Situated in a quiet street in the Kasbah area of the ancient walled Medina, close to the historic Saadian Tombs and the Royal Palace, This is an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city after a day out visiting the many interesting monuments, gardens and colourful souks.
The calm, residential street was once where only the courtiers of the Sultan’s palace lived. Today the Kasbah is alive with street markets, children playing, artisans and Moroccans going about their daily life. Just a fascinating walk through the lively souks to the famous Place Jemma el Fna, this lovely riad is an ideal choice for both families or a small group of friends.
This is a traditional Moroccan riad style townhouse, (dar means house in Arabic), built around a charming interior courtyard with mosaic mural fountain and palm trees, and has recently been completely restored, combining traditional features with stylish contemporary design and modern facilities. On the roof top is a pretty flower-filled terrace, where guests can bask in the sun, read under the pergola or enjoy a drink while admiring the azure blue skies and soaring storks.
The spacious air-conditioned bedrooms have been stylishly decorated and the cool beige walls are offset by colourful glass windows, furnishings and wall-hangings. All have en suite bathrooms with showers, finished in colourful local tadelakt and zelliges. For cooler evenings, there is a comfortable traditional-style Moroccan lounge/dining room with open-fire, satellite TV, DVD and internet connection.
