It's always nice to spot a fellow countryman, and it's even nicer seeing  them adding some added value to the city...
There are plenty of nice and fancy places to stay or spend your money in another way when you are visiting the pink city. Being a Belgian, I thought sharing my favourite Belgian addresses with you in this post. I know there are plenty more of them, and if you happen to be one of them, just drop me a line and get in touch!

5) Riad O
a stylish, riad in the Bab Doukala area.
If you want to feel at home, but with a little Moroccan twist, this is your place.

A real farm just outside Marrakech in the beautiful area of the lake of Lalla Takerkoust, direction of Amizmiz! Animal and kid friendly. It's my perfect day out on a hot hot day. Sun - pool - friendly owners - fantastic food and the best home-made goat cheese in Morocco!

3)Dar Kawa
When you are design minded, book your stay at Valérie Barkowski's Dar Kawa . Valérie is a designer and besides the styling of the riad she runs various creative projects.

The new concept store of the Belgian brand in Marrakech is a must visit! Go there if you want to take the colours of Morocco home with you in timeless pieces that will brighten your wardrobe!

If the Medina of Marrakech is about something, then it is about surprises. Surprising for every new  old door you open, every new riad (typical Medina house) you enter. Refreshing patio's, lush inner gardens, stunning rooms and perspectives, and there for dar Touyir is my number 1 Belgian guesthouse.
But...don't let this stop you on discovering many more beautiful riads in Marrakech.

Meet the owner:
Lets start this new monthly item on the blog with our house in Belgium.
As an architect I grew into the black - white - wood settings. They really add a relaxing vibe to a house and that is what I need. Moving to Morocco got me into a more colorful pattern one step at the time. Deep purple and aubergine velvet, Mustard yellow and golden shades for sofa's cushions. The house I share here with you was our former house in Belgium. It was an old little farm that we always kind of skipped when we were house hunting. Our profession was real Estate and architecture and somehow this house was patiently waiting for us to find it, waiting for us to  turn it into a home, an office and a bed and breakfast
But life sometimes has other plans and so we left the house into the hands of two passionate young people that continue our work, and we, we moved south to sun sea sand. Morocco is our destination where we continue our job on the real estate, architectural and export market of handcrafted items

Meet the home:
Where: Peer - Belgium
What I love:
the black - white - brown setting.
the mix and match of design - Ikea and recycled stuff, and not to forget a lot of self-made bricolage :)
the wood stove that came from our house in Holland.
the cosy winter evenings around the fire.
the summer days working at home with the windows open having the cows out in the surrounding fields.
The seasons that seemed to enter the house by the big windows and the wide open views on the countryside.
