Do you know what is riad ? Moroccan Riad ?

Here is a description of riad from Wikipedia :
riad is a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard. The word riad comes from the Arabian term for garden, "ryad". The ancient Roman city of Volubilis provides a reference for the beginnings of riad architecture during the rule of the Idrisid Dynasty. An important design concern was Islamic notions of privacy for women inside residential gardens. The style of these riads has changed over the years, but the basic form is still used in designs today.

When I saw a house with riad (on TV) I knew, this is the thing I want to have in my vacation house (yes, I would like to have more than just one house), so I decide to share riad with you as my new thing on my list of dreams (:

But if you still don't know what Im talking about, here are some pictures of riad I found for you.
