Dar Infiane

Guesthouse in Tata

Tata’s old kasbah, perched above the palmeraie (palm grove), has been turned into a Green Key guesthouse. Off a carpet-strewn central courtyard lie 10 rooms, in which the French owners have kept the original eccentricities such as low beams intact. The dar (house) has both loyal fans and detractors, with some guests raving about magical evenings on the rooftop terrace in the still of the Sahara night, while others criticising the service.
