Overview

Essaouira House Rental Photos and Description

4 Double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite); sleeps 8

Dar Zette is a beautiful & tranquil house hidden away in the heart of the 18th century medina. Recently restored to combine modern comforts with Moroccan tradition, it has the added advantage of a large pretty courtyard complete with olive tree and fountain. Perfectly situated for the bustling souks selling spices, carpets, jewelled slippers &Thuya wood boxes with cafes and restaurants nearby and the wide sandy beach of Essaouira only a minute away.

Surrounding the open courtyard on two sides, the house offers light and peace. The wide folding doors of the salon allow the ground floor rooms and courtyard to become as one – wonderful by candlelight in the evening. Built on 4 floors, the house allows much privacy for reading and sunbathing. Kilim covered armchairs, hand-painted furniture, old chandeliers and antique rugs throughout, Dar Zette has it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really lovely time. The house is beautiful - we all wanted to stay for longer! The way you have decorated it is gorgeous we loved all the rugs and things - particularly the big buddha lamp. We also loved Essaouira. The weather wasn't great while we were there but we found cosy bolt holes to drink mint tea in etc. we loved Taros and found a really lovely restaurant called 'la cle de voute' where the staff were exceptionally accommodating and warm - when we arrived both our little girls were taken in for a kitchen tour and as we left were both given the hugest hugs. The food was good and the general atmosphere was really cosy and friendly.

We would love to come again some time.

Da Zette is a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much and like to come back soon again. Dar Zette is a quiet and comfortable refugium in the midth of Essaouiras`ancient medina with a window to the sky . A lovely place to relax at the top of the house or at the beach as well as a starting point for all the interesting things Maroccans life presents.

Idyllic home-from-home

  • 5 of 5
we both had a fabulous time at Dar Zette and in Essaouira in general. Foued was super and was so helpful. The Dar is immaculately furnished and is an idyllic oasis to which to retreat and we fell in love with the easy-going charms of the city and the natural warmth and good humour of the Sawiris. Thank you so much - we will definitely be back!

Dar Zette est un beau riad dans la médina d'Essaouira. Très belle déco notamment !
Foued a été très serviable et efficace dès que nous en avions besoin.
Ce riad est à recommander !

Charming house!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our one week stay at Dar Zette. We had a really lovely time. The house is charming - beautifully decorationed, spacious, real home away from home. We enjoyed exploring this magical town, walking around the busy, bustling souks and streets of the Medina, had fun doing the shopping and relaxing at one of many lovely cafes around the Place Moulay el Hasan.
Foued was most helpful and provide us with interesting stories about the Essaouira and surrounding area. Arrival, departure and an excursion out of town were also organised
efficiently by Foued.
Everything was great and we all have enjoyed it very much.

Simply fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed our second stay at Dar Zette. The place is peaceful, beautifully decorated, stunningly spacious and simply magical – after a day in Essaouira you can step off the bustling street into absolute calm either in the courtyard, the living room or one of the terraces.
The people looking after us at Dar Zette were wonderful, too. Foued was extremely helpful and was available whenever we needed him by phone or in person – most importantly he let us in on cultural customs of how to deal with tradesmen. Sadya kept the place lovely and cooked a fabulous tagine with us on our “night in”. The rest of the time we enjoyed the town's varied and exceptional restaurants. Not much more to say really, the best value for money we have experienced yet in Morocco and we will be back!
