Fodor's Expert Review Jnane Tihihit

Douar Makhfamane, Lalla Takerkoust, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, 40000, Morocco

Not far from the lake, this paradisiacal farm and guesthouse hides out behind the dusty, unassuming village of Makhfamane. Rooms and suites are scattered through the grounds, which are a veritable explosion of fruit trees, vines, vegetable patches, and aromatics. Accommodations are in keeping with this nature theme: natural colors, fabrics, and materials combine to create supreme comfort without the sense of extravagance. The guesthouse's menu is created entirely from the farm’s pesticide-free bounty; the homemade fresh cheeses are unparalleled. Instead of a chlorine pool, owners Robert and Carole have created a kind of basin that is filled daily and then used to water the gardens at night. There is a host of animals kept on the farm too, including pigs, a rarity in these parts. There's also a boutique that sells the homemade cheeses, along with syrups, oils, and other local specialties.
