Travellers often stay on the periphery of societies they visit, but our staff take you straight to the heart of a Moroccan family home. You bring your heart to the heart of Moroccan communities and go away knowing a lot more and feeling very different. Holidays with Heart are special.
To secure your place on a holiday Book Now.
Our holistic holidays bring a real connection with local people, the landscape, the culture, the environment, the food and our community projects.
“Most travel, and certainly the rewarding kind, involves depending on the kindness of strangers, putting yourself into the hands of people you don’t know and trusting them with your life.” Paul Theroux, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star
Connecting with People
From the moment you arrive in Morocco, there is the chance to get to know a group of enthusiastic, genuine, interesting people: our staff and their contacts.
Their engagement with you brings a feeling of connection with the Moroccan culture and local people in this fascinating area.
You also have the chance to bond with like-minded guests.
Connecting with Our Projects
The projects we support are on a human scale so that visitors can meet and interact with the beneficiaries and feel positive energy and compassion for people, animals and the planet.
Projects include the Bee Orchard, the Orphanage, Street Children’s Project, the Busy Bee Centre, Soap-making, Embroidery and various cooperatives.
Many projects support women and children.
It’s about feeling:
- responsible, excited and connected
- aware and wanting to contribute
- good through giving and receiving support.
It’s not an ordinary holiday. It’s more than that. Responsible Tourism is a part of it; choices are another part. We make it easy for you to use resources responsibly, by providing for example:
- Tassels for towels so that you can keep track of yours when it’s hung on the terrace to air.
- Buckets to fill with surplus water in the shower. Grey water can then be used to irrigate plants etc.
- Solar panels to heat water
- Locally sourced vegetarian food or meat and fish if you choose
Nothing’s prescribed; we make it easy to go with the ethical flow.
“You are very committed to sustainable practices. So much so that guests don’t even need to think about it!” G Mark. Dec. 2015
Most of all, Holidays with Heart give you a real chance to tread carefully on the Road less Travelled, leaving an imprint only where appropriate and having opportunities to be involved – contributing ideas about products, volunteering, introducing volunteers, bringing donations for the projects…
