Ryad Dyor: Marrakech, Morocco / by Julie Holder

This is the Ryad Dyor, owned by Alberto Cortes Artero. He is an interior designer, a magnificent host, and instant friend. The first thing he said to us when we arrived in Marrakech was welcome, you are safe here. He made us feel at home more than we have ever felt while traveling. His Ryad is beautiful beyond words, and we have already made plans to photograph his homes in Ibiza and Bali. We couldn't feel more blessed to have landed in his home and in his care in the middle of this crazy medina. Our last night in Marrakech could not have felt more right. He made us feel like we haven't just vacationed, but travelled.
