Years ago I had an unforgettable holiday in Marrakech, Morocco. I would love to go back for a family holiday and Riad Jardin Secret is definitely on my list of places to stay. This small (only 7 rooms) authentic, creative and timeless riad is located in the heart of the Marrakech medina. It got its second life thanks to Cyrielle and Julien, a creative duo from Paris who spent over 10 years working in the high trenches of the fashion industry. In search of a more authentic life, the two Morocco-aficionados moved to Marrakech, where after months of research and visits through the maze that is the Marrakech medina, they found in a discrete passageway, a refuge of peace and inspiration. “We pushed two grand cedar doors that led us to the sumptuous and intimate palace we now call home. Here, organic elements and ornamentations come together in the most authentic expression of Moroccan architecture.
