MEALS & ACCOMMODATION
The Moroccan ranch is ideally situated just ten minutes from the sea. It is a calm and peaceful place, where you can take advantage of your free time to relax, read in the shade of the flowering trees or on the sunny terrace.
You will stay at the guesthouse in the ranch. The rooms have a simple and colourful, Moroccan-style décor. Each room has its own bathroom and either a double or twin beds.
Meals are prepared by the chef of the team who will take great pride in introducing you to the excellent, fresh and varied local cuisine. With each meal you will drink the traditional Moroccan mint tea – a real institution here! Hearty breakfasts. Meals are eaten together with the whole team in a large dining room at the ranch or on the large terraces overlooking the sea.
Due to its close proximity to the sea, this region benefits from a sunny and pleasant climate all year round. The few days of rain are spread between November and March. There are more than 340 days of sunshine a year, but fog and morning mist in summer are not unheard of. Temperatures are strongly affected by the trade winds that are present all year round, and remain relatively constant between winter and summer. The average temperatures are between 14°C – 16°C in January and 19°C – 22°C in July. The region does however experience desert winds from the Sahara (“chergui”) which can exceptionally, for a duration of a couple of days (2-5) raise the temperature above 40°C.
