Dar Daif

Zineb and Jean-Pierre chose de settle in Ouarzazate 15 years ago, at the crossroads of the South Valleys of the Atlas and the Sahara. They have built and restored Dar Daif where they regularly invited their friends and people coming for treks, to drink tea and eat couscous. Their friends suggested they create one or two rooms to accommodate them rather than go to the hotel. Year after year their home with few rooms became a guest house, a real Caravanserai. 3 Km from Ouarzazate, the Kasbah recreates the atmosphere of the desert caravanserai. Zineb and Jean-Pierre Datcharry fascinated by desert and mountains for more than 20 years were able to make this cozy place, one of the most essential spots in the South. Since 2008, we are labeled by the Green Key program, established and certified by the Mohammed VI Foundation for the protection of the environment. The Selection Committee for Responsible Tourism held in Paris in October 13, 2009 offers Dar Daif the Trophy "Hosting Manager" small structures.

Traditional Riad

What do you mean "Traditional Riad"? I thought all riads were traditional homes.

While it is true that the vast majority of the riads, dars, villas and kasbahs of Morocco have very old roots, in recent years, for various reasons, the majority of  riads have been significanlty renovated, redesigned and restyled. Some have been redesigned in a modern decor, others very traditionally and others in a combination of both the modern and traditonal style. 

The riads in this list have self-described themselves as having both architecture and decor of traditonal Moroccan style. In these riads you might see the famous zellij tile, ceilings carved with intricate designs, Moroccan style rugs and metal lanterns. 

Quality Information on These Tradional Homes
