Essaouira, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
This little hippy house is very well located being 2 minutes walk to the main square, Place Moulay Hassan.
The house is laid out over 4 floors and cosy enough for a couple yet enough space and privacy if there are 4. The style is very traditional with thick stone walls and original patterned tiles on the floors. It is furnished with a mix of modern 60's pieces plus a few Moroccan artifax thrown in.
You get a feel for the real Essaouira when staying at Dar Emma, there are a handful of Moroccan families living in the small side street, all very friendly and making life a lot more interesting than if staying in a hotel.

Essaouira is an incredibly special place and being at Dar Emma really enhances your stay. It's a gorgeous, stylish house - beautifully laid out over four floors and perfectly located inside the Medina where everything is incredibly close by. What made it particularly special, were the excursions Emma organised for us - a trip with Mohamed to a non-touristy market...

Staying at Emma's place was incredible. It's in a great location, tucked into a little street in the medina. Also, Emma took us around the medina when we arrived and introduced us to the place and to her many friends in town who run local businesses. This turned out to be the most useful hour on our trip--every one of...
