Our home

Our small farm is located 30 Km south of Essaouira, on the coast, in a lovely authentic and secluded countryside, among hills and argan trees.
Working with families of the area, we cultivate and process our products using local materials and traditional techniques. We also raise few animals as goats, rabbits, ducks, chickens.

The house is a traditional stone house on a 2 ha of land, comfortable and very quiet, with a nice terrace and pool, garden all around. There are 2 dbl rooms, one with ensuite bathroom, the other with external bathroom in the courtyard. A third room can be arranged as a bedroom in case of need.

A 3 persons staff is present on the farm land during the day, but they are very respectful of privacy. There is a guardian in the night.
Daily house keeping and breakfast are included in exchange offer and assured by our maid. Extra cleaning and laundry can be arranged directly with the staff. Meals can be arranged on demand, or people is free to manage this by their own.
A car will be necessary. We can arrange car for guests, or we can put guests in contact with a car driver.
For those who appreciate culinary, staff will be happy to introduce them to some of the most typical and authentic Berber dishes. Most of the products, by the way, are from the farm and all is organic.
As an alternative to some part of the stay (or even for the full stay) I also have a riad in Marrakech - a traditional small palace in the Medina - very well located and with a devoted staff of 5, including a chef.

Property features

Who we are

  1. I am an Italian lady, 43 years old, I live in Morocco since 10 years. I personally manage the 2 properties, both are second homes so a contemporary swap is not necessary.
    I will basically travel with a friend, exceptionally in a small group of no more thank 4 persons (but this can be discussed case to case).
    Locations management is my job, so I have a professional eye and skills on it. I care very much my houses and people and I tribute the same respect to other's spaces, objects and staff. Living for the half of my time in a quite rural countryside, I am also used to energy and water saving, animals and pets and isolated areas. I speak Italian, French, English, Spanish. Staff speaks French, Arabic, Berber and some English.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

During their stay, guests can enjoy PRIVACY, a TRANQUIL setting, traditional RUSTIC meals and also easy WALKING TREKS
through the surrounding area, DONKEY trails and other farm activities, if they wish.
Breathtaking SAND BEACHES and the lovely beachside town of ESSAOUIRA are close by. It is the ideal spot for retreat, artistic work, concentration, natural discoveries. The Berbers living the area are modest and gentle people. A proper behavior toward their simple habits will be very much appreciated.
