Jardins de Skoura, Ouarzazate

Caroline, the French owner, opened the house in 2003, after 5 years of restoration and boasts 5 rooms and 3 suites, most of them on the ground floor. How did she do it all by herself ? Find out more in our interview. Whether it is the generous gardens, the delicious cuisine, the traditional architecture, the views on the snow peaked Atlas mountains or the availability of Caroline, everyone falls under the spell here. And those that spend one night regret not spending more. Caroline has the warmest welcome and she immediately makes you feel at ease. She sits down with each guest and talks about her favorite spots in the area. Deserts on the menu include mousse au chocolat or lemon meringue. The house reflects the local architecture: the walls are made of pisé ( adobe) and the ceilings supported by birch and palm trunks. And if you care for more than enjoying the gardens, the views and the pool, there are plenty of choices: visit a local village market, learn about the life in the community from a local guide or trek in the nearby Mgoun mountains among lost- in- time villages at over 3000 meters high. Alcohol available on site. Best enjoyed all year round.
