Fodor's Expert Review Touda Ecolodge

Village Zawiyat Oulmzi, Ait Bougmez, Béni Mellal-Khénifra, Morocco

This fantastic lodge occupies a prize position in the valley's deepest village, atop a hill with an unbeatable vantage point. All rooms have en suite bathrooms and there’s a traditional hammam available on advance request. The living room in the center of the house has a fireplace and a wood-burning stove, so you’ll be warm in winter. The food is traditional and fresh, using local ingredients supplied in abundance by the valley. You can take cooking lessons, learning the secrets of Amazigh recipes like marinades, spice blends, and couscous. The team here also offers a photography course with experienced photographer Jean-Christophe Monnier, who will help you improve your photo-taking techniques while also helping you discover the region.
