Our five night stay in Dar Tassa proved to be an amazing insight in to the life and customs of the Berber people. The guest house is located above a typical warm friendly and beautiful Berber village high in a green lush valley with stunning mountain views. If the location wasn't enough in itself the hospitality that was provided by all the staff, and in particular, Mohamed for who no request was impossible, made this vacation a joy and one that I shall cherish for years to come. It is well worth taking the opportunity of the tours offered by Dar Tassa's guides to fully appreciate this area of the Atlas. Will miss the people, the food (which was always excellent) and being somewhere quite special.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dar Tasnime is a charming Riad located within the old city of Marrakech, in the easily accessible quarter of R'mila-Jbel Lakhdar. A superb location and safe neighborhood in the vicinity of the main square Jamâa-el-Fna, shopping areas and other local attractions. Our property has been in the family since 1962 and was recently renovated and decorated with love, passion, and according to local traditions. It took two years for several teams of talented artisans to restore this traditional house using local materials and techniques that have been used for centuries. The refined tints of this authentic moroccan house are in perfect harmony with its arab architecture making it appropriate for a serene and convivial stay. The Riad offers five rooms in the first floor: two single confort, two twin or double and one triple room around a courtyard with a refreshing fountain. All rooms are equipped with reversible air conditioning and private bathrooms. The dining room and living room are in the ground floor. The roof terrace with exotic plants presents a great view on the old city and Atlas Mountains and is the privileged place for breakfast and relaxation. ... more less
