Morocco is a country where all your senses are teased at a time. After getting marvelled and intoxicated with the - sometimes rough and so different- beauty, the sounds, the flavours, the smells, the colours and the impressions of the Medina, a driver from La Pause picked us up at our Riad to take us to La Pause. After almost an hour driving, which I enjoyed absorving the landscape and crazy traffic, we arrived to the isolated oasis that is La Pause.
Mixing local materials and technics with exquisite taste, La Pause managed to unite the experience of basic accommodation with top-notch service. No electricity, spartan shower/toilet facilities and little more than beduin tents as restaurant and rooms, are compensated by the charme of the place, the tranquility and beauty of the landscape and the 1001-night atmosphere in the lovely rooms.
We stayed for a night and enjoyed amazing meals for lunch, dinner (candle light!) and breakfast. The service is excellent, the local - and of course homemade- food abundant and absolutely delicious, accompanied with good local wines.
Relaxing by the swimming pool - surrounded by olive trees -, a walk or horse riding are some of the ways of enjoying this fantastic place. I went horseriding before sunset, a breathtaking experience.
We were with a large group so I got to see several rooms, and I think mine was the best: the one located most distant from the reception building, with only 3 walls and a (thick) curtain!, offering a magnifiscent view, lots of privacy and the comfort of a good bed and warm local decoration features.
La Pause was an unforgetable experience, enjoying nature, the most beautiful night sky and a joy for all the senses.
