The place is absolutely beautiful and breath taking!! It’s a gem. It’s very safe and a quiet heaven in the middle of the Médina. It’s super private and huge. We would definitely come again. The architectural details are stunning. Even nicer than the photos.

I live in London and the historic house in Marrakech is my holiday home. I love Marrakech and feel very lucky to own one of its historic houses.
