Property Information:

Set in the heart of the Berber country side only 600m from a pristine beach, L'Ane Vert is the place for an authentic Moroccan Holiday. We have recently opened and are now offering accomodation in tradtional Berber tents. Currently there are two Deluxe Berber tents with private bathrooms, one standard Berber tent with a private bathroom (great for groups on a budget!) and two 8 bed backpacker tents.

There is a tapas bar with a menu that changes daily offering a fusion of moroccan cusine based on seasonal fresh produce. Situated right on the beach you can expect the freshest of seafood caught by the local fishmen in the village.

Come and relax in the hammock under the Argan tree or take your morning coffee on our terrace with a breath-taking view over the ocean. Offering incredible sunsets over the Atlantic with camels, donkeys and goats wandering past you are sure to experience a true Moroccan holiday at L'ane Vert.

We offer surf board/wetsuit hire and are able to organise surf lessons with a local surf instructor. There are great surf spots along the Tafedna beach including reef and beach breaks suitable for beginners, pros and all those in between.

L'Ane Vert also has an artist residence program that brings people from all over the world to work with the community creating art projects. Come and check out our current programs and maybe get involved!

Whether you are looking to carve the perfect waves, get to know the locals, explore the Berber country side or simply pass the days basking up the Moroccan sunshine, L'Ane Vert has comfy beds and plenty of sweet Moroccan mint tea waiting for you.

    Thanks so much for my stay at L'Ane Vert. I enjoyed every minute of it trekking through sand dunes, duck diving and body surfing through waves, watching birds, trekking up river and finding fossils. Add to this the great company of staff, volunteers and other guests, the locally sourced super tasty food and the stunning sunsets viewed from the terrace you can understand why I can't wait to return and, Insh'Allah, will do very soon.
