Situated in Quartier Riad Laarous, just ten minutes walk north of Djemaa el Fna, in the very heart of the World Heritage medina of Marrakech, Maison Africa is a haven of peace and quiet for guests seeking a truly private retreat from the melee of bustling souks. Tastefully enhanced with several stylish features including a courtyard plunge pool for summer cooling and roaring log fires for winter warming, the riad has three very spacious en-suite bedrooms, a rooftop tented room and a large salon/living room. Ideal for one, to four couples, large family groups or as a luxurious honeymoon retreat, Riad Arabia comfortably accommodates 8, but can sleep up to 12 guests. For those keen to dine Moroccan-style, a well-equipped kitchen is stocked with a range of spices from the nearby souk, and a selection of Moroccan recipes. A choice of fine restaurants and cafes are only a few steps away. The views from the private roof terrace are magnificent with the trees and public gardens of Sidi Bouamer to the north and, in winter, the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas to the south. Relax under the shade of a Berber tent or savour a sundowner from the rooftop bar.More
