About linda lyons
Hi, I'm Linda & I live between Edinburgh in Scotland & Marrakech, Morocco. My husband & I found our beautiful Marrakesh house in 2007 & spent a lot of time restoring this lovely old building using traditional building materials and the skills and knowledge of local craftsmen. We love Marrakech for the sunshine and the warmth and charm of its people. We always enjoy meeting our guests and sharing our experiences with them. Marrakesh is such an exotic and fascinating destination and is only a few hours flight away from most European cities. I always aim to respond to enquiries quickly. My usual response time is about 2 hours ( allowing for time differences!)
linda lyons purchased this House in 2007
Why linda lyons chose Medina
We wanted to find a house that was in an authentic neighbourhood that was also well located. we searched for many properties and as soon as we saw this house we knew we had found 'the one'! The location was perfect, just off the main souks and very easy to find. There are always plenty of people around and the area always feels very safe. We love the contrast of the hustle and bustle on Derb Dabachi where you can find everything and then you turn the corner and suddenly you are listening to bird song. We like that local families live here and the area is very friendly. we are also part of the neighbourhood community association and we along with our neighbours we all take pride in maintaining and looking after our derb. Local life goes on all around us and you will always pass people with trays on the way to the local oven at the end of our derb.
What makes this House unique
Guests will enjoy an authentic Marrakech experience which only comes by staying in a riad. You become part of the local community and are able to experience a way of life in an ancient medieval medina that has not changed for centuries. The local shops do not cater for tourists but for local people with fruit and vegetable stalls, general stores and local markets. Moroccan people are genuinely warm and hospitable and visitors will be made to feel very welcome.

Great Riad close to everything
We booked the entire riad for 2 nights and couldn’t be happier. The accommodations were lovely and the location perfect. Linda and her team arranged transportation for us and provide delicious meals at great prices. They even made a birthday cake for my youngest son. We did have a chilly first night because we didn’t realize the air conditioners also worked as heaters. I would definitely recommend staying here — especially for large groups that want space to themselves. The terrace is beautiful and the dining area big enough for all. Thanks Linda!
Thank you very much for your lovely review. It was our pleasure to host your group and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We would be very pleased to welcome you all back on your next visit to Marrakech.
very best wishes from
the Team at Riad Linda
Beau Riad confortable avec un personnel accueillant
On adore :
La toiture terrasse avec la tente berbère.
Les chambres bien équipées.
Le personnel aimable à disposition.
Le linge de lit et de toilette changé régulièrement.
Le copieux petit déjeuner inclus.
La température ambiante.
On déplore :
Certains éléments de la cuisine pas très entretenus.
Connexion wifi très aléatoire.
Certains éléments (coussins et banquettes) de la salle à manger et de la terrasse qui mériteraient d’être rafraîchis.
Les portes de chambres bruyantes.
Le prix des repas plus élevé que dans les restaurants.
Thank you for your lovely review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you also for your comments and these issues are being addressed in our maintenance programme.
Nous avons passé une semaine à 15 dans ce Riad idéalement situé.
A proximité de toutes commodités tout en étant au calme , on a pu faire l’essentiel de Marrakech à pieds : tannerie , jardins Majorelle, centre artisanal , souks , hammam avec massages ,restos , place Jemaa el Fna,..,
Merci à Rachid , Wadii , Ibtissam et Djamila pour leur accueil , leur gentillesse, l’entretien du Riad . Ils ont contribué à la réussite de notre séjour. Nous avons passé des moments inoubliables marquant ce début d’année 2019.
Tous les jours les chambres sont faites et les serviettes de toilette changées.
Un grand merci aussi à la propriétaire qui a répondu très rapidement à toutes mes questions concernant l’organisation de ce séjour à 15 !!
En résumé , très bon rapport qualité prix pour un réveillon entre amis
Thank you very much for the great review. It was our pleasure to look after you and we are delighted that you and your friends all enjoyed your recent stay with us.
Riad Linda is ideally located in a quiet residential derb just off Derb Dabachi, five minutes’ walk from Djemma el Fna and the souks.There are wonderful markets to explore and well as all the sights sounds and sights to be seen on the big square Jemma el Fna home to orange juice sellers, singers, dancers, acrobats , henna artists and amazing street food. The beautiful Bahia and El Badi Palaces are only a short short stroll away. Be sure to look out for the storks nesting on the roof above the ruined palaces. Make sure you also visit the Ben Youssef Medersa and the beautiful Museum of Marrakech. There are many lovely cafes and restaurants to stop at and relax when you are walking about. 2 of my favourite places are the Cafe des Espices and Nomad.
All areas of the Medina are easily reached on foot and the Jardin Marjorelle, shops and restaurants of modern Marrakech are only a short taxi ride away.
If you are in Marrakech for a few days I would also recommend a visit to the nearby Atlas Mountains or a visit to the lovely Ourika Valley . Our manager would be very pleased to arrange this for you.
