My treat and treasure, this Riad has been growing and blooming for the past years, putting in by bits and pieces all my love and passion for local craft work and arts, flea markets, washed out colors, rituals and culinary delights, collecting objects and furniture, re-creating and renovating and putting everything together to create a unique spot, which allows an experience away from tourism and vacation “stress" only a few steps from local life, a refuge for me as well as for sharing, with friends and world travelers passing by, design lovers, creatives, foodies and adventurers – an oasis of space and chilling out in the middle of a mingling local area in the ancient medina of Marrakech.
WHERE YOU CAN FIND US:
in love with the eastern part of the medina, which remains the most authentic quarter with little tourism and only few guest houses, this part of the marrakech medina made it the perfect spot to set up this shelter and to experience colorful street markets, surrounded by the real buzzing local everyday life. only a 15-20min walk takes you to the main square DJMA EL FNAA, passing through the colorful labyrinth of the souks.
the total surface of about 280m2 offers a patio with a dip-in and refreshing pool of 4mx2m, living&dining room, open kitchen, chill out balcony on the 1st floor with view into the patio, 3 optional bedrooms, of which each has its own bathroom&WC. for any special room request please leave a note in your booking. the top floor is featuring a big roof terrace for sun bathing and a chimney corner for cozy nights. in hot summer nights we set up a bed under the stars .
the space is listed only on AIRBNB, which in its original purpose offers a platform of private spaces for rent. a lot of people tend to forget this, so here a small reminder, that LA MAISON is a private house and not a fully serviced BED AND BREAKFAST RIAD or GUEST HOUSE. depending on your booking and number of guests you are always having the Riad in privacy, but you might not have all bedrooms available. to make things more comfortable and easy for you though, LA MAISON is being partly serviced, a little bonus in the package ;). our caretaker comes every day from 8.00-13.00 to make breakfast at whatever time you wish, sweeps around the main areas and supplies you with everything you need, just ask her whatever seems to be missing or to be replaced.
bed sheets and towels are supplied as well as a generous breakfast.
a pick-up from the airport or local station can be organized. We are collaborating with several trustworthy shuttle companies, our drivers are reliable, on time and know the location of the house. the shuttle will take you to the closest possible drop-off point depending on your arrival time, from where we can arrange a luggage carrier to guide you the last meters to LA MAISON. the transport charge is between 150-250,- dirhams for a one way airport shuttle.
PHOTOS & PHOTO SHOOTING in La Maison
You are most welcome to take photos around the riad to document your stay and to keep for your own pleasure and posterity. We are more than happy for you to do this.
However, in case you do intend to use our location for commercial photo shoots, photographing merchandise, fashion, portraits or other set-ups for commercial use which may be appearing in social media, or on webcites, or in magazines or any other publication, kindly please mention this in your inquiry.
A booking via airbnb entitels you to sleep and stay in our nest, photo shoots will be invoiced seperately based on a common agreement and depending on your request. Please note you cannot change the decor of our property or inject your own products for the pupose of styling a shoot. Disregard of our ground rules, photo shoots for commercial purposes and without our prior agreement, and commercial self-promoting on any kind of social media, will be considered a contravention of our house rules.
