A charming boutique villa that oozed ambience. I felt like Rudyard Kipling in Africa. Our room was furnished in antiquated (dare I say, 'safari' style) furniture. The wardrobe/chest of drawers was a beautifully crafted leather and wooden chest on wheels, the writing desk a portable wooden chest with leather inlaid writing surface and the wooden framed chairs foldable with stretched leather seats. A peaceful central patio/courtyard area fills the villa with light from the glass roofed top that opens during the day allowing the little local sparrows in. View from the top of the villa is great and it is 500m from the Bus station.

The rest of the town, which I may add, is not very attractive, is north of the medina. We ventured out several times and had some new ...
... blue and white fishing port with a reputation for strong winds, attracting hippies in the old days, and wind surfers today.
It had a fortified wall, lots of seagulls and fishing boats, a Medina and souk and we happily spent our time wandering around looking at everything. Jen finally got her Tarjine pot - for about AU$6 !
We met Hamid for lunch and he treated us to a goodbye seafood feast at the fish market. Every kind of seafood was there and he bought way ...
... at the winery was also very good Moroccan cuisine. By the time we were well on the way to feeling no pain we went to the Argan oil cooperative which was only 5 minutes drive away. This is the only place in the world that Argan oil is produced, and the oil is supposed to be very good for what ails you! We will see as my feet are dry and cracking and Argan is supposed to clear up this affliction. Liz bought ...
... vegetables and fruits. He does not speak french, but tries hard to help me and is very friendly (without the usual madame,vous voulez company?). The tangerines are in season right now and are simply the best. They are very small but soooo juicy and little to no seeds. Then there are huge pomegrantes that are good but a pain in the butt to eat, and fresh, small bananas for a daily snack. Any summer vegetables we have ...
