This was our first trip to Marrakech, Morocco and indeed Africa and what a welcome we received! First of all Michel's riad is just beautiful. Spotlessly clean with beautiful decor and delightful personal touches such as a vase of freshly cut roses in the room one day and a figs, apricots and homemade sparkly biscuits the next. He is the epitome of helpful, friendly hosting. He came to find us on our first day when we got lost and welcomed us into his home with freshly made mint tea. In the evening he even walked with us into the medina to ensure we didn't get lost a second time! The dinner we enjoyed one evening was absolute Michelin star catering and he was more than happy to oblige when we asked for his advice on booking a trip to the atlas mountains and a private hammam. I cannot recommend Michel and his beautiful riad enough to you, he is Italian but speaks perfect French, Arabic and good English. Enjoy the abundant breakfasts! Happy adventuring!
