Excellent place to stop on a trip to the Atlas Mountains. Beautiful gardens and a restaurant with excellent food. Christine, the Swiss owner has done a fabulous job with this place, and has something of an inspirational story to share. Her contribution to the local community and economy is a standard any expat should aspire to! Highly recommended. Make the time for lunch!
Nice place, very hospitable host from Switzerland. Recommended!
