Normally I wouldn't write such a long review, but... I can't say enough about how amazing our stay was in Marrakech. Françoise's riad is truly spectacular--spacious, clean, and comfortable, with an amazing roof deck and, best of all, a plunge pool for cooling off throughout the day. The riad's location, in the Dar el Bacha section, is central enough to everything in the Medina while also being tucked away from the chaos of the souks. Even though we felt very safe around the riad, a security guard is posted at the entrance of the street at night and walked us to our door. When you stay at Françoise's riad, you get more than a place to sleep. Françoise arranged for us to be picked up from the airport by a private driver named Fayssal, who was waiting for us outside baggage claim. Because cars aren't allowed in parts of the Medina, Fayssal dropped us off at the entrance to Dar el Bacha, where Sabah met us and walked us home. Sabah manages the riad while you're there. She is the kindest, sweetest, most helpful person. She even made us breakfast our first morning. Before scheduling any day tours outside of Marrakech, check with Françoise. We had an expensive day trip planned, but Fayssal, who is also a tour guide, offered to take us for half the price. And we had one of our best days of the trip visiting Ourika and the Atlas Mountains, where another guide, Mustafa, walked us up the mountain. A magical experience. There are many riads available in Marrakech, but Françoise's is really special.

Perfect location- right near the square and the souks but raid area is quiet and peaceful. Fayssal and Souad were wonderful, Fayssal very informative courteous and polite. I already recommended my friend to stay here in October! Thank you, Françoise!

Highly recommended. Sabah has the biggest heart and is so thoughtful in regard to taking care of needs you didn't even articulate! I have chemical allergies and let her know that there was no need to change the bed as I wasn't using the sheets (fragranced with laundry detergent). I come back the next day and she'd gotten new sheets, unwashed in the strong fragrance detergent, because she thought it might be helpful. I was blown away. The house was in a perfect location, quiet and lovely but close to everything. Fayssal was great...young n hip (the teenagers liked him) and very helpful! Will be back!!

The beauty of this riad has no words. Every where you look there are beautiful details of the Moroccan culture. The tiles, rugs, etc are so special. Sabah made us an amazing dinner the first night and took care to show us the riad. We were right in the heart of the medina with easy access to the Souks.

Thank you Tara for your pleasant comment. I am very sensitive to "the place in your hearts"! I have tried to make this house with respect to the moroccan tradition far from from the delusions of pseudo decorators, finding the most representative quality typical objects. I wish you the best.

Three of us stayed here and it could have easily been more. The riad is very large and open, clean and comfortable. We loved the pool and the rooftop terrace was great! Francoise was so helpful in getting us information before our trip. If you're coming to Marrakech I highly recommend using the taxi service that Francoise set us up with. Fayssal was great in helping us navigate Marrakech and ended up taking us to other cities as well. He helped us get the full experience. Overall staying in the riad was a great choice with a nice, quiet location and amazing staff and owners!

Françoise's riad is beautiful! I was with three other friends and its was spacious with amazing decor and a lovely terrace. It is exactly as pictured in the photos and conveniently located for exploring the medina. Faysal the driver who picked us up from the airport was prompt, professional and helpful. Saba the housekeeper was very sweet and welcomed us with tea. I would recommend this place to anyone.
