I'm a fairly savvy and experienced traveller and a total control freak who does tons of research on all the best places to go, see, eat etc. People even jokingly call me "the concierge lady." But it wasn't until I went to THE GORGEOUS Dar Charkia and met Lisa, that I knew I was outmatched. SHE MADE OUR TRIP what...

Thank you very much to Lisa and Michael at Dar Charkia for making our 4 day stay such an excellent experience. The riad is very well maintained and the owners were around every evening when we came back from our day out, which leant itself to a friendly, convivial atmosphere. Interior decor especially stunning, Lisa has done a great job...

Our arrival in Marrakech was a path made smooth by our hosts Michael and Lisa, who provided us with a detailed synopsis covering immigration, currency exchange (currently about 12.3 dirhams to the GBP), airport transfer (150 dirhams), menu choices for our first evening and much more. Athough we are both self-sufficient seasoned travellers, this was very helpful and we arrived...
