Fodor's Expert Review Auberge Ayouze

Douar Asfalou, 2 km (1 mile) north of Aït Ben Haddou, Aït Ben Haddou, Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco

This restored pisé home maintains an aura of authenticity thanks to typical architectural features, like carved Berber motifs and ceilings woven from reeds and date palms. Clean, cozy, en suite rooms are simply decorated, and most have a private terrace overlooking the valley with the kasbah in the distance. The warmth of the French-Moroccan hosts makes up for the lack of heating in winter. Book the half-board option as the guesthouse is outside the village.
