We stayed in Maison Boughdira at the end of a trip which also took in Chefchaouen and Fés and so were happy with the "get away from it all vibe" after an extended period of Medina life. It was recommended to us by the Ryad owner in Fés and we loved it. Essentially it is a French couple's home 9km outside of Marrakesh; there is a suite and a one bedroom on their property which they rent out. We had the suite - living area, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette (not used by us!) with outdoor veranda area where we had breakfast served. Although not the height of luxury, it was very comfortable. There is a pool and a tennis court. They have a myriad of animals including four very friendly dogs ("Bruin", the baby is actually black), horse, donkey etc......and the grounds are planted extensively; lots of Olive groves. The host Michelle was great, so very helpful with any requests we had. The food was fantastic, don't miss the evening meals, so delicious and such great value. Taxis can be organised very easily in the city and they pick you up on request.
This is a little gem. If it's luxury high end Ryad time you're after this masion is not for you. Total relaxation time in a unique setting? This is the place.
