RIAD SAMSARA | Marrakech Medina

Set in the north-west of the Medina 20 minutes' walk from the main square, Riad Samsara is a very beautifully restored, traditional small riad that has an unusually attractive courtyard adorned with lovely tiles, woodwork, plasterwork, fountains and plants and 2 spacious adjoining salons. It is ethically-run by the charismatic Swiss owner who has adopted Morocco as her home (as well as adopting a number of animals and Moroccans) and has good views from the roof terrace. Moroccan food is available on request as an evening meal or lunch.
