Built at the end of the 18th century, it is the historic heart of the city and the main center of activity with the port. Surrounded by a Vauban-style wall, the Medina is protected by fortifications where the European style blends harmoniously with the Arab-Muslim style. The Sqala de la Kasbah is an example accessible and open to the public of these fortifications where the walls are still under attack from the ocean. Inside, the maze of alleys divides the districts and the various souks. Fairly organized despite everything, the souk offers all types of products. Clothing rubs shoulders with spices, necklaces, bracelets and other items follow olives and other fruits and vegetables. There are many restaurants where the fresh fish caught in the morning is cooked for lunch or dinner. Many other typical dishes are also offered and it is good to stop on a terrace, in the refreshing shade of the trees. The Medina was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.
Located at the bend of a quiet alley in the Medina, a few steps from the main car park in the city center, this perfectly decorated Riad will delight its guests.
From the ground floor the tone is set. The warm colors of the wood mingle in soft harmony with the elegance of the materials (patchwork of cement tiles on the floor, waxed concrete, wrought iron, etc.).
The fully equipped kitchen is open to give way to space. Fridge, microwave, 5-burner gas stove, double oven, dishwasher, washer-dryer, Nespresso coffee maker, multi-tasking robot, extractor hood, nothing is missing here to cook (or have someone cook) like at home!
The ground floor also offers a guest toilet, a storage cupboard, a spacious shower room with toilet and a family bedroom with a double bed, a rest area and a mezzanine to accommodate a child.
By taking the all-wooden staircase, access to the living room is just as warm. Here, natural light sets the tone. The nuances are revealed thanks to the wide safety glass cover which offers a perfectly sunny opening of the patio. The advantage of this room is the solid and comfortable hammock which allows you to rest at all hours and enjoy the sun entering during the day or the starry sky in the evening. This first floor also has an office space with a view of the alley (fiber optic wifi), a bedroom with a double bed and an extra bed, and a spacious bathroom with a large bathtub, heated towel rail, large basin and high mirror.
On the upper floor, a new atmosphere welcomes its guests. Here, the sun sets its signature and offers a generous atmosphere.
A 3rd double bedroom and an "inside/outside" style shower room thanks to the outside light form the link through a large bay window with the terrace in bluish hues reflected by the ambient sun. A summer kitchen area is available (with barbecue, water point, storage cupboards). A lounge area and a dining area enhance the whole, and invite you to enjoy sweet gourmet and convivial moments.
Just climb a few more steps to access the solarium. Here, no vis-à-vis, the azure sky is the only witness of the present moment and the eye is lost at leisure between the roofs of the Medina.
A shaded and furnished pergola calls for extended breaks whatever the season, throughout the year.
A true haven of peace, at the center of everything, this Riad is the perfect balance between charm and comfort, calm and activity of life in the Medina. To discover absolutely….
