The view of nature . This place is unique from its location: in the countryside facing the chain of Moroccan Atlas and only half an hour from the center of Marrakesh and the international airport . Food, fully following the organic agriculture is also produced locally. The time can be for relaxation and contemplation.

Risks and challenges
Building is administratively cumbersome . Given the eco-sustainable concept, I am hopeful that the permits are granted on time . Some officials have expressed enthusiasm for this approach, which is part of the environmental policy conducted by the kingdom and will certainly facilitate administrative procedures. For the aspects directly related to the construction, labor is local and experienced .
