ROUGE TRAVEL - THE EARLY YEARS…

Cafe de France is the oldest cafe in Place D’Jeema el Fna. Serving a strong, hard-hitting ‘nos-nos’ (half milk, half coffee) guaranteed to live wire the weariest of minds, it is a place to watch the world go by in all the colour, drama and spontaneity of the biggest square in Africa. ‘Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge’, he thought sipping this frankly magical concoction. We had a name.

A few days later, we had a building. An old, slightly dilapidated house in the centre of the ancient medina. A little unloved and a little forgotten.
