  • Description


    We are a family of four (plus five peacocks, five cats, a Labrador and some tadpoles) living on an olive grove in Marrakech. We need assistance in running our guest house, along side our managers. Our work is wide ranging and flexible, depending on your skills and client needs.

    Examples of things you could get involved in includes graphic design, help managing our onsite shops, creating and sharing your favorite recipes, garden work, greeting and caring for our clients, helping streamline our operating systems as well as general guesthouse chores, such as room checks. Duties are ever changing and no day is ever the same, so we need someone who is happy to get stuck in.

    We also run a girls empowerment NGO in our village working with girls between 6 and 14 which you could volunteer at a few hours a week if interested.

    The guest house is located in Douar Laadem, a 20 minute drive from the centre of Marrakech, with regular affordable buses and taxis running between. We speak a mix of english, french and moroccan arabic!

    Minimum stay of 6 weeks. Longer stays welcome!
