This lovingly restored riad is a welcome hideaway in the heart of the medina.

Hidden away within the medina, this is an authentic escape and a cosy retreat to return to after days spent exploring Marrakech. As with all riads, the large ornamental courtyard is the focal point here, furnished with comfortable sofas for lounging and trees and shrubs centred around the rose petal-filled fountain. It’s particularly enchanting after dark, when the tree-hung lanterns and candles cast a warm glow.

Meals are served on the patio or in the lounge, and there’s a strong emphasis on Moroccan and French cuisine – home-cooked tagines are a speciality. On the rooftop there’s a sun deck and Jacuzzi. Opposite, a small dar is beautifully decorated, showcasing regional designs and beautiful painted cedar wood ceilings, and housing a hammam and massage treatment room.

Rooms and suites are divided between the main riad and the smaller dar. They are simple yet delightfully presented, each with air-conditioning and a bathroom featuring a shower and brass sink encased in traditional tiling. There’s the choice between Standard Rooms, more spacious Superior Rooms, and Suites that have a sitting area and bathroom with bath and shower.
