Its magnificent terrace allowed us to rest and relax after a hard day of shopping and haggling, excellent dining and drinking mint tea. Its a clean riad with lovely... More

Michele and Grant are wonderful hosts with excellent knowledge of the area. Afternoon tea is a delight with a different home made cake each day. You will be sure to... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at this beautiful riad. It's location within the Medina is ideal to visit the sights of Marrakech. The beautifully decorated riad provides peaceful, tranquillity after the streets of Marrakech.
