Situated bang in the centre of the medina in Taroudant this is a perfect little oasis of peace and quiet. We tried self drive from Agadir and negotiating the maze of streets in the medina was quite an adventure, and we ended up parking at the nearest convenient place, walking to the riad and once we had walked a route back to the car, drove to the parking area just outside the Riad. Like all the Moroccan riads, the plain doorway belies the beauty of the interior. The check-in is easy and relaxed with a refreshing welcome drink. The rooms are all individually decorated in traditional style with thick walls which although need a little warming in the winter would be nice and cool in the summer. there is a safe in each room and a hairdryer plus a little dish of cakes which is a nice touch.
Being in the centre of the medina everything is in easy reach but with the lovely courtyard and swimming pool in the riad it can be a little difficult to tear yourself away.
The breakfast is lovely with fresh breads cakes and preserves. Dinner can be ordered earlier on in the day and although there is no choice we were not disappointed with everything being freshly prepared and lots of argan oil to dress your salad.
Meryem and her staff did everything to make our stay comfortable (despite their lack of English and our lack of French and Arabic). Reasonably priced and a great little find.
