Marrakech: interesting people, designers, craftsmens and more...

Dar Mo’Da – the mascot. Charlie, the parrot rules over the riad.

Dar Mo’Da – the downstairs pool. The Dar Mo’Da is a private house available for rental for a family or a group of people. It can sleep eight to ten people. It is centrally located in the Medina or old city on the rue el Mouassine, near the Dar el Bacha Royal Palace. The house comes with a permanent staff and the guardian also is an excellent masseur. Besides the two pools there is a hamman, it is fully air conditioned, it has satellite TV and wifi.

Dar Mo’Da – Elena Masera and Susan Simon. Elena Masera and Susan Simon rest by the downstairs pool. We have just come back from a working day in the heat of Marrakech. Elena was sent to us by "divine providence", she was one of our invaluable guides and became a friend and we had a lot of fun together. Elena also efficiently manages the Dar Mo’Da. Susan and I where in Marrakech to write and photograph a shopping guide to the red city for the American publisher, The Little Bookroom, so look out for it next spring. I highly recommend it, it will be full of fabulous addresses for shopping in Marrakech.

Dar Mo’Da - one of the indoor sitting rooms. One of the sitting rooms on the ground floor. The white decor is so relaxing after a day shopping in the heat of the souks.

Dar Mo’Da – the terrace pool. A detail of the terrace and the pool. There is also an outdoor dinning room on the rooftop and a stunning 360 degree view of Marrakech.
