9 Homey Hotels
The next best thing to buying a riad in Morocco or a villa in Italy is booking a stay at one of these small properties. More luxurious than a typical bed-and-breakfast and more personal than a conventional hotel, each strives to make its guests feel at home. Attentive staff, and in some cases the owners themselves, arrange insider experiences such as private winetastings. No matter how far you’ve traveled, these places ensure that you’ll never feel homesick.

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.
