Country House 4 3 1
About Our Home
This is the house we acquired 3 years ago when we came back from living in the Netherlands for 20 years. It is our retirement place. The views into the mountains are breathtaking. You can stay with 4 people. We have an in-house maid who cleans and cooks for you. The house comes with a Jeep automobile. A car is required (or your own rental car) because there is no public transportation coming to our house. The distance to Marrakech is 20 km (about 25 minutes drive). Note: driving inside Marrakech (especially inside the Medina walls) can be a little overwhelming for those not used to it.
Special Considerations
We like you to bring your own bed linens. Other than that, everything is available for your use.

Hassan had his own import/export business in Netherlands for 20 years, before we moved back to Morrocco. We are now retired and like to travel more often by offering our unique house in Morocco.
