Expert review of Dar Attajmil
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.
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.
There are four double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and overlooking the courtyard. All rooms have heating, fans and air conditioning.
The ground floor courtyard is shaded by banana trees and coconut palms and has comfortable easy chairs, a delightful and cool recessed seating area, and a cosy library. The roof terrace is a haven of peace just minutes from the souks, scattered with cushions, loungers and sofas.
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.
Wi-fi and hammam on site; it’s possible to organise visits from masseuses and beauticians and courses in cookery, Arabic calligraphy and decorative techniques. House parties including traditional music or contemporary DJs are also possible.
Lucrezia has excellent English and is friendly, knowledgeable and utterly charming.
Couples, small family groups, groups of friends. Great if you and some mates want to shop till you drop and/or indulge in some body treatments. Booking the whole riad (8-10 people) is possible.
Prices are exclusive of tourist tax; credit card guarantee to confirm bookings
