Me, my wife and our friends have stayed in this villa for a night and it was really very nice, relaxing, and a great welcome from the owner Bruno and his friendly staff. We have enjoyed every single minute of our stay and we wished if we stayed for longer. We definitely going back there.

My husband and I stayed here and had the nicest time. The villa is absolutely stunning with beautiful rooms. We stayed in a room on the second floor with a gorgeous view to watch the sunset. The staff and Bruno were so nice and accommodating we didn't want to leave. I highly recommend staying here.

We are a family of 4 with an 11 and 13 year old. We chose this Villa as it has the best rating on trip advisor, and we were not disappointed. After a 10 day active holiday in the Atlas Mountains we came here to relax and have some fun. The superior rooms were super, nice balconies and open fires....

What an amazing stay we had at Villa Ganatouki. We have travelled all over the world, and it's not often that it feels hard to leave a place.
