This charming house dates back to the 18th Century, and has been entirely restored accordingly to local traditions, using ancestral techniques, such as tadlakt, lime and bejmat. Today, the Riad has recovered its original authenticity.
The Riad displays 11 bedrooms all named after traditional aromatic herbs used for tea-making. They are distributed around 3 different levels, around the sky lit patio. All the rooms are inspired by Moroccan architecture and design. All different, they each provide a bathroom with bathtub or shower, and private toilets.
Served every morning from 8h30 to 11h00 on the roof terrace, or depending on the weather, in the Moroccan lounge, it is different every day. Varied, well balanced, generous and gourmet, it is a delight for the younger or the adults.
