We were picked up at the airport by a taxi arranged by the riad, and dropped off near the riad & met by the local barrowman who set off at a fast clip with our bags in his cart. We were slightly concerned when he headed down an alley & hauled the cart over a massive mound of gravel blocking the alley - then a couple of turns & we were in the riad - & what a haven of peace & quiet after the razzamatazz of the medina.
Bouchra welcomed us & showed us our room on the first level - a day bed, a double bed with a small passage to bathroom & toilet - all beautiful lamps & screens. The late lunch (which we thought would be a sandwich) turned into a gorgeous tagine of meatballs & eggs.
The riad was a great place to stay - though in spite of maps & careful directions we kept getting lost somewhere not too far away, though once we found the vegetable market all was well.
Our room was quiet, the bed was comfortable, & everything about the riad was great. Staff very friendly & helpful - & contacted our tour guide to arrange our departure pickup.
Oh yes, by the time we went for our first walk an hour or so after we arrived, the mound of gravel had totally vanished - and the alley was far smoother!
