Typical Riad in the heart of the Medina of Marrakesh. The rental has a minimum duration of 3 nights.
A caretaker and a cook / cleaning lady are at your disposal full-time.

The space

Riads (word meaning garden in Arabic) and dars (literally houses) are traditional housing in the Moroccan urban areas (medinas). These houses are completely closed from the outside and are arranged around the central patio, on the model of the traditional Arab-Muslim housing. They are often planted with trees and endowed with a fountain. It is the same word which refers to the capital of the Saudi Arabia, Riyadh. Dar el Boumba is an authentic house which respects scrupulously these rules. It adds the indisputable charm of classic Riads to the Andalusian influences of its design.
Dar el Boumba is a large Riad. Its six bedrooms, each with its own bathroom allow twelve people to stay in the greatest comfort. Furthermore, the space offered by the central patio, both lounges and the terrace allows to share pleasant moments of conviviality between the hosts all year long.

Guest access

Two people will dedicate their time to making your stay as pleasant as possible. A Moroccan cook will prepare you typical dishes, and will also maintain the household, replace the towels and sheets whereas a caretaker will discreetly take care of your stay while assuring the maintenance tasks. All you need to do is indulge in your stay, from Moroccan breakfast on the terrace to delicious Tajines which will assure a great change of scene during the dinner. You will have to pay for the ingredients needed for the meals to the cook.

This riad is amazing! Its like living in a fairytale, with such amazing attention to detail. There is plenty of space, and the pool in wonderful after a long day wandering the streets of Marrakech. Location is great, in the Medína. Saida and Mustafa are looking after the place well, they are superfriendly and make the best breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Communication with Philippe was easy and he replied swiftly to all my questions before we arrived. The only improvement in my eyes is that the shuttle company Philippe recommended overcharged for the trip from the bus station, as we found out when going back out after our stay.

This riad is a gem to find in the heart of the medina! The layout of the riad is brilliant the rooms are great and the surrounding area is pretty lively! It's not far from the main square by taxi ride or you could even walk if you can brave the summer heat! Mustapha looks after you well and Saida makes the Most delicious traditional foods. Her food was definitely one of the highlights of the trip for us.

If you really want to get a feel of the Moroccan culture then this is the place for you. The Riad is in the heart of the Madina and is a hidden gem and once your inside you feel you’re a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the Madina. The place itself is maintained to a high standard. Both Saeeda and Mustafa made the stay even more special and took good care of us, always at hand when we needed. There is a supermarket close by and well as cash point machines and the Souk is about a 20min walk. I would definitely recommend this place.

Philippe's riad was beautiful. I stayed there with 5 other friends and it was very spacious. Saida and Mustafa (the housekeepers) were so friendly and helpful. We had breakfast every morning which was convenient and delicious. Like many others have said, the riad is centrally located, however, pay close attention to the location because it can be difficult trying to find your way back. Overall, it was a lovely place to stay.

This riad was more beautiful than we expected. Our hosts were incredibly kind and helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. The food was DELICIOUS - we were absolutely in love with the beef tajine prepared for lunch. Breakfast was also delicious and reasonably priced. The riad was very clean and comfortable. We loved our lovely oasis in chaotic Marrakech. Thank you to our sweet hosts for a wonderful time.

This place is beautiful and clean and in a great location. Philippe recommended a shuttle service from the airport, which was affordable, quick and easy. Saida and Mustafa, the house staff, were absolutely lovely. We never went out to eat--Saida's cooking was too good! It was an incredible experience. Thank you Philippe!

What an amazing house. I think I need 100 years to afford a house like Philippe's place. I was there with other 5 friends. Very specious, safe, and close to the old market (Madeina). literally it 2 mints walking from the market. Strongly suggest take the shuttle that Philippe offer because (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps doesn't work well in old city. I mean It's not accurate. Before I forget at the house there are personal cooker and a guardian 24/7 and I would to thank them a lot. إقامة رائعة وومتعة شكراً آنسة سعيدة ومصطفى على كرم الضيافة والحراسة

J'ai acquis ce Riad il y a quelques années dans le but d'en faire un lieu convivial entre amis ou en famille, j'espère qu'il vous plaira autant qu'à moi d'y passer quelques jours.
