Out of Africa ( south)

... above hillsides swabbed with speckled grass and thorny bush; a towering soft tangerine dune with sensual lines sculpted by raging desert storms. She is the melodic call of a masked weaver during a streaky pink sunrise; the triumphant yip-yip-yip of a spotted hyena cheering on the night. Africa is horns, trunks, spotted fur, graceful bounders, ruthless carnivores and feathers of a thousand colours. Africa is ...

Cape Town: Feel the rhythm

... up out of the surging swells of the south Atlantic. The air is heavy with swirling marine mist. Fynbos clings to the flanks of the steep slopes. The soundscape is dominated by the thundering rhythmic crash of the surf. Frigid green water washes the sugary white shore. We scamper along the edge of the continent, peering over the dizzying cliffs to the turbulent sea. Smashed Dutch and Portuguese shipwrecks are hidden in the black volcanic reefs below. ...

We woke up frozen and spent the morning on the truck climbing through the mountains. Each time we stopped for a pee stop or to take photo's we would find a random local pop up from nowhere to try to sell us something, i guess this was just trying to prepare us for Marrakech.

On the way Steve took a detour so that we could go and visit one of the oldest Challah’s in Morocco. We had a quick wander round, tried chatting to ...

... was any oncoming traffic. To a local it would have looked very amusing....one man in traditional attire being followed by 8 western girls giggling and running after.

Lunch thank goodness was not a tagine however I feel is still worth a mention. My excitement of not having tagine was slightly dampened when we pulled outside of a shop with a massive barbeque outside and rows of animal carcasses strung up in the non-existent window. We trekked through the carcasses upstairs ...

Marrakech and all our lost mopeds resurfaced!

... not necessary this time of year. We had ceiling fans that kept us comfortable as we slept.

Our first foray into the ‘wilderness’ was done a few hours later. There was no food in the house and we were running on a Croissant from Rome, so we needed to get some food. Out on the street we quickly became terrorized by the routine traffic of the medina. All of those mopeds from America that could not pass their smog tests in the late ‘70s have been ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Sable Chaud Marrakech

    Excellent hotel

    from

    This is a beautiful,small, luxurious hotel. Just pure style , in a relaxed environment and atmosphere. The location is great, inside the medina and easy walking distance into the big square and souks and all the main attractions.

    Great Hospitality

    from

    Thanks to TripAdvisor travelers, we book this "Riad", and all the reviews are true, I was impressed when I saw all the reviews were rated Excellent, and we immediately contacted the hotel.

    Little Paradise

    from

    We have just returned fro this little piece of Paradise. Francoise and her small staff welcome you so warmly that very soon you feel like old friends. You get a guided tour not only by Francoise but also by Babouche, a delightful little dog! Nothing is too much trouble for Francoise and her extended family. From arranging an effortless airport transfer to guiding you through the labrynth of streets or booking you in to a hamam they delite in helping. If you decide to eat at the Riad the food is superb and the service second to none. Breakfast is a feast of fruits and pastries. The Riad itself is absolutely delightful. From the terraced garden to the courtyard and all rooms in between the decor has been thoughfully completed. Francoises's taste is excellent - from the beautiful Morrocan lamps to the little people (Francoise sells these and all profits go to an orphanage) the Riad affords a sense of tranquillity. If you want to know more about the little people then you must visit!! The fact that Francoise is actually welcoming you in to her home makes the difference between perfect and idyllic. We will be back soon.

    A pure and absolute delight !

    from

    After the heat, bustle and excitement of the souqs of Marrakech, walking into Sable Chaud was like entering an oasis of fine hospitality, comfort and calm.

    A fantastic experience

    from

    My wife and I went to Marrakech for the first time and were very fortunate to stay in this magnificent place. It's right in the middle of town (although challenging to find - thankfully they had sent someone to meet us at the airport!), beautifully furnished and Francoise and her staff went beyond the call of duty in looking after us in fine style.

    The breakfasts on the sunny roof terrace were an absolute treat and everything was just about perfect. It was one of three different places we stayed in during our trip around Morocco and was, amazingly, the cheapest but by far the best.

    Enchanting riad

    from

    My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Riad Sable Chaud. We felt welcome from the moment we were picked up on the parking lot outside the walls of the old city of Marrakech. This is very important since it is impossible even for well-seasoned travelers as we are to find your way through the medina.

    Francoise and her team of bright and smiling young Moroccans did everything to make our stay special. The whole riad is a pleasure to look at. Francoise has done a terrific job in decorating what used to be her own house. We were served a nice dinner. A delicious breakfast was served in the courtyard, next to the cage of the family parrot.

    We wished we could have spent a week at the Riad Sable Chaud.

    We highly recommend it.

    Un endroit magique

    from

    Le riad sable chaud est situé en plein coeur de la médina de Marrakech dans un quartier encore très authentique (le marché de Bab doukala ) et peu fréquenté par les touristes.

    Cosy "Hot Sand" Riad!

    Though it was not our first time in a riad of Marrakech, our last May

    Très charmant riad

    from

    Dès notre arrivée à Marrakech nous avons découvert un véritable oasis de calme, de fraicheur et d'élégance en plein centre de la Medina. Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis : thé et petits gateaux; comme si on arrivait chez des amis. Après une visite rapide dans le centre de la ville un délicieux repas nous attendait servi dans une salle joliment décorée. Les chambres sont spacieuses, avec tout ce que l'on pourrait vouloir, et on a vraiment l'impression que la proprietaire qui se prénomme Françoise a choisi méticuleusement chaque objet pour décorer son Riad. Notre seul regret: n'avoir pu y rester plus longtemps, alors si vous désirez vous échapper à Marrakech, n'hésitez pas à réserver le Riad car vous y trouverez élégance, chaleur et discrétion de la part de ses hôtes!!!!!!!

    Spectacular Riad

    from

    We stayed for 3 nights at the Riad Sable Chaud in March 2007. This riad is in the Bab Doukalla area about a 10-15 minute direct walk to the Djemma el Fna square. The owner, Francoise, is a delightful French woman with quite a storied life. She lives in the riad with her dog Babouche and her gray parrot, Jaco (who is quite entertaining). The riad staff is wonderful, though communicating in English was sometimes challenging. The riad can be a bit difficult to find winding through the alley ways, but someone can meet you and walk you to it, plus there are actually signs for this riad off of the main souk. The rooms are well appointed, clean, comfortable, and the showers are hot with great water pressure. We stayed in the Bedouine Suite.
