Il n’y a pas de règle particulière dans la maison à part de profiter de votre séjour en respectant le matériel mis à votre disposition. Cependant, afin d’éviter tout conflit de voisinage, une attitude respectueuse vis-à-vis des habitants du derb est demandée notamment sur le fait que la loi marocaine interdit de faire pénétrer des personnes d’origine marocaine dans les maisons appartenant à des étrangers
There is no specific rule in the house except to enjoy your stay in compliance with the equipment at your disposal. However, in order to avoid conflicts with the neighborhood, we request that you have a respectful attitude towards people living around, especially in regards of the Moroccan law that forbid local people to be invited in houses owned by foreigners
About the Host, Jean Philippe
Originally form Burgundy in France, I'm a professional in software consulting and I happen to be travelling extensively for work that is why my house is often available for you to enjoy !
After a nearly 4 years professional cycle in Morocco, during which I lived in the house, I"m now starting a new chapter in Dublin, Ireland ... not without a hint of sadness as I did enjoy tremendously my time in the Red city.
The bewithing Oriental charm sweeped my feet away. You go from incredibly high standard establishments for a cup of local thé or ancient scotch around the luxurious swimmingpools ... to the counter of a local medina grocery with hanging chickens and wheeled homemade trolleys pulled by donkeys in the matter of a few minutes, the city has a lot to offer, to all tastes and contrasts ! Marrakech is incredibly intoxicating and so peaceful at the same time when you come home to the calmness of the Medina ...
I hope you'll enjoy your stay as much as I enjoyed mine, welcome to my home :)
