TROGLOS SUD MAROC :
 
FISHERMEN’S CAVES IN MOROCCO
                      TROGLO DUNE, BATO TROGLO & ATLANTIC TROGLO
AGLOU, TIZNIT, MAROC
 
YOUR HOSTS :
Renée and Patrick have been focused and passionated on searching and informing about the troglodytes and caves dwellings all over the world.
They own The Troglos Verts guest house, a troglodyte house near Saumur, in the  Loire Valley, France,  and manage the Troglonautes website dedicated to the underground living and activities. They have founded the association La Troglotheque to be visited in Turquant near Saumur.
 
Check the websites and blogs : www.troglonautes.com  ; www.troglotheque.com  ;

They keep travelling in troglodytes landscapes and cave dwellings in China, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Greece… When they discovered the fishermen’s caves in Aglou, they decided to settle down in this ideal location and bought  three caves which are now open to the welcomed guests.
 
OVERVIEW OF THE CAVES :
The TROGLO DUNE, BATO TROGLO and ATLANTIC TROGLO are located in an exceptional natural site, along the Atlantic coast, near Aglou beach resort, Tiznit province, 100 km south of Agadir. They are based inside the National Park of Souss Massa, famous for birds preservation. The caves are digged inside the cliff rocks over a large and wild beach. The landscape behind the caves is made of dunes and dry wild fields where shepards wander with sheeps and camels. The caves have basic but have confortable amenities. However, they are not recommended to the persons who are looking for standards hotel way of life. Access is not easy for people with mobility issues. Small children should be looked after. The guests should be aware of the non stop day and night sound of the waves. You love it or you hate it !
The caves are dedicated to the persons who are looking for a sanctuary in symbiosis with Nature and a total experience of living in the wilderness, far away from the modern societies. An unforgetable experience.
 
Which of the three caves should you choose ?
The Troglo Dune has an upgraded confort with solar electricity (12v only), and an authentic hammam…
Since there is a wall around the terrace, it is recommended to families with young children, security wise.
The Atlantic Troglo and the Bato Troglo do not have any electricity and offer a wonderful experience of candles lighting nights.
The Bato Troglo is very compact, like a bungalow, ideal for a romantic stay for two. His balcony over the beach provides the illusion of a boat trip.
The Atlantic Troglo has a large terrace and gets the sun early in the morning (ideal in Winter).
The Troglo Dune and Atlantic Troglo can welcome 6 persons, the Bato Troglo has a capacity for 4 maximum.
The Bato Troglo and Troglo Dune are next to each other. The Atlantic Troglo is 150m further on the same beach.
You can also rent the 3 caves for a total of 16 guests.
