Oudrif Brief

Experience a digital detox comfortably off-grid in nature


Our cottages were designed to blend into the landscape and the sites used were over-grazed by goats and no vegetation was destroyed in the process.

Environmental Impact

We use solar energy to light the buildings at night, for the fridges and to pump water from the river. We are totally independent of the municipal electricity and water grids; this reduces our demand on these resources and minimizes our carbon footprint.
