We arrived early evening for a 4 night stay and we felt as if we were stepping into an oasis of calm. It was peaceful, absolutely beautiful; we don’t think we could have picked a better location or place to stay. Dar Fakir is run by Kirstin who runs it very efficiently and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. Included was breakfast which was always plentiful and delicious. Our room was beautiful as were the others which we sneaked a look at. Also included was our first evening meal served to us on the roof terrace and this was fantastic - one of our better meals during our stay. The location is perfect set behind the main square but once you enter Dar Fakir it is almost silent – a fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle outside. Whilst there we did a cooking morning at Maison MK which was fabulous but as a place to stay it was far too modern for us and prefer the more traditional style of Dar Fakir. I would highly recommend the cooking morning. All in all a great stay and already planning our return visit.

We provide extras such as meet and greet throughout your stay if required by our security guard during the evenings and at night.
