Lodge overview - owner's description

Berber guest house retreat with breathtaking views of Azzaden Valley near Ouirgane, 65 km from Marrakech. 10 rooms and suites, seasonal pool, terraces & gardens. Ideal for group reunions & walkers.

Dar Tassa, literally meaning ‘The Home of Motherly Love’ in the local Berber language, is just 80 minutes drive from Marrakech. It is an authentic eco-friendly Berber guest house in a truly dramatic location on the edge of Toubkal National Park.

Completely off the beaten track in a hidden corner of the High Atlas Mountains, Dar Tassa offers superb walking for all levels of ability; from gentle strolls along the valley to more challenging treks from the front door all the way to Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa.

Our cosy Atlas Mountain retreat offers a true escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, with all the modern comforts and added charm of traditional Moroccan hospitality. The wild nature and breathtaking location of this place combined with the warm nature of its people help you understand that “marhaba“, (welcome), is more than an expression, it’s our way of life here.

This secret corner of Toubkal National Park is a quiet alternative to the swamped trekking bases, yet still easily accessible via taxi, car or 4×4. No matter which direction you venture, our doorstep is a trail-head into every degree of Toubkal’s most stunning terrain.

Dar Tassa sleeps up to 25 people in 10 standard, superior or suite rooms, each furnished in a rustic Berber country style. General facilities include, TV, DVD, games, books, Berber tent and spacious sun terrace with sun loungers and dramatic views down the valley and over Tassa Ouirgane village.

Dar Tassa’s strategic location inside Toubkal National Park promises many attractions, activities and day trip options; some just a stone’s throw away from Dar Tassa – and all within a scenic 1 hour 20 minute drive from Marrakech.

If you would like to modify one of our itineraries or would like us to create your own special itinerary to suit your interests, please let us know in advance so we can plan everything ensuring you have a safe and pleasant trip.

There is also the possibility to experience mule trekking and bicycle hire; this can be arranged at the retreat on your arrival or by email after booking.
