Really an oasis of huge riads all around a gorgeous swimming pool. At the helm are Jean-Pierre and Hélène who organise your every need from yoga to taxis. They live on site and have a friendly and willing team of gardeners, cooks, waitresses, night watchman as well as tortoises plus Arbi and his donkey, Argan. Feels like a family affair.... More

We actually stayed here 2 years ago, but have thought about it and been meaning to write a review ever since! We arrived at L'Arganeraie right at the end of the tourist season, so it was really quiet. We got a huge villa to ourselves. Unfortunately the restaurant had already closed for the season, but the owners were brilliant and... More

The Domaine is situated near Essaouira, around 15 minutes drive, at the end an unpaved road. But you do not need a 4 wheel drive. And it is worth! You will find a paradise, nice houses in a beautiful garden. The houses are widely spread in the garden, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. We were lucky to have a... More

My two grown up daughters and I spent a very relaxing long weekend and are so pleased we chose this destination. We took advantage of the airport transfer (15 Euros) which may seem a lot but worth it for the convenience of letting someone else find his way down the very bumpy track to the hotel!
