Marrakech is a city of contrasts and history. Life within the enclosing pink hued walls of the Medina is one of daily survival for many and air is full of energy as the local population goes about a thousand trades. The street pattern remains medieval and in spite of the general limit of two and three storey buildings the residential density within most of the 'quartiers' within the Medina must be very high by UK averages. Yet step into any of the 'derb' cul-de-sac clusters of tightly packed buildings and you immediately leave behind the hustle and bustle of the criss-cross main 'rues'. Entering your destination doorway, set into one of the sheer enclosing walls of the access walkway, is to step into another world, like Alice through the looking glass! Such was our experience when we first arrived at Riad Tibibt, an oasis of quiet calm, yet a few minutes walk from many of the City's premier sites. A very warm welcome was also awaiting with the careful and attentive service of house manager Abdul supported by the quiet and efficient Fatima and the discreet yet personal oversight of the owner Erwan. We were made to feel immediately at home and no enquiry or request for assistance or advice went without solicitous response.
We have no hesitation in recommending Riad Tibibt to those travellers wanting to experience life within the Medina.
