Built in earth, it is soft to the eye and to the touch, it is a peaceful place that products on its visitors an extraordinary sensation of quietness and peace. Its thick adobe walls shelter a lush garden and home is naturally fresh in summer and warm in winter. DarZahia offers its guests a true well-being stay in Taroudant.
