Homestays Morocco provides the perfect vacation for independent travellers and small groups who want a true cultural experience of Morocco at a reasonable price.
Stay with Berber families in the beautiful Tighza Valley, high in the Atlas Mountains, where you can enjoy the culture and lifestyle.
Riad Kasbah Oliver offers additional comfort whilst upholding the philosophy of Homestays.
Riad Kasbah Oliver is run by Mohamed and his brother Ahmed who were both born in Tighza. It was designed, by Mohamed's British wife, as both a home and a family run guesthouse.
Riad Kasbah Oliver and Homestays are sustainable tourism projects which directly benefit the host families and local communities.
We encourage guests to get involved with project work and the village to help improve the lives and environment of the people.
EARTHQUAKE DAMAGE in TIGHZA KASBAH AND HOMESTAYS TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
At 11:11pm on 8 September 2023 a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Morocco. The epicentre was in the High Atlas Mountains in an area not known for earthquakes. The quake was felt as far away as Essouira, Casablanca, Rabat, Fes as well as in Algeria and Portugal. Aftershocks may occur for days or weeks after the initial quake. Businesses and homes all over Morocco are waiting for visits from the local authorities to conduct damage reports. Rural communities are likely to have to wait longer than cities. Until these are done repairing the damage cannot start. We will update the website as soon as we have further news.
