ABOUT

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. 

ROOMS

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. 

FACILITIES

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.

MORE INFO

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).
 

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!
