RIAD VILLA EL ARSA | Marrakech Medina

Situated in the Kennaria district of the medina less than 10 minutes’ walk south of the main square and relatively easy to find, Riad Villa El Arsa is a good value, delightful, romantic small riad with a peaceful atmosphere (no children under 12 allowed except for whole riad bookings). The decor is stylish without being over-ornate, featuring an original plunge pool, antique doors, pillars and arches, two salons (one with an open fire), and a well-equipped roof terrace. Evening meals or lunch can be prepared to order.
