Enjoy Volubilis, Moulay Idriss and mountains from my sunny terrace, in the heart of Moulay Idriss Zerhoune. 20mins from Meknes and 5km from Volubilis.
An authentic, local moroccan welcome, in a traditional home restored with western standards.
Dar Zerhoune is fabulous! A traditionally restored moroccan home, with an authentic, local moroccan welcome. Your home away from home. From our two terraces you can enjoy views of Moulay Idriss, the mountains and the roman ruins of Volubilis. Perfect for relaxing, enjoying your dinner and watching the sunset. Just one hour walk to Volubilis from here (or ride a donkey!).
Dar Zerhoune is in the Holy City of Moulay Idriss Zerhoune, which boasts Moussems, local markets, roman ruins (including an aqueduct, roman baths with hot spring water), a main square where you can watch the world go by at the cafe's. Moulay Idriss is not full of tourists so you get to enjoy 'real morocco'.
You will be greeted with mint tea or coffee, breakfast is included as well as free WIFI internet. We have loads of local knowledge and travel experience as I am the first non muslim, western woman to open a guesthouse in Moulay Idriss. We offer traditional moroccan meals, and you can learn to cook in the community oven's, cook traditional breakfast breads or enjoy couscous with a local family.
Each ensuite room can sleep up to 3 and I have 6 rooms.
From Dar Zerhoune you can walk to the roman ruins of Volubilis, relax in the main square watching locals go about their day, shop in the souqs and experience Morocco without hustle bustle and tourists.

Moulay Idriss is a great little town, great atmosphere, not too touristy, between some steeps rocks and the green plains (in february). The city on the hill is only accesible by foot and donkey. Dar Zarhoune is a great guesthouse. Even in winter there is warmth, great bed, and the rainy afternoon was filled with baking and a walk to the community oven. What can I say, Volubilis is a great walk, the Roman bath, the people... go there, and you will definately fall in love like Rose did, and her house is just the best!
Wonderful stay at Rose's...warm welcome on the terrasse, comfy room, delicious breakfast and dinner, and lots of helpful information. Thanks to Rose, Hajiba, Kalta and Fatima (and apologies for the spellings!).
I would highly recommend a stay in Moulay Idriss. Rose welcomed us into the riad, showed us our rooms, then arranged for a fabulous English speaking guide who walked us all the way to Volubilis, explaining both the town and the Roman ruins. Rose was right- he was an EXCELLENT guide. We ate both supper and breakfast in the b & b and enjoyed the introduction to Moroccan food as well as the insights into the culture and country provided by Rose. Rose also arranged for a driver to take us the back way to Fez, giving us a wonderful look into the amazingly beautiful agricultural life of Morocco. Thank you!
Rose is the quintessential "hostess with the mostess"! We had such a lovely time there in Moulay Idriss. Rose could not have been more accommodating. We had two yummy meals there and our rooms were lovely, too. Really appreciated that hot water, too. My daughter's boyfriend proposed to her there on the rooftop amidst the many stars. Needless to say, a great time was had by all!
Im Vergleich zu anderen Unterkünften, wird bei Rose mit mehreren Mitteln dafür gesorgt, dass man im Winter im Zimmer nicht friert. Das Highlight war die beheizbare Decke auf der Matratze im Bett.
Anders als sonst hatten wir diesmal das Abendessen in der Unterkunft genommen. Rose saß dabei, was wahrscheinlich zu dieser lockeren und gesprächigen Runde mit den anderen Gästen führte. Das war toll.
Und wenn man Weihnachten dort verbringt und Glück hat, bekommt man auch wie wir ein kleines Weihnachtsgeschenk überreicht. :)
Miglior riad della vacanza! Ci hanno aspettato in piazza principale ed accompagnato a piedi fino al riad in una viuzza. Possono anche preparare dei piatti tipici per cena, gustosi ed abbondanti, lo stesso vale per la colazione. Dalla terrazza si gode di una bellissima vista sulla città fino a Volubilis. In inverno è freddo, ma c'è un calorifero portatile a scaldare la stanza e la coperta elettrica nei letti. L'unico difetto è che quando piove ci sono un po' di infiltrazioni d'acqua che bagnano le scale verso la terrazza rendendole scivolose.
Absolutely spectacular experience! Staying at Dar Zerhoune was certainly one of the highlights of my trip to Morocco. It was so nice to meet Rose and spend some time chatting with her! I felt right at home from the minute I walked in the door. Moulay Idriss is a great city to visit, quite different from the experience of larger cities like Fes and Meknès. Dinner was also incredible, and definitely something that should not be missed!
When I return to Morocco, I'll make sure to stay here again!
I am from New Zealand, currently living between Morocco and the UK! I love to travel, meet people, experience different cultures and the world.
I opened my guesthouse in 2007 as I loved to travel, and I loved people. It is in a lovely country town to allow people to experience real Moroccan life. I am one of two westerners living here and love the depth of life, and open heart, it gives me.
