LA MAISON ANGLAISE | Taroudant

Renowned for its excellent food and delightful, knowledgeable Moroccan staff, La Maison Anglaise is an ethically run, traditionally furnished modern guest house set in the Taroudant medina that offers very flexible sleeping options and received a Green Key award in 2012. The cooks can cater for special diets including gluten free, vegan and vegetarian - for which they have won an award.

Voted one of Lonely Planet's top 10 eco stays in the world for 2014.

La Maison Anglaise is the home base of Naturally Morocco’s "Real Morocco" programme of activities and guided trips, which gives opportunities for guests to gain a genuine insight into local urban and rural society, culture, wildlife and the environment. It is an ideal place in which to share experiences with like-minded guests in a "large family" atmosphere and is just 10 minute's walk from the souk.
