The place is a real charm. The rooms are huge. Dinner cooked by Aziza and Said is one of the best we had in Morocco. Said maintains the place in an immaculate state. They both give you a feeling you are part of the family. I wish we could stay more...

We stayed here for one night during our tour with Erg Chebbi Private Day Tours. Aziza welcomed us with a warm smile and gave us the choice of two lovely air conditioned rooms. The riad is so beautiful, the roof is bamboo and wooden beams and the walls are made from a mud and straw composite which makes it feel... More

We arrived late in the afternoon , the owner was waiting for us outside with a big smile. Inside, we were served mint tea on the terrace with a beautiful view of the mountain. Very relaxing and comfortable, feels like home after a long trip. The food was great !!. We would definitely recommend it.

We had a very nice evening at Riad Charrues on the way to the Sahara Desert. The family that runs the Riad is wonderful and the food was quintessential Moroccan cuisine. We would definitely recommend it.

This is the type of gem that has a tendency to derail your plans. We intended to stay for only one night but were sad to tear ourselves away even after extending for an extra day. The riad is Said’s ancestral home, and our time at Vieilles Charrues felt like being welcomed into a deluxe homestay. The rooms are stylish,... More

We stayed at the Riad during the winter and it was so warm and comfortable inside. We sat by the fire in the salon for tea time and talked with the owners. The riad is family run, and Aziza is my favorite! She is so sweet! The decor of the rooms is very warm and natural, with Berber accents. A... More
