“No Ka 'Oi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This was our first trip to Morocco and it couldn't have been more amazing. Francoise and Jean-Marc are gracious hosts and made us feel like a part of the family. No detail has been overlooked and the meals were C'est magnifique. The location couldn't have been more picturesque. If you think you are lost... you are close. Had it not been our first trip, we wouldn't have felt the need to leave. I cannot wait to return.

Thank you very much Pilipo. Now, we also have the impression of having a "piece of the family" on the other side of the oceans !!!

We arrived at Essaouira looking for a surf adventure, two spoiled Americans accustomed to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas. After finding Moulay, our jaws dropped at the amazing location of the house. It was as if we had our own beach, our own sunset, etc. We were welcomed with a traditional tagine meal and speak shockingly little French but was instantly comfortable with Francoise and Jean-Marc. They couldn't be lovelier. The architecture and decor of the house is fantastic, everything is just perfect. No neighbours, absolute peace and quiet, and fantastic bottles of Moroccan wine for £7!!! Very much recommended and cannot wait to go back!!

We spent a wonderfully and romantically time at A Maree Haute. As charming and enchanting Farncoise et Jean-Marc are as beautiful and fantastic is the home with the nice details all over the house, that shows the excellent gout and bon et subtil humour. Francoise is a good cookee (thanks for all the delicious dinners!!!) and you feel hearty welcome from the first moment. It is like coming home. We love Cinnamon et le chat. Thanks a lot for the fantastic and too short time, hope to come back anytime, the just married German Lena et Lars

I arrived at Moulay for the first time and it's quite easy for me to say: I came to Francoise's and Jean-Marc's place and immediately wanted to stay. I felt well there from the first moment on with two wonderful hosts, in an exceptionel house and in inviting rooms, also with the excellent cuisine. I can't help to say: Being back home I miss both hosts, also the authentic conversation about their various experience abroad, this surprising country in general. I am curious to see, how long it takes me and us to return...

After 850km tandem, not always nice meals, nights often choppy, we had the great pleasure to get back on track ..... These eight days have been wonderful ... A pretty good meeting! See you soon ....

We keep returning here for all our holidays for several reasons:
It's more like staying with good friends - Francoise and Jean Marc are generous, wonderful hosts.
The house and environment are beautiful and very peaceful.
The food is delicious.
Moulay Bouzarktoun is great for windsurfing and chilling out.

My girlfriend and I both loved the Maree Haute. The villa is an oasis within a rolling wild landscape, green hills of a nature reserve towards inland, and wild seaside westwards to gaze at forever. In this semi-dry environment, the odd wildlife can be observed, like a solitary hawk hunting for small rabits. Locals collect seashells and urchins each day on the rocks which become visible at low tide. Francoise and Jean Marcq make one feel very welcome, and manage in this lost area to prepare each day a real culinary French-Moroccon treat, preceded frequently by a friendly pastis. They struck a great balance between keeping the Moroccan traditional style, mixed with modern comfort. La Maree Haute is 600 meters away from Moulay, where top level windsurfers, including Boujma, the national hero and Hawai legend, can be found doing their amazing tricks. Worth the visit if you love to get away from the hectic life of Western society and spend a weekend with your couple or as a family
