Boutique hotel, Palais Paysan, is situated at the foot of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, and offers a stark contrast to the typical Berber villages that are driven through before arrival.
Designed by French designer, Ludo Petit, the hotel offers a quirky design aesthetic, taking traditional Moroccan elements and re-interpreting them with a contemporary touch.
Far from 'The Peasant Palace' that its name suggests in translation, it offers 16 rooms each with a stunning outdoor space – a view of the mountains or the beautiful gardens. The rooms also feature a customized bathroom with dual sinks; a walk in shower or bath and a huge plus – they are very spacious.
The hotel is a pastoral retreat less than an hour from the heart of the city and surrounded by landscaped olive groves. Its tranquil location is complimented with a Spa, Jacuzzi and massage rooms. There is also as a luxurious outdoor pool and pool-house serving Moroccan-inspired lunches and a top quality restaurant and terrace serving traditional Moroccan specialties with Mediterranean accents.
Rates: From 190 Euro per night (low season)
