The Best Villa Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay. We arrived on Saturday evening and were met by the house staff who had a delicious meal waiting for us. Once we ate we were shown to our rooms and settled in to the gorgeous villa. The villa was comfortable and spacious for the 14 people in our party. The rooms had all the necessary amenities as well as AC. There are numerous balconies and seating areas around the villa indoors where we relaxed and enjoyed Moroccan tea and cakes.

The pool was lovely and the children spent most days swimming and playing around the /villa. The pet turtles were lovely and the children enjoyed following them around all day.

The meals were absolutely delicious and nothing was too much trouble for Touria the housekeeper. We went on trips into the town with Imad and he was on hand to help with anything we needed. Touria organised to amazing excursions, one to Agadir and one to Tifnit where we took a donkey ride through an Oasis.

It was a lovely place to stay and was memorable in so many ways! The hospitality of the staff was further extended when my 3yr old daughter forgot her favourite Teddy Bear at the Villa as we were in a rush to the airport, I emailed Olivia and the Bear is currently travelling back to us via land, sea and air!!! We will definitely be going back soon to this lovely place!

Fantastique!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve durant 10 jours au Palais des sables. Ce Riad est magnifique, décoré et aménagé avec beaucoup de goût. Toutes les chambres sont spacieuses et très agréables, avec salle de bain attenante. La literie très confortable. Tout est nickel!

La piscine est grande, très propre et bien entretenue, tout comme le jardin. L'endroit est top, exactement comme sur les photos et le descriptif. Il est situé à l'intérieur de la Médina ce qui est très agréable pour aller facilement se balader dans la ville.

Olivia est très accueillante et nous a bien aidée sur l'organisation des transferts. Elle met à disposition toutes les bonnes adresses de Taroudant et des environs à disposition avec des commentaires personnels et des références de prix locaux

L'exception du lieu vient aussi et surtout du personnel présent dans la maison, d'une gentillesse, d'une discrétion et d'une confiance absolue, au petit soin pour nous aider et nous accompagner tout au long de notre séjour.

La cuisinière du Riad est tout simplement exceptionnelle. Nous nous sommes régalés tous les jours de ces délicieux plats marocains.

Pour résumer, le Palais des Sables est l'endroit idéal pour passer des vacances en famille et entre amis, se reposer, déconnecter et savourer.

un moment de bonheur

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé en famille des vacances merveilleuses.

Comment en parler ?

Nous pourrions répondre comme nos petits-enfants quand nous leur demandions ce qu'ils ont préféré : TOUT.

C'est vrai, nous avons, bien sûr, apprécié le climat de Taroudant. Mais nous avons surtout aimé l'ambiance de votre Palais. Nous étions 16, mais pas les uns sur les autres. Nous avons profité des différentes ambiances que vous avez créées.

Nous pensons avoir beaucoup de points communs avec vous : la qualité de votre accueil, les couleurs, la décoration (Blanche partage vos goûts), les livres (qui parlent de vous) et bien sûr le choix du personnel avec qui nous avons eu un contact privilégié.

C'est avec émotion que nous avons quitté votre Palais hier après-midi, et c'est avec émotion que nous en partageons les souvenirs savoureux.

C'est sûr, nous avons l'intention de revenir.

A très bientôt,

Blanche et José de Penaranda

Magic stay at Le Palais des Sables

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic stay at Le Palais des Sables. Great value experience with regenerating sun in the middle of the Winter.

Taroudant is magical places where you appreciate the gentle pleasures of life, different and way more relaxing than trendy Marrakech.

The Palais des Sables is perfect for families. You can enjoy the heated swimming pool most of the day (incredible in December) and at night you can just chill out by the fireplace.

Sunsets on the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains with the city walls as the background are special.

The staff is wonderful and the food fantastic, making the most of the local delicacies (We had the best couscous ever ).

Make sure you pay a visit to the local Souk for spices and carpets.
