Dar Tassa is a wonderful property in a dramatic location. It is completely off the beaten track in a hidden corner of the High Atlas Mountains yet 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. An eco-friendly mountain lodge tucked away in a superb location on the edge of Toubkal National Park, and just 1 hour 20 minutes’ drive from Marrakech, the lodge sleeps a total of 25 people in 10 rooms, each furnished in a rustic Berber country style.
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.
Dar Tassa is available either on a room by room or an exclusive property rental basis.
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.
For those seeking escape and relaxation Dar Tassa provides an antidote to the stresses of modern life. Read a good book, eat well and perhaps try your hand at Moroccan cooking or take a stroll in the hidden Azzadene Valley. Relaxing is easy at Dar Tassa. For activity enthusiasts, hiking, mountain biking, riding and adventure opportunities abound to suit all abilities.

I'm originally from North Yorkshire and have spent my life working in the travel and hospitality business - as a rental property owner, tour operator and as a tour guide. I've been lucky enough to travel all over the world but now split my time between Africa (Morocco, Tanzania and Zanzibar), the North Yorkshire Moors or my UK family home in Surrey. I set my standards high and always aim to deliver first-rate customer service, with prompt speed of reply, fair prices and a high quality product. As well as running Specialist Africa, a UK-based Tour Operator which specialises in Tanzania and Morocco, I also co-own Riad Africa - a boutique hotel in Marrakech, plus Maison Africa - a beautiful Marrakech rental property, and Sahara Safari Camp - a stylish desert eco-camp in the Moroccan Sahara.

I feel in love with Dar Tassa the moment I saw it, from its' perfect location on the edge of the Toubkal National Park, to its welcoming staff and un-commercialized location, it stood out from all of the other properties I have visited in the area.
Ideal trekking base; away from the commercialized villages; great views; choice of accommodation depending on your budget.
Dar Tassa ‘Atlas Mountain Retreat’ is set in a stunning location overlooking the friendly Berber hamlet of Tassa Ouirgane and verdant Azzadene River Valley. Residing on the very edge of Toubkal National Park Dar Tassa has one of the most dramatic and picturesque locations in the entire High Atlas Mountains.
Just a 1 hour 20 minute drive from Marrakech, be sure to bring your binoculars to search for Barbary Sheep in the Takherkhort Wildlife Sanctuary, or spot eagles soaring over towering Atlas Peaks.
