“You leave the bustle of the medina behind when you step through the ancient door into this elegant riad. Formed from several mansions, connected by a maze of corridors, handsome rooms and calm courtyards, it houses a fine collection of antiques, ceramics, textiles and paintings, and makes a very special place to stay. Open fireplaces, a small pool and hammam add to the air of stylish simplicity. Staff are attentive and the chef prepares delicious Tajines.”
