From Marrakesh or Terre des Etoiles, head for the Ourika valley to visit the aromatic organic garden of Nectarome. This valley is mainly populated by Berbers and gradually rushes into the Moroccan High Atlas. Despite its proximity to Marrakesh, it is still considered a relatively unspoilt valley.

Dinner and overnight at the camp

Day 2: AGAFAY DESERT
This one-day getaway invites you to walk to the heart of a Berber village. You will leave the lodge in the morning to sink into the immensity of the desert of Agafay. You will arrive at lunch time in the village where you will live the Berber hospitality in its most noble sense: around a traditional meal of couscous.
Back at the camp, visit the incredible desert gardens, and discover the permaculture. Then a Moroccan cooking court will allow you to prepare your dinner yourself!
Night at camp

Or the small cheeses of goat farmers of a Female Cooperative. The Gardens of Villa Morocco, an address nestled in a forest of Thuyas, will serve you a country lunch.
Your trip will then take you to Essaouira, fortified port city of the eighteenth century, whose medina has preserved its authenticity, a unique charm and atmosphere that you will permeate while staying in a traditional riad. Dinner at Taros restaurant

Day 4: ESSAOUIRA
After a breakfast on the patio or on the terrace of your riad, go explore the Medina and meet its artisans and artists whose galleries and stalls populate the streets of the medina of Essaouira. The charming little fishing port will be the perfect place for a good lunch!
This day will end with a traditional treatment in the hammam of the riad, followed by an oriental massage ... Dinner and overnight at the Riad

Audacious project nestled in the heart of the arid lands of Agafay, Terre des Etoiles offers visitors a different kind of experience of the desert. Resulting from a committed approach, the camp provides guests the opportunity to take in, in an unusual accommodation, all the magic of this striking environment. It is in a tent, combining tradition and modernity, that in all privacy, they enjoy the most rejuvenating of stays.

Certainly well suited to relaxation, this place from another time is just as much suited to discovery. Theatre of a beautiful palette of activities close to the land and the stars, the camp / camp lodge is also the starting point of many escapades throughout these exceptional landscapes.
Concerned with the environment in which it sits, choosing Terre des Etoiles also means heeding the call of an adventure marked by sustainability. Here indeed, the whole team is working to adhere to the prerogatives of responsible management in particular in term of waste treatment and use of the water. Efforts that have been welcomed by obtaining the Green Key Label, the first international environmental label for tourist accommodation and catering.

Your Riad in Essaouira:
Villa Maroc set the tone for the concept we call "Riad" and the rest of Morocco followed. Located in the heart of the Medina of Essaouira on the site of a residence of former notable Mogador, Villa Morocco has kept the architectural heritage and the friendliness of the place intact. Tradition and modernity have given way to the harmony of shapes and colours in the image of a beautiful work of art jealously protected at the large Atlantic castle that is Essaouira-Mogador. The quality of your stay is just as good as that of a large and luxurious hotel.
