Dar Mayssane: a riad in the heart of the medina

hot tip classic

How about a bath with rose petals and a four-poster bed in a room straight out of the Arabian Nights overlooking a cool courtyard bursting with flowers?

Have you ever dreamed of owning a place somewhere? It could be here in the medina. Push open the heavy carved wooden door, leave the bustle of the souks behind and enter a house of happiness. Centrally located, this traditional riad (a house with an interior courtyard) has been restored with a feminine touch. Relax with an orangeade in the flower garden. Your hosts immediately start to share the secrets of living indoors in Rabat. Sleeping Beauty, the Concubine, the Sultana, the confidante, the Lover… these are the names of the rooms.

Each is an ode to gentle rest. The white curtains protect you from the outside and create a cocoon in which you forget everything except one thing…the pleasures of the terraces where you can enjoy the view, have a glass of wine, and read a book among the bougainvillea. If desired, the cook can prepare dinner for you. In the morning, after a restorative sleep, the breakfasts are as delicious as they are plentiful.
