Lovely restored Riad (home) from 17th century, in the old part of Marrakesh (City Centre) Still with its original Arab style and architecture like the walls that 60-70 cm thick, great stuff for insulation. A large black & white handmade tiled courtyard and turquoise blue fountain. Some of the tiles may looks with stain mark on them or the color start to fade way (It’s their age, history why we keeping them) under a canopy of a family of four Orange, Grapefruit, Citron, and Pomegranate trees nestled in the middle with chirping birds sound. Moroccan style saloon on the first floor, great space to read a book, wind down with a cold beer, glass of fine Moroccan traditional red wine or just refresh up with a glass of mint-tea. Finely, the roof terrace where to enjoy plenty of sunshine during day time, breezier at night and its magnificent spot for the starry night watch with views of the ancient roof topped Marrakesh. We understand to respect the Moroccan law when it comes to restoring ancient building and by doing ours we kept the original vision of Moroccan architecture in keeping with Marrakesh medina’s rich history. To design the riad we chose materials and furnishers that we love for ourselves too. Living room: Is a large Moroccan courtyard with turquoise Blue fountain, trees nestled in the middle with chirping birds? Saloon on the first floor, great space to read a book, wind down with cold beer, glass of fine Moroccan traditional red wine or just refresh up with a glass of mint-tea. Finally, the sunny roof terrace, surrounded by various typical Moroccan plants, where to enjoy a plenty of sunshine during day time, breezier at night and its magnificent spot for the starry night watch with views of the ancient roof topped Marrakesh. Wi-Fi: Tea, coffee are on the house and Wi-Fi connection access is available throughout the riad . Tip: Moustapha, who look after the riad, is an invaluable resource especially for first time visiting Marrakech. He’s the person with contacts to may good drivers and guides if you are interested in discovering the ancient Medina, cultural and historical aspects of Marrakesh for half-day tour at cost of 45 Euros. He can also organize amazing excursions if you are looking to go on day(s) trip to discover both tribes ‘Berber’s and Saharawi’s’ for group or individual.
