The reasons are as follows: 1 Location: You can reach any tourist sites in a few minutes by walking without any problem. 2 Breakfast: The two breakfasts we had here were amazing, especially the yogurt! Super yummy! 3 Rooms and facilities:...

My girlfriend and I spend three nights here. The riad is very beautiful and peaceful and is situated a bit outside the hectic medina, which is nice (only 10 minutes walk to the center of the medina). In my opinion, it's too hectic to sleep in the medina. Christian and Isabelle who runs the riad are extremely helpful - we...

A calm and restful riad away from the hustle and bustle of the medina. Isabelle and Christian were kind, helpful and welcoming hosts. The room was spotless with an extremely comfortable bed and good quality bed linen. The large, home-made breakfast set us up for the day. Highly recommended.
