I had so many queries from friends and family about where I was staying (and I don’t blame you – La Maison is probably my favourite Airbnb find yet)! but I wanted to check with the lovely owner before posting links to her property etc. Thankfully she agreed, and so I’m happy to share this beautiful little oasis with you all! This was my third visit to Marrakech, and although I’ve loved everywhere I’ve stayed previously (click here if you’d like to know where I stayed last summer), I was really on the look out for somewhere right in the heart of the medina. Thankfully Nicole’s property was absolutely perfect – right in the centre of all the hustle and bustle, it’s a little haven of tranquility just a stones throw away from the (organised) chaos of the souks, and exactly what I was after.
This was also the first time I’d ever stayed in a part serviced Airbnb, and oh my god was it wonderful! Our two lovely housekeepers prepared an incredible breakfast for us every morning – Scrambled eggs, beautifully seasoned omlettes, fresly squeezed orange juice, local fruit and Moroccan pancakes being just a few of the dishes we feasted on. They also popped by every evening to light all the tealights and check in on us – Honestly, we felt so spoilt! Hanane and Hajiba were both absolutely lovely, and despite my broken French, went the extra mile to help us out with any queries we had about the local area and even gave Jim haggling advice!
The way she’s decorated and styled her home is just beautiful, and we’ve all come away with so much inspiration for our own living spaces (most ideas revolve around going back to Marrakech for yet more beautiful textiles), and there isn’t one tiny corner of the riad that hasn’t been considered – even the roof terrace was as lovely as the interior! The trip was made even better when on the first day I came downstairs to find the neighbours cat chilling on my bed 😂 Thankfully I managed to get a quick photo before he was swiftly picked and popped back on the terrace. Honestly, I could talk forever about this trip (and if you are planning one too, I’ll be posting a guide of things to do in Marrakech soon, so stay tuned)! For now though I’ll leave you with a few more photos of this breathtaking home, and hope that you all enjoy it as much as we did!
