After weeks of searching for the perfect riad based in the Medina, I came across Dar Seven. It was a present to my mother to celebrate her 60th birthday and it ticked all the boxes for our family of four. Unlike other riads which go down the route of bright garish colours and in some cases ruin the traditional feel, Dar Seven has been very tastefully renovated and retained all its authentic charm. My brother and I stayed in the Brown room with the two twin beds and my parents in the Loggia Suite. We then had the benefit of the loggia connecting the two rooms, which was a lovely spot for the delicious breakfast
Hidden behind a door, nestled in the back streets of the North Medina, Dar Seven is in the perfect location. On arrival we were greeted by Rachid, and our luggage was wheeled through the narrowing streets. After a long journey (via Casblanca due to storms over Marrakech), the haven that greeted us was such a treat and we felt at home immediately. After a lovely home cooked meal and surprisingly good Moroccan wine, we retreated to our beautiful rooms.
Over the course of the three days we spent in Marrakech, Dar Seven was a home, not a hotel. We were welcomed every time we returned from our excursions hot and exhausted, with mint tea and the smiling staff. The lovely Valeria was charming and gave us some Moroccan olive oil as we left. As a family we have decided that this is not our last visit to both Marrakech and Dar Seven, we are already planning the next trip. It is very tempting to keep this magical place secret, but I will be recommending to everyone. It is heaven!
