We had been driving for hours in the Moroccan October sun, when at the end of a 3km dust track we turned our hire car around the last corner and we were met with a very unassuming wooden gate, with a terracotta painted wall surrounding the perimeter. Hot, tired and hungry we entered through the gate and WOW! suddenly our weary heads were lifted. We had walked into an Oasis of colour and tranquillity.
No sooner had we put our bags down we were asked to sit down at our table in the courtyard and were treated to a fantastic meal with wine and a very gratefully received beer.
The rest of our stay was fantastic, eating there every night on a different table in the courtyard was just a magical experience.
Daisy, our youngest made a friend (Sophia) and they played and explored the grounds, and even found some tortoises in the Garden.
We all also enjoyed the swimming pool and terrace, relaxing and playing with the owners dog, who was very soft and playful.
the rooms are great, and there is free WI-Fi within the grounds.
I have to mention Rasheed, he was always very helpful and whatever we asked for he provided with a smile and treated the kids like an uncle!
A fantastic place to spent time, like other reviews our only regret was only spending three night there.
Well done team Baoussla!
