I wish we'd had a bit more time in Asila--I would've loved to settle in at this house. But we had just one night, on our way out via the Tangier airport. I booked here precisely because the full details of breakfast were listed on the website--I figured anyone who put that much care into the food would also run a fine hotel! And that turned out to be true--every aesthetic detail was lovely (local sea salts in the bathroom, for scrubbing!), and Caroline was an excellent hostess. And not only was breakfast a treat, but we also had a stellar dinner--a great blend of Moroccan and French, creative but still home-cooked, and using all fresh produce.
The drive from Asila to Tangier airport is only about five minutes longer than it is from central Tangier out to the airport, so Asila was a great place to leave from--a pretty, calm town where we felt like we could wind down at the end of a long trip.
Many thanks to Caroline for a great last night--and one of the best on our trip!
