Location description from owner

The Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region

Marrakech or Marrakesh , known as the "Ochre city", is the most important former imperial city in Morocco's history. The city of Marrakech is the capital of the mid-southwestern economic region of Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, near the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, being also the fourth largest city in Morocco according to the 2004 census.

Like many Moroccan cities, the city of Marrakech comprises both an old fortified city (the médina) and modern neighborhoods, the most prominent of which is Gueliz, for a total population of 794,620 and 1,063,415 in the metropolitan area (2004 census).[1] It is served by Ménara International Airport (IATA code: RAK) and a rail link to Casablanca and the north.

Marrakech has the largest traditional market (souk) in Morocco and also has one of the busiest squares in Africa and the world, Djemaa el Fna.[2] The square bustles with acrobats, story-tellers, water sellers, dancers and musicians. By night food stalls open in the square turning it into a huge busy open-air restaurant.

Marrakech

From the moment you arrive in Marrakesh, you’ll get the distinct feeling you’ve left something behind – a toothbrush or socks, maybe? But no, what you’ll be missing in Marrakesh is predictability and all sense of direction. Never mind: you’re better off without them here. Marrakesh is too packed with mind-boggling distractions and labyrinthine alleyways to adhere to boring linear logic. If you did have a destination, you’d only be waylaid by snake charmers, out-of-control donkey carts, trendy silver leather poufs and ancient Berber cures for everything from relationships to rent.

Start at the action-packed Djemaa el-Fna, and if you can tear yourself away from the castanet-clanging water-sellers and turbaned potion-sellers, head into Marrakesh’s maze of covered market streets. Marrakesh’s souqs are like a cold riad plunge pool on a scorching July day: nothing quite prepares you for the shock. Dive in headfirst at any street headed north off the Djemaa el-Fna, and with any luck you’ll emerge exhilarated and triumphant some hours later, carpet in tow.

While you’re in the heart of the Medina, you may come upon a palace museum, stay in a riad guest-house, and venture a dish of piping-hot snails. But it’s worth leaving the charms of the old city occasionally for dinner, drinks, art galleries and fixed-price boutique shopping in the ville nouvelle (the new town). Go with the flow, and become an honorary Marrakshi bahja (joyous one).

“Fabulous Riad in the Heart of Marrakech”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2015

This Riad is in a fabulous location, just south of the main square and provides a peaceful getaway after a long days sightseeing. Staying there in December we took the opportunity to use the terrace for breakfast in the morning and the fire in the sitting room at night. The place is transformed in the evenings by candlelight, which provides a very calming atmosphere. We enjoyed having this house to ourselves, yet it provides all the benefits of being in a hotel. It is very comfortable and clean, Fatima is so lovely and helpful- nothing is too much trouble for her and she makes a lovely breakfast and her evening meals were the best we had in Marrakech- highly recommended. Pierre and his team give lots of help and advice. We had a lovely trip to the Ourika valley and waterfalls, driven by Hassan, who can also transfer you from the airport to the Riad. Be prepared to have to visit other places along the way, however! A great experience overall.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the compliments, it is always a pleasure to see that our efforts to make your holidays a special time are appreciated. I will pass on your comments to the team.

“Fantastic Riad in the heart of Marrakech”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2015

Fantastic Riad in the heart of Marrakech, close to all the action in a quiet side street. Fatima the housekeeper will look after you and cook you the most authentic meals and breakfasts. Our fist trip to Marrakech but not our last. This is the perfect spot to experience the atmosphere.

“Oasis of Calm from the madness of Marrakech”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2015

We had always wanted to visit Marrakech and found this fabulous Riad and liaising with Pierre (the owner) could not have been easier. Pierre provided suggestions of things to do and places to go, as well as sorting out a guided tour of the Souks. The Riad itself is an oasis; Marrakech is a delightfully busy place but here you are offered a sanctuary only 5 minutes walk from the main square. It has been beautifully restored and is a very comfortable place to spend time. Pierre provides a maid (Fatima) who comes in every day and cleans, but also makes fantastic breakfasts each morning. Also, her traditional evening meals were some of the best food we had - although the portions are very generous. Would highly recommend and look forward to returning!

“Magnifique riad entièrement rénové avec beaucoup de goût”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2015

Deux adultes, deux enfants (4 ans et 10 mois). Très belle riad marocaine, décoré avec beaucoup de goût et assez pratique pour une maison sur 3 niveau. Elle très bien entretenu et propre avec du personnel accueillant et bienveillant. Fatima nous a gardé notre petit avec beaucoup d'attention ; elle a aussi préparé des délicieuses repas pour nous tous et le bébé. Une chambre est très pratique, au calme et avec une salle de bain par contre l'autre chambre est vraiment brouillante car elle donne sur la rue où malgré que sa petite taille il y a beaucoup de passage, bruits, conversations, motos... il vaut mieux prévoir des bouchons pour pouvoir dormir tranquillement. Le riad est très bien placé, à 2 min de la place jemaa el fna où on peut prendre le taxi facilement.

“ideal place for Saint-Valentine!”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2015

We had a fanstastic time in this Riad. We were warmly welcome and had lovely meals on the Terrasse. It was great to have this beautiful space just for us, lovely fire in the cheminee in the evening. What a lovely place for the lovers!

“A beautiful haven in the midst of the bustle of Marrakech”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2014

We had the most amazing time at Dar Yaoumi, Marrakech and Morocco. We think the country is beautiful and the people so friendly and welcoming. And as for this Riad - what can I say? It was so beautiful and peaceful and well thought out. It is more beautiful than the photos can portray. We loved the rooftop, especially the eating area with the curtains, we loved the décor (the girls especially loved the tassles!), we loved Fatima, we loved Fatima's tagine!, we loved the location (I really hadn't realised just how close it was to the main square). Basically we loved everything! Pierre was very helpful before our arrival - nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him. Thank you to Pierre and Fatima for a wonderful stay.

“I strongly recomment this place”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2014

We spent one week with our children. The location is great, very convenient to visit Marrakech All the team here is nice, welcoming and very helpful. On top of this, Fatima's food is delicious and the riad very well decorated, charming and conformable. Our stay was fantastic and I strongly recommend this place

“Amazing stay”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2014

We all needed a break from the English swamp weather and this is just perfect. It is so beautifully decorated, and the position!! Quiet and tucked away, but just 2 minutes from the square and souks. Fatima, Hassan and Greg were incredibly helpful too. We loved being there and are so grateful for everyone's kindness.

“A special little place in the heart of Marrakech”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2013

On arrival in Marrakech late evening we were collected promptly from the airport by Abdal and delivered directly to the medina. A short walk through a bustling street brought us to our private Riad located in a quiet side street. Pre-ordering a delicious three course meal from Fatima was exactly the right thing to do and was eaten on the roof terrace as the day cooled( just a bit!) we can particularly recommend the beef, fig and walnut tagine and the fish tagine we had later in the week. As there were four of us, Fatima was happy to prepare two different dishes on each of the nights we ate in at very competitive prices. Plenty of room in the fridge freezer to cool the wine! The two double bedrooms are fully air conditioned and the proximity of the property to the main square made it possible to make short trips out to the souks and sights with regular trips back for a shower, refreshment and a rest. We arranged all our trips out of town via the owner Pierre. We particularly enjoyed a full day out to Ait Benhaddou, passing up and over the Atlas Mountains to the gateway to the desert. Fatima came in to prepare us a fresh early breakfast and Abdal took us wherever we wanted to go, stopping for photographs, refreshments and lunch. On another day we arranged a late afternoon trip to the Majorelle gardens, delivered and collected from the doors, avoiding the heat of the day. The property is located a short walk from the main square yet it is quiet and peaceful. Serviced daily by Fatima who serves breakfast ( yummy pancakes and freshly squeezed juice) on the roof terrace or in the downstairs diner as you prefer. Comfortable beds, huge fluffy towels and lashings of hot or cold water for showers. The property is tastefully decorated in hues to match the agaves on the roof terrace with authentic finishing touches. If you are eating out, do refer to Pierre's recommendations. His favourite restaurant, literally just around the corner, added a touch of luxury as well as excellent food to our last evening. It has its own cookery school and a different five course dinner each night. A tip for your final day if like us you are flying out late and the weather is hot. Pierre arranged for us to be dropped off around 11.30 at the Beldin Country club located out of town. We signed in as day guests which gave us use of the pool, loungers and spa as well as a 3 course lunch! Hassan returned at 6.30 to deliver us and our cases directly to the airport - less than a 15 minute drive away. A perfect relaxing end to a wonderful stay. To conclude, what made our stay so special was the first rate service provided by Pierre, Fatima, Abdal and Hassan. Gill, Rob, Glenda and Graham

“Lovely private Riad in excellent location”

Reviewed 11 May 2013

Lovely Riad and it was as nice as my sister described as she went there a couple of years ago. The transfers were smooth and Hassan took us to Le Bled one day where we spent a relaxing day by the pool in such a lovely traditional place. We had meals at Riad Monceau (our favorite) and at meal at the Jardins Medina (although the service was very slow as they admitted they were over booked) and the surroundings for both were lovely. We really enjoyed the buzz in Marrakech itself and the Riad is in the perfect place. As for Fatima the maid who will cook for you, what can I say? She is so sweet and discreet that you would hardly know she was there! Her cooking skills are fabulous and we had 2 meals with her which were excellent. Greg who supports the holiday makers was also very helpful and arranged the transfers to Le Bled for us. We would definitely recommend it all to our friends and would like to go back one day ourselves.
