I do not have a clue how many riads you will find in the Marrakech Medina, but there are always some waiting to change ownership.
Many creative talents have been putting an example, including Bill Willis, Franca Sozzani, The Hermes family, YSL, and recently the persistent rumour that the Bvlgari empire is focussing on Marrakech.
It is a challenge and a passion to transform an old riad into a real paradise.
To give you an impression on the splendor and beauty of these old houses, you can get a glimpse of it at
Mogador Home Resort
I surfed the sites for you and let you have a look into my favourite bedrooms that are currently on the market.
One never knows,you might want to wake up soon in your own riad ...
What is a riad?
is an authentic house in the old town, the Medina, built around a central courtyard.
On the first floor you will find a 4-sided passageway open to the inner garden and in open air, this is the case for the Marrakech architecture. This passageway causes the rooms to recline and thus get less direct sunlight on those sizzling summer days.
The central atrium is usually rich in plants and water.
Water is one of the pillars in Islamic architecture and also one of the vital elements in the very dry and sandy areas.
