Le Jammoû, guesthouse in Morocco
Le JAMMOÛ guest-house nestles beside the river of the same name and is surrounded by small fields filled with fig and olive trees, separated by hedges of roses. This very comfortable establishment has been built and decorated with care, bringing together the Berber materials and themes (wattle walls decorated with typical Moroccan friezes and woodwork, hushed atmosphere, warm colours …).
You will find a high level of comfort and service (large rooms opening onto impressive landscapes, beautiful private terraces with fountains, spacious Italian showers, separate toilets, heating, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, discreet but attentive service,...).

Le JAMMOÛ is situated in the village of TABARKECHTE, 8km from the town centre of EL KELAAT M’GOUNA, 36km from the DADES Gorge and 79km from the town of OUARZAZATE.
You can walk through fields and along paths lined with roses and fruit trees which stand along the river, and visit the authentic Berber village of TABARKECHTE with its traditional houses.
On leaving Le JAMMOÛ with a good pair of walking shoes and after having crossed the river (where the whole family can enjoy a swim), you will come across the old village of IMIDR, in the middle of a sand dune but, nevertheless, with a water source which has irrigated its small lush fields for centuries. If you wish, for a few dirhams, you can share a meal with the only family that lives in this isolated village in the middle of the desert. This trip will leave you with unforgettable memories. After a short nap you can return to Le JAMMOÛ either the same way that you came or in a four-wheel drive which you will have reserved beforehand.
You will be pleasantly surprised by the beautiful site of BOUTAGHAR, about 10km from Le JAMMOÛ, where you will discover its steep red mountains.
In the town centre of EL KELAA, 8km away, you will be able to visit the rose water distillery. The roses are picked in the valley and if you are lucky enough to be here in May, you will be able to witness the very colourful and animated Rose Festival.
You can also visit the craft village, where you will find decorative objects, daggers and clothes. The Berber carpet weavers will also be happy to open their doors to you..
The Dadès Gorge
For a complete change of scenery from the Rose Valley, don't forget to go and see the DADES Gorge.
Les Kasbahs d'AIT BEN HADDOU
Finally, if you are an early riser, take your camera along the OUARZAZATE road and get some breath-taking photos of the sun rise over the desert dunes. Take the time to visit the village of AIT BENHADDOU while you are there…
Le JAMMOÛ regularly organises musical evenings where you will discover Berber music and songs performed by local musicians and dancers.
