My daughter took me to Marrakech to stay at Dar Charkia for 4 nights to help celebrate this great coming of age! What a wonderful experience it was for us both to have time away together,staying at this creatively inspired riad. The attention to comfort and detail has to be seen to be experienced and the staff were an absolute credit to our hosts Lisa and Michael. The riad is perfectly situated to enable easy access to the different areas of the town and close to local taxis if so required (though we walked most of the time).My daughter together with some of Lisa's suggestions, had worked out a 'programme' of things to do over the 4 days. I was not disappointed with any aspect of our holiday. This included engaging a guide on one day,(4hrs) which we both thought excellent value, to be guided through the town with a commentary about the Marrakechy way of living ,a visit the fornoy to see where many local people take their bread to be baked, a visit to the herbalist to have the many different herbs and spices explained to us- amazing smells and stories here. At the beginning of our visit Lisa gave us a very helpful annotated map of the town identifying key localities including good 'watering holes' for us not to mention venues for shopping opportunities and places of significant historical interest.The weather was hot and we both relished the opportunity to come home to the riad each day and plunge into the refreshing pool in the courtyard together with whatever the particular drink of our choosing was that day! Lisa has ensured that the list is comprehensive. I can't wait to re visit Marakech and Dar Charkia will be my chosen place to stay.
