Guests are made to feel that this is their home too, albeit one with an intoxicating blend of colours, scents and exotic opulence.

You enter into a large domed reception area, where country home meets North African mystery. Lovingly furnished with rich textures and materials, the spacious salons provide quiet corners to escape to with a book. There are old chests, works of art and oh-so-comfortable sofas and chairs adorned with wonderful cushions. The library has the most beautiful painted ceiling. A covered outdoor seating area, the fan room, is another place to relax or meet up for a chat at the day's end.

Dining is spectacular and meals can be eaten in the elegant dining room, on the terrace overlooking the ornamental pool or beside the swimming pool - the choice is yours. The cuisine is exquisite and will provide you with a wonderful introduction to the tastes of Morocco. Breakfast and tea are included in the price and dinner can be taken on request.

The three spacious double rooms and 3 suites are perfect. The decor and furnishings are entirely tasteful. Each room has a stylish bathroom in which you can unwind and each is equipped as well as any luxurious hotel.
