Riads or Maison d'hote
Riad is a house built around a patio garden - in fact, the word 'riad'
correctly refers to the garden rather than to the house. 'Maison
d'hote', on the other hand, is French for 'guest house'. Usually Riads
are rented by the room or often the whole house. Most of them have roof
terraces and some have a plunge pool or Jacuzzis. Almost all offer
en-suite rooms and breakfast is usually included in the room price.
