Having never been to Marrakesh before, we took this Riad on a recomendation. At first, I was worried about what we had done as we walked down poorly lit aleys you would avoid in the UK. What was all the fuss about?
Once through the little door in a wall everything made sense.
The owners, Peirre-Alain and Pacal are wonderfully friendly and well-versed with un-intitiated travellers. They know lots about the city and they are happy to share their advise and help make reservations etc.
The following day and we woke at 10.30 to be led to the roof terrace for a wonderful breakfast (included). Pascal gave us a roof top guided tour. The Riad is very centrally located right in the heart of the medina, close enough to the main activity to be there in 5 mins but far enough for peace and quiet. It really was perfect.
Marrakesh is an infusion of colours, sounds and cultures. Its facinating and exhausting. At the end of the day, it was a pleasure to walk (the very safe) alleys to find out temporay home. Thanks PA and P.
