Le Riad Berbere, Sober & stylish…

I have a special love for Moroccan riads. Especially the ones with influences from East and West. …And then I saw this gorgeous riad. Le Riad Berbere has it all. Beautiful authentic details with Scandinavian influences. A lot of whites, greys and neutrals, with some touches of warm Moroccan red. It’s such a serene place. Nothing is too much. Sober and stylish decorated. This kind of places are really a true inspiration for me.

The extra special feature of this riad is the beautiful garden. Imagine that this would be your own garden. A Magnificent patio with banana trees, tangerines trees and olive trees.¬†You can not believe that this riad is in the middle of the old medina of Marrakech. If you’ve ever been in Marrakech then you know that it’s always very busy there. Then suddenly, when you enter the riad, you find yourself in an oasis of tranquility.

This riad was built in the 17th century. It has been authentically renovated by the Belgian architect Quentin Wilbaux.

It’s truly an oasis in the heart of the medina.

Villa Maroc Essaouira a little place under the sun.

I have never been at this charming hotel Villa Maroc in Essaouira. But I think it’s a really charming little hotel. The interior in mixed styles French and Moroccan, simple but elegant. They have also a ”oriental spa”, that sounds really good to me…

Essaouira is a lovely cute place and really worth visiting when you are in Morocco. You can have a walk along the beautiful beach. Also it’s really nice shopping there and you can eat delicious food. For sports enthusiasts, Essaouira is one of the places to be to surf. For now see how simple and gorgious a Moroccan style lounge can be. I really love it.
