    Chez Pierre

    At this chic retreat, 11 light-filled rooms and two, two-bedroom apartments are notched right into the gorge wall, with contemporary Moroccan decor, plant-filled terraces and a poolside sun deck. A rosy gorge sunset is the prelude to a drink at the bar and spectacular six-course dinners (Dh250) where Mediterranean cuisine meets seasonal Moroccan produce beside the snug wood-burning stove.

    Kasbah de Mimi

    Staying at this painstakingly restored cliffside bolthole is like being in the home of a friend with excellent taste: original artwork on the walls, antique furniture and a grand piano in the well-stocked library. Outside, there's a swimming pool, sun-filled patios and flower-filled terraces.

    Les 4 Saisons du Dades

    Book early for one of the four 'seasonal' rooms at Youssef Azrarag's welcoming guesthouse, where Amazigh (Berber) hospitality, vintage French furniture and bright local decor blend seamlessly. All the rooms overlook the lovely patio garden where numerous varieties of mountain mint and verveine perfume the air. After tough treks, collapse on Moroccan cushions in the large open-plan kitchen.

    Le Berbère de la Montagne

    At this peaceful spot, tent pitches overlook the river and come with a kitchen, laundry facilities, hot showers and toilets. The guesthouse sits within a few metres of the narrowest point of the gorge, where nine rooms are decorated with tataoui ceilings (made from reeds woven into intricate patterns), terracotta tiled floors and pine beds heaped with warm blankets.

    Chez L'Habitant Amazigh

    Spend a night at the Tair family home, and you'll get a warm introduction to Amazigh (Berber) life, with evening discussions of history and culture, followed by family music jams. Cheerfully decorated pink pisé (rammed-earth) rooms and exuberantly furnished salons can't compete with first-class terrace views over the river and valley rock formations. It's also a good place to arrange treks around the gorge.
