RIAD BUTTERFLY-A MOROCCAN PARADISE IN THE HEART MAGICAL MARRAKECH

Medina House Rental Photos and Description

Guest house ( sleeps up to 11 with 5 luxury double or twin rooms)

We spent more than two years renovating this traditional courtyard home (Riad means garden in arabic). An army of local craftsmen contributed their skills and watching them work there can be no doubt it was a labor of love. The finished property has a fantastic dipping pool on the ground floor and a stunning roof terrace as well as all modern amenities- air conditioning is essential in Marrakech.

You will love the attention to detail. Solar water heating, wood fireplace, flat screen tv's with satellite channels, essential oils burning in the patio, scented plants on the roof terrace, complimentary toiletries, fluffy towels and fine cotton bed lined.

Papillon means butterfly in French and the Hibiscus room is named after a local flower. You will enter this room through an arched doorway in ancient walls more than three feet thick. Once inside with the shutters closed you will be in your own private Moroccan retreat.

We have four other en suite rooms available any of which can be made up as doubles or twins. Renting the whole property is an outstanding option. Contact us for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We decided to do a Riad instead of plush hotel - immerse ourselves more into the Moroccan culture (and save a few quid!). So pleased we did! Everything from initial online booking in the UK to the return taxi to the airport, all were planned perfectly by a lovely bunch of people.

Our first time in Morocco was made totally hassle free, we got personal travel tips before we left, smooth pick up from airport and a lovely meal for our first night at the Riad - which was one of the best we had during our stay! Nothing was too much trouble for Yassine at the Riad, no stress on timings for breakfast or even worrying about locking your room!

We were also given a free mobile phone to call for "help" if we got lost in the Souks!

Great place :o)

Mike and Lucie Wood are both British with a shared love of travel and hospitality. We really understand the requirements of the US visitor having both earned our Masters degrees in the USA (Mike at the University of Pennsylvania and Lucie at University of Nevada Reno). A stay at Riad Papillon will give you a window into the local culture, cuisine and traditions of one of the most hospitable countries in the Arab world.

My wife and I have lived in the UK, France, Nevada and Pennsylvania. We have travelled on five continents and Marrakech is the only place we have ever visited that we could see ourselves coming back to indefinitely. The main Jemma al Fna square in Marrakech is one of the most vibrant places in the world, a visit their is almost like stepping into the pages of the bible. The old town also features ancient monuments some more than a thousand years old, endless shopping in the Souks and world class gastronomy. The Atlas mountains (walking, mountaineering and even skiing) as well as the quaint fishing port of Essaouira are easily accessible in a day trip.

The house is fantastic but what is really special and unique is our outstanding local staff hand picked by Lucie and really motivated to understand and meet the needs of international visitors. Guest are loaned a local pay as you cell phone for the duration of their stay and our team are 911 supporting your every need as you explore the city. Our kitchen shops and cooks each meal to clients requirements, the food is truly delicious, we think the best you will eat in Morocco and given notice we can meet the most complex dietary needs.
