The house is towards the eastern edge of the medina, not far from Place de Moukef, in the quartier Dabachi - a predominantly residential area.
There are two double bedrooms and three suites. All have bathrooms, heating, air conditioning and fireplaces. Cream and ochre tadelakt dominate the colour scheme, and attention to detail is the order of the day, for example with monogrammed towels and bathrobes, fresh flowers and incense.
There’s a cosy winter salon on the ground floor, with comfortable seating, a big fireplace, ipod speakers and TV projector screen; a b’hou (recessed seating area opening onto the courtyard) and a range of seating areas on the roof terrace.
Eating and drinking
A top quality breakfast including some of the best Moroccan pancakes you’ll find in town; delicious dinners are also available (order in the morning for the same evening).
Small Jacuzzi and hammam on the roof; massages and other treatments can be arranged.
Sebastien has excellent English, and he and his wife Sarah do an excellent job of running the place and keeping everyone happy. Sebastien is also knowledgeable about places to eat, drink and party around Marrakech; he has worked as creative director for the Bab Hotel and is an occasional DJ.
