The house is built around three different courtyards.  There are only six rooms, all different and all charming.  The chirping of birds and the occasional braying of a donkey and the call to prayer, will be the only sounds to intrude upon the silence.  The small team of discreet staff take care of all your cooking needs and keep the house spotlessly clean.  

Two swimming pools are welcome in the warmer months and one is heated in the winter, the gardens are beautiful all year round and the village and its gentle hills and olive groves invite you to stroll peacefully around, contemplating stunning natural scenery.

Tasty Moroccan and European meals are prepared by Saida the housekeeper and cook who has a magic touch when it comes cooking.  Traditional salads, tagines (lamb, beef, fish and vegetarian), and her famous couscous with caramelised ognions and rasins leave one feeling grateful to be alive!  Fresh fruit salads and home made Moroccan pastries with mint tea served on the top roof terrace overlooking the stunning olive groves, simple berber earth village scenes and the Houuz plane beyond.  Breakfast is served either in your room, or in any courtyard or garden you choose (the house can always offer both sun or shade as it has four peaceful walled gardens, facing in all directions to suit). Packed lunches / picnic baskets are available on request for those who wish to go exploring for the day (to the lake or further up into the Atlas mountians).

We can also offer you a selection of excursions from the house, both in Marrakech and to the Atlas or the coast.  Taxis in and out of town are available to book for £44 per return journey (slightly more if returning after 8pm).

Ideal for small groups of friends or family get togethers.  

IF YOU WANT TO 'GO BERBER' IN STYLE AND COMFORT - CHEZ MAX IS THE ULTIMATE PLACE TO STAY...

“Shhh, let's keep this place a secret!”
Reviewed 31 August 2012 on Trip Advisor

After having trawled the internet for a last minute holiday for myself and my three children I was convinced that I wouldn't find what I was looking for. I wanted somewhere interesting, I didn't want noise or hassle or hoards of people but I did want to have the option of excursions that would engage me and my three teenagers. I found all of this but I am a little reluctant to tell you because I'd really rather keep it all a secret. I realise however, that this is a bit selfish so I've decided to come clean...
If you're looking for somewhere off the beaten track that appeals to your sense of adventure...and yet feels safe enough and comfortable enough for your children and your parents...I think you've found it! Chez Max is an ideal location for two families or for a group of friends to relax, eat well, keep cool in the pools and to stroll around the village. When you want to explore it's easy to arrange to get into Marrakech or to venture further out into the Atlas Mountains.
The photos show you what a beautiful place it is but you don't get a real sense of the layout. It's built on many levels which really gives it a magical feel. There are also different 'hideaways' which would allow a large, extended family or groups of friends to spread out and enjoy time together or alone.
We enjoyed our week at Chez Max so much that all of my children (aged 18, 17 and 13) and I are already planning a return visit!
