We stayed in the Sabra suite which was beautiful and, like the whole Riad spotlessly clean.
The Riad is definitely a haven of beauty and calm in the midst of the chaos of the Medina! For convenience it would be hard to beat, the famous "square" and the souks are just a few minutes away on foot, however, as mentioned by other guests, the truly outstanding feature of this Riad is Valerie herself, she ensures that each guest has as much or as little attention as they need, and everyone is personally drawn maps by hand by Valerie as she explains each step of the journey you wish to take, you are of course also supplied with the usual tourist information maps as well as a local mobile in case of emergency and a wealth of personal knowledge of the area is yours for the asking.
I would recommend Cherratta to anyone looking for a Riad with panache (as one would expect from a chic French hostess), my only word of caution in an honest review would be that the "call to prayer" from the mosques can be heard early in the morning, having said that, although I heard them every morning, my husband didn't hear them once...!!!.A final word of warning, Friday is the religious day in Morocco and the early morning call to prayer goes on for longer than usual. This is the only downside to actually staying inside the Medina walls, bear in mind that anywhere you stay within the walls you will hear the call to prayer.
The toiletries supplied in the bathroom were so lovely that I "googled" them upon my return to the UK and discovered that they are an expensive and authentic local range with Argan oil.
And finally, the breakfasts are huge! I have certain dietary needs which were accommodated brilliantly.
