“A little slice of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

After a few days in Marakech and a great scrub down at the Hamman we made our way by local bus to Amizmiz and then took a taxi the short distance to Dar Achorafa. What a beautiful place to stay. We had our own suite with double doors leading to the pool. A donkey gently braying in the distance, peacocks wondering by as we lounged by the pool, surrounded by the typical mud brick walls...all so Moroccan.....Olive trees laden with fruit, a rosemary hedge, basil in the walkway and in amongst the rocks in the distance prickly pear and cacti.
When you walk through the local village, breathing the mountain air and feeling the peacefulness of this exquisite place, you feel touched by the life of the locals in this area and you feel you are experiencing something more than a tourist's glimpse.
Others have already commented on the fabulous food and the wonderful hospitality of the hosts, and we wholeheartedly agree...A truly memorable experience

Hosts Laurence and Hicham have created a place of respite and relaxation just an hour from bustling Marrakech. The new cottage, appointed with bits of history, was very comfortable, and the garden - complete with peacock (the only thing that really broke the serenity of the place - was a great place to just hang. Hicham was a willing and knowledgeable guide with a strong commitment to this community (as does Laurence), and he is now the local village mayor! Laurence and her staff created wonder meals ... she even went above and beyond to make an anniversary cake for my wife and me.

We'd go back to Dar Achorafa in a minute!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Dar Achorafa. The excellent welcome/service, food and environment turned our visit to Maroc into an unforgettable trip. Everything was done to make us feel at ease and so we did!

As two bedrooms share the same bathroom, the house is best rented as a whole or half. Prices are very reasonable.

Merci beaucoup! C' etait excellent!
