The main house has a restaurant, bar and roof terrace with stunning views of the countryside and, in the distance, Marrakech and the High Atlas.

The location is an ideal base for trips into Marrakech (about 25mins) and less than an hour in the other direction you can be in the Atlas and at the foot of North Africa's Highest Mountain, Jebel Toukbal.

'Tent' does not really do justice to the accommodation as only the top half of the walls and the roof are canvas (well actually beautiful Moroccan prints and silks) and the base and walls have the cool tadelakt finish famous in Moroccan interior design.

The 2 person double tents are 30m2 with a 180 x 200 double bed, decorated with traditional Moroccan items, equipped with air conditioning, heating, en-suite tadelakt bathrooms, dressing area, a small living room and a safe. Each tent is decorated in its own style and whilst we are not able to reserve specific rooms if there is one you particularly like let us know and we will try to arrange it.

The family tents are larger and can sleep 4 people, in either one double and two single beds or alternatively 4 single beds (one even takes 5). There is a silk curtain to divide the two sleeping areas. All other aspects of the family tents are the same, but again they are individually decorated.

Finally there is a stunning suite tent called Nupitale Nador. Extremely romantic with a huge double bed and soft lighting this is the perfect option for any couple.

The highlight of the grounds is a large 20x10m pool with beach style "wet-deck" at one end to sit and chill out or eat.

It is owned and managed by Brigitte and Jean, a French couple who will look after all your needs and ensure the food is of an excellent standard (although limited choice). Meals are served in a dining room, under the arches, beside the pool, or in your tent.

Behind the dining room is a small courtyard with tropical plants. Opening off the courtyard are 2 suites and 1 guest bedroom.

Also in the grounds is a hammam and massages can easily be arranged. There isn't much to do in the immediate area but it is a great base for day trips to the Atlas mountains and horse riding and 4x4 tours can also be booked.
