We have a very little, charming house, but some of our friends have more wonderful ones.
For example, it would be lovely to have banana trees in the courtyard and a little pool to dip into on hot days.
The fruit trees mean the house is a real 'riad'.
An old, painted ceiling and some antiques would be lovely too.........
and lots of chairs to sit on in the courtyard.......
Some of our friends just live in the houses themselves, part or all of the year, and some have paying guests when they are not using all the rooms themselves.
Pretty nice to stay in a real home rather than The Holiday Inn or something generic.
The bedrooms are all on the second floor and look out onto the interior courtyard.
At our friends Susie and David's riad you can lounge on the roof and relax in the sun.
