  • Travels | Glamping in Morocco: Scarabeo Camp

    Looking for a special place on holiday? The perfect Instagram? We have a place just for you in Morocco.

    35 kilometers from Marrakech, in the small rocky desert of Agafay. The camp siting affords stunning 360° views of the Agafay's barren grandeur and beyond to the snow-capped Atlas mountains.

    Each private sleeping area consists of a nomad tent of thick white cotton with regular and confortable beds (twin or double beds). Guests can recline in a traditional Moroccan lounge strewn with ethnic cushions or put pen to paper as Papa Hemingway did at a wooden writing desk. A stretched cotton panel screens the entrance to each tent, for you to silently savour this mystical desert landscape still untouched by tourism.

  • Travels | Formerly known as the zaouïa of Derkaoua: riad Dar Kawa

    Dar Kawa was built right in the beginning of the 17th century. At that time, the house was the zaouïa of Derkaoua, a religious building of the brotherhood of the same name. In the middle of these walls with Saadian architecture, one prayed, meditated, exchanged in total serenity. Dar Kawa has preserved its tranquillity and its revitalizing energy.
