A perfect retreat from the bustle of Marrakech. Excellent location in the medina, the airport pick up was much appreciated, we'd never have found the riad on our own - a problem we didn't have after Muriel had given us a really helpful map! The decor is lovely, orange trees, lots of alcoves with sofas, fresh fruit, orange juice, tea and coffee whenever you wanted it and at no charge. Breakfast simple but well presented, fresh and more than enough to keep you going till lunchtime. We ate an evening meal in the riad twice - the food was really good, tasty and authentic and if I'm honest better than anything we had in local restaurants. Muriel and Laurent were brilliant. Don't bother booking any trips till you get to the riad. The hosts know the good companies and are happy to arrange your trip for you . Henna tattooes can also be arranged if you want - done by the cooks friend and really beautiful designs. Sun terrace and loungers fantastic especially after a day in the souks.
This was our second visit to Marrakech and we will return - to this riad!
