We are delighted to add this little gem to our portfolio of unusual houses – the perfect place from which to explore the sights, sounds and souks of Marrakech.

Only 20 minutes after landing at Menara Airport, your car will drop you at Bab Lakksour Gate where the house steward will be waiting for you. Riad Maja is a five-minute walk from here (your luggage will be looked after by the house porters).

The riad is situated in the heart of the medina, in the prestigious Mouassine area, down a particularly quiet ‘derb’ or small street. With the gardens of one of the royal palaces backing onto the house and the tops of its palm trees peeking over the walls, this is a particularly peaceful area in an otherwise bustling city.

The house is perfect for exploring the city on foot, with the shops of the souk just a three-minute walk away and the famous Jemaa El Fna square just a few minutes further. Staff are always on hand to help with planning outings, from restaurant reservations to golf, taxis and excursions.

Entirely renovated by its French owners, this traditional riad retains all its old charm but is allied with modern comforts: slick shower rooms, good beds and beautiful linen. The in-house staff include a cook who prepares breakfast (included in the price) with lunch and dinner on request.

Centred around a cool Moroccan courtyard, there are several different seating and dining areas on the ground floor with the bedrooms upstairs.

There is a wonderful roof terrace with seating and further dining areas, sun beds and a plunge pool. Massages can also be arranged, either within the comfort of your room or in the specially appointed massage area.

The perfect base from which to explore the old imperial city of Marrakech.
