Beautiful authentic Moroccan architecture using traditional methods with a great pool with very clean water, which only looks green in the photos because green tadelak was used. There are no turtles! It's tortoises that you will see racing (I kid you not) around the raised garden in hot pursuit of each other. You will be served an ample French style... More

We, family with 2 kids, spent three wonderful days at Riad Dar Dzahra. Yves and his team were great, very kind and helpful. Yves knows where to buy things and knows who is reliable with forwarding goods. Furthermore the breakfast was very good and also dinner. They also took care of the kids well. The location of this Riad is... More

If you're looking for the authentic Berber Moroccan experience, then Taroudant's your place. And there's no better host than Yves, who runs and designed Riad Dar Dzahra. It's just off the main town square so it's ideally situated. It's a peaceful oasis amidst the usual hustle and bustle and the green pool is perfect when you need to cool down... More

Yves is certainly eclectic if not eccentric! He runs the Riad with a great staff of locals and has friends all over town. We had to get help finding the Riad (not a surprise) but found the municipal parking area nearby to be secure, safe and cheap, and the short walk to the Riad via a few babushka stores was... More

Thank you to Yves and his staff. WE spend 4 days at Dar Dzahra and enjoyed it. Very good food, lovely rooms and environment. Yves the French owner is a very happy, informative, helpful man and his conversations are always very interesting.

We have stayed in Taroudant before, but not in this Riad. Yves the owner has only been open for a couple of years, but his is, in our opinion, the best place in town. The rooms are all different and all lovely. The bathrooms are good with great showers. The overall environment is calm and peaceful after the bustle of... More

Probably the best place I stayed in my one month trip through Morocco. I got a warm welcome from the owner Yves, who made me feel right at home. Beautiful rooms, and very friendly staff. If you visit Taroudant, this is the place to stay, highly recommended!

If you head to Touradant, the Riad Dzhara is the place to stop for the night or maybe for the week! This riad is held by Yves, a french man from Saint Malo who ended here in 2009 and built this beautiful guest house from scratch. Riad Dzhara is in the Medina just few meters from the main square.

Staying here was the best choice we made. Yves, the owner, helped plan the rest of our trip in Morocco and treated us like family. The Riad itself is beautiful and Yves did a magnificent job of building it using the traditional techniques of Morocco. The man is a modern day Macgiver and a true legend. His friend Habib took...
