"The best holiday in the most comfortable house. If you want to relax there is the pool with the soporific sounds of the ocean in the background. If you want to explore then Tiznit with it's silver market is one of the most charming Moroccan towns. Or Merlift, almost a throw back to the sixties with very slightly more sophisticated shopping. I shall certainly be back."
"We spent a week there in December and had an awesome time. The weather was great, all day sun and warm. The villa is an ideal place to relax, walk straight to the beach or enjoy the pool. We have small kids and they enjoyed everything very much. Nearby Tiznit has a great market to do shopping. Authentic small villages nearby for anyone who enjoys dodging the crowds…..Linda is great with helping prepare and sort everything out. One of our best vacations ever!"
"A really stunning villa, with lots of little luxurys. Kids loved the place, all day cleaner made life a pleasure. Great place to base yourself and explore the local area, or even just stay put. Definitely coming back and highly recommend it."
The seaside village of Aglou (distance approx 3km) provides some amenities, including a grocery store,bakery and a variety of beach side restaurants. Down at the harbour, local fishermen sell fresh fish, squid, and lobster (seasonal)
A little further inland, the walled city of Tiznit serves as capital to the Berber people and is renowned for its silver market. The local Souks (markets) also sells fresh fruit, fish, vegetables, bread, meat and a variety spices and herbs.

Between the Park and Aglou is the only breeding ground of the very rare Bald Headed Ibis.
