Welcome to a brand new year where new, fresh & exciting opportunities and experiences are just waiting to unfold.
The past 2 weeks have been filled with family & friends, food & festivities, drinks & delightful gifts. So much so that there seemed, to me, to be a festive fog that had settled. Whenever I ventured out, generally speaking, everybody seemed to be a little dazed as in: timed reactions were slower; eyes slightly glazed; spacial awareness stunted and mental aptitudes slightly lacking. No judgment, just observation.
When we become over stimulated, by whatever means, our bodies & minds have various ways with which to cope with this. Have you ever suffered a sugar hangover? :)
There comes a point when we realise that we need to give our body’s a well-deserved MOT and January tends to be the time to do this. Fresh starts, ambitious goals and best intentions are the talk on everyone’s lips. If you’re one to set New Year resolutions just remember to keep a balanced perspective; hold self-care at the heart of your intentions and forgive yourself when things don’t go according to plan.
Wishing you and your families an extraordinary 2019!
Love & Light
New Year, New You

Meters from the beach in the heart of the village the Auberge offers clean, simple but thoughtfully decorated and designed rooms at an amazing price. Set over four floors in the centre of Taghazout bay, with the ground floor housing Taghazout’s most popular restaurant, the L’Auberge is in the heart of the action.
In the chill out lounge the tea/coffee station offers you the chance to enjoy a cup of a hot beverage of your choice any time of the day. Daily fresh fruits delivery will allow you to refuel energy after surf or yoga. You can relax on the sofas, enjoy the swap book selection and the free wi-fi.
The Auberge is right on Taghazout beach. Perfectly poised to watch the fishing boats come in and soak up the laid-back village atmosphere, staying at the Auberge is a unique Moroccan experience. Shops, cafes, restaurants, surf shops and all Taghazout has to offer are right on your doorstep.
The rooftop terrace, sun-filled balconies and restaurant below come together to give the Auberge a real community feel. Kick back and enjoy the sunset from one of the beautiful terraces at the house. The first floor features a lounge area to relax with books and magazines.
The Location ~ Taghazout
Internationally renowned amongst travelers, surfers, and yogis for its laid back pace and world-class waves, Taghazout is a unique gem on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Located 40 min from Agadir international airport, it’s a short hop (only 2 to 3 hours) from most central European cities. It’s the closest place for any European surfer to get year round warm water, perfect waves, and a unique cultural experience.
The Yoga Space
We have two spaces to practice yoga. Both of them overlook the ocean with an amazing view of the sunset whilst enjoying the sound of the waves against the shore.
Hearty and healthy, our breakfasts include: fresh fruit, fruit juices, pancakes, freshly baked baguettes, eggs, yoghurts, cereals, cakes, omelettes, nuts, raisins, fresh coffee, tea, Moroccan delicacies and more. Served on the main terrace overlooking the surf it will keep you fuelled for a day at the beach or fill you up after a surf at dawn.
Packed lunch is taken on the beach comprising of homemade crispy baguettes, salad or pasta each accompanied with fresh fruit and sweet treats.
On the roof top overlooking Taghazout Bay you can expect to find a nightly offering of tapas and starters. Followed by meals ranging from Moroccan tagines, couscous and salads, to barbecues, vegetarian options, fresh fish and a delicious variety of international and Moroccan dishes to suit every palate
