After rockin’ the Kasbah to find it, I opened the door into the charming Dar Nour Guesthouse. The “House of Light” is actually five houses connected by passageways and flights of stairs leading to its seven guest rooms and the rooftop terraces that overlook the Bay of Tangier on one side and the city on the other.
The current owners are French—an archaeologist, Catherine Arlaud, a journalist, Philippe Chaslot, and an architect, Jean-Olivier Arfeuillère. They have filled the cozy rooms with intriguing artwork, gorgeous textiles, and vintage Moroccan treasures.
Style. Moment. Heaven.
This is my room.
And the view from my bed. Divine.
At dusk I stood on the rooftop terrace watching the sun set.
It was Ramadan, and fasting was over for the day—it was time to worship.
Then the moon rose dramatically above the horizon, and the soul stirring sounds of the call to prayer floated up from mosques all over Tangier.
It was magnificent.
This is why I travel.
