About the Owner
Maggie’s passion for Morocco first struck over ten years ago on a visit to Marrakech, “I immediately fell in love with Morocco and knew it was the place for me”. So I found and purchased a riad in the medina and called it ‘Dar Musique’ as my husband is a music composer. I now divide my time between London and Marrakech and love to share the delights of Dar Musique with its guests. Dar Musique has been featured worldwide in Newspapers, Magazines and Books.
Maggie has a BA degree from the University of Sussex in Creativity and the Arts and works freelance as an Advertising TV Producer.
