The house is wonderful, big, with a lot of sun, silent, lovely. We had breakfast in the terrasse and it was amazing and almost magic. The pool in the main room is very nice. The house is clean and cosy. We suggest to have dinner and beekfast in the house since Fatima is a superb cooker and very welcoming. The house is ok for a family and is inside the medina: everything is at walking distance. Superb choice to visit Marrakech.

We loved staying in the Riad. It really was a haven of peace and quiet in the busy Medina outside. We had a wonderful time walking the streets of the Medina and really felt we were living the Moroccan culture. It was a great location and perfect for our family of 5. Fatima was very attentive and responded to all of our requests in an efficient and friendly manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Riad as a great experience to other families.

We had a lovely short two night stay at Riad Sophora. It is located in Bab Aylen, and although not accessible by car, is just a short walk from the drop off area. It is also a short drive from the main square. The driver, Mustapha was great and even though we didn't get to meet him, he provided us with other drivers who were very knowledgeable and friendly - a special shout out to Hakim who was always on hand and very reliable! The housekeeper, Fatima was amazing and despite the language gap, made a fabulous breakfast spread for us. The Riad itself is exactly like the pictures and very clean and spacious. Sibylle Sophie was really responsive and quick to get back answering any questions and arranging a driver to pick us up from the airport - something I really recommend you do! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Riad Sophora.

Fatima made us feel extremely welcome and we felt at home almost immediately. The arrangement made with sybille for airport transfers went extremely smoothly and our driver mostapha very friendly. We also arranged a visit through him to visit the atlas mountains. His knowledge and connection with the local people invaluable, and would recommend anyone else that they might like to do the same. Overall a wonderful experience.

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.
