"Throughout the year La Roseraie offers peacefully relaxation"
Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas mountains just 60 kilometres from Marrakech. The Unique feature of La Roseraie is its wonderful gardens.
In January and February a winter garden surrounded by snow capped mountains. The previous seasons pomegranates are left on the tree to explode and feed wild birds. Almond tress blossom in January follwed by flowering Quince.
March is spring time in the Atlas, there are abundant wild flowers and the stunning Wisteria flowers.
April and May brings the big showing of roses with countless blossoms, the whole property is filled with the most exquisite aroma.
Early June brings the first wave of summer heat, the mountain water stream running through the property dries up from mid July until October. Selected rose varieties are in bloom every month until December.
Throughout the year La Roseraie offers peacefully relaxation, with a Spa/Hammam facilities and an outdoor (unheated) pool. There are beautiful walks in the area and the opportunity to ride out horses from the stable at reasonable prices.
The property is Moroccan owned and run with a warm and welcoming style of hospitality. Guests should be aware that the pace of life here is relaxed, service is not the quickest and the room décor is somewhat dated.
Generous sized Cottage style rooms well spaced throughout the property each with a patio
Almost a small apartment with bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and fireplace. Cottage style patio and garden views
The large domain at La Roseraie provides fresh fruits and vegetables to ensure each guest the best culinary quality.
Even olive oil is produced on site, pressed the old fashion way to preserve optmal taste and health benefits.
Lunch and dinner can be served on the terrace by the main pool, indoors in the rustic style dining room or Moroccan lounge.
True idyllic sanctuary, far away from the fast lane pace and city stress, at a 1000 m altitude with a real microclimate, fresh and vivifying, the Domaine answers to all sorts of expectations.
The High Atlas Mountains offers endless recreational possibilities on foot or horseback, rambling and trekking is organised from our grounds with guides and logistics.
Amateurs of tradition will take pleasure in visiting surrounding villages. Others will enjoy longer walks through the Ouirgane Valley to Azzaden and the culminating Toubkal summit, discovering along the way a generous Berber culture made of humility, sharing mint tea and TANOURT, bread baked in special clay ovens.
Back at the hotel, clients will lounge around one the 3 available swimming pools or take advantage of the PINEWOOD Center facilities where hammam and massages will await them emphasising the use of many local products such as soaps, clays, salts and therapeutic plants from the property.
And for the passionate ones, two clay tennis courts are at hand.
"A true paradise retreat contrasting the hub bub of 21st century western living. The hotel and its rose garden grounds are all beautiful and continuously maintained by the staff. The staff are like a team always smiling and willing to help. There is an under used luxurious spa where we had massages and beauty treatments at reasonable prices. Hamams and massages all carried out by local staff. Nothing conveyor belt or that packaged feel you sometimes get in top class hotels.
The food was local and plentiful, perhaps could become repetitive for the long stayer. We were there for 10 nights, along side mostly French guests who generally stayed 2/3 nights.
The owner Nebil was most gracious and unassuming as a host but embraced our every need. We had fresh fruit brought to the room, he even became our mountain guide one morning but most of all he became our friend. Thanks Nebil.
If you want peace, mountain walks, local food and beautiful surroundings, then this is the place for you. Worth upgrading to a suite, huge rooms all individually designed ours backed on to the river and had an 8 feet wide bed!"

"La Roseraie is a seriously excellent place for a stay if one likes beauty, the natural world, tranquility and great hospitality. The hotel accommodation is well planned and rooms are spread out over the grounds so that guests have privacy and their own space. The bar, pool and restaurant areas are attractive and encourage both good company and solitude - depending on one's preferences. The staff are terrific and will always try to predict what one needs. Food is good and drinks not too expensive.
One might get all of this at quite a few hotels in Morocco but La Roseraie trumps them all with the magnificent gardens and acres of colourful meadow, woodland and hillside. The place is quite simply stunningly beautiful in April ( when I went ) and full of resident and migrating birds. If you have an interest in wildlife then you need to go no further - this place has it all; birds, butterflies, amphibians and reptiles ( e.g. Tortoise and Chameleon ). Special mention use go to the rose gardens - are there any better in England ?
The location of the hotel makes it a good base for trips to the various sites ( e.g. Tin Mel ) and the mountain passes. There are many roads and tracks to explore at leisure either on foot or by car. Alternatively just hang out by one of the three pools and relax. Nabil, the host, takes particular care to meet and talk with all his guests and is a mine of information and advice. By the way, if you like photography this a great location and you will never tire of exploring the immediate area."

Situated close to the traditional small Berber village of Ouirgane, La Roseraie is well situated to access, by car, some of the best trekking in the Atlas Mountains. Ouirgane is a beautiful sleepy village with large weekly market and a traditional Moroccan atmosphere throughout. A close drive to some stunning lakes and valleys.
