Even before we set off for Marrakech I felt confident that we had picked the right place having corresponded with Francoise on a couple of occasions. We arranged a taxi from the airport through the Riad, it made the trip into the Medina so easy (I recommend this, it was 12 Euros). Francoise met us at a car park not far from the Riad as cars cannot enter certain areas of the Medina. She is such a lovely person who went out of her way on our first night to show us the way to the main square. When we returned a pre-arranged dinner was almost ready. Being our first night arriving at about 8pm we thought it would be so relaxing to take dinner at the Riad, it was lovely meal and very nicely presented. I often worry about eating in foreign places not being one for spicy food; the meal however was really good. The Riad was like a haven away from all the noise and action of Marrakech, it was lovely inside, 5 rooms in all, 2 on the ground floor and three on the first floor, there was also a nice sun terrace on top of the building. We had breakfast in the central courtyard area as it was just a little too cool to eat outside on the sun terrace, after all it was January. The temperature was in the 20s throughout the day, which was very pleasant in short sleeves.
The location is superb as it is not far from the main square (where it all happens) and the souks. We actually ate one night in the main square at one of the food stalls which was an interesting experience and one which I would try again.
I would like to complement Francoise, Bernard and their staff at the Riad as they really looked after us.
