Agnès & Philippe-AlexisYour hosts in Marrakech
Maybe you’ve heard this advice from the writer Toni Morrison: “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
Our story of becoming holiday rental owners in Marrakech is something like that. In 2003, we were frequent visitors to Marrakech. As much as we loved the beauty and liveliness of the Red City, the accommodations were lacking.
At that time, Marrakech was becoming a global destination and there weren’t enough places for visitors to sleep. Hotels were always booked during peak season. We had a place in mind where we would love to stay. It would be authentic, with local design and architecture. It would be in the center of everything. And it would provide a warm welcome with one-on-one travel advice and guidance from someone who knows the city well.
But, for us, that place didn’t exist yet in Marrakech. So we created it.
Over a decade later, we have a collection of properties in our beloved city of Marrakech.
Most rewarding for us is when our guests from around the world write to tell us how much they enjoyed their stay. We love opening letters and emails with photos and stories from their trips. In fact, we love hosting guests so much we founded the “Community of Marrakech Hosts” for Airbnb hosts in our region. As often as we can, we gather to chat about strategies for improving guest experiences and marketing our properties in Marrakech. At our last meeting, more than 60 people showed up to network and share ideas!
There are no two places more different than where we live—a picturesque village in the South of France—and energetic Marrakech, where we spend our holidays. Perhaps that’s why we love them each so much: they compliment each other!
Our favorite activity when unwinding in Marrakech (there are many!) is to book a whole spa with a hammam, just for us (my wife Agnés and I). It’s the most serene and luxurious experience in the world.
If you have questions about how to enjoy Marrakech down to the last drop of mint tea, we would love to help. Our goal is your great travel experience. Many of our guests have stayed with us before and returned—a testament to our dedication!
We look forward to hosting you and introducing you to the best of Marrakech. Please contact us for booking and travel information!
