We are an Australian-Italian couple who fell in love with Morocco, its people, interesting culture and traditions. Marrakesh is a city with thousands of years of influence; where colors, sounds, sights and smells take on an intensity for your senses.
We are keen travellers ourselves. We enjoy having an authentic experience where we can live as a local and feel this is an opportunity we can share with others via our property. We feel it is a rare enriching opportunity that hotels cannot provide. We provide our guests with an authentic Marrakesh experience living as a local in the Medina.
