Why we like it
- Dar Zitoune is only a 10 minute drive from the centre of Taroudant, and approximately 1hr from Agadir
- Nestling at the foot of the high Atlas Mountains, Taroudant is one of the most beautiful cities in Morocco, with a fascinating Berber souk
- Set in four acres of landscaped gardens filled with olive, palm and orange trees, Dar Zitoune was created in traditional Berber style architecture using only local materials
- Boasting 14 Bungalows and eight Suites, the accommodation is scattered throughout the gardens
- Taroudant is a walled city with five (old) main gates as well as some newer gates, the main sights of the city are the market place, the tanneries and the main squares: Assarag and Tameklalt
- The hotel boasts a 20m outdoor pool
Henna on the hands and the feet is one of the beauty symbols for Moroccan women, why not head to the spa so some Henna can be created on you.
It’s been a pleasure working with Ailine on the past two trips (Morocco and Iceland). Her efficiency, attention to detail and prompt action have been hugely valuable and ultimately led to the delivery of two hugely successful trips which our clients have been beyond impressed by.

In the heart of the region of Souss, located in the south of Morocco, and just a few miles away from the pink-walled city of Taroudant lies Dar Zitoune, translated to "house of the olives". Enjoy the year round North African sun. Home to a small spa with traditional Hammam, sauna and heated Jacuzzi. There are also a choice of massage treatments available. The chef prepares delicious cuisine with much of the fresh produce taken from their own organic gardens.
Best time to be there
Morocco is warm and sunny year round. The best time to visit is mid-February to June and September to December. Coastal Morocco is cooled by sea breezes. The peaks of the Atlas Mountains are snow-capped for most of the year.
