This wonderful B&B or inn is quite new, located on the edge of a palm oasis between Errachidia and Erfoud, on the way to the dunes in Merzouga. It's one of a few houses scattered along the small road, and at night is very peaceful with a great view of the stars from the roof. The host family lives here and raises the food they serve, and offers many diversions: cooking classes, a tour of the oasis with explanation of oasis agriculture, weaving lessons, description of local customs, trying on wedding outfits, and henna 'tatoos' on hands or feet...and a trip to the Merzouga dunes for a camel ride if you wish. Your hostess is Kheira, a lovely young woman who speaks fluent English. I lead small group tours to Morocco and we often stop for lunch here; last spring the group begged to stay overnight, and I plan to do so on future tours. I've stayed myself and found it a wonderful restful oasis, actual and virtual, in Morocco. You won't find another place like it, for the peace and quiet, natural beauty, and hospitality.
