On the one hand I would not like to see more tourists visit Bhalil. It was the most authentic, unspoilt village with unique traditions and cave dwellings. I hope that it can remain unspoilt. On the other hand, it is a fascinating destination, not far from Fez and worth the visit. Kamal is a well travelled, responsible tourist operator who gives back to the community and seems prepared to spearhead eco travel in the village. The guest house contains many Moroccan treasures. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the food cooked by Naima was fabulous. Kamal and Naima are very generous hosts.

At first the sight of Bhalil was a shock. The litter is a real problem. It does look like a third world town. But beneath the ugliness there is a beauty to be discovered. For instance we were shown a cave house that had been lived in by an artist and was now being kept as an attraction. It was like being in a Dali painting. There are apparently 500 cave houses in this town but most are unrestored. A guided tour is necessary to find these cave houses. The Guest house is nice. We had dinner with Kamal and his chef. Great Moroccan home cooking. Breakfast was served on the rooftop terrace. He told us about his plans to restore and renew Bhalil. His passion is quite infectious. His dream is to clean up this little village and turn it into the gem it could so easily become. I wish him luck!

Bhalil is a small town in the middle Atlas mountains. You can visit the cave dwellings in Bhalil with Kamal and he will explain about local life. We also walked to Sefrou which is nearby and has a large medina. If you want you can easily visit Fes from Bhalil. The highlight was a 28 km walk through the mountains with Kamal and two other guests. As he speaks Arabic, French, German and English he can translate between guests if necessary. Evening meals (cooked by Naima) are around a large table and are highly recommended.

Kamal is the best tour guide I've had over several trips to Morocco. He's super passionate about his country and its people, history and culture. He provides deeply authentic visits that include lots of spontaneous contact with locals. I highly recommended spending a day on a local tour with Kamal!
Kamal and his house manager Naima even took us with them to the public hammam in Sefrou which was a delightful experience!

The guesthouse itself is simple. It's not spacious, but the rooftop terrace is fantastic. The food cooked by Naima was some of the best we had in Morocco. Top notch hospitality.

Room tip: The uppermost room next to the Tera e is the most private.
