A heaven of tranquility in the Medina of Marrakesh. Escape the noise and bustle after a day in the souk and relax in a beautiful and calm riad, renovated and decorated in a typical Moroccan style.

The space

Situated in one of older districts of the medina of Marrakesh, built in a traditional Moroccan style, our Riad is a beautiful private house. The house is within 15 minutes of the world famous Jamma El Fna, a walk taking you through the tortuous and animated streets of the medina. Situated in a popular and lively district, the Riad is a real haven of peace.
The house is composed of a shadowed courtyard with a small refreshing pool, a sitting area and a small table for a romantic meal. A separate dining room, a living room, a kitchen and guest toilets are also on the ground floor. On the first floor you will find three bedrooms sleeping two each. Two have their on-suite showers, one has also a toilette in the on-suite. There is a separate toilette on the first floor as well.

The spacious private terrace is ideal for sunbathing, taking drinks and enjoying the superb climate of Marrakesh.

During your stay you will be attended to by Fatima. She looks after the house, but is not cleaning it daily, only after your stay. She will also change your linen and towels once a weeks if you stay longer than a week. Fatima can help you find your way in the Medina of Marrakesh.

Fatima offers to take care of your meals, if you wish so. She can prepare breakfast at the time suitable to you, and according to your wishes in the dining room, in the patio or on the terrace. Traditional Moroccan breakfast is copious and consists of delights of the Moroccan gastronomy. Fatima also proposes you evening meals composed of a choice of starters, of a typical dish and dessert. Products for the meals are bought fresh very day on the market. Meals are to be booked in advance with Fatima and paid directly to her.

We offer free WIFI in the house. Fatima will give you the access code with pleasure. Please note that WIFI is not always regular in Marrakech and the line can be down sometimes. The best reception is in the dining room.

We can arrange transfers from the airport to the house with one of our trusted drivers. You can pay the transfer costs to him directly.

We allow you to smoke in the house, but only in open spaces and not the bed rooms, living room and dining room.

For the price this Riad is GREAT. I had many good experiences with this place and a few not so good. First: if you are a couple or just woman I do NOT recommend this Riad for you due to location and few specifications. The Riad is located in Medina which is INSIDE the bazaar which means many many annoying people everywhere. As a tourist in this area you stand out big time. Medina is a town that is very religious so many restrictions in this town. Late at night coming back to the house is a MAZE and not safe at all. I am a man with guys I went it was ok for us but for a couple of just woman I dontnot recommend it. If you want anything touristi you need to go to Gileaz it is 15 minutes from Medina. In Medina there are aweful smells and many people begging and actually bothering you non stop. As far as the actual Riad house it is huge very big and nice , Fatima nice lady cooks for you in the mornings your choice of meals for a cheap fee. But she is not a house keeper she downs make make bed or clean in the kitchen after you. The kitchen was full of flys and roaches bugs. The bathrooms and kitchen has NO napkins or shampoo soap. These were very annoying I must say.....I recommend this place for a group of guys basically due to location and lack of the house being pampered for men. All in all the house is beautiful large great price and if you wantBUSY location stay here but don't expect anything fancy or too clean.

Response from Sibylle Sophie:
I am more than surprised about your comments. You seem to ignore that a Medina is the old walled part of a North African town in which natives live with their manners and customs, one of them is selling cooked food which might – indeed – smell. It is insulting and judging saying they are annoying. The restrictions due to their religion is part of their culture and this does not affect the tourists in any way. Instead of being bothered by poor people you will notice that you can find them also in NYC. Morrocco is an emerging country and does not have the same level of life as upper class US. You have rented a Riad, which is my holiday home, which is fully equipped with towels in each bathroom. You did not rent a hotel room in which beds are made every day. This is clearly stated in the description of the riad and I recommend that you read such carefully. You only paid for the use of my wonderful place, not for any hotel service and particularly not for a maid cleaning up after you. Note that you sayed in my house only for 4 nights! During the summertime, having flies around is a normal fact in Marocco and I must say that I have never ever seen any roaching bug in my place in all those years. Neither have any of the guests who stayed in my Riad. I wonder who brought them in? In every bathroom, there are soap dispensers which are to be used both for hand washing as well as for showering. The products I buy are made for both uses – you should have tried them ! Concerning the safety of the Medina, I can onlysay that neither me or my female friends who stay in my Riad or any of the guests (women or couples or youngsters) ever had the slightest bad experience – we all walk home in the middle of the night (sometimes alone) in this safe area where people look after each other ! If you do not want to live in a busy but quiet area, you should not pick a city with a population of over one million for your holidays : there are beautiful spots in the desert waiting for you. Thanks you for staying at our house.

We enjoyed our stay very much at the Riad. Like others have mentioned, the place is very secluded—we had someone walk us and our bags through a maze of alleyways until we reached the riad. It's beautiful inside, equipped with an indoor swimming pool, which was a welcome reprieve during our visit in June. Everything was clean and colorful. The third bedroom did not have air conditioning, so two of us had to sleep downstairs to escape the heat. Overall, I would recommend this Airbnb to Marrakech travelers.

This is just such a beautiful house! My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. It is inside the medina, so the location is wonderful to explore the city. Fatima welcomed us really warmly, and arranged for a guide to take us around Marrakesh the next day. I would recommend staying at this place.

We spent two nights in the Riad Sophora and enjoyed it very much. It is in the heart of the medina, you will most likely not see any other tourists around and the area can be a little scary at night but it surely feels like an authentic experience! The Riad is huge and clean. Little things like bottles of water and coffee were missing and would have been appreciated but overall it was a great experience.

The Riad is amazing to say the least. It is quiet despite the constant activity on the streets nearby and a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The housekeeper Fatima was very amendable and Sibylle was very responsive to any questions we had. Thank you for sharing this living space with us!

I and my daughter are happy to open to you our house in Marrakech. Marrakech will transport you with its flavours, colours, and different life style.
This Riad is my refuge where I can relax, and tank energy. I hope that you will feel the same positive energy in my house.
