1- The main rule is to treat the people working in the house with the consideration and respect they deserve for working hard to make your stay pleasant.
2- Any meal taken in the house is the responsibility of the cook, meaning that travellers do not have access to the kitchen for cooking. Breakfast, lunches and dinners are optional and have to be paid directly to the staff. The cost of breakfast is 4,5 euros per person. Lunch and dinner cost 15 euros per person and per meal.
3- To prevent any problem related to the payment of meals, they have to be paid for in advance, the very same day for lunch and dinner, the day before for breakfast. Sorry if it sounds harsh, but that is the result of experience.

Welcome to my listing. I am a 45 year old US educated dual citizen of France and Spain. I work in international development, which entails a fair share of travel in Northern and sub-saharan Africa. I went to Marrakesh a few years ago and fell in love with the place, to the extent that I bought this house in the medina (old town). The house is rather nice, but what I actually like the most about it is that it is incredibly peaceful. Like all traditional houses in the medina, it is designed to shelter its dwellers from the outside world, providing them with a very serene environment. The mild weather enables you to basically live in the patio, enjoying the opening onto the sky and the soothing noise of the water in the fountain. When you feel as if you were getting a little too much estranged from the real world, you just have to leave the house, walk a minute or so, and let yourself be overwhelmed by the bursting activity of the old town, with plenty of people on the move and a fascinating array of smells, colors, noises, shades and lights.. I am not sure about how much this tells about myself (this is supposedly the "describe yourself" section), but that is what I like to do when I stay in Marrakesh. I do hope that, if you pick this house, you'll be charmed in the same way. In any case, do come to Marrakesh: it is beautiful, laid back and has one of the most beautiful lights I have encountered in my travels. Wherever you decide to stay, I wish you a very pleasant time here.
