Marrakech is fabulous by night with many great nearby restaurants and clubs .
We are a 10 minute walk from the main square jemma el fna .The place remains the main square of Marrakesh, used by locals and tourists. During the day it is predominantly occupied by orange juice stalls, water sellers in colourful costumes with traditional leather water-bags and brass cups, and snake charmers who will pose for photographs for tourists.
As the day progresses, the entertainment on offer changes: the snake charmers depart, and late in the day the square becomes more crowded, with Chleuh dancing-boys (it would be against custom for girls to provide such entertainment), story-tellers (telling their tales in Berber or Arabic, to an audience of appreciative locals), magicians, and peddlers of traditional medicines. As darkness falls, the square fills with dozens of food-stalls as the number of people on the square peaks. Its a sight to see and a great experience .
The 300 year old Riad is decorated with typical moroccan decor with loads of style . We can arrange day trips to nearby sites such as essaouria ( a small fishing village , or ourkika ( mountain get away )..
We are easy to find in the medina and you can catch taxis nearby. we are close to all sites well situated in the medina .
