Riad Dar Sofian


About Riad Dar Sofian

The Riad Dar Sofian is surrounded by palm trees, just on the quiet edge of Zagora, set in the heart of the Zagora palm grove. This high quality kasbah guest house offers modern facilities in a traditional style, an outdoor pool and a delightful terrace overlooking the palmeraie.

"As I was born in Southern Morocco, I chose to settle in Zagora around 30 years ago. To celebrate the birth of my son Sofian, I built a Riad among the palm-trees next to the mountain. It was in this magical place that Sofian was lucky to begin toddling. Today, I am pleased to welcome you there." - Moulay Slimane (owner)
