Expert review of Dar Attajmil

Great for a pampering weekend

Situated in the prestigious Laksour quarter, around five minutes from the Place Jemaa el Fna, Dar Attajmil is a cosy, well appointed and much-loved four-bedroomed riad run with care and passion by Italian Lucrezia Mutti. Well chosen fixtures and fittings fill this wholesome, light-filled and welcoming home, decorated mainly in natural and spicy tones. Here the emphasis is on looking after body and soul. Good quality food, comfort and body treatments, including an in-house hammam, are the order of the day.

Location: 

In the heart of the medina, a couple of minutes from Bab Laksour, the Place Jemaa el Fna and the Mouassine district; just off Rue Sidi el Yamami.

Bedrooms: 

There are four double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and overlooking the courtyard. All rooms have heating, fans and air conditioning.

Delicious breakfasts, plus lunches and dinners on request, cooked with fresh ingredients delivered daily from a local organic farm – the style of cuisine is Moroccan with an Italian/Mediterranean twist.
