Dar Tassa, literally meaning ‘The Home of Motherly Love’ in the local Berber language, extends a heartfelt welcome to all who wander to our remote corner of the world. An eco-friendly guest house retreat, Dar Tassa is located just 1 hour 20 minutes by road from Marrakech, inside Toubkal National Park, home to the highest peak in North Africa (Jebel Toubkal 4,165 metres).
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.
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.
Moroccan holiday packages which include Dar Tassa, multi-centre Morocco holidays and adventure tours can be arranged through our tour operator partner Specialist Morocco.
