Located in the heart of the medina of Marrakesh, the Riad Thalge welcomes you in a traditional Moroccan atmosphere, with peace and tranquility. 5 rooms for 10 guests, a patio with a small pool, 3 terraces and 2 living rooms.

The Space

This beautiful Riad is located in the heart of the Medina of Marrakech, 7min away from the place Jemaa el-Fnaa!

Come discover the Moroccan way of life in this antic house, completely renovated and redecorated in the last years.

The Riad "Dar Thalge" was the home of the favorite dancer of the Pasha of Marrakech in the middle of the twentieth century, in the 50s. Acquired in 2001 by French architect and designer Eric LEGRIS-Pascal, he was then renovated in an architectural style and iconic design, while retaining its original touches, such as the magnificent arches structuring the patio of Indian inspiration.

Dar THALGE offers an oasis of comfort and coolness even during the hottest hours of Marrakech. The Riad has been completely renovated in early 2011, to offer even more comfort, harmony and with the introduction of many touches of warm colors ...

The Patio of 150 m2 has a small pool where you can relax and cool down when blows the hot desert wind... The patio has the advantage of staying cool in the summer and retains heat during winter nights ... During the summer, we live in the patio during the day and spend the evenings on the terraces.

The Riad is available for rent by room or exclusively depending on your preference.
White Room for 2 persons: 50 € / night
Red Room for 2 persons: 70 € / night (with air conditionning)
Master Bedroom for 2 persons: 70 € / night
Family Suite for 4 people: 110 € / night
Riad in exclusivity from 1 to 5 guests at 200€/night
Riad in exclusivity from 6 to 10 guests at 250€/night
Each room or suite is equipped with a bathroom.

Eating at the Riad
The cook Nezah will prepare your breakfast every morning. She's also here to prepare any Moroccan meal you might want, whether for lunch or dinner. The costs then varies depending on the meal selected and the number of guests.

Guest Access

The Riad also has 3 terraces and 2 living rooms in free access as well as a small central pool to cool off on hot summer days.
You can access them at any time of the day and night, as long as you respect the tranquility of the Riad and the other guests.
The sunroof is equipped with sofas to allow you to enjoy the sun.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the Riad where we have our own private room.

This allows us to welcome you when you arrive, to advice you on your trip, what you should see, where you should eat and just help you during your stay.
Moreover we really enjoy meeting new people and making new friendships. We love sharing our knowledge of Marrakesh and our best spots in town.

Our English is not perfect but Mourad and Yassin speak very well and (website hidden) Translate is always here to rescue us in difficult times ;)

Getting around

From the airport or the train station, you can take a cab to get to the Riad. The trip takes around 15minutes.
We HIGHLY recommend that you book the cab through us. Our usual chauffeur knows very well the Riad and the charges a flat fee already negotiated by us. It guarantees a safe and relax arrival at our Riad, the best way to start your stay.

From the Riad, you can reach the main square Jemaa El Fna in under 10 minutes.

Check In
  • Beautiful roomy riad in a quiet part of the Medina. Worked out great for 6 people.

  • Merci à Bruno et Martine pour leur accueil et leur gentillesse. Le riad est très beau, exactement comme sur les photos et toute l'équipe a été très agréable :)

  • This was an absolutely wonderful oasis in Marrakech. I can't say enough about the hospitality of our hosts, Martine and Bruno, and the whole staff. They were the most kind and informative people anyone could wish for. I have to admit that we had some culture shock when we arrived in Marrakesh, but they helped us out in a million ways, answering our questions, making phone calls when my phone wasn't cooperating, offering to walk us to places, and even finding out airline information when there was a glitch in our night-before check-in and I was worried about our flight home. Unfortunately I was stupid enough not to have read that only one room in the riad has air conditioning (the "red room"), and it was over 100 degreesF during our stay. They moved us to the air conditioned room for two of our four nights. Mourad, who does many things in the riad, took us to the markets one day. He is absolutely wonderful and kind. We also ate in the riad several nights and found that the home-cooked meals were better than the food we ate in the local restaurants. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious too -- every morning something new, a piece of orange cake or wonderful pancakes and the freshest orange juice and great coffee. There is truly a homelike atmosphere at this riad. It is also *perfectly* clean and well-maintained and the rooms are beautifully renovated and decorated. The morning we left, they were playing Edith Piaf music and I was already feeling wistful. Maybe some day we'll be back!

  • Superbe Riad, accueil excellent ! Au départ en arrivant à la Médina, on se demande où on arrive, on marche dans des ruelles et on arrive au Riad et là.... On se dit "Ouah, c'est canon" ensuite les équipes sont aux petits soins, le Riad est au top et surtout à deux pas de la place. Idéal pour son calme, pourtant au coeur de Marrakech. Décoration au top, accueil au top... Juste une seul regret, ne pas y être restés plus longtemps...

    June 2014
  • Mourad and Yassin were perfect helpers and hosts, helping with all the little challenges like learning your way through the medina and how to get around and eat. The riad is simple but very beautiful and quite frankly, I wish it was mine.

    June 2014
  • Edouard's Riad is very quiet and peaceful in the middle of the medina. It's a fantastic environment to rest after discovering Marrakech. Also Mourad the manager, he's always available to help you and give you advice. The rooms are very large and quiet, clean and well decorated. I strongly recommend you this Riad!

    Merci pour votre commentaire.

    Cela a été un plaisir pour nous tous de vous recevoir.

    Nous ne pouvons pas inclure les taxes sur le site, sinon, le pourcentage
    d'AirBnb s'appliquerait sur celles-ci.

    Bon retour et peut-être à une autre fois.

  • Our stay was amazing! We were pampered all the way- from Mourad who took care of us in the villa to the cooks (Rashida and Nanjita) who were so welcoming and lovely. Mourad even took us out locally and showed us the best quality souks where the locals go- he even did all the haggling for us!
    The riad itself was fantastic; our rooms were cleaned immaculately every day, breakfast was great and we had the option to have lunch there too.
    The location was rather central so mostly walkable around the Medina.

  • C'è una cosa che le foto di questo bellissimo Riad non potranno mai raccontarvi , sapete cosa ?
    La piacevolissima sensazione di rientrare a "casa" e trovare sempre con un discretissimo sorriso ad accoglierti .
    Il sorriso te lo regalano dal mattino quando ti svegli e incontri le ragazze addette alle camere e la grandissima cuoca che ti prepara delle colazioni e delle cene da 1000 e una tagina ( consigliata vivamente ) , inoltre i due proprietari Martine e Bruno che con il loro "savoir faire" lasciano scorrere il tutto sotto il loro occhio vigile e sempre attenti a cercare di carpire i desideri dei loro ospiti x compiacerli come solo un francese sa fare .
    Capitolo a parte merita il ns super ,grande ,grandissimo Mourad .
    Nostra guida locale , nostri occhi , nostre orecchie , nostre gambe , ha avuto la capacità di farci girare in lungo e in largo tutta Marrakesh e sopratutto la Medina quella vera e poco turistica con un senso di tranquillità e pace senza (website hidden) ha permesso di capire e godere a 360 gradi questo bellissimo popolo e di tutto ciò gli saremmo sempre grati .
    Ultima ma non per importanza ,un buon grado di pulizia si riscontra in tutto il Riad

    Que dire de vous tous.
    Nous avons beaucoup de moments exceptionnels avec nos clients, mais des rencontres avec des gens d'une grandeur d'âme comme la votre ne peut-être que trop rare.
    Votre savoir vivre, votre gentillesse (que ce soit avec notre personnel ou nous même) fait que nous ne sommes pas prêt de vous oublier.
    Nous avons une pensée pour vous tous les jours,avec Martine qui me prépare le café Italien de Patrizia.
    Pour terminer, nous n'écrivons pas un commentaire à des clients, mais à des amis.
    En espérant aller vous voir à Naples.

    Gros bisous de toute l'équipe du Riad.

    Martine et Bruno.

  • WOW! I stayed at the Dar Thalge for 4 nights, 5 of us had the Riad to ourselves and we were blown away with the hospitality!
    We cannot thank Mourad enough for his excellent tours, and his patience with taking 5 girls out shopping! Thank you also to the ladies who cooked and cleaned for us, we sampled breakfast, lunch, and an evening meal, all of them were delicious! Adeel, the driver was also so welcoming, taking us up the mountains for a amazing, memorable tour on one of the days. This place is a perfect retreat in the centre of the hustle and bustle of Old City, it was our first time in Marrakech, and because of how welcome we were made to feel, I would definitely like to revisit, and stay at the Dar Thalge again. We were all so sad to leave.
    **to first time visitors to the city, it is advised to arrange transport with Edouard. It is easy and cheap. Adeel drives you as close as he can to the Riad, then your luggage is transferred onto a wheelbarrow and a gentleman guides you through the tiny streets to the Riad. (We were expecting to be driven up to the front door, clearly we hadn't researched the streets of Marrakech enough)

    Summary: We had the most perfect holiday thanks to everyone from this beautiful Riad.

    Merci à vous.

    Toute l'équipe vous remercie de votre gentillesse.
    Nous avons aimé vos sourires et le plaisir à été pour nous.

  • We just got back from a trip to Marrakech. Our first trip booked through Airbnb in Riad Thalge. I must say that the correspondence before and the service and helpfulness were really great! The owners Bruno and Martine, as well as all the staff were very helpful and really helped us to find our way in busy and chaotic Marrakech. The Ryad is nice and quiet, breakfast is very good, you can have a good glass of wine and if you want they can also make you an authentic dinner which was VERY good!
    The only disadvantage for us were the size of the beds, a bit too small for our size if you know what I mean! The location is good, nearby the Jemaa el Fna square and some good restaurants (Le Foundouk and Pepe Nero!!)
    Yassim, a very friendly staffmember, took us to these places, which was great because of the many streets were you can get lost very easily. They can arrange everything for you, an excursion out of Marrakech , some taxi's whatever you like!
    Our experience with this Ryad Thalge was very good and I can really recommend it to all of you!!

Hello, My name is Edouard. I'm 27 and i love travelling. I've been living in Italy for a while now but i travel every now and then so my apartment is sometimes available. I also "manage" a Riad in Marrakech for Martine and Bruno, who are friends of mine so you might receive a response from them every now and then. You can talk to me in French, English, Italian or Spanish ;) and I (almost) always reply within the next hours. See you soon Edouard
