Experience real Moroccan life with my family at the Berber Cultural Center, a social enterprise I set up in 2005 to share my culture and help the local community. We have 14 bedrooms and several beautiful communal areas. A homestay with us includes joining us in our daily activities, such as cooking, taking our sweet donkey to the well, local cultural events and breakfast at the weekly market. You can relax in our steam room and during the summer you can use our small open-air swimming pool.
We have 14 bedrooms and eight shared bathrooms. We have only listed three of our bedrooms on AirBnB, so if we appear fully booked just send us a message and we should be able to accommodate you.
The Berber Cultural Center is designed to showcase traditional Berber life. The private areas are simple yet functional because the focus of Berber life is the family. Our shared areas are the most luxurious and richly decorated, and this is where you’ll spend most of your time.

You will have access to all areas of the main house and out buildings. The only area we like to remain private are my family's bedrooms.

We offer a homestay experience, and there are usually some family members at home most hours of the day. Our place is big enough for you to find some quiet time if you'd like to relax on your own.
The first day of a homestay usually includes a cooking class, with my aunt Fatima showing you how to make traditional Moroccan flat bread and my wife Fayza showing you how to cook a tagine.
We are 4.5 kms from the town of Imintanoute, which has limited dining and shopping options. We provide all meals during your stay, as well as drinking water and one activity a day. This is all included in the per-person price.
There is a small shop a few doors down, which sells drinks, snacks and essentials such as nappies/diapers.
We don't have wifi at the Berber Cultural Center, and the phone signal is quite patchy. If you think you'll need wifi during your stay, let us know and we'll organise a lift to the cafe in Imintanoute with the fastest wifi (which isn't always fast at all).

I'm a former adventure tour guide who loves sharing Berber culture (and food) with the world. I live in my hometown of Imintantoute with my beautiful wife Fayza and my three amazing children, Anir (10), Lina (4) and Assia (1). My aunt and uncle, Fatima and Brahim, often stay with us, helping out with the cooking (you have to try Fatima's fresh-baked flat bread), the kids and the donkey, whose name is Donkey.
We love welcoming guests into our home so much that we've built 14 guest rooms and eight bathrooms. Fayza and Fatima love hosting cooking classes, and Brahim specialises in taking guests to the local weekly market for breakfast. My brother Jamal often drops by to give Arabic and Tamazight (the Berber language) classes.
