Hi, I'm Linda from Edinburgh & I have a management consultancy business. I love Marrakech for the sunshine and the warmth and charm of its people. I love to visit our lovely riad as often as we can & I also enjoy sharing it with guests.
Year purchased: 2008
Why the owner chose a home in this location
Morocco is a country where you can experience a taste of the exotic within a three- and a half hour flight from Europe. It is a country of stunning beauty, variety and is an all the year round destination that enjoys an extremely pleasant climate. It has sandy beaches to the north and west, the breathtaking Atlas Mountains, and a number of lively cities, in particular Marrakech, also known as the Red City. Marrakech itself is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that offers a wide range of cafes, restaurants, night-clubs, bars, shops, cultural events and art galleries. There is also a good chance of rubbing shoulders with celebrities, given the thriving film industry and annual film festival.
Unique benefits of the property
Our riad is situated in a peaceful derb 5 minutes walk from the main square. We offer three double en-suite bedrooms plus a master suite, complete with hammam. Each en-suite bathroom has been traditionally decorated with Tadelakt and Moroccan tiles. All bedrooms are fitted with air-conditioning/heater units. Your bedroom will be cleaned each day by our housekeeper Fadila. Breakfast (croissants, pancakes with honey, tea, coffee and fresh orange juice) is included in the price. Our private cook would also be delighted to cook dinner for you (extra cost). From the roof terrace, there are lovely views across the medina, and towards the snow-capped Atlas mountains. An ideal setting for enjoying breakfast and relaxing.
