Dar Tassa is a simply wonderful place in the Atlas Mountains near Marrakech.
A lovely place amongst beautiful surroundings, let alone the delicious food and drink!
With highly friendly, knowledgeable and English speaking hosts aiding the organisation of our trek, our trip was definitely one to remember.
We visited on reading about this wonderful place in the RyanAir magazine where Dar Tassa was voted in their Top 10 most Eco-Friendly places to visit that won't harm the planet, or your pocket.
With great value for money we will be returning to Dar Tassa for sure.
Dar Itrane is an ecolodge that gives the opportunity to experience the Berber Culture of the Moroccan High Atlas, only 4 hours away from Marrakech.
Built in adobe, wood and natural materials according to traditional building techniques, it’s a small environment-friendly structure set in the wonderful area of the M’Goun Range, the villages of the Bougmez Valley, and offers a high level of comfort, which is awesome in such an area.
After a long walk, it’s really pleasant to relax in the traditionnal taddelakt hammam. And from the roof terraces at night, you can see thousands of stars… Dar Itrane also has a wide library focusing on the Berber Culture.
It’s a good base to go and explore the close traditional villages of the valley, meet the locals or go trekking to the Azourki or the M’Goun Summit, for example.
The team at Dar Itrane is really friendly; they always cook delicious Moroccan dishes and are happy to introduce you to their way of living in the High Atlas.

You can reach the Bougmez Valley using local transportation (collective taxis) from Bad Doukkala in Marrakech. Take a taxi to Azilal first, and then change to Tabant/Bougmez Valley.
