After 3 days in Marrakech,we( 2 youngish....couples) headed for the well recommended "la ferme berbere" (berbere spa) by taxi (cost under £ 14.00 for 4 people ) sent for us by the riad Tibibt where we d stayed.
We booked the 2 suites ,next to the spa as we wanted a quiet place in nature!
They both have their own little outside patio in a little private olive grove.
The purple room is the most tucked away,with it s own fountain but the orange one is slightly bigger ,bigger patio area,and nearer the handfull of animals(kept well ,so no smells or noise-)
The rooms are very clean,rustic but cosy and nicely decorated.We had complimentary home made biscuits, and traditional soap and body scrub in the bathroom.We loved it! We chose to have breakfast and evening drinks in the main living room ,next to a warming fire place (The nights ,early mornings are still a bit fresh in early march),but enjoyed a very tasty lunch around the pool,in the sun.
There is also a roof garden ,for more private" sun worshipping",with stunning view over the countryside.
The meals are set,but they accomodate for you if asked..In any case the cook has a very good reputation,mentionned in travel guides,and the meals are truly delicious and generous.(they bake their own bread in the outside oven ,in front of you!)
We also had a few traditional spa treatments,full hamman and massages....BLISS..........
The all place was quiet. A few families were there but it seems that everyone is like minded: relax in natural setting,but plenty to do and enjoy if it s what you want!(cooking classes,excursions,donkey rides, crafts etc...)
There is a reading room as well,well supplied with all sort of books(most in French,of course!)
We went for a little morning stroll outside, it felt very safe , the view on the Atlas mountains is breath taking!
The staffs are lovely ,discreet yet attentive..
We had a magical time there,and feel very lucky to have found this little gem!
Good value for money too!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "La Ferme Berbere" is an ancient farm renovated a few years ago respecting Moroccan tradition and craftsmanship. Built of natural and living materials such as earth, wood, straw, this old building tells you its story. Its walls, if they do not always respect the rigor of Western architecture, give it undeniable charm and character. We are far enough from the hustle & bustle of the city and still just on the outskirts of Marrakech. We are only a quarter of an hour away from the city centre and yet we are in the countryside. We have twelve bedrooms ideal for singles, couples, families & friends. We offer a choice of single, double, triple or family rooms either in the patio or in more secluded locations within the garden. ... more less
