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.
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.
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.
Attention, il est mal vu dans cette ville traditionnelle de "ramener des filles". En réservant le Riad, vous vous engagez à ne pas avoir de comportement de nature à heurter le personnel ou les habitants du quartier.
Warning, "bringing girls" is really frown upon in this traditionnal city. When you rent the Riad, you agree to behave in a way that won't be chocking for the staff or the neighborhood.
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.
