Guestbook: here are their testimonials

This page publishes the photos and opinions of our guests who wish to testify to their visit to the Jardin aux Etoiles. We will gladly reproduce yours! We like our guests to talk about their stay, while respecting the discretion that some of them would prefer.
 
 

 

This page is an opportunity for our guests to point out the improvements that can be made to the riad and its surroundings, remarks that we solicit in our word of "Welcome", left at the entrance of the riad, in the Souss gallery. These remarks are followed by effects.

 

We are careful to perfect the comfort and redo the work that some local craftsmen have unfortunately done poorly. We have, among other things, reviewed the electrical connection which makes it possible to illuminate inside the pool at night... And it works! 


Amount of upgrades

 

We have also added curtains in the bedrooms Agadir and Taroudant of the 2nd floor, as well as in the Marrakesh suite. A red sofa complemented the pouffes in front of the Atlas Lounge. We made it happen in Kasbat Souss royal blue cushions to improve the comfort of the sofa and armchairs of the Souss gallery, as well as the original double seat that we appreciate at the edge of the swimming pool

 

We have also closed the triple openings of Tiznit bathroom and of the Marrakesh suite. We completed the equipment of the kitchen by a microwave oven. A sophisticated device now eliminates limestone from the water contained in our water tower. 

 

At the entrance ofgarden, we have also made our cactus square a jewel for the eye and for nature. Another square, this one of sand, was made a little further. We installed a ping-pong table there.

Inthe Souss gallery, on  can (and we must) now put away every evening mattresses and cushions of all kinds in a very large Berber chest, surmounted by a mask (just as Berber) in stone finally carved.

 

Ask our staff

 

We recommend contacting our staff in the event of small problems: flies (we have a product to keep them away), mosquitoes (two mosquito nets available, as well as mosquito repellent electrical outlets, to be replenished before departure). 

 

We are happy with the compliments we receive. Le Jardin aux Etoiles offers its customers very significant advantages, which one will not frequently find in a rental house.

Davin Th, son épouse et ses deux enfants en bas âge, Schleswig-Holstein (Allemagne), janvier 2024

En français et en allemand - Ma famille (2 adultes, 2 enfants en bas âge) a été ravie de son séjour. Propriétaire chaleureux (Jean Luc), comme le personnel (Ayoub, Fatima) et les animaux (chiens, tortues).

 

Le bâtiment, le terrain et le jardin sont aménagés avec beaucoup de dévouement et constituent une oasis à l'écart de l'agitation qui, à 10 minutes, avec le souk d'Oulad Teima, constitue une diversion réussie. Les arbres fruitiers ont pu être allégés de leurs fruits. Assez de possibilités de s'asseoir à l'ombre et possibilité de se rafraîchir dans la grande piscine (non chauffée).

 

Recommandations utiles pour les excursions/curiosités à proximité ou plus lointaines. Selon les préférences, il est possible de se retrouver ensemble ou de se reposer seul. Nous avons eu un peu trop froid dans les locaux (janvier), mais pendant les mois plus chauds, c'est certainement très agréable et c'est un grand plus de l'hébergement. De plus, des radiateurs sont à disposition, ce qui nous a permis de réchauffer au moins la zone de couchage pour les nuits fraîches.
 

Possibilité de réserver en option des repas délicieux et copieux, ce qui a un prix.
 

Merci beaucoup et au revoir, nous l'espérons. Une recommandation claire de notre part, même pour plus de 4 personnes.

Meine Familie (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kleinkinder) war begeistert vom Aufenthalt. Herzlicher Eigentümer (Jean Luc) ebenso wie Personal (Ayoub, Fatima) und Tiere (Hunde, Schildkröten).

 

Gebäude, Grundstück und Garten sind mit viel Hingabe eingerichtet und bilden eine Oase abseits vom Trubel, welcher innerhalb von 10 Minuten mit dem Souk in Oulad Teima als gelungene Abwechslung bereitsteht. Obstbäume durften um Früchte erleichtert werden. Ausreichend Sitzmöglichkeiten im Schatten und Abkühlung im (nicht beheizten) großen Pool möglich.

 

Hilfreiche Empfehlungen für naheliegende und auch entferntere Ausflüge/Sehenswürdigkeiten. Je nach Vorliebe geselliges Miteinander oder Ruhe für sich möglich. In den Räumlichkeiten war es uns etwas zu kalt (Januar), aber in wärmeren Monaten ist dies sicher sehr angenehm und ein großes Plus der Unterkunft. Zudem stehen Heizkörper bereit, mit dem wir uns zumindest den Schlafbereich für die kühle Nacht erwärmen konnten.


Optional köstliches und reichliches Essen hinzubuchbar, was seinen Preis hat.


Vielen Dank und hoffentlich auf Wiedersehen. Klare Empfehlung unsererseits, auch für mehr als 4 Personen.

Each element of the riad has its meaning -"The place is the epitome of tranquility. And designed with such passion, literally every element has meaning. It is wonderful. And we could not have been any better cared for.

 

From meeting Jean Luc on arrival to being cooked for by the expert Fatima, a beautiful soul. And then of course Ayoub, who went above and beyond in every thinkable way to ensure our holiday was bliss. Stay here!"

Cendrine M. and her two friends, Morges (Switzerland), May 2023

 

Wonderful-"Me, my wife and our two children have just spent a wonderful Easter holiday at Le Jardin Aux Etoiles.

 

This large cozy riad is very well located (we visited Agadir and Taroudant). We had good contact with the owner and the staff was very friendly. Ayoub was always available in case we had any questions and Fatima prepared delicious Moroccan dishes for us every day (for a very good price).

 

Our children immediately became best friends with Sasha and Saga (two adorable little dogs living in the garden) and we all had a great time discovering the neighborhood (Ayoub showed us around Agadir and Fatima in Taroudant) and enjoying the riad, its very lush and colorful swimming pool and garden, the stars at night, Fatima's food, the good weather and the kindness of the Moroccan people.

 

Thank you for the wonderful stay!"

Kurz und gut - "Great riad! Excellent."

 

Listening - "The riad, very well designed and super comfortable, is surrounded by an exceptional garden. The latter offers a great diversity of plants and colors and also benefits from a large swimming pool. The happiness of being woken up every morning by the song of birds and the scent of flowers."

I do not understand people who complain and often leave the place in a deplorable state when they leave it. Many thanks to Ayoub".

Regarding his team, Ayoub is a very friendly and attentive person, he contacted us a lot of times, to find out if everything was going well, if we needed him. He maintains the villa masterfully, and his kindness will be the first factor in making you feel at ease in this little corner of paradise."

The rooms are pretty with beautiful private bathrooms.

The plus: have breakfast by the pool with organic orange juice from the Jardin aux Etoiles, then share a meal with friends and taste a delicious fish with cream, prepared by Fatima.

Thank you Jean-Luc for your welcome. I had a pleasant stay. I highly recommend Le Jardin aux Etoiles."

We hope to come back! Thanks!"

In the footsteps of the Little Prince -  "As a teenager, I had discovered The Little Prince at the same time as, on the map of Africa, St.Exupéry's Night Flight, its stopover in Cap Juby, Morocco, and the stars of the immense Moroccan sky. with great comfort, equipped with respect for Moroccan genius, and opening onto a large swimming pool and a neat estate.The star of Saint-Exupéry, I found it at the Jardin aux Etoiles, at Jean-Luc's, in Agadir.

Due to lack of time, we did not visit Morocco, nor southern Morocco in their entirety, but we collected various experiences of Moroccan lives.

 

First in Agadir, the city of the 1960 earthquake, which I remembered well. The visit to its kasbah, on the damaged hill, allowed me to measure the caution of the Moroccan authorities, who prohibit any construction in the threatened area. We live with risk in Agadir. If there is a strong memory in Agadir, it was, a few hundred  meters from the riad, the artisanal bakery, managed from generation to generation since the dawn of time, with its instruments carried out with sure gestures transmitted from time immemorial. Time seemed to have stood still in this very old artisan bakery, bathed in the blond flour and hubbub of the workshop.

The seven-kilometre horse-drawn carriage tour around the city of Taroudant was a strong Berber breath, as was the visit to the open-air tannery, with its violent smells of dried skins from dozens of animals, and astonishing the visit to a perfume company with global reach.

 

At Salam Palace, I  rediscovered the charm of films from the colonial era. A lost era for hundreds of French people who had to leave the Protectorate that they had nevertheless helped to build. And Dar Zitoune, with Mr. Marc and Mrs. Zézette, where time passes quietly and pleasantly, African style. Do you know that I met a former employee there? of the Swiss National Circus Knie ? It is from Taroudant  that dozens of Moroccan laborers set off each spring, knowing how to set up each night, in a fascinating way, in a few hours, the big circus tent. Mr. Boujema told me about Switzerland as a connoisseur that he was, having set up his circus there several times. Totally surprising encounter.

 

A three-hour crossing of the spectacular foothills of the Atlas, Marrakech is one of Morocco's flagship cities. Sumptuous imperial city, today the world capital of the planet's efforts for its environment. Enter the  superb Majorelle Garden under the arch of its bamboo alley is pure happiness. Nearby, the Yves Saint-Laurent Museum has just opened, with very modern writing, dedicated to the art of the couturier. French public almost totally, but living exhibition of the art of fashion on Moroccan soil. Still nearby, the Museum of Weaving and Carpets, also of high quality.

 

How pleasant the weather must have been on the terraces of the great Jama-el-Fna square, before the attack that we remember, in its luxurious hotels, also in the riad where we were staying, a surprising space of modernity in the heart of the medina, or in its restaurants with oriental charm such as the Dar-Zellij, with the bewitching welcome of the Thousand and One Nights and the quality cuisine.

 

You can only see well with the heart, said the Little Prince. Le Jardin aux Etoiles is the favorite of Jean-Luc Vautravers, architect in love and proud of his riad, talkative guide and connoisseur of Morocco, charming host of his Tschoumy friends. Memorable Moroccan stay. Thank you, Jean-Luc !"

Soulaimane and his family, Agadir (Morocco), September 2018

 

Quiet and peaceful  -  "That's perfect! 

 

A dream setting, tranquility, a calm and peaceful villa, a small haven of peace.

 

Sincerely thank you. We will gladly come back".

We leave around 10 am hoping to return as soon as possible.

 

Discretion and not overlooked is a strong point of your riad".

Modernity and tradition -"Great stay in this very beautiful villa which combines both modernity and tradition. The rooms are very warm.

We took advantage of a swimming pool large enough for everyone to enjoy and discovered a beautiful garden with beautiful encounters such as the two small dogs and turtles and magnificent kittens.

I won't hesitate to come back, especially since it's not far from the airport."

A real change of scenery -  "I wanted to thank you for the welcome in the villa and for the advice and help provided during our stay. You have done an exceptional job to build this villa to your taste while respecting the local culture. The villa is ideally located, a real change of scenery, a real break with the city and a soothing calm. The vegetation around the pool is really pleasant, the pool really allows you to swim and that's a real plus. I have nothing to say about this place, one of the best I've visited".

Like at home -  "Unforgettable holidays in the heart of the Souss region. 

 

We stayed in the riad with our two daughters aged 6 and 2 and they felt right at home. 

 

We particularly address our thanks to Moulay Hafid and Fatima, without whom our stay would not have had the same flavor.

 

We will definitely go back!”

We are just now on our way back from a visit in the cooperative argan at Hafid sister who welcomed  us and showed us and told us about the production. We also bought some of her wonderful products.

 

The Crocodile Park is really beautiful and interesting.

 

We all loved very much the pool Win-Timdouine and the underground lake. The door was open. We met so many people there and were invited to eat together with a moroccan family. Definitely a good suggestion!".

Tausend und einer Nacht - "Reisen,  neue Länder und Kulturen kennen lernen, gehört definitiv zu unserer Lieblingshobbys. Wir sind uns einig, dass diese 2 Wochen im "the star garden" für uns auserrgewöhnliche Ferien waren! "Tausend und einer Nacht".

Jeden Abend sassen wir vor dem Chéminee, hörten marokkanische Musik, lasen und genossen den feinen, marokkanischen Wein. Tags über machten wir Ausflüge in die Berge, am einsame Strände, in geheimnisvolle Oasenstädte oder schätzten den wunderschönen Garten mit dem Vogelgezwitscher und der Privatsphäre am sehr schönen (aber relativ kalten) Pool. Wundervoll war auch, dass wir täglich im Garten frische Manderinen, Orangen und Zitronen ernten durften.

Wir danken Jean-Luc, dass er uns jeder Zeit mit Rat und Tat unterstützt hat. 

Gerne würden wir nächstes Jahr wieder kommen".

Great week - "We spent a very active week both in the Jardin aux Etoiles, which we found really magnificent, and in the surroundings, which surprised us with their interest and diversity.

At the riad, we played memorable games of petanque in the new white sand surface devoted to games. The pool was really nice! We also really enjoyed Fatima's Moroccan cuisine. 

We spent a whole day in the craftsmen's village of Kasbat Souss, which we literally robbed, taking many authentic gifts and souvenirs. We felt an immense pleasure in discussing with the craftsmen, without ever being harpooned in an insistent way, as is too often the case in Marrakech".

Quantity of typical and attractive places -  "We loved the tranquility of this magnificent riad surrounded by a tastefully wooded garden. An ideal place to relax by the large swimming pool and enjoy an excellent tajine simmered by the Berber cook.

Despite a short stay, we were able to discover, nearby, a number of typical and attractive places, in particular  a counter with craftsmen who produce authentic high-quality items (Kasbat Souss) and the sumptuous palace of the late painter Claudio Bravo (near Taroudant).

The city of Taroudant, surrounded by its magnificent ramparts, is rightly called "little Marrakech". Not to be missed at the gates of the city, the superb riad of Dar Zitoune which houses a well-kept restaurant".

Wonderful week -"We have spent a wonderful week in this very spacious and beautiful riad with a lot of Marrocan details. Our daughter and her friend were very pleased with the swimming pool :-). 

 

The beds slept well and there were enough bedsheet and towels. The toilets and bathrooms were clean and in Moroccan style too. The housekeeper was very friendly and helpful. The garden was very big and we put a turtle over there. Three friendly little dogs watched over the place and they were Always very enthusiastic upon our return. 


Renting a car is a necessity. We could rent it through a contact of Jean-Luc, the owner. The nearest big supermarket is in Agadir and over half an hour drive away. Within a kilometer of the house is a little local shop were you can buy bread and other first necessities.

 

The sights were in our view a bit far away (almost an hour or more). We spent a day in Taroudant, Paradise Valley (really a must-do!) and a nightover in Marrakech (= a three hours drive away) and saw the waterfalls of Immouzer. We could not find the caves and basin of Win-Timdouine. Agadir was not 'our cup of tea', but if you like beaches and a more mondain city, we think you will like it.."

Families of Cédric Ch., Neuchâtel (Switzerland), and César G., Neuchâtel (Switzerland), April 2017

 

In and around the pool -"We had a wonderful stay at the Jardin Aux Etoiles and left delighted!

 

The whole family enjoyed it: the children had fun in and around the magnificent swimming pool and looked forward to picking oranges each morning, while the adults could enjoy having an aperitif in the sun by the pool and relaxing under the expert hands of the Berber masseuse. Everyone appreciated the convenience of the delicious dishes prepared by Roukaia.

 

In one week, we loved spending whole days there, as well as discovering the places suggested by the owner, who advised us wonderfully. A big thank you to him, we will come back with pleasure!”

Beautiful, private property - "We have had the most amazing time on our holiday.

 

Such a beautiful, private property to spend time in. It is fairly remote but, with the owners dogs guarding the

property you feel completely safe and at ease.

 

It's very spacious but warm and welcoming at the same time, with an open fire to use on a chilly evening. A generous amount of towels and bedding to use and a well equipped kitchen, complete with washing machine and dishwasher made our lives so much easier, especially with small children in tow.

 

The pool isn't heated so is fairly cold in the milder season but our children braved it a few times. The outside area (pool and garden) is outstanding. We found tortoises and lizards amongst other things and the oranges you can pick fresh from the trees are not to be missed.

 

It is appropriately named the 'garden of stars'. We have never witnessed a more spectacular night sky, cuddled up, with blankets on loungers was just wonder under the Brightest stars we had ever seen.

 

Its in an area that isn't full of sun worshiping tourists. You actually get to see a genuine part of Morocco which we have loved and has been an amazing experience for us and our children too. So many places close by to visit for adults and children.

 

We are already planning our next trip to do the things we didnt have time for.

 

Jean-Luc (the owner) couldn't have been anymore helpful with suggestions on places to visit, we would have missed out on some experiences if it wasn't for his help, letting us know the temperatures so we knew what to pack was so helpful too.

I can't see anyone being disappointed, we certainly weren't."

Precious memory  -"What a pleasure to discover in this autumn of 2016 this southern Moroccan which has become for us in a few hours a magical enchantment.

 

From the “Garden to the Stars” comfortable, vast, flowered to perfection, decorated with dozens of birds around the magnificent swimming pool, we criss-crossed this land of a thousand facets together.

 

Many thanks to you, Jean-Luc, for your dedication. By your knowledge of the Berber country and your generosity, you were a perfect guide.
 

From craft markets to souks, from the nature of animal parks to the Garden of Eden, everything lends itself to astonishment.

 

We keep a precious memory of this stay which made us want to know more about Morocco."

Highly recommended -  "Just like the pictures! Stunning Villa in VERY rural but beautiful location. Exactly what we wanted.

 

The owner was extremely helpful, organizing everything for us including car hire and a meal on arrival. The caretaker was also lovely, as was the wonderful cook who we highly recommend you book! She came back and cooked for our last night. 

 

40 minute drive to Agadir - which is well worth the trip. Some lovely restaurants etc, and the harbor is definitely worth a visit.

 

Highly recommended and should we come back to the area, would definitely book again".

Dream week -  "We spent a dream week in the riad le jardin aux étoiles. The garden is very well maintained (it doesn't feel like being in the tropics) with banana trees and palm trees and lots of other trees. The roses are magnificent, a clean swimming pool ideal for children and adults.

 

As for the cook Lala Arkia, charming and smiling with a rare kindness, she concocted delicious dishes for us, a real pleasure at each meal from breakfast to aperitif to lunch and dinner.

 

The house is even better than in the photos the rooms are pleasantly well laid out with two bedrooms on one side and another on the other ideal for the intimacy of couples if you are traveling with several people.

 

Very well decorated with these paintings, these books, these carpets. Several small terraces for each room I really liked.

 

As for the village itself, the inhabitants are sociable and very nice. We were able to take advantage of this beautiful house in this beautiful city where we feel very well that life is good.

 

In the evening a magnificent spectacle awaited us: a sky full of stars illuminated our evenings. I highly recommend everyone to have a time of their life in this house." 

Family of Rayna E. (Great Britain), July 2015

 

 

Thanks- "We have enjoyed our stay in Morocco and we have been well looked after. Many thanks. Mrs Roukia has been very pleasant and we enjoyed a very nice Tajine this evening.

 

The dogs are fantastic, proper little thieves just like our dogs at home. They are good fun to have around.

 

The children are enjoying themselves and are being sensible spending time indoors when they feel hot. Driving here is interesting!"

Magic - "A beautiful place and a warm welcome from the owners and their employees. I can only recommend this place.

 

The house is superb, its garden and its swimming pool encourage you to dream. Ideally located just a quarter of an hour from the airport. If you need to relax, this place is ideal. It's on, I'll come back to it."

Fabulous-"We have spent fabulous holidays. The architecture of the spacious house is very impressive, the garden with lot's of palms, orange, citrus and banana trees is a real paradise. We enjoyed swimming in the huge pool and relaxing in the peaceful place. Very cute was the young Jack Russel.

 

Additionally we played a lot of golf and found Agadir a very attractive golf destination. It was also very interesting to visit the historic city Taroudant together with our guide Hafid. Our steward Hafid spoiled us the whole week with healthy mint tea from the garden and fresh bread in the morning. He was very helpful and caring all the time.

 

Prior to the journey it was a great pleasure to communicate with Jean-Luc, who gave us a lot of helpful advises for great places to visit and restaurants nearby.

 

Thanks a lot for the wonderful holidays! "
