A delightful and relaxing stay in the country side, thanks to wonderful hosts/owners - Jean-Pierre and Dominique - and their fabulous team who prepare delicious local cuisine and care for the magnificent camels on site. This guest house is excellent value for its high standard, and it offers all the necessary services (pool, massage treatments, camel rides, balconies, fireplaces and lounge areas) to ensure a very relaxing stay. We were surprised about the location when we had to take a taxi (150 dirhams one way) 20 km south of Essaouira, but J-P & Dominique do everything to make it easy for you to get there (facilitating taxi pick up or doing it themselves) and make you feel very at home. WBy the way, these Camels from Mali are very different to the Moroccan one’s you will see elsewhere in the country. They are larger, more majestic and disciplined. Jean-Pierre has equipped them with horse saddles, so they are very comfortable to ride - this really was one of the highlights of our entire trip. Don’t let any previously painful or bad camel riding experiences put you off, because this was something else! Staying here was a perfect way to be near to the charming town of Essaouira and also enjoying the Argan tree landscape and living amongst local communities. I would definitely recommend stopping by La Maison du Chameaux!
