A beautiful traditionnal riad in the center of the old city

Our house (150 m²) has 3 bedrooms. This is a traditionnal riad (400 years old). It's in a very nice neighborhood close to the beach and the city center, in the middle of the old "medina" with access to all public transportation, shops, restaurants, monuments and museums.

Rabat is a very peacefull city. This is "The Greenest City in Africa". And the cultural capitale of Morocco

The temperature is not too hot in summer because of the Atlantic Ocean. Nearly 28 °C. But the water is really warm :)

You will find all the amazing moroccan handicraft but also restaurants and clubs where you can have a drink. Tradition and modernity everywhere.

Rabat is very central in Morocco : 4hours from Marrakech, 3 hours from Tangiers, 3 hours from Fez, 2 hours from Meknes, 2 hours from the mountains (and the monkeys !), 1 hour and half from Casablanca, one of the biggest and modern city in West Africa, and 20 minutes from beautiful beach resorts.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Rabat - 10 km

Very traditional neighborhood. Even if we are in the capital of the country, you will live an authentic Morrocan experience in the medina. The medina is the old walled city -- the original Rabat. It is made up of alleys and paths; there are very few cars. There is a commercial part with markets and shops for your food and souvenirs. Then there is the residential part, where we live. Along its alleys, there are many riads -- traditional Moroccan homes like ours.

In the "New City", about a 10 minute walk from our home, you can find contemporary shops, markets and supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and bars (yes, Morocco produces its own wine and beer, and they are quite good!). In the restaurants, you have a choice of traditional Moroccan cuisine (tajines, couscous, pastilla, etc.) or more international fare: French, Thai & Vietnamese, Italian, etc. Rabat is a very cosmopolitan city!

Rabat is a very safe and relaxed place, and the cultural capital. Fortunately, it is not a city overrun by tourism. You can shop for handicrafts -- pottery, leather, carpets -- and not feel harassed by salesmen. Rabat is well situated in the country. There are trains and autoroutes to lead to every major city (Marrakech, Tangiers, Fez, Meknes, and Casablanca) all within a few hours by car.

As Rabat is on the Atlantic ocean, there are many beautiful beaches. The principal beach of Rabat is a 5 minute walk from our home. It's practical thanks to its location, but not the most beautiful. There are several lovely beaches within 30 minutes by car or train.
