“Perfect getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

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 the building, my room with a balcony, the excellent food they themselves cooked, the clean and refreshing pool, and above all I just loved the camels! I went for two rides during my two days stay. The one ride to the old irrigation complex's ruins was fantastic because of the feeling of being out in the wilderness.). Their employees were all very kind and happy. Working for such nice people as Dominique and JP must be a pleasure. I will recommend everybody going to Marrakech or Essaouira to stay a day or two or more in this wonderful guesthouse!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a mountain view and you will probably get a room on the second floor. Very nice...

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.
