Dar Tassa, literally meaning the home of motherly love in the local Berber language, extends a heartfelt welcome to all who wander to our corner of the world. A luxury House in a serene, mountain setting, Dar Tassa is located just over 40 minutes drive from Marrakech inside Toubkal National Park, home to the highest peak in North Africa (Jbel Toubkal 4165 m).

Our cozy refuge provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, with all the modern comforts and added charm of traditional Moroccan hospitality. From the moment you arrive we greet you with a steaming cup of mint tea. The wild nature of this place and the warm nature of its people help you understand that marhaba, "welcome", is more than an expression, it's our way of life here.

What really puts our refuge on the map is its location in the shadow of the Takkerkhort Reserve, a long established sanctuary for the regal Barbary Sheep, endemic to Morocco and protected under the jurisdiction of the Eaux et Forets (Water and Forests Department of the Ministry).

We can even arrange for resident experts to guide you into the refuge to give your binoculars a better chance to spot some wild and wooly members of this magnificent endangered species.

Dar Tassa resides in the shadow of the Takherkhort Reserve, a sanctuary for Toubkal's most noble species, the Barbary Sheep. The Amaseen gazelle reserve, a must see in neighboring Marigha, promises this regal endangered species will have fighting chance to restore its declining population. Be sure to bring your binoculars, as over 50 species of bird - from the Grey Partridge to the Alpine Accentor and Chough - make their nest among the Park's natural wonders. And if you should decide to set out on a flora and fauna discovery trek, don't be startled to find reptiles underfoot that recall ancient fossils come to life.
