Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Medina - Maison Africa
Popular Homely Medina Riad With Big Suites and Superb Views of Marrakech
Situated in Quartier Riad Laarous, just ten minutes walk north of Djemaa el Fna, in the very heart of the ancient Medina of Marrakech, Maison Africa is an original 18th century traditional Moroccan house. Available exclusively for private holiday rental this beautifully restored, luxurious and highly sought-after Marrakech home retains many original features and is tastefully furnished with rich local fabrics, hand-crafted rugs, pots, metalwork and hand-made furniture.
Oozing with authenticity and atmosphere, the Riad is a haven of peace and quiet for guests seeking a truly private retreat from the me-lee of bustling soaks. Features include a courtyard plunge pool for summer cooling and roaring log fires for winter warming. The Riad has three luxurious en-suite bedrooms, and a large salon/dining room. Ideal for friends, family groups or as a luxurious honeymoon retreat, Maison Africa comfortably accommodates 8, but can sleep up to 10 guests.
Ancient Meets Modern: Maison Africa is a high quality heritage house ideally suited to discerning travellers looking for an authentic and private Moroccan hideaway. Although reflective of the past, we've ensured we haven't ignored the present - so the Riad comes equipped with luxuries such as a laptop computer plus a mobile phone for local calls and satellite TV - all at no extra charge.
Perfect for a small group of friends and ideal as a private villa for families, Maison Africa can only be rented on an exclusive basis, hiring the entire property over your choice of duration. Our house manager is available locally to provide information and to book local guides, excursions and activities.
We have a private Moroccan cook available to prepare tasty traditional 3-course evening meals in-house including tajines, couscous or mixed grills. A travel cot and high chair are available on request. A basket of firewood is also included in the rental price during winter months.
Beautiful Courtyard: An arabesque-style bab ed dar door opens into Maison Africa’s courtyard from a well-lit Medina street to reveal a zelliges tiled fountain and plunge pool, shadowed by an exotic Draa Valley palm tree and a twin-sided three-storey Marrakech abode adorned with numerous Moroccan arches and ornate iron railings. The courtyard is an ideal place for a typical Moroccan breakfast of freshly squeezed juice, coffee, omelet, pancake or croissant serenaded by morning birdsong.

Guestbook comments from the manager
What a lovely riad. After staying in the countryside and in Essaouira this was perfect, better than we hoped for. Of course our children liked the plunge pool after a walk through the Medina.
We will miss the beauty, colours and smells when back in cold and rainy Holland. Maybe we'll return for a third time and will certainly recommend this riad to friends and family.
