Words can't describe the hospitality and gracious accommodations we experienced. Sabah treated us as family and added tremendous wealth to our experience! Morning breakfasts were heavenly, and the tagine she cooked for us was absolutely out-of-this-world. We were also able to meet Françoise, who was extremely helpful and kind. Everyone was very knowledgeable about things to do and places to go. Fayçal was willing to drive us all over the place, and was a very knowledgeable host.
The riad was perfect - a sanctuary and incredibly tranquil. The terrace was the perfect place to soak up the cacaphony of the souks below, and the cozy living room warmed us in the evenings. The location was ideal, and the neighborhood was enchanting. I literally can't have imagined staying in any other area - I cried when we left!
All in all, it was the experience of a lifetime, and Riad Dar Ahwach was an integral part of that experience. (c: Thank you again for the heartfelt hospitality! We can't wait to come back!
Francoise has a beautiful place in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week at Dar Ahwach. We can only agree with the other reviewers; this is a really amazing riad with a very sweet housekeeper. It has a lot of style and charm, and it is extremely cosy and inviting, with everything you need for a short or long stay. We very much enjoyed the location, as it was within walking distance of museums, souq and everything we wanted to see.
Heating and warm water work very well which was nice as mornings and evenings were a bit chilly during our stay in January.
Francoise was very friendly and extremely easy to communicate with and provided useful recommendations for café and restaurants before our stay.
Sabah is absolutely wonderful. She took great care of us during our stay, made lovely breakfast for us everyday. And she cooked two delicious dinners for us. The pastilla was sooo good and the lamb tagine gorgeous (and she even showed me how to cook it). We had some interesting conversations with her about Morocco (she has studied history and geography).
Fayssal is a true gentleman. The pickup at the airport was easy, and we also arranged for him to drive us to the airport for our departure.
Dar Ahwach is highly recommended, and we would love to revisit. Thank you to Sabah and Francoise for a lovely stay!
Une belle expérience à Marrakech! Le Riad est ravissant, décoré avec goût, confortable et propre. Merci à Sabah, Faysal, gardien de nuit pour leur accueil et gentillesse, merci à vous Françoise pour vos mail et recommandations.
This was an absolutely beautiful place to stay. The Riad was nice and secluded and once inside you were transported to a different world. It was beautifully decorated, in an amazing position, had a lovely housekeeper, and was fantastic value, The only issue we did have was with hot water but our host got this resolved after we brought it up. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would definitely come back.
Our stay at Dar Ahwach was just perfect. The Riad is beautiful, just like in the photos. Sabah the housekeeper is such a lovely person who made delicious breakfast. We loved talking to her in the morning and she gave us good recommendations. We highly recommend this Riad. Thank you for having us.
We took a taxi from the Marrakech ONCF train station to Dar el Bacha where the wonderful housekeeper Sabah met us to take us into Francoise's impeccable riad. The place is a very spacious, peaceful & quiet and designed to fully satisfy all senses. True Moroccan elegance, charming details, lots of art and beautiful lighting. Everything is spotlessly clean and in perfect order, just like in the photos. Every room has its own character and the house has many lovely niches to relax in. The roof terrace is priceless! To stay within the Medina is an unforgettable experience and Dar Ahwach is easy enough to find (if you get lost the shopkeepers are very helpful to direct you back home). Sabah prepared our breakfast every morning, made up the room and even did our laundry. On the final night we also enjoyed her cooking, a lovingly made dinner of Moroccan entree salads and a chicken pastilla. Highly recommended, we were overwhelmed! Thank you Francoise and Sabah.
The taxi driver welcomed us in the airport and drove to the house when we met the awesomest housekeeper who made delicious breakfast and advised on many local things. The house is super clean and super spacious for three people. We could only regret not spending so much time there. We could switch on the heating to make our stay super comfortable in the evening. The location is brilliant – you can make yourself get lost in the souk for fun or take the easiest way to the streets around. Fairly short way to the station or supermarket. We’d definitely come back there.
