-For you, travel rhymes with nature and full of energy? You will resist hardly at the call of the desert and the majestic peaks of the Moroccan High Atlas.
-The gentle fragrances of the Orient make you dream since your childhood? You already smell the scents emanating from the ancestral souks that will not fail to awaken the senses of the epicurean aesthete that you are.
-A “relaxation and well-being” stay would do you the greatest good? Hammam, black Soap scrub, Ghassoul wrapping, and essential oils are one of the many treatments that await you.
-Do you like to travel in the “spirit of the place”? You will surely hesitate between the charms of a secret riad, the simplicity of a Berber canvas, the authenticity of a kasbah with the walls of adobe or the unusual character of an ecolodge in the heart of the AIT Bougmez.
