Luxury, calm and conviviality

Nicely described in Figaro Madame (*) as “a lovers’ bower”, and listed in 2005 as one of the very finest residences in the Marrakech medina, Riad Monceau is a true gem of Hispano-Moorish architecture, set in a quiet little side-street just a few steps away from the giddy bustle of Jemaa
el Fna.

Dating from the 18th century, but refurbished throughout in 2002 and transformed into an elegant guesthouse, the ‘Monceau’ is a rare delight, combining the character and charm of an authentic riad with all the creature comforts expected of modern design – a haven of peace just a stone’s throw from the city’s main tourist sights and shopping areas.

Owned by the French artist Isabelle Aubry, a number of whose major canvas embroideries are
on exhibit within its walls, the riad offers the warmth and conviviality of a private house subtly underscored with top-quality hotel service.

You will be enchanted by the refreshing cool and dazzling luminosity of the Andalusian patio, paved with Carrare marble and boasting a fine swimming pool inlaid with traditional mosaic, by the spacious sun-drenched terraces with views of the Koutoubia and the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas, and by the intimate atmosphere of the restaurant, where you can savour the very finest in Moroccan cuisine.
