Step into our friendly haven.

As a guest, you are more than pampered; you are adopted into the free and noble spirit of Berber life and hospitality. As Jules the donkey ensures your safe arrival, Jacqueline welcomes you with open arms. Omar tends the garden, growing delicious vegetables which are cooked by Rashida and presented to you by Mohammed. Dinners are comunal, and while you experience a tagine that will make your heart sing, one of us will be lighting the fireplace in your room and tucking a hot water bottle in your bed. Our rooms, with vistas to the many hues of ‘the mountain of mountains’, speak for themselves.

Welcome. Relax. You are home.

Our rooms are like brothers and sisters bonded by warmth, character and an eagerness to be enjoyed by the living. They all have extremely snuggly beds, fireplaces, showers and toilets.

Yan, Sin, Kran and Kouss are in the main house. Mouss, Sdez and Sbat, in the garden house, are bigger types for sharing. They think they’re very upbeat as they feature electricity – a novelty in the family. Then there is the Tree House, privately situated at the far end of the douar's gardens. All strong personalities who, if they were issues, would resolve them with a damn good pillow fight!

Please note, we have animals at the douar:
Jules, the donkey, and a lovely family of Shitsu dogs.
All our animals have up to date rabies vaccinations.

Oh, and free wifi is available throughout the douar.

Douar Samra, a traditional Berber home, doesn't intrude; it’s in the very fabric of its people and its natural element: Imlil Valley, the High Atlas Mountains... Prepare to be breathtaken!

Lovingly restored and furnished by Jacqueline, Samra is surrounded by gardens bursting with flowers and vegetables and shaded by fruit and nut trees. From the roof terraces, you will enjoy the sun and the stunning views. The dining room is, with a big open fire, a cosy place to chill out with the other guests. The peacefulness of the house and village fosters a ‘let’s just relax’ mood with plenty of quiet corners to hide away in. We recommend you our Hammam with wood-burning stoves.

We offer you guided excursions for trekking as well as other activities. Have a look. At Douar Samra, the exotic is familiar.
