Shopping in Marrakech

Shopping in Marrakech

Though it does not seek to compete with large cities such as London or Paris, Marrakech is a city that is still attractive in many ways and it is not uncommon to leave it the arms - and luggage – full of multiple purchases. Of course Morocco has always been famous for its handicrafts but Marrakech has changed a lot within the last few years and, beside the basic local workshops, you can now find here luxury shops, stores and even designer workshops where artists of great talent combine the most contemporary vision and ancestral know-how to produce some really – and unique – interesting pieces. We intend to share with you in this topic some of our favorite places,  in the medina (old quarter), Guéliz (modern city) as well...

Where-to-eat in Marrakech

Where-to-eat in Marrakech

Moroccan gastronomy is very rich - and exciting in many ways - and Restaurant Riad Monceau is proud to be one of the leading ambassadors of this millenary cuisine in Marrakech. However, whatever the qualities of this wonderful food, it can happen of course that after a few days in Morocco, some of our visitors feel the need to take a break in their brand new culinary habits made of tagines, couscous and pastilles ! We believe therefore useful to offer here our guests a selection of good foreign restaurants covering all or most of world cuisines - Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, … enough to travel far beyond the borders of Morocco … without leaving the city...

Marrakech stay

Marrakech stay

Le Riad Monceau has only 7 rooms and therefore it happens very often that we are not able to respond positively to requests for reservations that we receive, especially through the official booking engine available for our customers on this web site. So it seemed useful and appropriate to offer in this section a selection of nice addresses, of quality and standing comparable to the Riad Monceau’s. From our own experience, these hotels are the best boutiques in Marrakech. And as a stay of one week or more can be the opportunity to discover different aspects of this multifaceted country that is Morocco, we’ll also offer you a selection of charming hotels in other cities - Essaouira and Oualidia in particular - to give...
