I initially chose this accommodation due to it's position in Trip advisor and the quality of reviews. I contacted Laurent and we discussed the cost which included a dinner for two and transfer plus the usual breakfasts. I felt at all times safe and happy with arrangements and arrived at the airport with no worries... this continued for the 5 days I stayed at Laurent's home. After the initial classroom time, where you are fully orientated we came back from the Souk for our first dinner. As all have said previously, fab. What I liked tho was the fact you shared your table with the other guests irrespective of nationality but you manage, what a laugh. Laurent included a bottle of wine between two. Water is put into your room, a tray of tea or coffee after hours haggling on the roof was special. You are offered a drink by Laurent which includes these lovely spicy snacks. We did the Atlas trip, you pay at the end when you get your bill, wear trainers if possible, you walk quite a bit 3 x 2hour treks. You are taken via a driver to Amismis where you are greeted by your English speaking guide. You walk through the village going to the communal bakery, the pottery where they make Tagines, I bought 2 for 20dhs, about £1.50, we then walked through the mountain upto1,400feet where you stop for a tea in a rural home, you can get henna onto hands and feet here, from there to a youth hostel for a fab lunch then back to catch the taxi and home for 6pm. We spent some time on the roof each afternoon chilling, this was fab. There are 3 rooms upstairs, 1 - twin, 2 doubles, all the same size. There is also a room off the courtyard which seems to be used for the odd day but not regularly. The position of the Riad is perfect, we did not get lost once, a very positive trip.
