About this listing
The Olive room opens directly onto the Riad courtyard filled with bird song every morning.
Riad Maizie is about 10 to 12 minutes walking from Jemaa el Fnaa square, which is the hub from which Marrakech sprawls.
The Olive Room opens directly out onto the courtyard, with its fountains, orange trees and dawn and twilight birdsong. It is furnished with a double bed. The room has a polished green tadelakt wall with an incised pattern, and a baroque set of beside shelves. The bathroom has a tadelakt shower.
It is one of five rooms in a peaceful Riad featured in London's Evening Standard. The house is a heavenly retreat after the kaleidoscopic chaos of the souks, just five minutes from the nearest taxi and twelve minutes from Djemaa el Fna.
We have internet access.
There is a large suntrap roof garden with a view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains - the perfect place for breakfast in the sun, or for dining beneath the stars, followed by a spot of relaxation lounging on banquettes amid the heady scent of flowers. There is also a trio of cool roosts in the courtyard under a canopy of orange trees.
The riad is a welcoming and friendly place to stay with a bunch of friends. Make it your HQ and explore the mountains, desert, or the vast golden beaches of Essaouira. Or lose yourself in the souks, a beady shopper's paradise selling everything from Berber jewellery to shining brass and copper hand-basins. Or make like a sybarite, and go for total relaxation with an Argan oil massage at the riad
Will, the manager of Riad Maizie is happy to cook great real food using fresh local ingredients, including delectable vegetarian dishes, which can be hard to come by in Marrakech.
