We went to Bab El Oued, coming from charming Kasbah BahaBaha (see our critic) on our way back to Marakkech.
The place, though only few years old, is really charming, thanks to the beautiful garden, the nice bungallows that are built in traditionnal materials and using antiques, the warm and inviting swimming pool and, the excellent cuisine -bio from what was said- and, last but not least, the communicative enthusiasm of the owners, Mathilde and her Moroccon husband (whose first name I didn't catch though he definitely speaks fluent French).
Close to this charming maison d'hôte-very well suited for a few days halt- is a wonderfull Kasbah, formerly owned by Caid (sorry, again I missed the name), an opponent to Pacha Glaoui, who built one of the most beautifull Kasbah we visited in Morocco and that has a wonderfull inyard court spanning over three stores that dates back to the XVIth century.
Indulge yourself in a visit with one of the 10 local guides who won't count their time when evocating the past glory of the place (the fours caid's ladies, the slaves and the strong Jewish community he helped flourished as they linked him to the -then-global merchant place.
