A family of 5 adults (3 of whom had been to Morocco before) we initially tried to book a quiet relaxing property hoping to go back to one in the Palmeriae area of Marrakech where we had been before. A late booking for the UK May bank holiday weekend meant that we could not get the place. I came across this place through the i-escape website. I was unsure of what we would find. However, our 6 night stay was absolute bliss. This is an owner occupied property in several hectares of orchards, mainly orange nectarines and plums. So just bird song all the time with no traffic noise and a clear starry night sky. Two delightful dogs and a 3 month old kitten with some character just added to the atmosphere. Although the weather in early May was getting hot it was a delight to be able to wander around the orchard and swim in the large pool. This is just the property. Hicham and Karima, the owners made us feel most welcome. Initially Muhammed and then Hind looked after us with such grace and courtesy. There was always a bountiful and fresh breakfast, an intriguing choice of small lunches and very generous evening meals of several courses starting with a large number of salads/vegetables and other food. They even coped with one of us being a vegetarian. This is a place for people who want to be away from it all with good food and service. For more excitement there is the Medina, 30 to 40 minutes way by a 10 Euro taxi (who will be happy to bring you back at the appointed time) or the modern Gueliz area. Hicham also arranged a 4x4 day long tour into the Atlas mountains and organised our airport transfers
