After hours of hot, bumpy driving from Merzouga, opening the heavy wooden door into the gardens of Bab El Oued was like stepping into paradise. A peacock strutted past flowers and the only noise was birdsong. It was beautiful, quiet and tranquil. For a moment I couldn’t quite believe my eyes!
We stayed in the largest of the 6 wooden huts/rooms right next to the pool. The hut/room was rustic and cosy, decorated with a beautiful blend of Moroccan artefacts and European design. Our bed was the most comfortable of the whole trip – lovely.
Straight after we arrived at Bab El Oued we set off to look round the ancient Tamnougalt Ksar (a 5-10 minute walk away and definitely worth a visit). Our 3 kids were all exhausted and rebellion was in the air so we had to hurry through the dilapidated alleys and low doorways of the old fort. Back at Bab El Oued the kids soon relaxed in the beautiful pool.
Supper and breakfast at Bab El Oued were delicious – including organic fruit and vegetables grown in the gardens. The owners were really charming, providing a warm welcome and very attentive service. We were all sad to have to move on the next day. With hindsight I would have planned a stay of at least 2 or 3 days.
