Alastair Sawday’s Special Places to Stay – Morocco

“So much simple beauty. So much space in these unusually wide, high rooms done with love, respect and absolutely no frills. From the crowded streets with their little market and nearby tanneries, stop at the majestic door and prepare to fall in love. The monastic walls, deep-lobed doorways and blue-grey carved woodwork round the perfect little patio say it all: in such peace and grandeur, you can be yourself. The pale background is enlivened by touches of red, pink and mauve and there are some lovely Berber rugs. Gentle bedrooms have one fine piece of furniture each, a carefully-chosen lamp, a walk-in cupboard and a pastel tadelakt bathroom; the wonderful suite extends to a latticed mezzanine; the gorgeous terrace, with its canvas tent draped stylishly over your cushions, is one of the highest in Marrakech. Soft, gentle taste is the hallmark of this house and of the delightful assistants Raja and Nadia.”
