Centuries ago, youssef Ben Tachfine's conquering army pitched their tents on the Haouz plain..Legend has it they had so many dates among their provisions that, by throwing the stones on the fertile ground, the troops inadvertently created the Marrakesh Palmeraie! A family residence built with love and care in the early 80's, the house has delighted all the friends we have invited there. The house stands in 5-acres grounds in the very heart of the Palmeraie. Palm trees, century-old olive trees, giant carobs… Orange trees, year-round lemon trees, citron and Seville orange trees … Bay-trees, jasmine, hibiscus, roses and bougainvillea … Andalusian pond with water lilies, goldfish and frogs. Summerhouse and fountains make the garden a haven of peace, a corner of paradise where ringdoves and a multitude of other birds have taken up residence. A house with a warm welcome, fashioned by twenty years of good living. Each piece of furniture, each bibelot, each pisture which decorates it has its own story to tell, tales of distant travels and chance encounters. And today, our guests all leave something of themselves behind them.

The bathrooms are truly out of the ordinary, with 30's-style fittings, their decor a tasteful blend of zellij, marble and tadellakt.
