Old farmhouse nested in Essaouira region, among argan trees

About the property

Original farmhouse, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, pool, terrace, garden, animals

An authentic, stone builded, farmhouse located on a 2 hectars property, 28 Km south from Essaouira, in the heart of the Haha hills. Recently renovated and refurbished respecting the traditional building and materials, intimate, colorful, with a lovely terrace facing the 6 x 4 mt bassin, this property offers a unique setting.

Working with families of the area, we process our own argan oil using the traditional techniques. Visit us and enjoy a healthy way of life that can only be found in rural Morocco.

During their stay, guests can enjoy privacy, a tranquil setting, traditional rustic meals, nice walks and treks, also in company of our donkeys. Special excursions and introduction to Berber traditions (cooking, beauty, argan making) are also available.

Breathtaking sand beachs and the lovely beachside town of Essaouira are close by.

About Lucrezia

I'm Italian, living in Morocco since 2001. Beside the farm I own and run a small guest house in Marrakech. Year after year I slowly slippered into Berber's fascinating world and heritage. I believe in the importance of a sustainable, calm and natural way of living.

Lucrezia purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Lucrezia chose Essaouira

Building in stone, is the original heritage of this area and sadly is disappearing, replaced by concrete. The land is poor and because this is still quit traditional. The people has not many opportunities to keep living in the village with a profit, so the goal was to put in value and sustain traditional work in the area. Proximity with Essaouira is ideal, though the area is still preserved from pollution, ungracious building, massive tourism, and keeps intimacy and privacy.

What makes this farmhouse unique

A quite unusual dip into the hearth of Berber country and its typical setting.

Amazing Moroccan Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at the house near Essaouira. What a paradise of beauty, tranquilty, charm, and style. We enjoyed all the animals around (many cats, some dogs, a donkey, a horse, peacocks, even turtles!!) The whole house and gardens have so much style and impecable taste. The region was our favorite on our Moroccan trip. Essaouira is such a lovely town. One tip: save your shopping for Essaouira instead of Marrakech. We found better prices and less hassle in Essaouira which has a lovely medina/old town. It was nice to have a few meals served at the house. My only reservation was the lodging and meal costs for children. I felt they were a bit high. We were two weeks in Morocco and the memory of this house stands at the top of the list. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Thank you Lucrezia, Louis, and Fatima for your hospitality. Best--The Poida family from Portland, Oregon, USA.

trip into the roots of berber history

  • 5 of 5

Being far away from consumerism and excessive availability and supported with the knowledge of Lucrezia and her excellent library we could feel, see and experience a bit of Berber culture. The silence, the emptiness of the near beaches, the missing of the clutter of our society was for us a rare luxury we will definitve come back for.

Endroit charmant, calme, bien situé, service impeccable, un excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Cette ancienne ferme a été rénovée avec goût, dans un environnement sans nuisance. Plusieurs espaces à disposition, extérieurs et intérieurs : la cour fermée, la terrasse bien équipée avec du mobilier extérieur (parasols, chaises longues, on a apprécié les lits sur la terrasse ombragée !), le jardin, la piscine, le hammam. La cuisine est bien équipée, le salon est charmant, les chambres sont tempérées et équipées de ventilateur, avec une bonne literie.

Fatima, très discrète, nous a préparé d'excellents tagines et petits-déjeuners, et le gardien nous a fait visiter ses cultures attenantes et nous a montré le grand arganier.

Aucune nuisance, ferme très bien située, excellent séjour !

PS : Sur la 2208, après 2km, tourner dans le chemin à droite après l'école colorée, puis tout de suite à droite.
