This lovely Riad tucked away at one side of the old city (Medina) was a gem of a place to stay in. The hosts, Gilles and Dominique made you feel welcome from the start. Ending our desert tour, Gilles met the car on the street and walked us in to the Riad. He and Dominique sat with us, served mint... More

The riad is down a quiet little side street in an area not far from the souks and the Jemaa El Fna square. The area it is in you get no hassle from everybody and it stays lit because of the street lights and shops until late. The place is beautifully decorated and very clean. The hosts Giles and Dominque... More

Gilles, Dominique, Khalifa and the other staff members, thank you so much for your hospitality which was second to none. You guys are simply the best - friendly, pleasant, very helpful, patient and warm hearted. Your clean Riad felt like home away from home. I will surely be back. Keep up the good work!!! 👍

Our experience was as good as all the glowing reviews say. The evening taster meal was excellent. Mint tea at sunset on the roof terrace was a delight. Gilles has a wealth of good hints for your stay. Merci, Gilles et Dominique.

The location was perfect for exploring the old city. The riad's rooms are beautiful, wonderful colors, traditional craftwork beautifully executed. Intimate without being crowded, lovely courtyard in the center of the building with a central garden. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Excellent breakfast includes local specialties.

Dominique and Gilles et al were all so wonderful. From the moment we arrived, having been met at the taxi stand and winded down the narrow streets, we felt safe, cared for, and pampered. Tea was served and we immediately had the sense of being in a special place, treated like cherished family. It was so comfortable and relaxed. The... More

We had an amazing time staying with Giles and Dominique and staff. Where to start, it was all such a pleasant experience, that we ended up extending or 3 night stay to 11 nights! The riad and rooms were comfortable and had an authentic moroccan style. The breakfast was very tasty and complete with eggs, fresh yogurt, homemade jams, and... More
