Wow!!!!!! From the second you step foot on the soil of this country, you will not be disappointed!!! From the second you step outside the airport in Marrakech, your adventure begins!!! You will be met by an immaculately dressed gentleman in traditional Moroccan attire who will whisk you away to the depths of the medina!!!!
And here is where your magical adventure will start!!! When you arrive to your destination,Riad Laurence Olivier, you will be surrounded by the culture of Marrakech; its dusty narrow cobbled streets, locals sitting chatting on their doorsteps, the smells of different traditional dishes wafting from people's windows.... But then after a few steps up a dark cobbled street impassable for cars, behind a huge hand carved oval brass door is an oasis of light, tranquility and Moroccan luxury!!!
Having been lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard by Laurence and her husband, you will be welcomed by Laurence and her staff and instantly made to feel at home!!!
Every detail of this beautiful house has been carefully chosen, handmade or hand carved!! Even the details on the bannister surrounding the upstairs gallery is not to be missed...they are passionate about this country, which is made so apparent by their enthusiasm of the place and its culture!!
If I tell you anymore it will spoil the surprise!!!!
I truly had a wonderfully exciting and magical time , which was most definitely down to the kind hospitality of this amazing lady, her amazing home, her incredible knowledge and attentive staff!! I would recommend this riad a million times over and then some, and just can't wait to go back again hopefully towards the end of this year!!!
Thankyou Laurence!!! See you soon.
