Interaction with guests
I divide my time between Edinburgh and Marrakesh and when I am at the riad, I enjoy sharing my experiences of Marrakech as well as being available to give advice & tips to make guests' stay as enjoyable & memorable as possible.
Our riad is situated in a peaceful residential neighbourhood in a quiet derb ( street). I really like that are Moroccan families also living here. We are members of the local Community Association which supports local community projects. Our neighbourhood bakery is nearby as are the markets where local people shop. This all gives guests a wonderful to observe local life a world away from the tourist attractions. However in a few minutes you can also be in the heart of the souks where all the action is!
The Marrakech medina is best explored on foot. For journeys to the New town & the Marjorelle gardens it is easy to get a 'petit' taxi on the Main square. Taxis are plentiful & cheap.
The horse drawn calaches are also a lovely way of seeing the sights.
Other things to note
Free wi - fi is available throughout the riad. Electrical appliances work on 2 pin European plugs.
Please note there is a Kingdom of Morocco Visitor Tax of 2.5 Euros per person per night ( age 16 or over) payable at the riad.
Smoking is only permitted on the roof terrace.
We ask all guests to respect the peace of the riad and the privacy of other guests.
Hi, I'm Linda & I live between Edinburgh in Scotland & Marrakech, Morocco. My husband & I found our beautiful Marrakesh house in 2008 & spent a lot of time restoring this lovely old building using traditional materials and the skills of local craftsmen. We love Marrakech for the sunshine and the warmth and charm of its people. We always enjoy meeting our guests and sharing our experiences with them. Marrakesh is such an exotic and fascinating city and is only a few hours flight away from most European cities.
I always aim to respond to enquiries quickly. My usual response time is about 2 hours ( allowing for time differences!)
