At the footstep of the High Atlas, 40 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, the blond sand beaches, the splendid golf courses and Agadir international Airport, a big and very comfortable traditional house (450 square meters) with pool (15 m x 4 m) surrounded by a large berber garden (20000 square meters) with a 360Â° view on the moutains. 4 parental suites on a separated courtyard each with twin beds, shower and toilets , 2 living rooms, 1 separate TV room, 1 dining room, terrace, 8 pool beds, satellite TV. No pollution of any kind.
Located 40 km from the imperial city of Taroudannt, Tiout palm grove, Paradise Valley, 2 hours from Marrakech by the new safe highway, 2 hours from Essaouira, the ancient city on the ocean. An unforgettable experience between ancestral traditions and the modernity of Agadir clubs and restaurants. Housekeeper and maid included all year round. Nice weather from january 1st to december 31th. Welcome to Dar Toubkal ! The best quiet and safe place to discover the whole diversity of South Morocco, a very welcoming area and inhabited by the nicest people in the whole North Africa. Enjoy your stay !
The first meal when arriving at night, housekeeping and linen are free. Then you'll have to do the shopping during your stay. If you want it, a cook will be at your disposal (15 â‚Ź per day) and the housekeeper will be delighted to take care of your children in case you wanna go on excursion.
To privatize the house for one week, the basic price is 1300 euros. Prices are going down as stay is going longer :)
- 5 minutes by foot from the house, there is a small grocer's shop for ordinary products (oil, milk, butter, flour, sodas…)
- 10 minutes by car, you can go to the village of Eddir (to the left at the end of the small road which leads at home) where one or two bigger grocer's shops are always opened. Every Wednesday takes place in Eddir the weekly souk (meats, vegetables, fruits, and sometimes small funny objects) very cool to eat a goat tajine under argan trees.
- 20 minutes by car, the big souk in the center of Oulad Teima is opened days and nights to late. Any services and pharmacies.
- 30 minutes by car, nearby the exit of the highway to Agadir, there is a hypermarket where you can shopping all you need for your stay. Small prices. Meats, fruits and vegetables are excellent and without any sanitary problem.
Advise : if you buy fruits, vegetables and meats in the stalls of souks, often delicious, Samira or Mina will wash them before putting them in the refrigerator or in the freezer. The kitchen offers drinking filtered water and presents no danger for the consumption. You will find in the a Nespresso coffe machine and you can thus bring capsules because they are hard to find in Morocco.
You will find in the kitchen or Mohammed will lend you a 3G key which works with Mac and PC. The installation is automatic as soon as you connect it to the computer. The key works with prepaid cards INWI HDM which you can in all the big, average and small cities.
The connection costs 10 Dh a day (0,90 euro) or 50 Dh a week ( 4,80 euros).
The connection is slow, but if the key is well oriented, you can easily check your mails and have a look at the news.
Marrakesh, the pink city (2:45 hours by the highway. One, two or three days)
Leave the track runway and join main road Agadir-Taroudannt, turn right and you'll find the highway after less than 10 kilometers … Easy! On the way back, choose the Ameskroud/Taroudannt exit. Precision: in the summer, the temperature in Marrakesh rarely falls below 40° C during the day.
Taroudannt (two hours, four, ½ a day, 1 day)
The Berber imperial medina is more beautiful (and less hot) at sunset. Must see the Ramparts, classified in the UNESCO world heritage. Souk on Wednesdays, Berber souk and Arabic souk every day in the center of the medina. Pleasant stopping place in the gardens of the Palais Salam, where unfortunately meals are not very tasty. Same remark as for Marrakesh: the temperature in summer often exceeds 40°C. But you can souk as night as all shops are open lately.

Join the ROAD (not the highway) of Marrakesh. In about fifteen kilometers, turn to the right (to turn left by crossing the national without risks) in the direction of Imouzzer.
