Hi Noel and Fabrice, Thank you so much for such a brilliant stay in your beautiful riad. You and Fabrice were so kind and we really appreciate everything you did for us. Hopefully one day in the future we will be able to visit you again. Good luck with all the renovations. Thanks again and take care, Cameron and Janet Jow
FEEDBACK FROM CLIENTS “NATURELLY MOROCCO” October 2012: “This was by far the best Riad. It was clean, sophisticated, the food was excellent and Noel was a generous and attentive host. He took us back to the square so that we could find our way back and gave us lots of advice. It was perfect for our first few days in Morocco and the roof garden was such a lovely place to chill out after the bustle of the souks. The breakfasts were delicious”. FEEDBACK FROM CLIENTS november 2012: Absolutely fabulous riad. We loved being there and our hosts could not do enough for us all. It felt sumptuous and we would love to visit again.

PATRICE 7 February 2013 – ” Look no further if you want a fabulous place to stay for your time in Marrakech. This city is confusing, dusty, dirty, noisy, and a little nuts and you will need a genuine oasis to return to each day. We spent a week at Villa El Arsa in the Royale room, a huge room by typical standards with high ceilings painted in a colorful traditional Berber motif and a working fireplace! This ryad (or guest house) has four wonderful rooms and has been completely renovated (early 2012) by two super charming French guys, Noel and Fabrice. (English spoken.) While maintaining the authenticity and character of the traditional Morrocan Berber home, they transformed this ryad into a most comfortable, impeccably clean, and lovely place to stay. Modern comforts, elegant traditional Moroccan decor, minutes to everything, peace and calm. You WILL want to have chef Fabrice cook for you there and enjoy eating an elegant three course Moroccan and/or French meal in a special room off the central courtyard by the crackling fireplace, with candlelight, lovely music and privacy. Seriously the best food we ate the entire week there. And sooooo reasonably priced compared to other good places nearby. Breakfasts (fresh fruit, yogurt, breads, pastries, jams, butter, coffee, tea) are lovely in the roof garden. You are two minutes walk to the main square (Djemma el Fna) and entrances to the souks. They give you your own Moroccan cell phone if you get in trouble or lost and need to call them. Great wifi, solid firm (really firm) beds with lots of pillows, lovely bathrooms, slippers, flowers and a host of little touches that make you feel so welcome. If you travel there in warm weather, the cooling plunge pool off the courtyard would be a welcome relief. We were there in February and we noticed room air conditioners but we used the room space heaters in the evenings only cause it only got chilly then and in minutes we were totally comfy.”
19 septembre 2012 The location was excellent and very convenient in the middle of the medina and was just a few winding streets from the main square.The Riad is very clean, stylish and well looked after by the owners and staff. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility in the middle of the bustling old town. I was staying at the Riad with my partner and friend for 5 nights in September 2012 and we shared a 3 bed room which was extremely comfortable.Noel, one of the owners, was always on hand to offer advice, dining and travel tips which was extremely helpful as it was our first time in Marrakech. He also invited us out with his partner and friend on a day trip to an authentic market town and out to the Atlas mountains for a great walk and lunch.I highly recommend the place for people looking for a peaceful, helpful and conveniently located stay.
Thanks to you too girls Lucia, Rowan, Iona and little boy, James! Parents too! Slama Jane and Andrew!… We’ll not forget you!!! Kisses!… Noël and Fabrice – 30 juin 2012 -London, UK Je suis en train de lire ‘L’Art du Voyage’ de l’écrivain philosophe anglais Alain de Bottoa. Je crois que le vrai art du voyage c’est de rester dans un endroit comme la Villa El Arsa et avec des gens comme Fabrice, Noël et Simo! Shukran. Beslama! Teresa Could not think of a more fabulous and welcoming place to stay in Marrakech! Beautiful rooms, lovely food and great hosts! I recommend a dip in the ‘Bain Oriental’ after a stroll in the souks nearby… Will definetely return and recommend to friends. A big thank you!

- Thank you for your warm welcome, fabulous reception, great recommendation and intro to Marrakech. We enjoyed our stay home away from home. Comfortable and peaceful environment. Lovely room… Enjoyed the refreshing swim into the pool after a long days walk to the souks. Riad Villa El Arsa will be recommanded to our friends and family back in London. You are an amazing host! Thank you (merci) ! “Peaceful Oasis” Avis écrit le 5 juin 2012
My girlfriend and I spent three lovely nights at Villa el Arsa and it could not have been a better experience. The rooms are beautifully decorated and thoughtfully supplied with adorable touches like Moroccan cookies at the bedside, two pairs of little white slippers and even a cell phone for your use while in Marrakesh – very helpful in case you find yourself helplessly turned around in the Medina! There is a fantastic roof top terrace with all kinds of nooks for relaxing and reclining chairs for sunbathing – again adorable touches like little sun hats for guests. Breakfast is generally served on the roof top and is, again, lovely. There is even a plunge pool to cool you down after the intense heat of mid day Marrakesh. Most importantly, Fabrice and Noel are very gracious hosts. They give the place a warm and welcoming feel and are always happy to offer a mint tea and to help with anything you might need (from organizing trecks, to onward travel, to finding a drink in the Medina!). We were very sad to leave. We really could not recommend Villa el Arsa more highly or enthusiastically! Séjour du Juin 2012 – voyage en amoureux

Niels -UK Comment to Naturelly Morocco after stay Dear Noel & Fabrice, We have had some lovely comments from our clients who have recently stayed with you at Riad Villa El Arsa and have had a fantastic time. Here are some comments from the ‘N…’ family who stayed with you for 3 nights from 12/04/12 to 15/04/12 and please see their comments below.Thank you. “TOTALLY exceptional – such incredible hospitality and a real interest in ensuring that you saw and experienced Marrakesh as you would wish. Noel and Fabrice should be your no 1 recommendation if they are not already! We also ate in and had one of the best meals that we had in all of Morocco. Niels – We loved our stay at Riad Villa El Arsa, The location, so close to the central square, and yet the Riad itself was peaceful and very beautiful, it was just great. The owners met us at the airport and took us to the hotel on the first night, and I highly recommend that for any first time guests. We would certainly stay there again if we ever could return to Marrakesh 15 Mar 2012 – Anonymous – New Zealand Riad El Arsa is a home from home. During our time here, we have been thoroughly love affair. We feel very spoilt. Hearing the madness of the medina to come here was complete bliss. We will never forget Marrakech and our amazing hosts. Thank you for the warmest welcome and the most confortable stay. See you again!Laura, Rob and Rosie – 25.4.2012 – GB What a great introduction to Marrakesh. Noel, Fabrice and Simo were very welcoming and we were very well looked after. We especially valued all the tips and advice about local attractions and insights into living in Marrakesh. The Riad is well located for everything in the Medina and is only a short walk from the Jmaa el Fnaa, but is located in a quiet Derb away from all the fuss and bustle. Don’t miss out on Simo’s wonderful cooking! Séjour du Avril 2012 – voyage en famille
