey ride in the peaceful countryside of the valley, visit the huge resevoir recently built or go horse riding from La Roseraie (a lovely hotel in the village).
Return to Marrakech by around 4 pm.
