About cecile LECHESNE
Born in Marrakech, I'm fond of this country and I finally left my job in a French insurance company to open this guest house in the Medina.
cecile LECHESNE purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2006
Why cecile LECHESNE chose Medina
It is a pleasure to share this traditonal and typical house with others guests , and to have occasion to explain them details of this different way of life, culture, religion. It is also a way to meet anothers people, who leave us as friends instead of guests.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Comfortable and cosy, this house will offer you a quiet stay, in an oriental atmosphere. The staff is very kind, discret, and is present day and night. The housekeeper, Laila, is wonderful and a good cooker, she can prepare delicious tagine or couscous. and will help you to organize your stay : information about restaurants, touristic sites, taxis, renting a car, reserving a car with driver for excursion etc... Discovery of traditional hammam, massages, or henne is possible. The house is decorated with traditional hand-made furnitures. Private shower and wc in each room . Moroccan breakfasts and staff are included. The house is very well located, near the main touristic sites.

A great find
Dar Mar’Ouka is well situated in the eastern part of the Medina and close to the main square. It is really well looked after, very Moroccan and perfect for extended families or by the room. We had booked lunch on our arrival and the delicious kofta tagine and salad was a great introduction. Leila, the house keeper, was great at helping us proioritise our limited time and she enjoyed having a laugh with the youth! The nearby Isis hammam was fun. 35 Euro for a wash and massage, or she will arrange for you to go to the even closer public
The roof terrace was a great spot to relax and if you needed a driver Leila can arrange that. Recommend you are met at the airport.
So, a great atmospheric spot and good value, that feels like the real deal. Would recommend.
Thank you, Leila and Cecile, for all your help!
Thank you Jane, for your so kind appeciation

Best imaginable place to stay in the Medina in Marrakesh, outstanding hospitality and cleanliness
Our stay in Marrakesh beat all our expectations largely thanks to the wonderful stay we had at Riad Dar Mar’Ouka. First of all, in the preceding months to our arrival in Marrakesh, the owner, Cecile, was extremely responsive and helpful, giving the best advices and recommandations for what to do in and around Marrakesh during our upcoming stay. Once at the Riad, we enjoyed the outstanding welcome of Leila and her sister who were extremely accommodating and friendly. They prepared for us the most delicious Moroccan meals, to the point that we had all our dinners at “home”. Fabulous breakfasts were included too. The riad is Very clean, decorated with great taste, each spacious room has its own bathroom, the common areas and in particular the dining room were very comfortable and perfect for our family gatherings away from the hussle of busy touristy Marrakech during the Christmas vacation season. We had reserved the whole riad for our extended family group of 9. Not to forget the nicest driver, Abdou, who was always available for us and took us for a memorable day in Ourika Valley. We all enjoyed our stay tremendously and will definitely come back!

We are all of 3 very glad you enjoyed your say at Dar Mar'Ouka and we are delighted you wish to come back . Welcome for all of you and relatives !
I wish you the best . Cecile
Tout nous a ravi: l'emplacement (à 10 mn de la place Djemaa el Fna mais au calme), la décoration, l'aménagement des chambres (literie de très bonne qualité), la variété des petits déjeuners mais le véritable plus tient dans la qualité de l'accueil de Laila et son attention de tous les instants. Grâce à ses bons conseils, sa disponibilité, son sourire nous avons passé une superbe semaine à Marrakech. Merci également à Fatima Zohra.
Si nous devons revenir à Marrakech ce sera certainement pour séjourner au Dar Mar'Ouka.
Encore merci pour tout.
