Berber Lodge is a charming getaway hidden amid ancient olive trees on the outskirts of the village of Oumnass, 40 minutes south of Marrakech. Owned by acclaimed interior designer Romain Michel Meniere, the property was inspired by Berber architecture; the walls of each of the 9 dwellings were built using the garden's earth. The central house has a large sitting room with a roaring log fire, a dining room, library and bar. Serene and spacious, this rural hideaway is a place to de-stress.
Note: WiFi is only available in the reception area.
A daily-changing set menu of fresh and seasonal produce (from the on-site vegetable garden where possible) is served, with a focus on Middle-Eastern and Moroccan flavours. Eat the tasty home-cooked meals in the dining room or alfresco.
Traditional techniques and materials including eucalyptus wood, wild bamboo and terracotta tiles were used to build the 9 standalone lodges, with locally-crafted rattan furniture, pottery and earthy shades decorating the interiors. The result is simple yet stylish.
This secluded hideaway is home to a swimming pool which can be found in the gardens between the olive trees. The large sitting room overlooks the surrounding groves and grounds; the ideal spot for curling up with a book or simply admiring the views.
Other options include heading out to explore the countryside on horseback, wandering into nearby Oumnass – less than 10 minutes away – and visiting donkey sanctuary Jarjeer Mules, or if you fancy a bit more action head into Marrakech.
