Stunning setting, wonderful friendly staff, delicious meals, convenient taxi service

  • 5 of 5

16 of us stayed for my 30th birthday and had the absolute best time. Laurence and her husband could not have been more welcoming or helpful. They provided all of our meals, bought wine for us and made us feel special, all the while leaving us very much to our own devises. We were very much in celebratory mood and were quite loud but they never interrupted our fun and simply were there when we needed them. Laurence booked us taxis into town, organised a trek in the Atlas Mountains with lunch (which I cannot recommend enough) and I only wish to come back some day. Thank you for making my birthday the best EVER. Emilee xxxx

Very relaxed vibe in a very unspoilt area, delicious food, basic but comfortable house and greatpool

  • 4 of 5

Laurence, Fatima and Jawad looked after us really well. Our girls loved it especially the pool and all the cats, kittens (some were even born in their room, our fault for leaving the door open!) and dogs. We hadn't realised we'd be sharing the pool that perhaps could have been made clearer. Also we were staying in a different house from the one in the photos but we're very comfortable all the same and loved having our delicious suppers on our roof with the stunning views of the mountains and fields all around. Treks with Latifa were a definite highlight. Highly recommend coming to this blissfully unspoilt area with the friendliest people!

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and my three year old daughter stayed here for four nights. We were given a grand welcome and felt very much like being welcomed home by family. Laurence made every effort to ensure that we were comfortable and was very accommodating. We did not rent a car and so Laurence arranged for a taxi to take us on a tour for one day where we did a camel ride and toured a lake near by. On another day Laurence herself dropped us off and picked us up at Amizmiz to get a taxi into Marrakech - way above and beyond. We did a day tour to the berber village(s) with Hicham which was amazing. The staff at the Dar was incredible and very child friendly. The food was excellent, delivered to our villa and we thought priced very well. The community surrounding the Dar was also incredibly to drink in, my daughter made fast friends with the family next door. The views surrounding this place were breathtaking. While we were there the poppies were in bloom mixed with green wheat against brilliant blue sky and snow capped mountains We highly recommend this rental and would love to return one day.

Calme et authenticité

  • 5 of 5

Après 10 jours entre Marrakech et Essaouira, on a adoré se poser ici et découvrir un autre rythme et un autre environnement. C'est calme, paisible et les environs sont magnifiques. La prochaine fois on se gardera plus de jours dans ce coin. Les enfants ont adoré les ballades en ânes, les villages berbères, la nature. Et le chien de Laurence!

Bonne continuation et à bientôt.

super endroit

  • 5 of 5

nous sommes tous bien rentrés, les uns à Lyon et les autres à Tours...

et nos habitudes reprennent peu à peu leur place !!!!!

beaucoup de souvenirs pour chacun de nous; une expérience inoubliable, c'est certain !!!! une réunion de famille qui ressert les liens !!!!

comme me le disait tout à l'heure une de mes filles ... " je ne peux pas dire quel est mon meilleur souvenir, quelle est ma meilleure image que je garde du Maroc, car il n'y a que des souvenirs extraordinaires et que des images aussi belles les unes que les autres "................

merci de nous avoir permis de voir ce Maroc authentique

merci au personnel si attentif à nos besoins ... et merci à vous Laurence !

Een oase in Marokko!

  • 5 of 5

Met een groep van 11 (volwassen) personen hebben we een fantastische week gehad aan de voet van de Atlas, op een uurtje rijden van Marrakesh.

De ‘compound’ ligt aan de rand van een authentiek dorpje, op 5 min rijden van het charmante stadje Amizmiz (bezoek de dinsdag-markt!). Met zeven kamers in 2 huizen waan je je in klein dorp met centraal een mooi verzorgd zwembad. De verzorging is sowieso uitstekend;

voor ontbijt (aanrader) en diner kan worden gezorgd. Laurence en haar personeel staan klaar om het de gasten fijn naar de zin te maken. Een ruime woonkamer met open haard maken ook de avonden een gezellig samenzijn.

De kamers zijn ruim en sfeervol ingericht; elke 2 kamers voorzien van een badkamer (warm water komt traag op gang). De keuken is apart gelegen maar ruim en goed geoutilleerd.

Internet (ondanks verstrekte dongel) was in ons geval niet mogelijk. Who cares? Een weekje zonder is heerlijk. Overigens, via internet-cafe met terrasje in Amizmiz, is het ook mogelijk en gezellig bovendien.

Een aanrader voor mensen die avontuur (omgeving), comfort en rust (Dar Achorafa) niet schuwen!

Dineren in een berbertent bij restaurant ‘Chez Amaghousse’ met uitzicht over het meer in Lalla Takerkoust is eveneens een aanrader.

Kortom, een tweede bezoek is niet uitgesloten (zeker met prijs/kwaliteit in aanmerking genomen).

Laurence c.s.: bedankt voor de gastvrijheid.
