Beautiful and relaxing location with mountain views and thoughtful touches. Not only was the building gorgeous and comfortable, but the food was amazing. It was local, fresh and served with love & I wish I were eating it right now! I would highly recommend this location for groups and anyone looking to relax or check out the national park.

Great location for beautiful hikes, great organisation and a very comfortable, clean and authentic place to disconnect and enjoy great food and superb views. We went as a hiking group and really enjoyed climbing 2 summits in the area.

Great relaxing stay at Fatima’s gite, great fun for the kids, spectacular hikes, and fantastic food. Fatima Made all this happen in a very efficient way, accommodating to four different families. The gite is clean and well decorated, has everything you need, and spectacular views. Would do again!

We visited Talassemtane with a group of friends. We had a great time in the Gite. Fatima and her staff were very welcoming and the food was delicious. The views from the house are spectacular. Great walks in the Talassemtane national park with our guide Najib.

This is an amazing option if you are looking for a rural experience right in the heart of the Rif Mountains. The Gite is located in a small village area with direct access to hiking trails. It is an amazing spot to wake up in the middle of nature. The rooms include all normal amenities, including lots of blankets and space heaters which was helpful as it was a cool misty weekend when we were there. Fatima helped explain one of the options for a hiking loop nearby that took us up and around a mountain. We completed this ourselves but guides are available for those interested. Everyone in the surrounding village was very friendly. As many others have mentioned, the food is amazing, authentic, and fresh. Fatima is very responsive and helpful, answering questions promptly before during and after our stay. Her sister Firdaws also was extremely kind and attentive. If you are looking for a getaway into some nature, and a peek of Berber village life, I highly recommend this stay!

Gîte Talassemtane is situated perfectly in the village of Zaouiya - overlooking the deep valley and a good days hike from the "blue city", Chefchaouen. Fatima arranged our stay at this Gîte as the 1st night of a 5 day trek up and over the Rif Mountains. The hike is beautiful and when you reach the Gîte, Fardos and her staff are ready and waiting with tea and treats! There are doubles, triples and some quadruple rooms - all perfectly clean and with lovely hot showers. The hospitality and service are impressive in this small village and the food was delicious - accommodating our few dietary needs - like a couple vegetarians and 11 teenagers! We couldn't recommend the accommodation more, whether just coming here for a night or 2, or moving on from here on one of Fatima's famous treks in the beautiful Rif mountains.

My wife and I went to pass the weekend in the gite. We did a different hike each day, with our friendly guide who showed us beautiful landscapes. Back at the gite, we feasted on delicious morrocan food. We slept well, tired of the day's walk to wake up with a fantastic breakfast before the next hike. I would highly recommend it to any nature and outdoor lover and to anyone seeking an uncanny yet magnificent experience near Chefchaouen.

For Tripadviser, I send you this copy; Fatima arranged a wonderful trek in the Talassemte mountains. I asked for a trek by e-mail and she send me a better option. Emin was my guide, he is very experienced and knows every path or way. During the trek he asked if I wanted to walk a bigger distance and he changed plans. Emin has a good heart, is hard working and tries to gives you the best holiday. If you look for a really beautifull trek in the mountains go to Fatima, she is very helpfull.
