Noel and Fabrice are the most wonderfully attentive hosts who made out four night stay at their riad an absolute joy. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, the plunge pool was well used by our daughter and I loved spending the afternoons reading on the roof terrace after a hectic morning in the souks. The riad is right in the centre...

Welcomed with tea on the roof terrace, and then not only were we recommended a place to eat that suited our requirements (traditional Moroccan food, alcohol, music), but were guided through the streets to the restaurant door by the very helpful Riad owner to decide see the menu and decide for ourselves. This was above and beyond, and felt like...

Noel and Fabrice SO welcoming and sorted out the issue with leaving my camera in the car by making the calls for help. Once that was done, we asked their advice on where to buy something, and they personally took us to the most likely street. It was my birthday, and they very sweetly brought out a birthday fromage avec...

We stayed at Ridl Villa el Arsa in July 2012 for four nights. Because we have four children under seven, the youngest just walking, we took the whole house. the two french owners live on site, and treated us wonderfully, taking time to accompany us around the souk, to the hamman and around the town. My children were smitten, both...

This is an excellent Riad is located in the medina. Clean, superb rooms with bath and shower, friendly service. Better than average breakfasts are served on the roof - although there is not much of a view from the roof - pity! Only real "issue" is that it is located down a warren of narrow streets and, it is easy...

My girlfriend and I spent three lovely nights at Villa el Arsa and it could not have been a better experience.

My sister & I stayed at the Villa El Arsa in May 2012 and had a fantastic time. Noel (one of the owners) met us at the airport and took us to this stunning Riad in the Medina in Marrakech. Behind the heavy wooden door lay a quiet haven. It has a gorgeous central courtyard with retractable roof, where we...

What a great introduction to Marrakesh. Noel, Fabrice and Simo were very welcoming and we were very well looked after. We especially valued all the tips and advice about local attractions and insights into living in Marrakesh. The Riad is well located for everything in the Medina and is only a short walk from the Jmaa el Fnaa, but is...

We had a family party of eight of us and so we took over the whole Riad. It is the most beautiful building, with well preserved architectural features but that is only the back drop to the most warm welcome.
