Galerie Souss: covered and open to the swimming pool

 

 

This open gallery is dedicated to the Souss, the river that gave its name to the region and whose bed, most often dry, is 3 kilometers north of the Jardin aux Etoiles. It measures 20 meters by three and is the entrance to the riad. It is an extremely pleasant place to be there both during the day - to find the freshness - and at night, as a shelter overlooking the illuminated pool.



The walls are in raw tadelakt, lighter on the ceiling than on the walls. The lamps are inverted terracotta lanterns from Sidi Bibi (south of Agadir). The gallery takes on its full dimension in the evening, when they are lit at the same time as the wall lights. The floor is covered with terracotta from Tamaloukt, an Atlas village nearTaroudant.



In doum

 

The sofa, the armchairs and the coffee table are made of Atlas doum. The doum is a small palm whose shepherds use the stems to transform them into a sort of cord, a guarantee of solidity. This expression of tradition adopts simple, therefore contemporary lines.

 

Blue and gray reversible cushions, handcrafted byweavers from Agadir, increase your comfort. At night, they are stored inthe Atlas Lounge, so as to be protected from the birds, which are so numerous in the Jardin aux Etoiles. They complement the cushions of the eight metal chairs in a beautiful harmony.

Latest equipment added in the Souss gallery:a very large wooden chest decorated with Berber motifs allows you to store mattresses for deckchairs, cushions for chairs, sofas and armchairs. This chest is surmounted by a Berber mask in finely chiseled stone.

The entrance door of the riad



The Souss gallery is also the gateway to the villa. On the left, an embossed copper plate includes the logo of your riad for rent, as well as three terracottas decorated with palm trees, moons and stars, and where succulents grow. 



The magnificent rectangular table with zelliges is installed sometimes in the gallery, sometimes aroundthe swimming pool, depending on the season. The eight iron chairs are covered with double-sided cushions, blue and light gray.



The gallery also occasionally serves as a setting for exhibitions by artists from the Agadir region. Currently, Khalid Assallami, a young Berber who revisits the Amazigh roots through stripping, if not abstraction.
