Thirty minutes from Marrakech, on the road to Amizmiz, which leads to the dam and to Lake Lalla Takerkoust, a path passes through a Berber village and comes to a unique, almost unnoticeable spot, nestled in the depression of a 7-hectare estate. Philippe Taburiaux, passionate about art and architecture, imagined, designed and constructed an unclassifiable building, as contemporary in its lines as it is rustic in its aesthetics. With help from locals and using traditional and rural techniques, he built a palace that is perfectly integrated into the countryside, a place that both surprises with its brutal frankness and fascinates with its evident presence. Unpretentious, the Palais Paysan lends a good part of itself to the countryside, to space and to nature as well as to the privilege of silence, meetings, welcome, and cordiality, in order to become an “oasis of peace.” A personal interpretation of peasant luxury.
Fresh and tasty cooking, a nuanced mixture of Moroccan and European dishes
Our 18 guest rooms face the Atlas Mountains. Bay windows open onto 4,167-metre high Toubkal mountain, which is snow-capped in the winter and lost in the haze during summer. Each guest room has a terrace - either a balcony on higher floors or a patio that opens onto the garden.
If you want to relax, have nice views and great service, look no further than Le Palais Paysan. My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with 5 days of relaxing there. We enjoyed the Haman, a day in Marrakech, horseback riding, massages, a day hiking in the Atlas mountains and simply relaxing by the pool, playing Scrabble and reading. Of, and eating! Anything we wanted, Mustafa and his staff organized.
In other words, if you just want to get away from it all, this is a great place
A chacun de mes séjours , j'essaie d'y passer. Le lieu est vraiment magique, une carte postale dont on ne se lasse pas d'admirer les nuances de lumière tout au long de la journée. Il fallait oser poser un hôtel là, y arriver se mérite mais le bonheur est au bout de la piste. Le Palais Paysan est un havre de paix , douillet cocon permettant de digérer le mouvement perpétuel de Marrakech.
On y est accueilli en ami, traité en hôte de marque, avec gentillesse et discrétion.
