I even went running along the unmade roads. Food presented in style and kindly catered to my vegetarian needs.

We were so taken by the charm and feel of Riad Baoussala, not least the great sense of space, beautifully tended grounds, lovely traditional rammed earth buildings and the staff; Rachid is a wonderful and charming waiter cum general factotum while Lubna's cooking is a joy.
