Playing to the Senses in the Medina

This nearly 1,000-year-old mansion has been furnished with pieces made by local craftspeople.

Owner Ina Krug works with a team of experts to arrange everything from a camel safari to a customized shopping trip through the souks.

Each room has its own fragrance, such as saffron or pomegranate.

The rooftop terrace, with views of the Atlas Mountains and the Koutoubia Mosque, is ideal for watching sunsets.

From $200. 212/(0) 613-225- 874. This appeared in the March/April 2013 issue. Photo courtesy of The Great Getaway Medina.
