Khanfous Retreat, a B&B during the summer months, is available to rent during the winter months.
This house is ideal for anyone looking to escape to the country for a few months (up to 6) and spend some time in a rural, tranquil environment.
The house was built in 2012, using traditional techniques and locally sourced materials.
It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open-plan kitchen-dining-living area. Outside there are gardens, where plants, fruit, herbs and vegetables will be grown.
The house benefits from stunning views of the ocean and the sunsets are spectacular.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, fridge, etc. However there is no oven.
The house has water (pumped from a well) and electricity.
You will have the house to yourself, apart from our guardian who will visit regularly to check on the house and gardens.
Other things to note
There is NO MOBILE PHONE COVERAGE in the village - to get a signal you have to walk about 1 km. There is also NO INTERNET nor fixed line phone.
I haven't used the house in the winter before, but there is a wood burner and the house is designed to retain the heat.
This house would suit and "outdoors" person who enjoys nature and doesn't mind getting muddy and being disconnected from the modern world.
We kindly ask our guests to be very respectful of the local environment and the villagers. Khanfous Retreat aims to operate in harmony with its local surroundings, enriching it where possible whilst avoiding any negative impact.
We recommend staying within the local area during your stay; wandering around the village, taking walks through the rolling countryside or trekking down to the beach. We would like to minimise the use of vehicles into and out of the village to avoid too much noise and air pollution. However, should you wish to make a trip back to Asilah for the day we can organise transport for you.
No smoking inside.
