Set above the cascades (waterfalls), Riad Cascades d'Ouzoud is a characterful traditional earth-built riad set in a superb scenic location next to the stunningly beautiful waterfalls of Ouzoud, the finest in Morocco. The décor is rustic with copper washbasins, lovely clay pots and plants and beautiful painted designs on doors. There are two terraces; the one on the roof is perfect for relaxing and taking in sun and scenery with spectacular view of the waterfall and mountains.

Riad Cascades d'Ouzoud is at an altitude of 1100m and the area can be cold in winter so it has wood fires to help keep you warm. Half board is included with dinner being good traditional food using local meat and vegetables.

Accommodation:  The 9 charming rooms are simply furnished and en suite; some rooms can accommodate an extra bed:

  • 6 rooms on the ground and first floor, all of which have fireplaces but don't require air-conditioning due to the earth construction;
  • 3 new suites on the roof terrace have air conditioning and heating, and one has its own terrace.

Location: Near Azilal, 2.5 hours' (150 km) scenic drive east north east of Marrakech or 6 hours south of Fez. 

It is set above the Cascades (waterfalls) d’Ouzoud, in the Middle Atlas Mountains and set at an altitude of 1100m.

Services and other points to note: Safe deposit boxes and laundry service available. The village can be cold in winter due to the high altitude and distance inland.

Meals: Half board is included. Dinner is good, tasty traditional food with option of French dishes if required. Local meat and vegetables are used - organic where possible.  Food and drinks can be served on the terraces.

Staff: Patrick, the owner, a former architect and interior decorator who was brought up in northern Morocco, has a wonderful sense of humour; he and his lovely Berber staff create a warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere.
