Tucked away in the heart of the Medina yet within easy reach of the Souks and the Jemaa el Fna square, this delightful riad offers the highest standards of accommodation, style and service. The pretty central courtyard with its graceful towering arches, palms and orange trees is designed according to the traditions of Moroccan architecture and creates a wonderfully tranquil atmosphere. The use of natural light and restful colours also contributes to this feeling of peace. The centre-piece is an inviting pool surrounded by alcoves with low tables and seating, providing cosy corners in which to rest after a day out in the Medina.
The owners’ love of Morocco and its rich history of traditional craftsmanship and decorative arts are reflected in their stylish choice of furnishings, fabrics, paintings and accessories. Everything has been chosen with exquisite taste and great attention to detail. Leading off the courtyard, there is an attractive dining room ideal for candlelit dinners, plus a separate lounge with an open-fireplace. An extensive library and a good choice of CD’s is also available for guest’s use. Upstairs the elegant bedrooms look out over the courtyard and are all tastefully furnished with colourful local fabrics, crisp Egyptian cotton sheets and duvets, while the en suite bathrooms offer double hand basins, walk-in showers and state-of-the-art fittings.
Under the warm African sun an attractive roof terrace offers further space for sunbathing or dining alfresco, and has distant views of the Atlas Mountains; whilst a tented area with low tables and comfortable seating also offers shade. The villa is fully-staffed and is an ideal venue for a celebration party. Their talented young Moroccan chef can prepare delicious meals and canapés and he also arranges Cookery lessons. This riad offers a haven of peace, where guests can relax and get away from the stress and demands of their daily life. Early booking is recommended.
