Overview

Traditionally built with thick walls and exposed wooden beams, this farm is set around a cobbled courtyard. There are only 3 bedrooms in total, making it an ideal property to rent as a whole for families.

There’s a good sized plunge pool (unheated) and shady patio areas with lovely views over the rolling countryside. The gardens are colourful, enjoyable to walk through and deliciously practical; most of the food served is home grown from pomegranates and olives to freshly pressed argan oil and herbs to flavour the ubiquitous mint tea.

Whilst at Lalla Abouch you’ll be looked after by Ahmed (the guardian), his wife, Khadija and their daughter Hafida. Hafida speaks only a little English (or French) but rest assured that she, and the rest of her family, will give you a very warm welcome. Ahmed and his family don’t stay in the house at night, but you’ll be given a walkie-talkie if you need to get in touch after hours.

In terms of activities you can simply enjoy the pool and take it easy with a book, there are some interesting places to walk to and if you fancy heading out for the day you can book a local guide, picnic and Jilou (the farm’s donkey) if you have children who might need a ride along on the way. Other activities based at the farm include massages, yoga sessions and Berber bread baking. You can also get involved with the farm, from helping to pick olives to feeding the animals. For quiet times a portable dvd player and selection of dvds can be borrowed.

We recommend having a hire car if staying at Lalla Abouch, Essaouira is 25km away and some lovely fishing villages (Sidi M’Bark or Sidi Kaouki) are around a 20 minute drive.

Although the rustic design is all part of the charm you do need to be prepared for quite simple bathroom facilities, only one of the bedrooms is an en-suite and there is only one full bathroom with shower, toilet and a small sink.

Keep an eye on younger children as some of the features whilst stylish (such an open stairway to the mezzanine) could be dangerous for unsupervised little ones.

In the summer months the rural environment and traditional, open design of the house means that you may encounter a few insects, although all of the rooms have anti mosquito wall plugs and bed nets. The farm also has cats and dogs.

There is no wifi (although there is a computer that you can use if you need to access the internet) and weak mobile phone signal, so it’s perfect if your aim is to really get away from it all for a few days.

  • We had an amazing time thank you very much! The riads and hotels were outstanding and everything went as clockwork. We had really bad rainfall on the day we transferred to Marrakech but our driver didnt give up and we eventually found a passable road ( which I think was the last possible one to get us there!)

    Thank you so much!

    MissingMatthew A reviewing Morocco Coast, Souks & Mountains on 05 December 2014

  • We would very much like to give our feedback regarding our trip to Morocco because it was absolutely fantastic. From start to finish there was nothing to fault, Mustafa our guide in the mountains was great - discrete when necessary but delightfully eloquent and informed about a wide variety of subjects. The food in the mountains was superb ( though the toilet facilities in the gites d'etape left a lot to be desired!!) The guest house Dar Adrar was beautiful with amazing views. The riad in Marrakesh was lovely and such a welcome respite after the hectic souks.....and as for the surfing.....it was fab!!!! Mohammed our instructor was patient and so super cool....a real gem and great with our children.
    All in all it was wonderful and we were all sad to leave. We will definitely consider using Tourdust again and wont hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
