Though we arrived at night, being dumped by our taxi driver nowhere near the riad, as he was keen to go on his own holiday, getting lost in the alleyways and being led to the riad by local boys who asked for €20 for the privilege, once the door to Riad Samsara was opened - we were soothed and led into a beautiful candlelit courtyard and given mint tea to relax. Jacqueline, the owner, made us feel so at home and Milouda the housekeeper showed us to our beautiful room - the Jacaranda. So sumptuously decorated with fine rugs, cushions and a beautiful brass bed! We were in such a daze that Milouda walked us to a local, cheap grill to have our dinner - but we were so keen to get back and enjoy the Riad than stay out for a lot longer!! So we ordered a bottle of wine when we got back and enjoyed it in the courtyard and then on the rooftop terrace. The breakfast in the morning was delicious with pastries and fresh fruit. The riad is in a great spot to go visit the Marjorelle gardens, and once we returned, Jacqueline let us rest and brought out mint tea, cake and biscuits for us! Such great hospitality and she showed us the photos of all the local craftsmen who had helped rebuild this amazing riad. A real gem - it only has three rooms so you're guaranteed some respite from the craziness of the medina!
