BEAUTIFUL MEDINA RIAD IN ESSAOUIRA WITH SEA VIEW

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Essaouira - Dar Ettouahen

4 bedrooms, sleeps 2-10, few minutes to beach and town

Dar Ettouahen is a beautiful, elegant, light and airy, newly refurbished riad on a quiet street within the walls of the historic Medina of Essaouira. It is just two minutes walk from the bustling souks, outdoor cafes and candlelit restaurants, and seven minutes from the beach. Cosy enough for two, but well-equipped and spacious enough for a whole family or group of friends, Dar Ettouahen has traditional stone arches, tadelakt (marble-dust walled) bathrooms, tiled floors, high thuya wood ceilings and a open log fireplace. The ground floor is a wonderful spacious open-plan living space, and upstairs there is a cosy salon and four large bedrooms. On the roof are fantastic sea views - there is a large sheltered terrace with plenty of room for eating, drinking and relaxing and a second smaller upper terrace provides the perfect setting for watching the sun set over the waves crashing on the rocks below.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered
  • smoking allowed
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Nice place in the Medina!

We spent two weeks in this lovely place. Just open the door and you are in the middle of the Medina. On the 4 th floor you are far away and you can enjoy the view of the Atlantic sea and (when it is not too windy) relax in the sun. We filled all the beds (8 adults and 1 smaller child) but enough space to have different activities. Kadisha and her daughters made very nice traditional food and big breakfasts on demand. The house owner was very helpful and we felt everybody wanted us to have a pleasant journey and stay. And we had!

beautiful riad

We stayed for 3 nights in Dar Ettouahen with 3 children aged 9, 7 and 2. The house is amazing,and took out breath away when we arrived. As with the previous reviewer, our kids loved the covered seating area on the roof and also used it as a den! The space was more than ample for us, with large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all beautifully decorated.
The house was close to all we needed, food, souks and beach, and although we got lost once, it wasn't difficult to find our way back!
Johan was really helpful, and made the travel arrangements for us to and from Marrakech, which was a brilliant help.
We had a fantastic stay in Dar Ettouahen and will definitely return!

Relaxing days at the riad in Essaouira

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 25-Oct-2010

Our stay at the riad was extremely carefree and relaxing. The house is very clean and well-maintained. There is a first shock for those new to Morocco and its cities as one enters the extremely small alleyway which is the "quiet street" on which the house is located. However, it is very easy to orient oneself in Essaouira and fears about the alley were ungrounded.
The caretakers make sure that you are met upon arrival and taken to the property so as not to lose your way. Madame Khadisha comes to make breakfast and even dinner if you wish to stay in. We only used the breakfast option and enjoyed taking our coffee up to the upper terrace to sit in the morning sun watching the sea. Obviously, you have to have no problem with steps if you want to stay in a Moroccan riad.
The house is extremely quiet, especially at night.
Johan and Clare were very helpful in the reservation stages and always answered our questions promptly. The whole process was amazingly easy and unbureaucratic. Their tips in the documents found in the house are very helpful.
The only criticisms we can think of is that the showers could be better (the mounting for the hand-held showerhead came loose while I was showering). The house mobile phone could also not be used even if we bought a card because it needed a pin number that no one seemed to have. Also there is in fact no TV reception, but we did not need it anyway.
In Essaouira we liked to take long walks on the beach, wander through the souks, visit the harbor, climb on the ramparts. We had a nice dinner at the Patio, had drinks upstairs at Taros and listened to music there, had a great grilled chicken sandwich from one of the stands near the main square.
We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely repeat it on a return visit to Essaouira.

Spacious, beautiful property centrally located

We had 5 nights in Dar Ettouahen with our 4 children aged 14, 10, 8 and 3. The house is stunning, from the fountain in the living room to the roof terrace. The children loved the covered seating area on the roof and used it as a den. The bedrooms were all large, airy and tastefully decorated, and I loved all the traditional Moroccan lights and fabrics everywhere. The house was cleaned daily by the housekeeper who worked tirelessly to make sure everything was lovely for us. There were a lot of stairs but even our 3 year-old found them easy enough to negotiate.
Although the house is tucked away in a little alleyway it was only 2 minutes' walk from the hustle and bustle of the town, with lovely shops and places to eat nearby. If you don't fancy going out to eat, the housekeeper Khadisha cooks amazing meals and breakfasts too - we felt well and truly spoilt!
We had a truly wonderful stay in Dar Ettouahen and would love to go back sometime!

Great holiday

This was just such a great house, with plenty of room and a lovely character. From the bottom to the top. Every inch of it. We couldn't have asked for anything better than that. Well, we could, but we surely didn't need to.

Essaouira is a small historic fishing port on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, renowned for its laid-back and friendly atmosphere, souks stuffed full of local art and craft work as well as local produce, its long sandy beach and its well-preserved old walled Medina, named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The weather is temperate and warm year-round and it is an attractive spot for windsurfing. The old Medina ramparts are a great place to watch the waves crashing onto the rocks as the sun goes down over the ‘Ile de Mogador’, a group of tiny islands which offer sanctuary to Eleanora’s falcons. Inside the Medina, you'll find numerous cafes and patisseries, selling strong coffee, Moroccan mint tea and freshly squeezed orange juice. Evenings are happily wiled away in one of many restaurants, steeped in atmosphere and warmth, which serve traditional Moroccan fare: tagines, couscous and Moroccan and French wine.

Other Activities: camel-trekking, kite-surfing, kayak, quad-biking, hamams
