    Description

    Our guest farm welcomes retreats in a natural environment in the mountain region of the ourika Valley in Morocco. We mainly welcome yoga groups, but also flamenco, calligraphy, chanting and musical activities, etc.

    We have 2 hectares and since 1 year started our own organic farming (vegetable, olive oil, many fruit trees), and aromatic herbs such as mint and verbena. We are aiming to provide our guests with as much organic produce as possible.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers can assist in different retreats (Iyengar Yoga, Pilates, Calligraphy, Iokai Shiatsu, Flamenco, Coaching) organized in site.
    They will also learn about local cultures and customs in a berber village with deep arabic influences.
    The place is unique because it is offering a peaceful setting in a friendly and family atmosphere, all of our staff coming from the same village.

    The Workawayers will be part of our team preparing the land, planting and harvesting our natural produce.
    They can also help with cooking if they already have an experience in the field. Since we already have a team serving the food and drinks, in charge of doing the service, the Worawayers will not be taking care of this in particular.
