We booked for 4 nights between a riad in the medina and travelling to Essaouira, staying the first night in one of the tents and three in a room.
The tent was for experience sake and was reasonably comfortable, though be warned, the toilet is a dry one! Moving to the room seemed like a luxury in comparison and pretty well was, aside from very poor air conditioning and sporadic hot water. The air con needed to be left on all day in order to get the room cool enough for us to sleep, which we didn't work out until the last night.
The pool was very nice, and the surroundings OK, although you do need a taxi to get anywhere. We ate at the farm a number of times, and were always pleased with our meals, however the real highs were the service (particularly from Anna), and the excursion with Mohammed and Abdul who gave us a wonderful day out in the mountains.
Would we return? Probably not, as there is so much to see in Morocco.. if we did, then just for one night
- 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
