We were on a driving trip through morocco in a motorhome, but we had read of Dar Sidi Bounou and wanted to just take a look. When we drove in, we just fell in love with this little oasis of peace and tranquility in the hectic place that is Morocco.
Nancy let us stay in our motorhome, though she did say it's not what they normally cater for. because of this, we did'nt get an electical hookup, but we did'nt need it as it's so sunny there the solar panels on most vehicles that travel this way will be fine. Besides, you will not be in your van much!
The food is great, we really enjoyed it. The company is super, and the setting divine. We wanted to visit the local Kasbah very early in the morning for the good light, and lack of heat and that was no problem. in fact nothing was a problem.
This would be a great base for a few days when in the area.
