Where passionate music, magic potions and the drama of Africa are cooled by the intuitive genius of Arabic culture.

Miranda Innes and her partner were lured into buying a beautiful long-neglected riad in the heart of this pink-walled city. Only after they'd begun their restoration work did they find that nothing in this place of smoke and mirrors was quite what it seemed.
