Company info

My name is Abdellatif Ait Benabdallah, I am the owner of Dar Bensouda and I am a Marrakech & Fes Medina lover. I’ve always had a real admiration for the traditional Moroccan architecture, and I decided to turn this passion into a job. I felt that I had the fine mission to save the Moroccan heritage and I succeeded in restoring more than 200 riads all around the Medina. I kept some of them for myself and I turned them into guesthouses, restaurants and literary cafés. I love the fact of walking around the streets of the Medina and the interaction with the different kinds of people has always been my strength.
