Whilst we didn't stay the night at the ecolodge (we were filming in the beautiful mountains nearby - but the accommodation looked excellent) we did eat a superb meal (one of the best we had in our 3 months working in Morocco in terms of flavours and simple, delicious ingredients) and used this location for shooting over 3 nights.
Not only is this place so beautiful - day and night (and you should see the stars at night!) - but the story of how the lodge came to be, and the aspirations for re-establishing the family village, are fascinating and provide a great sense of being somewhere very special.
Mohammed (who, handily, speaks great English!) and his family are lovely hosts and will no doubt make you feel very at home in the Fint Valley (my personal favourite place in the whole region).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ouednoujoum is the stars valley in in the Berber south of Morocco, in Tiguirt oasis, Fint valley, 15 km from Ouarzazate. Ouednoujoum fulfills the international standards of ecotourism: it is an écolodge which allows this place of our ground, as well as this Berber family, to remain in their beauty of origin ensuring the means for their protection against time and the voracious appetites of our companies. You will be lodged under a traditional Berber tent fitted out for your comfort: single or double bed, with bed base on feet, individual bathroom with washbasin, shower and European WC, traditional ordering furniture. Tents are made in wools of goats and dromedaries. On the camp, electricity is supplied by solar panels, and the water arises from a natural source we invited you in a responsible consumption. Ouednoujoum exists in partnership with the association of the vilage and redistributes part of its incomes to ensure an enduring funding for development. During your stay. ... more less
