I LODGE WHERE?
In the middle of fields of olive trees facing the Atlas, in a luxuriant garden of 4000 m2 amid fields of olive trees in full nature facing the Atlas mountains. You sleep alone or together in a dream pavillion in paradise. You fall asleep by candlelight to the sound of crickets, and you wake up in the light of day to the song of the lark and bulbul in the gardens.
I DO WHAT ALL DAY LONG ?
You participate in yoga sessions for three days and enjoy a healthy and organic vegetarian cuisine, whose meals are prepared with products from a bio-dynamic farm in Taroudant. You swim through the refreshing water of the swim-lane, contemplating the garden of euphoria and grasses that run alongside the pool. You go shopping in the artisanal souk of Taroudant. You take a walk in the mountains, exploring the Amazigh villages and their oases or spend the day at the beach and return in the evening to the garden. You will be surprised to discover many other things in your stay at DarZahia.
