Fodor's Review

Few places stick in the heart as does this loveable hunter's lodge; with its club-like atmosphere and mismatched oddities, it is a blend of ramshackle and historic. Animal lovers may want to steer clear: there are animal horns and heads decking the halls. Staff delight in recounting the colorful history of the lodge (it was established in 1945, with French Foreign Legionnaires billeted there while they were building the bridge over the Ouirgane river). Despite the simple

rooms, the partly shabby lounges (with comfortable club chairs), and the often leaf-covered pool, guests flock here, both from overseas and from cities such as Marrakesh, Rabat, and Casablanca. The name comes from the hunters who favor the area for the shooting (sanglier means wild boar). Dining here is also a highlight. The "Smoking Boar" graces the wall above the bar, and the meaty menu is fit for a king (try the Tagine Berbère 1001 épices); main courses cost about 120 DH.
