Essaouira, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
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.<BR><BR>

Dar Ettouahen is a large and lovely riad at the end of a short, narrow alley, steps from the scala, the souk, and all the shops and restaurants of the medina. Our family of 7 adults had plenty of space to sleep, relax, and share meals. We made good use of the terrace, as we were fortunate to have unusually...

Pros: Central location, quiet, secure, spacious. The road has character / charm. Helpful caretaker Faoud, met us on arrival & showed us the place, and got the DVD player mended during our week there. Good cook available - Fadisha, at reasonable prices. No need for air con, as cool by the sea (wind). Cons: The terrace was unusable due to...

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...

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. A limited number of flights come into Essaouira airport and this is a 25 minute drive from the house.<BR><BR>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 from Essaouira airport (starting at 200 dhms), from Marrakech (starting at 700 dhms) and from Agadir (starting at 800 dhms). <BR><BR>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 t... more
