Fatima was an extremely helpful host especially since one person in our party was quite ill and bedridden for the beginning of our stay. The home is located in a very tranquil and green environment surrounded by the Rif Mountains. The meals were great especially with the views and serenity. We didn't read the description of the well so were unaware we were not close to Chefchoeuen, but we enjoyed beginning our orientation to Morocco in Fatima's retreat. We all thank you Fatima for all the help you gave us and hopefully will be back next time ready to take up the amazing hiking excursions you manage.
We drove a very long way to stay up in the hills of the Rif and the Gite Talassemtane was a great destination - tucked right up in the valley with walking accessible from the doorstep. It's a nice spacious place in a wonderful setting. Fatima and her sister do a fantastic job looking after their guests.
The Gite is very clean with gorgeous views. The hike was really beautiful and they have options for all different lengths of stay. Fatima helped us with getting a bus when there didn't seem to be any, and the logistics of the stay were well taken care of. She did not stay over night with us, so we missed out on the family experience and most of the ecotourism information we expected, but the guide was as helpful and friendly as he could be for doing both jobs at once.
Book through the Gite's website, not air bnb: it was very confusing to book through air bnb because the air bnb price wdid not reflect what we actually ended up paying (didn't double for two people, didn't include mandatory transport and hike to gite) but if you get your info from the website you'll have a better idea of what you're getting into.
I could see this being a great stay especially if you're into the agricultural specialties of the region.
