Private Riad (Private town house)

The riad is built around a courtyard, on three levels, rising to the terrace with wonderful panoramic views and the Atlas mountains in the distance. The terrace is designed for relaxing. It has sun-beds, a furnished tent (for shade and cool) and a table for breakfast and dinner. Riad Najmati especially welcomes those who want to experience the very largely unspoilt heart of an ancient North African city renowned for its history, music, culture, architecture, vibrant life and welcoming people. From the moment Abdellah meets you at the airport or station he will look after you and make sure your stay is enjoyable. He prepares and serves your breakfast. If requested he will cook dinners from the menu in the riad. The riad has all the facilities and charm you would expect from a faithfully restored building dating back at least 400 years. It is offered on a bed and breakfast basis, with self-catering facilities as well.

Just enjoyed a memorable stay in Marrakesh with my wife to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary. The accommodation at Riad Najmati played no small part in making our stay so memorable. The riad, located very near to the cultural hotspot that is the Jmaah El Fna, was very well laid out and met our needs perfectly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this 'oasis of tranquility' and would stay here again when I re-visit. Thank you Abdellah (resident manager) for all your support and efforts!

Just back from Marrakech, we had a fantastic time, your riad was just stunning. We loved staying in such an original, authentic, quirky place.

We couldn’t get over how quiet and tranquil the riad was when it is so close to the hubbub.

We loved the terrace and spent most of our time there when we were not out and about.

Your other real find, which cannot go unmentioned is Abdellah. He is great manager for the riad.

He met us at the airport, and helped us with our bags; on arriving at the riad he showed us the rooms, made us drinks, carried all the bags upstairs, the showed us a nearby restaurant to get a meal.

He helped orientate us - including where to change money, get a taxi, and the tabac.

The first morning and each subsequent morning he made us a wonderful breakfast on the terrace.

Nothing was too much trouble for him.

Chrissie wanted to look at a fixed price shop to get an idea of prices before attempting the souk, and he kindly walked us all the way to ensure we found it. Later in the week he walked with us to find  the Ben Yousef medrassa.

He gave advice on how much we should pay for taxi fares, water and milk.

Without Abdellah's advice I am certain our holiday would have been more difficult and more expensive. For example, he advised that a taxi to the Majorelle Gardens should be not more than 20 Dirhams, a little different to the 60 that one driver wanted to charge, and indeed we did manage to negotiate the price suggested by Abdellah.

We had 2 evening meals at the riad, cooked by him, one tagine and one barbeque; both meals were lovely.

We were so impressed with Abdellah - he is knowledgeable, polite, friendly, informative, and attentive without being intrusive.

I am finding it difficult to sum up what a marvellous time we all had, but this is my clumsy attempt to let you know what a fantastic time we had, and I feel your beautiful and quite magical riad and your Manager Abdellah were the two biggest factors in making our holiday such a pleasurable experience.

I would hope to be able to visit again. 

Thank you for our stay and of course once again special thanks to Abdellah.

We thoroughly enjoyed our month-long holiday at your homes in Morocco, over Christmas; and in France, for the New Year.

The Riad in Marrakech was fabulous and authentic. Our kids (22, 28 and 29) had no knowledge at all about Marrakesh and couldn’t stop talking about it and the Medina for the first few days. They had all come over from London so the weather (average of 25 degrees most days) was very welcome also.

Abdellah was helpful and unobtrusive at all times (and made me many many pots of mint tea). We included him in everything we could as he got on really well with our kids and was close in age to them.

I was unsure about the Christmas present with him being Muslim, but decided to go with it and hoped for the best.

Our girls always need a Christmas tree and have many varied sorts, but a lemon tree in a pot was a first.

It was great to have the house in France warm for our arrival and it was clean and well presented. The bottle of wine was very much appreciated also. The house was very liveable and the kitchen very useable. We bought produce from the local markets and did some cooking as well as going to the local restaurants which were all good.

The bedroom with the bi-fold doors has a spectacular view. We opened the shutters when we woke then proceeded to enjoy the sunrises while we had breakfast in bed. We only had a couple of foggy mornings and rain on one day (this was December!) The temperatures varied from 6 on the coldest day to an average of 10 to 12 on most days so the weather was really good.

All in all, we both enjoyed our holiday immensely.

Verified Homeowner

Why is Lupain Holiday Rentals the only holiday rental company to verify the ownership of holiday accommodation? Research has shown that not all advertisers are genuine. There have been cases where people have booked holiday accommodation only to find out it does not exist.

This sort of ‘scam’ is hard to comprehend but these days fraudsters are coming up with ever more imaginative ways of obtaining money by deception from innocent people like you. We do not want holidaymakers who book with us to fall victim to this type of scheme. Money is mostly hard earned we know, so taking a holiday is usually a major expense. In addition, we do not want you to remember us for a shattered dream.

Therefore, in order to protect you we have introduced our Owner Verification Scheme. We ask all holiday home advertisers to submit proof that they own the property they are advertising. Only when we are satisfied that an advertiser and their property is genuine do we add our Green Shield to their property advert. Apart from being a deterrent, it also encourages advertisers to make sure they verify their property, giving you peace of mind when you make your booking.

If you want to make a booking look for the Green Shield on the top right of the property advert, if you do not see our Green Shield it may mean we have not yet completed the verification process. We normally complete this process within a few days if no verification is forthcoming the advert is removed.

We take this Owner Verification Scheme very seriously for your protection. If you have any doubts about the validity of an advert or misrepresentation please contact us with your concerns.

Please note, Lupain Holiday Rentals does not verify the advertisement content placed on this website by property owners, nor do we offer any guarantee as to the correctness of the advertising information placed on this website by third parties.
