This Riad, with French owners (though they also speak English) is so welcoming that every evening was like a home-coming. It is in the Medina a short walking distance from everything you are likely to want to see, but very quiet indeed. And the food is superb; you have to book a dinner the morning before because it is prepared specially for you, after discussion of its content! Riad Rafaele is different from several other Riads that we saw in Marrakech and Essaouira because the internal courtyard is very large, and filled with orange trees. So rooms that open onto the gallery are truly quiet and independent....in some small Riads you can almost reach across to the rooms opposite and the effect is claustrophobic. The owners also spend a lot of time advising and making guests feel at home, and they will organise transport and taxis and advise reliably on eating places and shopping. The whole place is decorated with cleverly chosen Moroccan goods. We will return!
