This charming traditional riad with full title deeds is a short walk from the iconic main square in the heart of Marrakech Medina. There are 2 ensuite bedrooms, cool courtyard and sunny roof-terrace. Currently the owners’ second home that they also rent out via Air BnB and make an impressive return.
With an 80m2 footprint, the riad is small, and perfectly formed. The perfect pied-a-terre in the city that offers such an exciting and exotic cultural contrast to life in the UK. The riad is situated in a quiet part of the medina, popular with families and with a good community. The local shops are close by for milk and fresh bread and there is a fantastic pancake maker at the end of the street if you want to pop out for take-away breakfast pancakes to enjoy back on the roof terrace with freshly squeezed orange juice.
The main souks are an easy short walk away through the medina alleyways and the smaller, less touristy souks are closer. Here there are some fantastic new french cafe/restaurants, La Famille being one of my favourites. There is also a square at the end of the road which means easy access via taxi to and from the riad. The airport is approx 15mins taxi ride door to door.
As with all the traditional riads in the city, you step through the front door from the narrow medina alleyway into a cool, tranquil space of the riad. The entrance hall leads through a reception area (which the current owner uses as an office), onto the cool patio courtyard, a welcome retreat from the heat of the sun.
Leading off from the courtyard is the kitchen, guest WC & storage room and the sitting room which has a fireplace and beautiful tiling. The kitchen would benefit from some modernisation.
On the first floor are the two en suite bedrooms. The coursive between the two is wide enough to arrange as a summer sitting room.
Continue up to the root terrace where the views are of the medina and mountains beyond. From here, in the evening, the sounds from the main square - the dancers’ drums and the snake charmers’ pungis are gentle and evocative. The roof terrace is wide and sunny with plenty of space for a number of sun loungers. There is also a shady Caidal tent area, a welcome retreat during the middle of the day.
The riad is currently a second home for the British owners. When they are not there, they rent it out on Air BnB and earn around €15,000 a year.
This riad would be the perfect bolt hole in the city. Whilst it would benefit from a bit of modernisation work, it is ready to move into straight away and anyone with an eye for interiors could have great fun making the riad their own.
