Situated in Arset Moulay Moussa, only 5 minutes by foot from Djemaa el Fna, in the centre of Marrakech medina, Dar Africa is a classic Marrakech riad dating back to the 18th century. Available exclusively for private rental this beautifully restored Marrakech home retains many of its original features and is tastefully furnished with rich local fabrics and hand-made furniture. Dar Africa is a small haven of peace and quiet for guests seeking a cosy, and great value, hideaway from the mêlée of the bustling medina.
By renting one of four neighbouring houses which combine to create the larger Riad Africa, guests of Dar Africa have access to the shared facilities of the main riad. Choose to relax around the plunge pool of Riad Africa's palm-filled courtyard; take a nap under the shade of a traditional caidal tent after a morning exploring the medina; or soak up some sunshine on your own private roof garden terrace. Wake up each morning to a delicious Moroccan breakfast. Ideal for groups of friends or larger family groups, Dar Africa can accommodate up to 11 guests.
