This fabulous Riad, dating from the 18th Century, offers an oasis of peace and calm in the centre of Marrakech. Its unobtrusive entrance, through a simple door in a back street, gives no hint of the luxurious accommodation behind! Its convenient location means that it is just a few minutes walk from the souks and the Museum of Marrakech.
The interiors have been beautifully decorated and furnished, retaining traditional features and the atmosphere of an ancient residence.
The entrance and the large suites and apartments open to patios. The most demanding of guests are made welcome in the dining and relaxing areas, ideal places to listen to music, read a book or taste the typical Moroccan delicacies; meals are served there as well as on the terraces and in the suites.
