Some years ago, my sister and I decided we would take holiday treats together, instead of buying birthday and Chrismas gifts. Our recent trip was to Marrakech, where we stayed at Dar Charkia. We located Dar Charkia on Tripadvisor; we were not disappointed. The ambiance and style of Dar Charkia is both restful and engaging, where the architecture and art of Morocco come together in a delightful, comfortable holiday residence.
We stayed in the Berber suite, a twin room with a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard. The breakfasts were delicious - a big plus is there is no time limit for having breakfast - and our decision to eat "at home" on two nights was well rewarded with delicious Moroccan food. Lisa, Michael and the staff of Dar Chakira were great. They took time to explain the environs of Marrakech and the possibilities that lay beyond the city for travel and fun activities.
The location of Dar Charkia is ideal for making one's way around the Medina, whether to the main tourists spots and souks, or to the local markets and shops of the residents. We walked everywhere; but, for those not inclined towards walking, there is a taxi rank just a couple of metres from the ryad.
The airport pick-up organised by Lisa and Michael was great. Although, on this occasion, we flew into Marrakesh, via the UK, airport pick-ups can be arranged from Agadir, which is great for those of us who would wish to take just one direct flight from Ireland.
We will definitely make a return visit
