Riad Villa el Arsa in Marrakech was just delightful. Noel & Fabrice have pitched the level just right, they are there to help as much as you wish, providing maps and info and even putting a mobile in your room in case you get lost in town – very comforting if this is your first trip to Marrakech! The room was superb and breakfast very good. I wish we’d eaten there as I gather the food is fab (Fabrice was a chef in France before) and does offer cooking lessons which you will need to book ahead of arrival. Wonderful fires lit at night in the sitting area where you can swap daytime experiences & good company. They recommended a superb little restaurant in Essaouira with good food and music.
