A traditional farmhouse, renovated with love, located in the Haha hills, 20 minutes away from Essaouira and the ocean, among argan and olive trees. Easy access from the main road, by a short 150 mt dirt road.
A truly exclusive experience in the heart of Berber's land and their traditions.

The space

This old - stone builded - farmhouse has been respectfully renovated few years ago. It is located on a 2 hectars property, 28 Km south from Essaouira, in the heart of the Berber country, surrounded by argan and olive trees.
Working with families of the area, we cultivate and process our products (Argan fruits and olives) using local techniques.
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. Breathtaking sand beaches and the lovely beachside town of Essaouira are 20 minutes away.
Accompained excursions and a rural cooking experience are available on request, introducing guests to some of the most typical areas and authentic Berber dishes.
The farm offers 1 suite and 2 rooms , for a total of 6 -7 places, a lovely white courtyard and several spots where to chill out, a terrace with pergola and a small pool.
Breakfast and other meals can be arranged on demand.
Hot water, fireplaces, furnished kitchen, safecase and a tv with dvd player are available. Regular house cleaning and property keeping are included in the price. Transportation can be arranged with us, or we can suggest trusted drivers and good car rentals.

A small shop in the area offers first need items, as bread, mineral water, milk, vegetables, meat, soap; otherwise, other shops are available in Tidzi village (3 Km) where every Thursday is held the local souk too (weekly market).
Visit us and enjoy a healthy way of life that can only be found in rural Morocco.

Lucrezia was great with communication and organised everything for our stay. The house is wonderful, peaceful and charming and on request we had supper cooked for us one night. I would recommend highly.

Despite our late arrival on a stormy evening, there was Ahmed waiting to welcome us at the entrance to this enchanting property. Inside the warmest welcome from Lucrezia and Noelle. Wonderful, authentic farmhouse lovingly maintained, appropriately and stylishly decorated. We were so well looked-after that Noelle even took the time to bake me gluten and dairy free goodies for breakfast. The surrounding countryside is sublime, peace and tranquility abound and often the loudest sounds are those made by the animals. We did quite a bit of hiking around the area and it feels like you have been transported back in time. We highly recommend this home, it is great for couples or families. It is safe and we would have no qualms letting our six year old daughter run wild. Lucrezia is a gracious hostess who is impressively well-versed on the culture and history of Morocco, despite this being her adopted country, and it is apparent how much she loves it. We can see why.

For us this was the perfect Airbnb. A private pampered rural escape an the wilds of Morocco. Painstaking attention to detail from the owner, who has a house down the road and also runs an outstanding Riad in Marrakech, but so down to earth and friendly. We stayed for 5 nights and didn't want to leave in the end. Locally there is stuff to do, Essaouira is 30 mins away and the local berber markets are worth experiencing but the real treasures are the local wild beaches. We hope we'll be back soon and now we face the challenge of finding airbnb's elsewhere that are even remotely close to the standard of this place. We stayed with our 2 year old who had a great time running around and seeing the farm animals. Photos don't really do it justice.

The farm house is absolutely stunning. Jaw droppingingly beautiful in fact! But more importantly the support we had from both Louis (Lucrezia's friend who managed the property whilst she was away) and Hassan (the property's guardian) was above and beyond. I picked up an illness before arriving at the farm and both Louis and Hassan were incredibly helpful looking after me whilst I was unwell. Going as far as driving into the town at midnight with my boyfriend to find a 24 hour pharmacy for my medicine. When I had recovered and was able to enjoy the local area we had a great time exploring the beautiful beaches and authentic local markets - both Hassan and Louis provided great tips. Also, just chilling by the pool was fantastic, there is loads of space to sunbathe and eat outside. We had meals prepared for us one day and both the breakfast and dinner were delicious and there was a huge amount of food so worth the extra money. Thank you so much Lucrezia for letting us stay at your beautiful farm - I hope to be back one day!

A completely exquisite experience from start to finish. The farm is dreamlike in its tranquility, and we felt nourished and cared for from the moment we set foot over the door. Lucrezia is the perfect host, gentle and considerate and the quality of her care and attention is evident everywhere in the beauty of the house and garden. Nothing feels forced but everywhere is something for the eye and soul to feed on. Hafida's food was wonderful and she herself is so lovely. And Ahmed made us feel very safe. If you are considering this place I can only say GO!

Je suis italienne, installée au Maroc depuis 2001. Je tiens une maison d'hôtes à Marrakech. J'aime les traditions qui défendent une vie simple et les savoirs faire d'antan. J'aime aussi les animaux (la ferme en a quelques uns!) et la marche. Je pourrai vous conseiller sur les excursions et les randonnées différentes qui font le charme d'un séjour dans cette région. Je considère le Maroc un pays extraordinaire, très intéressant et riche que je n'arrête pas de découvrir.
