Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cette AJ. Nous avons tout particulièrement apprécié l'accueil chaleureux du personnel et les échanges entre les voyageurs. Ces échanges étaient rendus possibles grâce au personnel : conseils aux voyageurs, repas communs proposés le soir, séance de yoga... d'où une très bonne ambiance dans l'auberge, ce que l'on ne retrouve pas partout. Brav !!. je retiens un souvenir tout particulièrement agréable de Simo et Alina.

Very personal experience. Majid aka Magique makes this place magical! On our last evening, two of the staff took us shopping among the locals for ingredients to make Tagines. Majid showed my husband and I how to cook Tagines and these are the best we've ever had! While the food was cooking, the same staff took our kids shopping in the souk and helped them with their "bargaining skills"! We've also met another family with whom we've decided to continue our trip in Morocco. Cold in winter though.
