Lalla means ‘Lady' and 'Abouch' is a lovely old Berber lady, who also named a wonderful argan tree just at the beginning of our property. The Argan tree is indigenous to Morocco and famous for its nutritional and cosmetic qualities. The argan fruit is harvested and pressed on-site.

This simply charming farm, with its renovated traditional stone house of mid XIX century, is located 30 km south of the coastal resort of Essaouira and is the perfect getaway for those who want to truly experience the traditions of Berber Moroccan rural life. The farm consists of: one duplex suite with double bed, private bathrooms; one double room, one twin room, a bathroom, a living room with sleeping couch, a courtyard, kitchen and dining room, a winter salon and terrace. Extra beds and baby cots are available and in winter you will also have heating and fireplaces in the bathroom. Towels and bed linen are provided.

A working farm, Lalla Abouch produces its own olive oil, argan oil, flours and cereals, vegetables, fruits, salads and herbs using knowledge and techniques from the local community. The house prepares wholesome breads and cous cous by hand from its own wheat and barley supply and the kitchen is the ideal place to learn the secrets of Moroccan cooking. A small, fresh water swimming pool -the water is from the well- is ideal for cooling off after a morning of lending a hand on the farm, or simply befriending the donkeys, goats or Lucrezia's two country pooches. The Lalla Abouch is ideal as a retreat on its own, or after a few days in Marrakech or Essaouira).

Please note: There is a minimum stay requirement of 3 nights for the periods of Easter, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Rates for these periods are also liable to change. Please ask on request for these periods.

Wir waren begeistert. Nicht nur das Haus ist ein Traum. Fatima hat uns kulinarisch verwöhnt, sie ist großartig! Wir wollten nicht mehr gehen u kommen hoffentlich wieder
Einfach traumhaft schön

Ich habe lange überlegt, ob ich das überhaupt schreiben kann, aber dass dieser bezaubernde Ort dem Massentourismus anheimfällt, ist ohnehin nicht zu befürchten. In Lalla Abouch ist einfach alles zauberhaft: die Gastgeberin, die Köchin, das übrige Personal, die Tiere, die Location, das Essen, die Natur... man ist beglückt von so viel Liebe zum Detail und einem Grad an Aufmerksamkeit bei gleichzeitiger Distanz, der einem die Rührung ins Herz treibt.
