The Auberge Chez Pierre is located just below the Dades Gorge, six hours from Marrakech on the road to the dunes of Merzouga. You can be sure of a warm welcome and a peaceful stay in this idyllic setting in the High Atlas..
The breathtaking beauty of the Dades Gorge, with its ochre and red landscapes, is not to be missed. The hotel is built in the traditional architecture of the area and with local materials. It nestles in the hillside amid terraced gardens shaded by fruit trees, and has its own swimming pool.
The hotel has several patios, a salon and bar where you can take your aperitif, check your emails, or have a game of cards. We are renowned for the cuisine in our restaurant, where we offer an innovative European-Moroccan fusion, based on local produce and flavours - a surprising change from the usual fare of tagine and couscous. We offer simple but delicious lunches, and in the evening, we offer guests a varied menu which changes every day.
From Chez Pierre, you can take delightful excursions, such as the Valley of the Roses or the Todhra Gorge. We can also arrange hiking, mountain biking and even donkey rides for children.

The landscapes of the High Atlas are truly stunning. Make the most of your stay at Chez Pierre by exploring them with the activities we offer, accompanied by an experienced guide.
Guided walks :
Sidi Boubkar Gorge and the Monkey's Fingers : a walk of 3 to 6 hours, depending on your level of fitness. It will take you along the banks of the Dades river, from the beautiful kasbahs of Ait Arbi village to the Sidi Boubkar Gorge, via the cliffs of Tamlalt and the famous rock formations known as the 'Monkey's Fingers'.
The Dry Valley : this is a canyon walk of about 6 hours which sets off at the foot of the Dades Gorge, climbing up through a series of spectacular canyons to high plateaus, where you can admire superb views of the valley.
These are just two examples of the beautiful walks you can from Chez Pierre. We can also arrange treks with nomads, staying overnight with a nomad family; mountain biking; and even a donkey for the children to ride! Just let us know what sort of activities you would like, and we will do our best to arrange them.
Day trips off-road in a 4x4
Valley of the Roses: A full day out in the M'goun Massif of the High Atlas. If you take only one excursion, make it this one! From the Dades Valley, you can travel off road to the beautiful Valley of the Roses, with its unspoiled Berber villages and magnificent traditional kasbahs. You can stop on the way to meet a nomad family, have tea with them, and learn about their way of life. Different options allow you to walk or take a mule ride along the river, through gorges and picturesque villages which can't be reached by car.
Circuit of the Dades and Todhra Gorges : Another full day out in the High Atlas. You will set off up the beautiful gorge and canyons of the Dades Valley to the market town of M'semrir, and carry on up to to spectacular plateaus at 2800m altitude. Then you descend towards the Todhra Gorge and its extensive palm oasis. If you would like to stretch your legs, after 4 or 5 hours in the 4x4, you can stroll in the shady palm groves that lead down towards the town of Tineghir.
These are just two examples of the lovely day trips we offer. Feel free to ask us about other options when you are here.
