Chez Max is the original Moroccan 'ethno-chic' earth guest house. Built in a bibical Berber village called Tagadert and run like a home.
24 kms from central Marrakech, Chez Max is the original Moroccan 'ethno-chic' guesthouse. Attractively and stylishly built in the local rammed-earth style inside a biblical Berber village, it’s run just like a home, with a small team of discreet staff taking care of all cooking and cleaning needs. And talk about tranquillity: only the chirping of birds, a call to prayer or a passing donkey’s braying will interrupt the blissful serenity.
Built around three courtyards, the house has six comfortable rooms, each different and all charming. The entire property can be booked out, and is ideal for small groups of friends or family.
Two pools provide a perfect summer cool-off, with one of them also open and heated throughout the winter months. The four walled gardens are beautiful all year round and full of hidey-holes, while the surrounding village, gentle hills and olive groves provide just as much natural distraction, be it on a stroll or viewed from the roof terrace. Tasty Moroccan and European meals are prepared by magical housekeeper Saida, including her famous cous-cous with caramelised onions and raisins.
Saida can also prepare packed lunches (on request) for those undertaking one of Chez Max’s wide selection of excursions into the Atlas Mountains or along the coast. Taxis in and out of Marrakech are available to book for £44 return (slightly more if returning after 8pm).
