Fabulous Riad in the centre of Marrakech
A beautiful Moroccan Riad built around an open central courtyard, with 6 lovely and individually decorated double bedrooms, all with air con/heating and iPod docks. The house can be rented as a whole, or on a Maison d'Hôtes basis by the room. There are plenty of places to relax, the romantic B'hou in the courtyard overlooking the stunning black-tiled pool, the salon, cool in summer and cosy in winter, and the wonderful roof terrace, where you can relax with a book or board game all provided for you, help yourself to a drink from the honesty bar, or just soak up the usually reliable Moroccan sun. We have a wonderful team of staff to look after your needs, and an excellent cook should you wish to dine in the Riad or under the stars on the terrace. An excellent Moroccan breakfast is included, as are flowers, toiletries and a welcome tea and cakes. The english owners are resident in Marrakech, and so are on hand to make sure you have a wonderful and memorable stay.
The Riad is ideally situated in the heart of the oldest quarter of the Medina, a short walk to the Medersa Ben Youssef, the Musée de Marrakech and the souks about a 10 minute walk through the colourful and vibrant souks to the famous Place Jemaa el Fna. After a welcome cup of Moroccan tea and cakes, the owners are happy to take guests through the fascinating labyrinth of the Medina streets to help new arrivals to get their bearings and thereby get the most out of their stay.
There are many and varied restaurants in Marrakech and the owners are happy to give advice and to book restaurants on behalf of the guests. One of the best restaurants in the Medina, Le Foundouk, is situated only a few minutes walk from the Riad and, of course, guests are able dine in the Riad or on the roof terrace, on wonderful Moroccan cuisine. The souks are a few minutes walk away, and there are general stores very close by.
