Each suite presents genuine personality and charm, in the comfort of its amenities, the refinement of the house linen and the elegance of its decoration. The bathrooms, all in taddelakt, create a warm and relaxing atmosphere.


There is a pool with a counter-current swimming system and a fountain-basin that welcomes guests during the warmest hours of Marrakech. Their filtered and heated water allows you to enjoy them during every season.

The riad offers the service of a talented cook and a discreet and attentive maid. The riad allows the organization of festive evenings and to set a table for 12 to 16 guests.
The staff welcomes you in French, English or Arabic.
Our Villanovo concierge service or Bouchra, the housekeeper of the riad or Abderrahim, the butler of the riad, will communicate to you the places and sites to discover in Marrakech and the good shopping spots  in the souks or in Gueliz.

Our Guest Reviews

Dar Housnia Recommended by 100% of our customers (9 reviews)
Average rating 9.1/10


Très bon suivi de la conciergerie de Villanovo
Sa grande capacité d'accueil avec 6 chambres et SDB, ce qui nous a permis de passer un séjour avec toute la famille en se sentant "chez nous".
Les deux terrasses et la petite piscine.
L'attention et la gentillesse du personnel, surtout équipe du soir.
Pour un séjour en famille à cette saison, nous pensions trouver des pièces communes (salon, salle à manger) plus grandes.
Ce riad est organisé en plusieurs espaces et est sans doute mieux adapté quand on vient en occupant une seule chambre ou deux. Cette organisation de l'espace permet en effet à plusieurs résidents d'y vivre en même temps sans se déranger.
De l'accueil de l'aéroport par le chauffeur, au moment où nous sommes partis et avons dit au revoir à Bouchra triste de partir, nous avons reçu une hospitalité et une générosité fantastiques de la part de nos hôtes et de tout le personnel du Riad.
Le Riad est situé juste à l'intérieur de la médina et nous avons rapidement trouvé notre chemin dans toutes les ruelles et passages.
Superbe propriété de caractère.
Cadre enchanteur (tout est beau dans Dar Housnia), accueil parfait, tout en gentillesse et professionnalisme, et last but not least, une cuisine savoureuse et raffinée, ont fait de notre séjour un moment inoubliable. Nous recommandons chaleureusement.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Le Riad est confortable et superbement bien situé. Le personnel est d'un dévouement exceptionnel.
Un riad plein de charme au coeur de la médina pour notre premier séjour à Marrakech. Le riad pour 4 amies était parfait avec son salon et sa terrasse privée. Les repas étaient délicieux et le personnel aux petits soins. A conseiller vivement !
We loved the grounds. The riad is gorgeous. The staff was incredible. They were very supportive. The dinner was absolutely delicious.
Lack of communication.
My only gripe on this INCREDIBLE riad is the pillows. I survived anyhow. ; )
Bouchra, the manager, runs the place with a velvet glove. She is organized, tough and nice.
Rashida, our chef as extraordinary. First class.
I could not recommend the place more highly.

Lydia of Villanovo was fantastic.
