Why we love it...

Private accomodation in a restored Berber house

The Place

A restored Berber house poised between two radically different landscapes, Dar Faracha sits on the edge of the Skoura Oasis and, to the north, looks towards the Atlas Mountains. It makes a great stopping post on the way to Ouarzazate, the village at the edge of the Sahara which is the main base for camel treks into the desert.
The house is small but refreshingly simple, with just three bedrooms, ‘rammed earth’ walls and towel racks constructed from fallen branches. Windows are small, but from the terrace doors and dining room skylight, plenty of light floods in. Decoration is understated, but carefully thought out: a simple round dining table in an otherwise bare room, occasional paintings, a bookcase in the sitting room. There are fireplaces in the sitting room and bedrooms.
You feel as if you’re in a private house and you are more or less left to your own devices. You can pick whatever is in season from the organic garden. However, there is a high level of service if you want it. A cook and cleaner can be booked for your stay and a small welcome hamper of food will be waiting for you when you first arrive.
