This was the perfect antidote to the overwhelming crush of Marrakech. It's really hard not to relax in such a peaceful spot, surrounded by so much natural beauty. Our hosts, Jean Pierre and Dominique, took wonderful care of us. Their good humoured hospitality managed to get through grumpiness of my teenager - no mean feat! Definitely coming back here.

I had the most wonderful stay at La Maison du Chameau with the unbelievable kind owners Jean-Pierre and Dominique! I was picked up in Essaouira by JP in their jeep. The journey on the narrow roads and dirt road was in itself a breathtaking experience. Make sure you have a good heartcondition before taking on this drive (LOL). I loved... More

It's a fantastic place, with good camels from Mali, and a little farm house very quiet. You have to know this adress when you go to Essaouira.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Certainly the most typical B&B in the area. Located in the middle of the argan trees of Ida Ougourd, 20 km from Essaouira, it offers a view of splendid landscapes as well as the discovery of authentic Morocco, far from the usual tourist routes. The house proposes a stud farm of 7 camels, a swimming pool and a natural vivarium. All rooms are equipped with wide beds and terraces giving on to the garden, the swimming pool, the camels and the argan trees. ... more   less
