The result is a small luxury hotel that takes you back into several centuries of ambiance, while at the same time providing all the modern amenities....

Just outside of the medina, near of the door, easy reaching by car for travellers. It was very important for the owner that we had a great experience in his Riad. He takes all the time with us for explaininig how it works in the medina and what was important to see. We were received as fiends.
