In February this year we spent five intense days in Marrakech, soaking up its crowded alleys, buzzing souks, chaotic traffic and shouting hagglers.
...And if it hadn't been for Riad Tchaikana, our peaceful oasis in the midst of all that craziness, we may not have hacked the fast pace! Breakfast on the roof terrace with a view across rooftops to the Atlas Mountains. Romantic dinners cooked by the riad's own Bushra with market produce of the day, served under the orange trees in the beautiful courtyard. And the rooms, the balconies, the stylish decor, the colours, the lighting! Everything was perfect - simple yet intricate, contemporary and fresh yet unmistakably Moroccan.
Barbara and Jean-Louis were brilliant, on hand every day to provide advice, book restaurants and hammams, and even helped organise our trip to the Atlas mountains. Their lovely staff were just as faultless, drawing maps for us and even talking us through their Tagine recipes with the most personal service imaginable.
I simply can't recommend this place enough!
Please note that we had to transfer a deposit ahead of our visit, and pay the rest in cash. Don't be put off by this - they're genuine!
