Dar Raha is a beautiful house. As Antoine said when he showed me around 'it's not just about the room, it's about the whole house'. Each room opens onto a sitting area, and there are salons, an interior courtyard and a roof terrace with a beautiful view over the old ksar of Amezrou on one side and the 'palmeraie' on the other. The house has been beautifully restored and is comfortable while retaining it's original character.
Our room 'Musc' was large, and although not en-suite, the shower/toilet was just across the hall, so this wasn't a problem. There are also several bathrooms available for guest use - in our part of the building - there were two showers and two toilets for the use of three rooms.
Lots of thoughtful touches like robes for lounging, books, games, filtered water etc. were scattered throughout the house. We ate at the Dar during both evenings of our stay. The food was good, (wine and beer are available) service attentive, and we enjoyed talking with other guests, and sitting in front of the real fire in the salon before dinner.
The unique draw of Dar Raha is Antoine himself. A great host, who is very knowledgeable about the area. We walked around the ksar of Amezrou with him and were amazed at his grasp of architectural and historical detail. Antoine donates his fee towards projects he has set up to help local children.More
