Hotel Le Sphinx & Restaurant Chez Madame Andrée, Mohammedia
within 30 minutes drive from Casa

In one word: WooHoo. What an amazing, mythic and nostalgic place ! It is actually almost too good to spread the word ... ;-)

Hotel le Sphinx in Mohammedia has an interesting and long history of being a famous mythic hotel at the beginning of the last century. During the protectorate it was frequently visited by French high society and famous guests like Edith Piaf, Simone de Beauvoir and Maria Callas. It was actually the famous hang-out of the singer Jacques Brel who got so inspired, and he even wrote a song about it 'Jeff', about the manager of that time 'Madame Andrée'.
This is nowadays the name of the fantastic restaurant with an excellent service. On the menu there are tapas dishes, excellent fresh fish (of course in a fishers' village) and also meat, pastas and risottos. We had a super fresh and light 'millefeuille of tomato and crab' as a starter and sublime oysters from Dakhla. As a main, we suggest you share one of their freshly caught fishes, for example the 'Loup Bar' served with a delicious fried garlic oil.
You can come here to spend the day or stay over in one of their luxury rooms or suites.

Situated just a few meters from the ocean in the peaceful windy little city of Mohammedia surrounded by the beautiful garden & pool of the hotel, you will defenitely calm down in this little, magical and nostalgic piece of heaven.

Le Palmeraie Country Club Bouskoura
within 30 minutes drive from Casa

WooHoo!! Le Palmeraie Country Club finally opened its doors to the public with an innovative concept aimed at the whole family. It is conveniently situated in Bouskoura, one of the greenest zones in Casablanca where you can feel the clean air while enjoying your favorite sport outdoors. There is an 18-hole golf course, a fitness center with different rooms for different types of workouts (all with a view of the golf course), a luxury spa, an Olympic swimming pool, a tennis court, a football field, a restaurant, a meeting center, a kid center and much more. Although the country club is only accessible through membership, the restaurant/brasserie/lounge 'Le Resto' is open to the public. We had the chance to eat there and discover the menu prepared by the talented chef Benjamin Brau-Nogue, everything was delicious and beautifully presented, from the appetizers to the refined desserts. The decor is cozy and the view on the golf makes it even a bit romantic. If you had enough of the noisy city, drive 20 minutes and check out this amazing new club with many amenities in the nature by yourself.
