Her thoughtful attention and hospitality was overwhelming and she really felt like family. We miss her already. The accommodation was ample ( we were a party of 9). The facilities were comfortable. The kids loved cooling off in the pool. The whole property was stunning and well maintained. The location was ideal for our family but not as close to the main attractions as it appears on the map. However the number 6 bus will take you from bab ghmat to Jemaa el Fna for 4 dirham. The tok toks are also an experience unto themselves! The convenience shop lives up to it's name not least by being about 10 feet from the front door and was a life saver many times as it's open until late. The owner closes for short periods in the day for prayer. The tour company associated with the riad Azerg tours is a little pricey if you want to visit attractions outside Marrakech. You will need to negotiate, however the trips are worth it. Ourika valley is suitable for families with teenagers who enjoy the challenge of climbing to see the waterfalls. Essouira is a beautiful beach where the camel rides on the sand were enjoyed by all . It's much cooler than Marrakech so remember to take a wrap/ hoodie/ cardie. It's also really windy. The Ouzoud water falls are also worth the 2 and half hour trip especially boat ride at the bottom.

We spent a truly wonderful week here and as the days went by appreciated more and more it's simplicity of build and style. With temperatures reaching 47 degrees the ample tree cover in the garden and the air con in the bedrooms was welcomed. The pool, a fabulous 20x4 metres, was fully utilised throughout. Our hosts, Anne-Clare and Jean Denis, were always on hand to give us advice and help and the wonderful caretaker, Mohammed, magically appeared with the produce of his garden or his Berber dishes. A great holiday and a great experience
