A different and exotic way of life, Berber style, worlds away from mass tourism: discover our Berber lodge in the Atlas Mountains and our Moroccan treks, bespoke and for those travelling under their own steam.

The living room

The living room is a long room with an earth and bamboo roof, as is the traditional norm, looking out on to the ground-level inner courtyard.

In line with Berber practice and customs, you take your shoes off and sit down on the floor on a large cushion or large comfortable mats around low tables. You can have your meals here in pure Berber fashion if you so wish, preferably using your hands rather than cutlery (though we do have cutlery if needed!)

It’s a friendly, convivial area with a red colour scheme and also used for spending long evenings chatting or playing games.

The room has reversible air-conditioning (hot/cold), invaluable in both summer and winter.
