Lunch is 100dh per head and dinner 150dh excluding wine that can be purchased by arrangement. Children under 10 are gratuit. Meals are served at table on the terrace or in the dining room, and you can discuss the menu with her. Aziza speaks good French and is learning English. Mybarak, the houseman, is on hand to help Aziza with the cleaning and run errands. Aziza will take ladies to the local Hammam - an experience in itself! A local masseuse can be arranged to come to the house.
What to do: Hameed or Abdou who picks you up from the airport, has English and French and a 7 seater people carrier. There is a house mobile phone that is available and phone cards are arranged. This cuts down the cost of local phoning for restaurants etc and Aziza is always available if there is an emergency! Aziza will also arrange trips to the mountains or around the city. Go on the house scooter with Mbarak to stock up on wine! At your own risk. Time out Guide to Marrakech is recommended and I have a list of recommended restaurants and places to see and things to do.
