  • 5 of 5

"Soacious and well equipped house set in beautiful grounds with pool, loungers and nice barbecue area. We did feel that the surroundings beyond the walls surrounding the house were not quite as we expected - great to have a driver as one cannot rely on local shops. Our driver was very helpful . Our experience was more than slightly tinged by the weather as it rained a lot and the lane to the house was extremely waterlogged. The rooms of the house became damp too - but we realised this was very unusual and I know the owners, who were extremely apologetic on our return, are rectifying this now. Our lovely maid was brilliant and she and the neighbour were most helpful when we had problems. We all learnt how to make tagine and bread and we had the most wonderful meals cooked for us! Would definitely recommend - must be lovely in sunny weather!"

Trèsa agréable séjour et jardin luxuriant

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable séjour passé chez Jo et Guillaume. Très belle piscine avec une eau limpide, grand jardin très bien entretenu : palmiers, bougainvilliers, hibiscus et tant d’autres fleurs , belles rencontres et agréables discussions avec les Marocains d’Essaouira et d’Ounagha. Nous nous sommes régalés avec les tajines, couscous et crèpes d’Habiba.. Chambres très propres, très agréables et silencieuses. A recommander pour passer d'agréables vacances.

Super

  • 5 of 5

Mes amies et moi avons passé quelques jours chez Jo & Guillaume. Nous avons été reçus chaleureusement par ce couple de retraités. Un bon tajine pris en commun avant que ceux-ci s'éclipsent pour leurs vacances en nous laissant leur villa subliiiime.

Un jardin verdoyant, une piscine chaude et limpide, des oiseaux, des tortues, le rêve ! Plusieurs terrasses et jardins spécifiques entourent la maison dont un jardin du désert avec des cactus et le riad avec sa fontaine et ses sièges où prendre l'apéro.

Beaucoup d'espace pour se retrouver ensemble mais aussi beaucoup d'autres où trouver l'intimité avec un livre... ou son amoureux ! (la prochaine fois, il viendra avec moi!)

La maison est tout aussi splendide , confortable et comprend tous les éléments qu'on souhaite y trouver.

Merci pour cette découverte que nous suggérons à tous les vacanciers.

Merci pour ce moment !

  • 5 of 5

Nous quittons Dar Melka avec tristesse car notre séjour, organisé à la dernière minute, c'est déroulé parfaitement grâce à tous vos conseils.

La piscine était aussi accueillante que les bons repas d'Habiba ou que les jardins exotiques.

Nous serons certainement de retour prochainement,

Merci

Manon, Fanfan, Alex et Jules.

Séjour fantastique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu un séjour fantastique - merci.

La maison est très accueillante, dès le premier jour nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison. La maison est bien équipée avec tout ce dont nous pouvions avoir besoin. La piscine est très propre, le jardin très soigné.

Les propriétaires nous ont fourni beaucoup de détails et répondu à toutes nos questions. Nous avons pu profiter au maximum de notre séjour grâce Leurs suggestions très utiles (ballades, activités…).

Nous y retournerons :
