We arrived down the alley and walked in the door to heaven. Our cases vanished to our rooms (thanks Aziz!) and we sat under the banana tree in the courtyard where our hands were washed with warm water poured over from a brass jar over a basin before we were given mint tea to relax us. We then got a brief info of our location and what was nearby and what to do, where to go, where to eat etc.
There are only 4 rooms in this riad and so it was really peaceful. Sadly we only had 2 nights and so did not get to do the cookery course we could have done as the food here was amazingly good. Everyone was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We also stayed in El Fenn and while we loved it too, both experiences were totally different. We would return to both for different reasons. This was a place of calm with amazing food and would be lovely to take over with a group of friends as it is so small.
