The Experience

My name is Khalid, I'm 35 and I live in Tagounite (65km from Zagora) with my family in a farmhouse that belonged to my father. Life is everywhere here, gardens, growing vegetables, date palms and olive trees as well tamaris.I am open to the concept of permaculture and organic farming. We never use chemicals here. Want to share the good ideas and put it all in place. If you feel motivated you to help me here do not hesitate to write me.

My stay with Khalid has helped me become a better person! As cliché as it is he and his family taught me that sharing is truly caring. Without a doubt I felt welcomed and literally became part of the Amazigh(berber) tribe! Khalid and his cousins oasis in the desert is remote , quiet and gorgeous! You will definitely not regret coming. Contact me for more questions and details about the farm!

My stay with Khalid, his wife, and their 3 beautiful kids (9,6,1) was short but memorable. I had to leave a few days earlier because of work commitments that required strong wi-fi. My tasks involved helping Madam with household chores, such as picking up wood for the fire, and cleaning. I also walked the kids to school. The Zhaid the farm was deactivated so I suggest clarifying the activities beforehand. It was an immersion into Amazihr culture like no other. My daily contact was primarily with the family as Khalid was away for most of the day. the village is a 15 min-walk away.

The family is super lovely and the kids are super well behaved. The work was good and we took breaks when needed! the farm and dessert camp was beautiful and we felt taken of. The meals were fantastic! The only negative is that we felt slightly uncomfortable a few times during the stay. The host was drinking at the dessert camp with friends and on the ride back to the house we felt our personal space was being invaded. He also got a bit aggravated when paying for a taxi even tho we paid our share, we ended up paying more to cover others due to pressure from him. Still an awesome experience!
