RIAD LE JARDIN SECRET
RIAD LE JARDIN SECRET//MARAKECH
We love Morocco. We love its lively atmosphere and the unrivalled beauty of the Moroccan sun. In search of a more authentic life, we naturally turned to Marrakesh (the "Red City"). The name itself conjures up feelings of a whole new world just waiting to be discovered. We've found our paradise here in this inspiring city.
After months of searching and visiting properties hidden in the maze of roads that criss-cross through the old part of the city, we finally found a luxurious house that seamlessly blends Morocco's unique architectural and decorative expression. The zellige tiling and stucco complement one another superbly to give the place (as if by magic) the feel of a Moorish palace – a cosy and timeless palace, straight out of theArabian Nights.
We would like to share this one-of-a-kind experience with you. Come visit our "secret garden" and enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay in an idyllic setting.
FOOD ADRES :Le Jardin ! If you already have your ways in the Medina, you will certainly know the Café des Épices and the Terrasse des Épices, two delightful spots, perfect for a break on shopping wanderings in the souk. Now you should add « Le Jardin » to your notebook, the new place in the Medina by Kamal Laftimi. Le Jardin is a large courtyard enclosed in a 17th-century mansion, two steps away from the Terrasse des Épices and on the cross roads between Dar el Bacha and Riad Laârouss. Kamal Laftimi and interior designer Anne Favier have reinvented this very beautiful house in the Sidi Abdelaziz quarter. They found it in ruin, and renovated it in tones of green, adding lots of plants, trees and water features, into a small oasis…A cool 1960s décor imagined in harmony with all the Moroccan crafts, creates a very contemporary feel. In this shaded garden we can eat, we can have a snack, or when night falls we can watch arthouse movies in black and white in open air. Le Jardin, a place of culture but also of party, can be privatised for spécial évents. Salads, organic food and delicious sweetmeats can be enjoyed from 9am until 11pm.
