Alison, the dynamic English owner, is happy to advise you and help you organise any type of activities prior to arrival. From quad biking to camel and horse riding, to surfing and windsurfing or day trips to Sidi Kaouki beach or the potery factory in Safi.

"This house is equipped with everything you'll need. It is beautifully designed to provide a bright and airy living space. The small local 'shops' provide everything you'll need for breakfast on the sun terrace - don't forget the oranges for your fresh juice each morning! Allison was so helpful, advising us on everything from great places to eat to the best way of getting to the Sunday market at Had Dra (excuse my spelling!), and confirming that the trip to the "shack" on the beach at Sidi Kaouki is definitely worth the seafood that's served up there.
Best recommendation is that we'll definitely be back as long as it's available!"

"Tigmi mzine is a modern house with a thoroughly Moroccan feel.
Our ensuite bedroom was on the ground floor while the kids were on the first. This worked out really well - having our own, if small, floors! Also loved having a real fire most evenings, with drift wood collected from the beach. Great fun!
Afternoons were spent relaxing on the 'sun-trap' terrace - what bliss!
Continual hot water; good beds with lovely feather duvets and crisp white cotton sheets.
Loved all the shops, restaurants and fresh fish on sale. Oh, yes and the horse riding on the beach - wow! The kids preferred the camel riding and quad biking over the dunes.
Cool house, great town and amazing weather! Couldn't have asked for more!"
