This delightfully restored 19 century private house is tucked away behind high walls along a narrow alley in the heart of the Medina, close to the historic Bahia and Badi Palaces and within easy walking distance of the lively souks and the delights of the Jemma el Fna Square. Once inside, the riad is a haven of peace and tranquillity, where cool interiors are set off by stylish traditional furniture, colourful furnishings and contemporary objets d’art. Many original features have been retained in the restoration, such as intricate stucco work, ornately carved woodwork and colourful polished tadelakt walls.
The villa is made up of two attractive riads, where all the rooms overlook a central patio. The larger courtyard, with its soaring white arches, huge palms and tumbling bougainvillea is also home to an inviting plunge pool (4m x 2m) and a comfortable seating area. This delightful house offers plenty of space and cosy nooks to retreat to; a huge first-floor lounge and dining room, a separate library and a wonderful roof terrace with stunning views over the Medina rooftops towards the Atlas Mountains.
