For a couple of pensioners deciding to stay in the heart of the Medina in Marrakech was always going to be a bit of a step into the exotic other, but the Riad Magellan turned out to be as welcoming as we could have hoped for. Everything was just right – the comfortable en suite with festively scattered rose petals for arrival, the wonderful (and healthy!) breakfasts in the courtyard, the roaring wood fire for the cold evenings, the view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains from the roof terrace. Best of all was the help and advice from Philippe and his staff. Our arrival after a snow delayed flight from London was much eased by a waiting taxi and a porter to negotiate the maze of alleyways to the Riad and our departure by bus to Agadir was similarly facilitated. In the meantime we were given all the information we wanted on what to see and how to get around Marrakech, including a guide to escort us to the excellent Villa Flore Restaurant after our arrival. Altogether it turned out to be a very rewarding step into the unknown.
