After three hectic days in the Medina we were picked up by Faoud the manager and instantly he made you feel at ease and welcome. On arrival at Jereca Farm we were greeted by Humphrey and Bogart the baby camels before we were shown to our room. Our room was amazing, very tastefully decorated, cool and tranquil.
After a fabulous lunch cooked by Attika (she should have at least 2 Micheline Stars) we chilled around the pool.
On the second day after a healthy breakfast Faoud took us up to Mount Toubkal (a trip not to be missed) It took about six hours in total and that only scratched the surface.
Back at the farm another great meal served by Ali, probably the worlds best waiter. My wife Lorraine stole some oranges from the trees which were heavenly.
Day three was a day which was spent around the pool and the farm. When you explore the farm you find original sculptures done by Kate's husband Jimmy, secret gardens with an amazing array of flowers and a vegetable garden full of organic produce.
Having stayed in places all over the world we found that the staff at the farm were up there with the best.
If you are looking for a getaway look no further than Jereca Farm.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to our secret garden! Nestled at the foot of the Atlas mountains, close enough to visit to the souks yet light years away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. A charming working Berber farm with a modern twist. Delicious seasonal food. Generous rooms with four posters. Unique artwork. Ipod docks and home cinema. With only 4 rooms it is an intimate country home. A kiss for you from Humphrey and Bogart our pet camels! ... more less
