1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

So many things! The bus journey going up into the mountains. Seeing the almond blossom. The water irrigation system, & the gardens amid the harsh mountains. Being involved in the Berber music evening

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take a hot water bottle (beg March) and pack of cards. Being prepared to learn their language is good way to make connection and fun. I took hair bands and excess jewellery and gave them as gifts to the women. This was greatly appreciated.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely! We felt our money went straight to the family we were staying with and was much appreciated.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant experience, could have done with clearer information about local family life.

Thank you for your kind comments Hannah. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall. A hot water bottle is an excellent suggestion I will add it to our list of things to bring. The family did have access to a radiator from another property but overlooked it for which we apologise. Villagers are often keen to participate and learn new games so card games and travel board games prove an amusing and engaging pastime for both guests and hosts. Most women speak only their own language and some of the younger women speak school level French, though those who left school within the first few years do not. We are trying to attract retired teachers as guests to help with some basic foreign language teaching! Thank you again for your comments. We hope you visit again.
