Having spent three day in Marrakesh and four days on a tour of the High Atlas and the Sahara the super-objective was to find somewhere off the beaten track and far from the 'madding crowd' where my niece and I might immerse ourselves in total relaxation for the remaining four days of our visit to this stunning counry.

We arrived on the Sunday afternoon to a very friendly greeting by Giles & Brigitte who were house sitting whilst the owners were away.

However, although not Moroccan themed, our room was spacious and comfortable... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Villa Daba, we arrived at 3am and were greated with a fresh glass of orange juice and a welcome that in the middle of the day would be lovely, let alone the middle of the night. After a hectic summer Villa Daba was a wonderful retreat. Not too far from town... More

Villa Daba is perfect place if you're seeking the getaway from busy streets and tourist crowds. It's location guarantees you the peace and quiet - the only people you'll meet is the lovely hotel staff and the few guests. Only sound is wind in the trees and far-away donkey. Every room on the second floor has spacious balcony with the... More

Let me first say you do not need to have a hire car to stay here as it's an 80 dirham taxi ride to Essaouira(9 Kms away) and it's the turn off by The Tagine Cafe on the main road and a few Kms down a bumpy track. Didier drives into town everyday and he is happy to give you... More
