Dar Zette is a house in the heart of the bustling medina, yet once inside the house, the atmosphere is one of complete calm and tranquility with the added advantage of a large pretty courtyard complete with fountain. Perfectly situated for the busy 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. .

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... more

After the heat and bustle of Marrakech, it was a relief to arrive at Dar Zette. A rooftop for sunlovers but wonderfully cool shade and a refreshing breeze on the balcony and in the comfortable rooms so all we needed for a relaxing week. Lots of places to eat out within the colourful medina and loads of bargains in the... more
