    Description

    We are a multinational couple, He is from Morocco(but has spent 17 years in the U.S.) and she is from Kentucky. We decided to leave the U.S. and live off the grid and we think you will like what we've done. We live about 43 kilometers outside of Marrakesh in a dirt home with solar power and are looking to build further on our piece of land. Come visit us and see the local village market, the olive press, and more! If you have ever wanted advice on how to escape the grind and live the good life in the country we look forward to meeting you and exchanging ideas.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have a beautiful view of the Atlas Mountains, local village markets, and are very close to Marrakesh (43 kilometers -11 dirham bus ride from our property(which is about 1 euro)). We can also advise you what to see in Marrakesh and also how things are priced locally so that you are less likely to get taken advantage of in the market. We look forward to your help, friendship, and a cultural exchange with you. We hope to hear from you soon!
