  • This small saffron farm truly is a paradise, a relaxing and restorative break from the hustle of the cities, a destination worth the trip (45 minutes from Marrakech) for its beauty alone. Everything....  more »
  • Visited as part of a food tour in and around Marrakech and this was interesting and different. An enthusiastic introduction by Christine although we were a bit late for the main harvest.  more »
  • Excellent place to stop on a trip to the Atlas Mountains. Beautiful gardens and a restaurant with excellent food. Christine, the Swiss owner has done a fabulous job with this place, and has something of an inspirational story to share. Her contribution to the local community and economy is a standard any expat should aspire to! Highly recommended. Make the time for lunch!
  • Nice place, very hospitable host from Switzerland. Recommended!
