  • Description


    Hi there. We are lehcen and hassan. We are nomads who grew up in a beautiful oasis in a little nomad village in a big traditional nomad house 11 km from tagounite. We lived with our family all our lives here. Unfortunatly our family moved to tagounite because of the waterproblem. But we love it here so much. We want to live here. So we are looking for people who want to help us rebuild the house. We have 4 bedrooms and a living room, kitchen and there's enough space to relax. We have a bathroom with shower.
    Now we need help with making bricks, renovate living room and bedrooms, walk with our dromedares and goats and sheep so they can eat, carry sand for the bricks, feading our chickens, rabbits, goats and sheep, walk the dog.
    We cook traditional Berber food and all eat together 3 times a day.
    If you want we can teach you.
    We also have a nomad oven and often we make fresh bread.
    We have wifi.
    There is enough to do here like visiting tagounite, the market, desert, walking to the mountains, go to weddings, meet my family and friends.
    We work max 3 hours a day, max 5 days a week, usually after breakfast, after that you are free.

    You can get here with ctm or supratours busses from any big city.
    From marrakech every day a buss leaves at 11 and is in tagounite at 21.
    We pick you up in tagounite from the buss station and I bring you with my motor to our house in the oasis.
