The Maison Boutchrafine team does everything to make you feel comfortable, so you can enjoy an authentic and relaxing desert experience. The food which was prepared for us for dinner and breakfast was very generous and tasted wonderfully. Don't miss sunset on the hill just behind the maison Boutchrafine, it's magic!

We were looking for an authentic experience in Morocco but nothing prepared us for Maison Boutchrafine. Hassan, the owner has hand built the entire compound over the years. He is an artist, chef and diplomat. If, it was not for him, I probably would have not stayed and missed out on an amazing experience. I am a city girl, a... More

The 'hotel' is a collection of mud houses but with great style and very pretty decor. It is simple but in a really wonderful way. The owner Hassan as many reviewers say goes out his way to ensure his guests have the best possible time. I highly recommend it! We ate outside beneath a sky covered in stars and indeed... More

We spent 16 days in Morocco, from Marrakech and travelled through to Fes staying at 8 riads/b&bs along the way. Without a doubt Hassan provided us with the most amazing food found in the whole of Morocco! The whole team really went out of their way to make our stay memorable and enjoyable, from meeting us in Erfoud so we... More

A magical place in the middle of nowhere, still not far from Erfoud. Hassan is the best cook in the area. If you are looking for something different and total relax, go here! I have been 7 times to this area and always come back here, feels like home

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Maison Boutchrafine is located in the mountains of boutchrafine in a place known for its fossils, a few km from Erfoud, which features the famous festival of dates. And its existence between the touristic city Marzouga and Erfoud. From the Maison Boutchrafine , you can admire the view of the dunes of Erg Chebbi. You take the whole environment to be a special place where time stops. The nomadic Hassan was gradually built a small house, which mainly made of mud and stone with his friends, who played an important role in converting a small building to a magical and special place to stay. Currently, Maison Boutchrafine has four bedrooms with single style and all with private bathroom. The hands of Hassan Nomad with his skills make each corner of the house to have its own personality. It is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the wonderful view of the surroundings. Our team will be happy to accompany you to discover the oasis, dunes and surrounding cities with its traditional souks. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can take a ride on a camel for a night in the desert and see the sunrise over the dunes. Maison Boutchrafine, with its friendly and welcoming personality, invite you to an unforgettable and magical stay in this beautiful part of the world. ... more   less
