Riad Fernachi-The Ancient meets the Nouveau...

It's tuesday, and it's time for me to select another wonderful riad that lies in Marrakech. There are so many houses and riads that are unique, it's amazing. No wonder it captivates and mesmerizes so many artist in the world...
Riad Farnatchi has been created out of five small Riads in the heart of the oldest part of Marrakech. Houses have stood on the site for many centuries and some of our walls go back over 400 years. You could see in all the rooms the marriage of the antique engravings, arches etc to the modern furniture and designs.
They know the most important thing in elegance, which is to keep things simple! Yet, it's got all the Moorish element...something you could copy in your home.
For the Moroccan's, the bathtime is an important ritual of the day. This one is like a Hamman, where the whole bathroom becomes the 'bathtub'. I love spending time in Moroccan baths, imagine floating hundreds of red rose petals in this bathtub with candellights..absolute romance.
I recommend this riad, which blends the old & new, tradition and the western decor beautifully...Hope you have time to stay at this riad when you come by Marrakech.
