Welcome to The Beautiful Mountain Riad,
To help make everyone's stay the best I just ask that people are respectful of others staying at the riad and leave the riad how they find it.
Please wash up and clean the kitchen after cooking to stop any insect problems.
You will find supplies for breakfast on the top shelf inside the fridge this shelf is for everyone. Please feel free to leave your food on any other shelf and don't eat others food.
If you leave food on the top shelf it may well be eaten by others!!!
It would be a great help if you have a car if you could take any full dustbin bags to the dustbins in Taghazout on your way out as there is no refuse collection in the mountains. :)
This is Africa so please be careful with the water, please try not to leave taps running and take short showers.
There is a washing machine available at the riad please ask if you would like to use it. There is a 40 Dirham charge per wash.
If you need any help with anything or you have any questions during your stay please do not hesitate to ask I am always happy to help.
Hope You enjoy your stay !!
Quelle magnifique endroit avec un hôte non moins excellent!
Un lieu propice à la détente, loin de la fournaise et le tumulte d'Agadir!!
This has got to be one of my favourite AirBnB accommodations, period. Sam and Silvy welcomed us with open arms and made sure we had everything we needed, and more. As I was running The Unconventional Retreat for the 1st time, I was a little worried that things may go wrong. But I couldn't have hoped for a better place to kick off the activities. We managed to truly disconnect and recharge our batteries. Everything just clicked. From the traditional layout of the house, to the amazing atmosphere created at night with the candle lights, to the heaps of Moroccan cushions, rugs and sun. The Riad is set in the quiet mountains 2.9kms away from the hustle and bustle of Taghazout. And if you're coming as a bunch of friends, a couple, or on your own, you'll be sure to meet some really interesting people at some point on your trip. Oh and if you're coming during winter, make sure to come with warm clothes, it gets chilly at night. Still hesitating? Don't, book it! You won't regret it.
Sam was a great host ! the riad is amazing, very huge and confortable. We were a party of 10 and it was just perfect to stay there. We booked the whole riad for us and everyone could have their own privacy. Sam was very helpful to get taxi, food and good plans around. We booked massage at home, that was the best. I warmly recommand Sam's riad ++++ !!
A moins de 5 minute de Taghazout village, emplacement ideal pour ceux qui souhaitent profiter du charme du lieu et des paysages tout en étant loin du tumultes de la ville (qui peux s’avérer infernal en été). Le Riad est très sympathique avec un espace ouvert des plus agréable avec une mention spéciale pour la terrasses où nous passions la plupart du temps.
Le mâitre des lieux, Sam, en plus d’être acceuillant et très sympa sait se montrer discret.
Aucun regret, super riad, super séjour.

About the Host, Sam
Im originally from the north of England .
I came to morocco the first time 11 years ago and fell in love. Then 5 years ago I returned for a 5 week holiday and after 2 weeks i rented a house for a year and decided to stay. five years later im still here Having spent 4 years living in Taghazout I longed for something a bit more traditional and less touristy and then found a run down riad in Ait bihi 2.9km into the mountains behind Taghazout and after spending the last 11 months renovating my Riad it has now become the hidden gem just outside Taghazout.
With my years of experience in morocco I can show you the hidden beauty of Morocco and make sure you have a stay to remember.
Your here for a good time not a long time ;)
