Dar Tafouyte is located in Takoujte village, aside Erg Chebbi dunes, just 1km away from Merzouga, the most well known
Moroccan village in the Sahara region.
Takoujte is a small village built up by nomad families long time ago. The word itself means â€œlittle hillâ€ and tells the legend that an old lady once lived here and was much appreciated by her generosity helping all Berbers in the region. Dar Tafouyte means â€œHouse of the Sunâ€.
