During our stay in Marrakech we decided to go to see the mountains- the High Atlas Mountains a few hours away from Marrakech. Our driver was wonderful and showed us the best sites in Ourika valley including the Berber villages and the women's cooperative that makes Argon (Almond) oil. The day was rainy and cloudy but extremely lovely. Our driver promised us a wonderful lunch where tourists don't go. We were welcomed to Au Bord de l'Eau by Poulou and Martine, the owners into a cozy and beautiful home. It was as though we had stepped into a home in Europe with Moroccan touches and were made to feel so comfortable and warm by the owners. We ate an out of this world meal served with their home made citrus wine and to die for home made sorbet dessert. We were completely surprised by our lunch!
The house is located on the river with fruit and flower trees, a perfect site for being one with nature. The home is decorated in a simple and elegant style just like its surroundings.
We can't wait to go back to Marrakech and stay a few nights at Au Bord de l'Eau. Lunch certainly whetted our appetite for more!
