    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    Nestling down a quiet alleyway within the walls of the medina, two minutes walk from the bustling souks, outdoor cafes and candlelit restaurants, and just seven minutes from the beach, is Dar Ettouahen, the 'Mill House'. Cosy enough for two, but well-equipped and spacious enough for a whole family or group of friends, Dar Ettouahen is an elegant, light and airy riad, with traditional stone arches, tadelakt (marble-dust walled) bathrooms, tiled floors, high thuya wood ceilings and a open log fireplace. On the roof is a large sheltered terrace with views over the medina, and from a second smaller upper terrace, you can look out to the sea and watch the waves crashing on the rocks below.

    How to get there
    Airport: Marrakech or Agadir: 111.8 mi
    Essaouira is two and a half hours' drive from Marrakech or Agadir with Easyjet, Ryanair, Atlas Blue, Royal Air Maroc, BA etc.

    We have a longstanding relationship with a taxi company who offer a very reliable service at a reasonable cost. They can provide cars of different sizes for up to four (600 dhms), six (1000 dhms) or eight (1200 dhms) passengers (or sometimes twelve, depending on availability).

    It is also possible to get from Marrakech and Agadir to Essaouira by bus; the buses are relatively modern and good quality. The journey from Marrakech takes about three hours. The buses go to and from the train station in Marrakech and just outside the medina in Essaouira. Our caretaker Fouad will meet you from the bus if you arrive that way.

    There is no train station in Essaouira....

We had a great trip to Dar Ettouhan. It is a beautiful house in traditional Moroccan style and is extremely quiet and relaxing despite the noise of the medina. Fouad was very helpful and Kadisha made delicious breakfasts each morning and a couple of tasty dinners for us; she is an excellent cook. The house is perfectly situated within a... more

We loved the house, and the staff were great. Kadisha's cooking was delicious, much better than when we ate out. We asked her to cook most nights we were there. Fouad was great too. He helped us out at the pharmacy when our youngest got ill. The facilities in the house were excellent. The stair gates made our stay worry... more

This is a beautiful riad which has been restored with evident love and attention to detail. The staff are very professional and welcoming and help you settle in what can be a daunting environment if you are unfamiliar with Morocco. It is definitely worth requesting transport from the airport in Marrakech, as this removes any stress about making your way... more
