You will be staying right in the middle of the Medina, Marrakechs old part of the city, in a Riad. When looking for accommodation, a place to stay in Morocco is called Riad. Riad means garden, and in this context it describes a traditional Moroccan house built around an inner courtyard or garden. Inspired by the traditional Roman villa with its inner atrium, the Riad was developed during the 9th century AD.
Today, the Riad served two main purposes: providing privacy (particularly for women) and protection from the North African heat. The centerpiece of a Riad is its inner courtyard. It usually contains lemon or orange trees and a water feature. The design creates an airflow that serves as a natural air conditioner that works remarkably well, even by todays standards.
A Riads true beauty is on the inside. Every room opens to the richly decorated atrium, giving visitor a truly palatial impression with its carefully ornamented walls and galleries. Carefully restored Arabic calligraphy, mosaics, carpets, cool stone floors and traditional furniture awaits in Riads all over the country, from the big cities to small towns.
Cool and comfortable, beautiful and absolutely quiet though right in the center, the chosen Riad provides you with a suitable environment to relax, unwind, enjoying the sun and a glass of Moroccan tea any time of the day.

While drifting through the Medina, you will discover treasures everywhere in any shape: spices, perfumes, handicrafts, carpets and jewelry. Between all the small shops you will find tiny fruit and vegetable stalls where farmers offer their freshly harvested products; old carriages serving as counters for fresh delicious bread. Everything is surrounded by a bewitching smell. The whole city seems to be enchanted by the drumming and singing, by snake charmers and storytellers. Calm and coolness can only be found once entering the very narrow streets. In Marrakech, it is easy though to feel comfortable and at home despite its strangeness and fascination - in this sea of seething life, bustling action, loud shouts and feverish, everlasting and never ending circle of boiling life. Indeed no other city in the world deserves the name Pearl of the South more than Marrakech.
