No trip to Morocco would be complete without either visiting or staying in a Kasbah. They are the epitome of Morocco with their high walls made with mud and straw. The best examples of Kasbahs tend to be found in the High Atlas Mountains and in the remote south of the country, in an area known as the 'root of 1000 Kasbahs.'

Whilst on her travels in Morocco, Cassandra stayed in the amazing Dar Ahlam Kasbah in Skoura (pictured above). With a name that translates to 'house of dreams' it is no surprise that the Dar Ahlam hotel in Morrocco is one of Cassandra's favourites.

The 200 year old fortified kasbah in southern Moroccan palmeraie, is the most beautifully designed hotel with hand-embroidered bed linen, hand-shaped ceramic lamps and Louis Benech gardens that stretch behind the house.
