Lonely Planet review
Setting new standards in Zagora, Dar Sofian is a stunning desert oasis. The fabulous pisé edifice was constructed by a team from Skoura, while Fassi craftsmen executed the acres of tilework inside. The decor is a successful take on contemporary Moroccan with a mix of modern beds and bathrooms, antique furnishings and traditional detailing. Massages, cooking courses and excursions can all be arranged but guests seem reluctant to leave the palm-fringed pool.
If you can't spend the night, it's certainly worth booking lunch here to sample Zagora's speciality cabbage couscous and enjoy a dip in the pool.
Our independent authors have visited Riad Dar Sofian and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Drâa Valley.
