Traditional Nomad House
My name is Hassan, i grew up in an oasis 12 km from Tagounite. I live in a traditional house (Kasbah) in a little nomad village in a gorgeous oasis. We have several bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, toilet and big garden.
We are happy to receive people to help us build this house. I will teach you house building, making bricks. Currently we are renovating the kitchen. We have 3 meals a day.
It's very calm here and remote and the village is mostly empty.
We also have WiFi (not free)
We work max 3 hours a day. 5 days a week.
We have goats, dogs, chickens and a cat.
We are full in June and July. You can stay till 10 June or come after 16 July.
