In the months from May to November it is nice to enjoy the fresh air and temperatures allow to stay outside on the terraces until late at night.

We look forward to welcome you in our open terrace house and tranquil atmosphere. About the city: Welcome to Essaouira! No longer a mid-1960's hippy hangout (Jimi Hendrix used to party here); Essaouira has evolved into a still-undiscovered gem of pristine beaches, great windsurfing, laid back nightspots and hearty restaurants. The narrow streets keep traffic to a minimum and encourage walking. With little effort you'll find yourself walking past the multi-colored doors, tall stucco-colored houses and the eclectic mix of euro-tourism and weather-worn locals.

The SpaceThe "Dar Beloute" is ideally located in a typical street of Essaouira, lined with beautiful old houses and religious buildings along the south walls, away from the noise and yet close to markets and the life of the medina, restaurants, the harbour, the beach. For those who know the medina, it is the least humid part, the sweetest and best protected from the prevailing winds in the old city. The house has just undergone a complete renovation. It offers 3 levels of living (50m2 ground surface approximately): - Ground floor: kitchen, patio / living room + small room with 2 beds, bathroom, small bathroom - 1st floor: large bedroom with dressing room and shower room + wc - 2nd floor: large living room with 2 beds / sofas; it opens with four high windows on the street + Moorish window on the adjacent street + glass pyramid covering the patio; This room is convertible into an extra bedroom (with large wall hangings to drag to protect from light) + small shower room / wc - Terrace: shaded (with grating of reeds), amazing view to the sea, ramparts, harbour, and roofs of the medina Guest AccessThe whole house only is to let. Interaction with GuestsHassan is our home manager, he will offer a very careful , friendly and competent help; he will explain the home and Essaouira in detail, as well as Turia, who takes care of the household; she can also prepare your breakfasts and cook delicious meals (=> to be ordered and arranged directly with her). I will also gladly answer all your questions prior to your stay (and then too!). The NeighborhoodRue d'Agadir ( Derb Agadir) is in a typical district with its old mosque, a Koranic school for small children, which gives life and cheerfulness to the street + some other (both old and renovated) houses, belonging to both foreigners and old souiri families. Its very quiet in the night. Getting AroundWalking is the main way of transportation inside the medina, and part of its charm! Easy access from Bab Marrakech: one of the three main gates in the walls that surround the old city... Large parking area. Presence of carriers with their carts to help carry your luggage and heavy things.

  • Breakfast
The SpaceWhen you reserve with Airbnb, your breakfast is always included! Dar Houria is not a hotel or commercial rental; it is a private home that we make available to friends, family and guests. We don’t rent to ‘customers’, ‘tourists’ or ‘clients’, rather we welcome you as our private guests (the subtlety is important :)). Some background to Essaouira, and things to do (then more about accommodation options and advice further below): Essaouira is a charming small fisherman’s port, with traditional ‘souk’ markets, friendly laid-back people and an old UNESCO world-heritage medina that is easy to navigate. It is well known for its ‘thuya’ wood carving artisans and furniture, berber jewellery, traditional goatskin lamps, fresh Atlantic seafood, and of course where you can obtain exceptional culinary and cosmetic argan oil (we recommend obtaining this from our own stock at Dar Houria, because we have already ensured it is the real thing!) Essaouira bay and nearby beach spots are well-known for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing (our friends and partners can guide you, we know, we organised two professional kiteboarding events there!) A northern breeze keeps Essaouira cool all year (15-25 degrees Celsius), so it is a favourite respite from nearby Marrakesh for both tourists and locals. Essaouira was once known as Mogador, and its port has a rich history of Silk Road trade between the West and the East, to Timbuktu across the Sahara and beyond to Asia. Gnaoua music was one of the cultural results of this trade. In the 1960s-70s, it is said that musicians Jimmy Hendrix and Frank Zappa had been inspired by the ‘purple haze’ often seen in spectacular sunsets over Mogador Island that sits 3 km out in the bay. One of the best known events in Essaouira is the annual Gnaoua Music Festival in late June (you must book in advance!) Many travelers use Essaouira as a restful home-base for short excursions further inland, to witness traditional berber markets and the springtime ‘moussem’ and ‘fantasia’, or camel-back and 4x4 off-road excursions (we’re glad to connect you with local partners for these), as well as longer trips beyond Marrakesh, across the Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate, the Draa Valley and Zagora, or South to Taroudant and Tiznit. Guest AccessWe do not have internet or TV in the house, but we do have a collection of well-read classic and paperback books available, and family board and card games for all ages, too (there are many internet cafes in the medina). You have access to the sunny roof-top terrace anytime, where you can have your meals day or night, sunbathe or just relax in shaded areas. Since it is open-sky, the house has plenty of natural light, is well-ventilated and cool, even in summer. We don’t recommend that you purchase lots of food and cook meals for yourselves, though the ground floor kitchen is equipped for it. Obviously, preparing coffee, making a sandwich, etc. is easy, a refrigerator is available to you and frying up an omelette won’t be difficult if you want to do that. But, we do prefer you leave it to our staff to propose cooking the largest meals for you. It is cost effective and saves you time. Keep in mind, your free breakfast will be hearty! If you want to eat a traditional meal at Dar Houria, which we recommend highly, usually a couscous or tagine, consider a cost of +-80DH per person per meal, including drinks (water, soda or juice and mint tea), simply make arrangements with our concierge a day in advance to determine when you want the meal, and do not hesitate to ask for 'bag lunches’ too, if you need those for your daily excursions. Interaction with GuestsOur concierge can be the source of many good referrals to other services such as ‘hammam’ and massage, where to find internet cafes, restaurants, shops and even might suggest taking you to ‘must-see’ sites. Whenever that is the case, she does so as your friend, not your guide (again, the subtlety is important :)), but do ensure you are prepared to participate financially in the cost of the referrals and activities, in local currency. The dollar is worth about 8 DH and the Euro about 10 DH. Anything is possible by arranging in advance. At the house, you will find a book of business cards and brochures for various activities, organisations and services, and a map of the city showing the location of the tourist office. We have very good knowledge of Morocco and its customs, how people relate to money and approach relationships, so please do e-mail or call us with any questions or advice you may need before you go. The NeighborhoodDar Houria is located inside the old Medina, in a nice dry area away from the humidity often found in other parts of the medina, that is well lit and very safe. Our neighbours are wonderful people who always offer a smile: never hesitate to smile and say 'salam alekum' to say hi, and 'shukran' for thank you. You are better served speaking Moroccan dialect, classic Arabic or French, but English and German are also common. Essaouira is suprisingly cosmopolitan with many international residents, well-known artists and Arab intellectuals who appreciate the relaxed environment away from the public bustle of London, Paris or Marrakesh. Getting AroundIn Essaouira, you can get most places walking, but it is easy and cheap to take a 'petit taxi', usually costs 10 DH for most trips, for example to get from one end of the bay near the dunes, back to the old medina. Once in the medina, just walk. From our place, it is easy to walk to the beach or the fishing port. To visit places outside Essaouira proper, you can hire a 'grand taxi'. Both petit and grand taxis are easily found at the Bab Marrakesh entrance to the medina, or at Bab Doukkala, where there's a regional terminal for city buses to take you to nearby villages Diabat, Sidi Kaouki or Moulay Bouzerktoune. Again, taxis can be very cost-effective, particularly if you have surfing gear. Just let us or our concierge know, we can help. Other Things to NoteUpon arrival to Morocco, customs officials will ask you to fill out an ‘arrival card’ in which you will identify the location you are staying as ‘private home, rue Houria, medina Essaouira’ or in French ‘maison privé, rue Houria, medina Essaouira’.

The NeighborhoodMaison A is located in the heart of the medina, it is not just a way of saying , it is true, it heard to say what I really love of my neighborhood but I can try to describe : Why 'Essaouira All you have to do is to keep the wind behind Joseph Conrad, The shadow line The wind, waves, seagulls, they welcome the traveler who arrives after a long journey to the ancient walled city of Essaouira. The decadent charm it soon becomes very strong, the colors and sounds of the Medina, is the presentation of the city. Its history, through millennia of civilization, famous for the production of purple during the Roman rule, continues to be a strategic port under occupation Berber, Portuguese and took the name of Mogador. The coexistence of different races and cultures, was made possible by a strong spirit of tolerance and freedom of expression, association that has been passed down through time until today, issuing a strong positive energy that inspires many artists who have made it his home. As an old lady .. The charm is intact, even the wind, and salt damage to the old city walls of Essaouira a strong romantic .. No one, no one can 'escape the old lady: The first light of dawn on the terrace of a riad in the Medina The photographer who seeks the shooting of a life The gourmant that is lost in the spice bazahar The artist, absorbed in a picture of the fish market The surfer, as he waited, patient, HIS wave The love, the twilight of the fortress of scale .... Along with a thousand cats that make a siesta Those who, like us, got pushed by the wind at his back .. Aday and a night in the life of Essaouira The first meeting dates back to a September evening, I'm not sure what I’m searching if not escaping the deafening noise, the unbearable heat from the medina of Marrakesh. On the road to Essaouira, meeting more than humanity, pastors who return with the harvest, small towns, many many children. Obligatory stop for my driver: evening prayer, by the roadside. The air is fresher, the sun sets behind the two small islands, sails kitesurfers color the sky, the beach is really great as the guide said. Surfers crossing the street, camels resting lazy. How to get to Malibu in the 50 '.. but three hours from home, amazing .. "L’Ocean Vagabond" is the outpost, the headquarters of the surfers in the area, Julien, the owner greets me warmly, boys and girls sunbathing, surfing the web waiting to jump back into the ocean. They drink mint tea, but also iced rosé wine, successful tradition imported from the coast blue., Au revoir les amis ...! I walk the long stretch of beach that separates me from the ancient walls, the sun has set and for the first time in a long time I feel the need to cover me, I did not think it was such a nice feeling. To imagine the night at Essaouira, You should at least have the right soundtrack in mind, free to travel with imagination while the old fortress open it’s doors: Inside, a world in its everyday life explodes in front of me, someone is selling fresh eggs wile few meters away a craftsman is busy forging iron. The great history of the Berber capital, is preserved from ancient portals, within them lie beautiful Riad with their flower gardens. The mysterious beauty of ancient mansions, has remained intact, enhanced, or even tweak the taste of Europeans who made of discrete maison de vacance au maroc, thus preserving its ancient beauty The eyes of the people you meet , are still curious to scrutinize a traveler, doesn’t happen in Paris, London. Latif welcomes me in his restaurant, I like to remember that the first time I walked in, I thought it was one of the most beautiful places ever seen my life. The eclectic interior style, with beautiful paintings and pictures, the amazing music make a true unique atmosphere. Elisir is a true place of the soul. The night wraps when I leave the medina, the cats have taken over the streets, at least until morning, when the first carts piled high with strawberries arrive, merchants will open their colorful shops, fishermen landed on the ground fish species ever seen, while buyers are fighting to search for good business, perhaps unaware of the fact of already having been caught by the lens of a photographer who wanted to fix scenes that rarely happens to watch in the big city. It is very easy to reach the house , is located 5 min. far from BAB'sBAA the medina's door next to the beach . there is a public parking that cost more or less 3 euros per day . We can easily arrange your pick up at the airport a driver will be at the arrival hall either in Marrakech or Essaouira airport and will take you to BAB'SBAA , there you will meet Asma responsable of the riad and she will guide you at the house . you arrival will be easy and smooth

The SpaceWith seagulls flying by and horseshoes rhythm in the air, our apartment is cozy and intimate. The guest room has a double bed with new Simmons mattress, a pretty hand painted wardrobe, a long sofa and a Moroccan low table. The lovely salon has two traditional sofa-beds and a big round table for 4, perfect for enjoying a tagine between friends, to have a tea, a chat or a nap. Our sofas are using the order-made mattresses from good handwork shop, actually they are made for typical Moroccan traditional beds, if you come as a group of 3, 4 person, the salon can be used as a twins or double bedroom with easy arrangement. Guest Access*Fully equipped kitchen for cooking your own meal *Large terrace for breakfast, afternoon tea, reading in the shade or a lazy sunbath with seagulls singing in the sky *7/24 hot shower *Wifi in whole house *Local mobile phone available for renting at a small charge *Free parking street Interaction with GuestsI shall meet my guest at the bus station. But if your flight arrives late, from Marrakech airport you may need to take a taxi ( 600dh) or to rent a car to get to Essaouira. Or alternatively, stay one or more nights in a riad in Marrakech. If need any arrangement or recommendation please feel free to contact me. I speak English, Spanish, Chinese (both in Mandarin and Cantonese). As a female traveler and long time resident here, I learned a lot from the good and the bad, if you like some chat with a “local foreigner”, I'll be happy to give any information that may help. My Arabic is still very limited, but I can teach you some simple words like "Hello", "Goodbye", "Thank you", "A small bottle of water please….." or "Off!" Yes, you will see me in the apartment. This is my new place. I love travelling, Japan Thailand India Nepal Kenya.... Morocco has always been in my favorite top 3. When I quit my job from the beloved newspaper, I came here to make a travel started with two months in a desert village and ended up in Essaouira. Unexpectedly a long vacation turned out to be a 5 years stay. I love Essaouira. Oh, if anyone wants to learn how to prepare a tagine or couscous, my ex neighbor is a super cook, and she speaks more than enough English to teach, we can arrange a friendly class in her lovely apartment. Authentic Moroccan cuisine in a family kitchen, everyone can afford to learn. The NeighborhoodFresh fruit juice, homemade yogurt, local bakery, supermarket, laundry shop, cash machine…they are all near by. A big nice hammam is only 2 streets behind, clean, hot, lively~12dh, a "must try". The long journey bus station and main post office are at a 20-minutes walk away. Getting AroundActually our apartment is at the border of old medina, to both Gate Marrakech and Gate Doukara are 12-15 minutes walk. But in lazy days you can always take a taxi, pay 7dh (60 euro cents) and you will arrive at any gate in no time. From bedroom window you can see the street corner leading to the sea, 13-15 min walk. But try at least once : take a carriage to get there though you might walk faster. Enjoy a short ride, it is an interesting experience sitting among local ladies in jilabas and have their friendly smile. 2dh for the carriage . Go for surfing with your own board? A camel ride then lunch at Ocean Vogabond? A sunset drink at Beach and Friends or some hot live music at Taros until late? Go fresh and come back by taxi right to the door, not much walking needed--a big advantage of living outside of old medina. 8dh taxi ride is a treat in midnight. There are country side markets on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, may go by local bus or grand taxi, both stands are in walking distance. Car rental can be organized with reliable agent, good price. Other Things to NoteI would say, if this is your first visit to Morocco or the only stop in this trip, my place may not be what you are looking for ; but if you have already tasted the colorful medina ambient, walked through many historic narrow streets and got lost in the night like me before..... this is a place you will be happy to stay. And I love the "dug dug" rhythm of horse carriage in the air, it will remind you : we are in Morocco....

    The SpaceThe apartment truly offers the best of both worlds. It is located within the shadows of the walls of the Medina (Old town) between Bab (Gate) Marrakech and Bab Doukala with easy access to markets, restaurants, craft shops, galleries and all that the magical town of Essaouira has to offer. However, unlike dwellings inside the medina where vehicles are not allowed to enter, the apartment’s location allows easy vehicle access right to the door. Street parking within close proximity is also available. The apartment is very close to the bus station and the Massira Avenue markets. The ground level apartment combines beautiful traditional Moroccan architecture with the comfort of modern living. It is well equipped with two bedrooms, a living room, a dining space and a small but very pleasant courtyard. While in principle the apartment sleeps 4 persons (1 double and 2 single beds), the three traditional and comfortable sofas in the lounge room allow for an extra 3 people. An LED TV with satellite international channels in various languages as well as a DVD player with a surround sound system can also be found in the lounge room. The kitchen is will equipped with a brand new fridge, stove, microwave, washing machine and all that you need for cooking and serving food and beverages. The bathroom is modern with a hot shower and a seated toilet “a la European”. The whole building is new, clean and well maintained. Interaction with GuestsFeel free to contact me with any question you might have about the place and also about accessing various activities in town. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The NeighborhoodMaison A is located in the heart of the medina, it is not just a way of saying , it is true, it heard to say what I really love of my neighborhood but I can try to describe : Why 'Essaouira All you have to do is to keep the wind behind Joseph Conrad, The shadow line The wind, waves, seagulls, they welcome the traveler who arrives after a long journey to the ancient walled city of Essaouira. The decadent charm it soon becomes very strong, the colors and sounds of the Medina, is the presentation of the city. Its history, through millennia of civilization, famous for the production of purple during the Roman rule, continues to be a strategic port under occupation Berber, Portuguese and took the name of Mogador. The coexistence of different races and cultures, was made possible by a strong spirit of tolerance and freedom of expression, association that has been passed down through time until today, issuing a strong positive energy that inspires many artists who have made it his home. As an old lady .. The charm is intact, even the wind, and salt damage to the old city walls of Essaouira a strong romantic .. No one, no one can 'escape the old lady: The first light of dawn on the terrace of a riad in the Medina The photographer who seeks the shooting of a life The gourmant that is lost in the spice bazahar The artist, absorbed in a picture of the fish market The surfer, as he waited, patient, HIS wave The love, the twilight of the fortress of scale .... Along with a thousand cats that make a siesta Those who, like us, got pushed by the wind at his back .. Aday and a night in the life of Essaouira The first meeting dates back to a September evening, I'm not sure what I’m searching if not escaping the deafening noise, the unbearable heat from the medina of Marrakesh. On the road to Essaouira, meeting more than humanity, pastors who return with the harvest, small towns, many many children. Obligatory stop for my driver: evening prayer, by the roadside. The air is fresher, the sun sets behind the two small islands, sails kitesurfers color the sky, the beach is really great as the guide said. Surfers crossing the street, camels resting lazy. How to get to Malibu in the 50 '.. but three hours from home, amazing .. "L’Ocean Vagabond" is the outpost, the headquarters of the surfers in the area, Julien, the owner greets me warmly, boys and girls sunbathing, surfing the web waiting to jump back into the ocean. They drink mint tea, but also iced rosé wine, successful tradition imported from the coast blue., Au revoir les amis ...! I walk the long stretch of beach that separates me from the ancient walls, the sun has set and for the first time in a long time I feel the need to cover me, I did not think it was such a nice feeling. To imagine the night at Essaouira, You should at least have the right soundtrack in mind, free to travel with imagination while the old fortress open it’s doors: Inside, a world in its everyday life explodes in front of me, someone is selling fresh eggs wile few meters away a craftsman is busy forging iron. The great history of the Berber capital, is preserved from ancient portals, within them lie beautiful Riad with their flower gardens. The mysterious beauty of ancient mansions, has remained intact, enhanced, or even tweak the taste of Europeans who made of discrete maison de vacance au maroc, thus preserving its ancient beauty The eyes of the people you meet , are still curious to scrutinize a traveler, doesn’t happen in Paris, London. Latif welcomes me in his restaurant, I like to remember that the first time I walked in, I thought it was one of the most beautiful places ever seen my life. The eclectic interior style, with beautiful paintings and pictures, the amazing music make a true unique atmosphere. Elisir is a true place of the soul. The night wraps when I leave the medina, the cats have taken over the streets, at least until morning, when the first carts piled high with strawberries arrive, merchants will open their colorful shops, fishermen landed on the ground fish species ever seen, while buyers are fighting to search for good business, perhaps unaware of the fact of already having been caught by the lens of a photographer who wanted to fix scenes that rarely happens to watch in the big city. Getting AroundIt is very easy to reach the house , is located 5 min. far from BAB'sBA the medina's door next to the beach . there is a public parking that cost more or less 3 euros per day . We can easily arrange your pick up at the airport a driver will be at the arrival hall either in Marrakech or Essaouira airport and will take you to BAB'SBAA , there you will meet Asma responsable of the riad and she will guide you at the house . you arrival will be easy and smooth I promise you : ) Other Things to Notewe do have dishwasher and washing machine

      The SpaceSmall but perfectly formed, Tlata has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. It's perfect if you’re on a budget, and is great as a quiet space for working or contemplation. Tlata has a comfortable and simply-equipped living room/dining/kitchen area, a shower room and a mezzanine double bed. The apartment is entirely self-contained but shares a door to the street with Dar 91 Zhuzh, so can also form part of a bigger whole. Please note: Tlata does not have its own outside space, but it is lovely and light, and its windows open directly onto the historic medina wall. Guest AccessAll bedding and towels (not beach towels) are included. We provide you with coffee, tea, sugar, milk and a bottle of water on arrival. There is an i-pod player, wireless internet and a hair dryer. Interaction with GuestsWe split our time between the UK and Morocco, so we may or may not be present during your stay. Either way, we work hard to help you prepare for your stay, especially if it is your first time. We are always on hand to answer your questions before and after you book, and send all our guests our in-depth guide to Essaouira, which helps you get a good sense of the place and receives positive reviews from all our guests. We are happy to organise airport transfers and help you book local activities; unlike many accommodation providers we take no commission when making any arrangements with third parties. The NeighborhoodWe love our neighbourhood, Chbanat. In an ever-changing medina it still retains its charm. The area is well-known for its textile workshops, where weavers spin their yarn and create beautiful handwoven blankets, throws and scarves on traditional looms. It is one of the most unspoilt and authentically Moroccan quarters in the town. You could say it's rough around the edges....but it's safe too. Getting AroundEssaouira is accessible by Supratours bus, grand taxi or hire car from Marrakech, Agadir and other cities. We are happy to book taxis; you pay the driver and we take no commission. Dar 91 is easy to find (we will send you directions) and there is parking near Bab Marrakech - about five minutes' walk. Small taxis for trips to the beach and elsewhere in the new town are found near Bab Doukkala, and horse carriage taxis are also nearby. Other Things to NoteWe are strongly committed to sustainable tourism and are passionate about the need for holiday providers, especially in developing countries – and their guests – to do what they can to help the local community wherever possible. Since we opened in 2006 we have given a minimum of 10% of our profits to local good causes. In 2012 we set up our own charity, Project 91, to help young people in Essaouira improve their job prospects, and continue to give 10% of all profits from Dar 91 to it. We raise money for Project 91 in a variety of ways, including via our own campaign, Leave Your Wardrobe in Morocco, through which our and others' guests can donate unwanted clothes and other items for sale in the Project 91 shop, with 100% of the profits going to the charity. Projects funded by Project 91 so far include free English lessons for local young people, driving lessons, funded placements at hairdressing school, and support for various local families struggling to continue funding their children through secondary school. We also run a dental hygiene project in the countryside near Essaouira.

The NeighborhoodIn the early 1950s film director and actor Orson Welles stayed at the Hotel des Iles just south of the town walls during the filming of his 1952 classic version of "Othello" which contains several memorable scenes shot in the labyrinthine streets and alleyways of the medina. During Welles's sojourn in the town he met Winston Churchill, another guest at the Hotel des Iles. Orson Welles's bust is located in a small square just outside the medina walls close to the sea. Several other film directors have utilised Essaouira's photogenic and atmospheric qualities. Beginning in the late 1960s, Essaouira became something of a hippie hangout. Despite common misconception, Jimi Hendrix's song "Castles Made of Sand" was written in 1967, two years before he visited the castles of Essaouira. Cat Stevens, Carlos Santana, bob Marley, Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt have also spent some time in Essaouira.

Interaction with GuestsWe will welcome upon your arrival and we are at your disposal during your stay! The NeighborhoodEssaouira offers the ideal climate for short or long visits, as sunshine is guaranteed almost every day of the year. The wind from the ocean helps to maintain an ideal temperature, no matter what the season. Inside the walls of the medina (historic city center) protect its dwellers from the strong afternoon winds. These same winds are ideal for those who love to windsurf and kitesurf. No matter what time of the year, you will almost always find a warm, but moderate climate in Essaouira The medina is teaming with history, artists and musicians, and was once a refuge for hippies. The cannons along the walls of the fortress that look to the north to the rocky coast of the Atlantic ocean, contrast with the large bays and extensive sandy beaches on the south side of the town. Separating the rocks and the beach, and just outside the city walls, is a picturesque fishing port, where one can choose from a vast selection of fresh fish that can be taken home or prepared on the spot. Despite being a popular vacation spot, Essaouira has maintained its identity as an authentic and completely Moroccan city, where harmony reigns between families that have lived there for centuries, its newer “ex-pat” citizens from Europe and North American , and visitors from all parts of the world. Essaouira is truly a unique destination, one that offers exotic smells, sights and experiences. Visitors will have no problem finding plenty to do in the area! The medina (historic city center) offers an array hard to resist of colors, spices, clothes, local handmade and other traditional wares in its numerous bazaars and small shops. If you can tear yourself away from these shopping opportunities, there is much to enjoy in Essaouria and the surrounding areas. Getting AroundHammam Traditional Moroccan baths, a cross between a sauna and a steam bath. There are many authentic hammans in Essauira, where you can also indulge in popular and very reasonably priced massages and other beauty treatments. There are also several quality spas in the area that offer Berber style massage and treatments. Golf di Mogador This well-known 18-hole golf course designed by Gary Player is only 6 kilometers from Essaouira. Suggested for beginners as well as experienced players, this is an exceptional experience that takes you through dunes, forests and provides breathtaking views of the Atlantic and surrounding countryside. Dromedaries and Equitation This is a “must-do” experience if galloping long distances along white sand beaches, enjoying the view of the city, ocean, dunes and countryside sounds too good to pass up. Outings are available on horseback or with dromedaries. For the more adventurous, overnight camp-out expeditions are available. Water sports “Windy Essaouira” is the perfect destination for those who love windsurfing and kitesurfing. There are plenty of waves and water for surfers, kayakers and swimmers as well. Many nautical centers along the beach just outside of town offer courses and equipment for purchase or rental. Other popular “surf” destinations are located in the nearby towns of Sidi Kaouki and Moulay Bouzerktoum. Quad Bikes This is a popular activity that the whole family can enjoy. Several shops offer safe, fun and interesting quad tours along the sand dunes south of the town. Tours can be arranged directly with the shops, lasting for anywhere from one hour to a whole day. Souk (markets) Go back in time by visiting some of the local traditional markets of the surrounding villages. These rustic and authentic bazaars, with wares and people arriving by donkey, camel and carts, will give you a true idea of life in the Moroccan villages and farm. Some of the many traditional markets worth visiting include: Tuesdays- Hinchan Wednesdays - Ida Ougourd Thursdays - Meskala Saturdays and Sundays - Had Draa Day trips: Sidi Kaouki - 25 kilometers south of Essaouira. The small village can be reached on foot in 5-7 hours of walking along the beach, or by an easy drive along well traveled roads. Beautiful beaches, ideal for surfers. Moulay Bouzerktoum - 20 kilometers north of Essaouira. Another beautiful beach, ideal for surfers. Safi – 120 kilometers north of Essaouira. In this small town along the Atlantic, you can see artisans producing their ceramic wares, using their age-old traditional methods. And lots more…!! Ask us about the many other towns that are worth visiting, and opportunities for hiking, biking, quad outings, horseback and camel riding near Essaouira and towards the Atlas mountains region.

        The SpaceDar 91 Wahed is a home-from-home for ourselves, our friends, family and guests. Forming the front half of a former police watchtower, we renovated this two-bedroom apartment in 2006, to create a comfortable base for your explorations of Essaouira. Wahed has two bedrooms, two shower rooms, a living room, simply equipped kitchen/dining area and a private, split-level roof terrace with open views across the medina and to the sea. One bedroom, a double, gives onto the terrace; the lower one can be made up as a double or twin, and has a small extra bed suitable for children. The middle floor has Wi-Fi and i-pod speakers. Guest AccessAll bedding and towels (not beach towels) are included. We also provide you with essential kitchen items, and our prices include bread, croissants and other breakfast ingredients, delivered fresh to your door each morning. To help you switch off, we have no TV but there is an i-pod/mp3 speakers and Wi-Fi. There is also an iron and ironing board and hair dryer if required. Our helpful and friendly staff can cook and/or deliver evening meals on request, can organise for guests’ laundry to be washed at the local laundry, and can babysit (all at additional cost, paid locally). They can also accompany you on trips to the souks, local hammam and to nearby country markets (the latter must be arranged in advance and relies on guests hiring a car or travelling on public transport). Raffia craft, cookery, patisserie and Arabic classes are available. We have a travel cot and bedding and a small selection of board games and books in the house and provide guests with suggestions of activities they and their children may enjoy in Essaouira. We send all guests our own guide to the house and Essaouira, which includes advice on how to handle cultural differences, ideas for things to do and our recommendations for the best restaurants, shopping etc. Interaction with GuestsWe split our time between the UK and Morocco, so we may or may not be present during your stay. Either way, we work hard to help you prepare for your stay, especially if it is your first time. We are always on hand to answer your questions before and after you book, and send all our guests our in-depth guide to Essaouira, which helps you get a good sense of the place and receives positive reviews from all our guests. We are happy to organise airport transfers and help you book local activities; unlike many accommodation providers we take no commission when making any arrangements with third parties. The NeighborhoodOur neighbourhood, Chbanat, is a part of the ancient medina famous for its textile workshops, where weavers spin their yarn and create beautiful handwoven blankets, throws and scarves on traditional looms. It is one of the most unspoilt and authentically Moroccan quarters in the town. You could say it's rough around the edges....but it's safe too. Through the beautiful French windows you can watch everyday Moroccan life unfold: children playing and collecting water from the communal well; women scurrying back and forth from the public oven; men spinning yarn, chatting on street corners or heading back from a fishing expedition. Overhead the seagulls cry and in the distance the slow march of time is captured by the muezzin’s calls to prayer. Chbanat is a quiet quarter but at the same time full of the hustle and bustle of everyday Moroccan life. The kids play on the street outside the house and can sometimes get noisy...but that's part of what we love about the place. Getting AroundEssaouira is accessible by Supratours bus, grand taxi or hire car from Marrakech, Agadir and other cities. We are happy to book taxis; you pay the driver and we take no commission. Dar 91 is easy to find (our house guide includes a map) and there is parking near Bab Maarakech - about five minutes' walk. Small taxis for trips to the beach and elsewhere in the new town are found near Bab Doukkala, and horse carriage taxis are also nearby. Other Things to Note We are strongly committed to sustainable tourism and are passionate about the need for holiday providers, especially in developing countries – and their guests – to do what they can to help the local community wherever possible. Since we opened in 2006 we have given a minimum of 10% of our profits to local good causes. In 2012 we set up our own charity, Project 91, to help young people in Essaouira improve their job prospects, and continue to give 10% of all profits from Dar 91 to it. We raise money for Project 91 in a variety of ways, including via our own campaign, Leave Your Wardrobe in Morocco, through which our and others' guests can donate unwanted clothes and other items for sale in the Project 91 shop, with 100% of the profits going to the charity. Projects funded by Project 91 so far include free English lessons for local young people, two funded placements at hairdressing school, and support for various local families struggling to continue funding their children through secondary school. We also contribute towards a dental hygiene project in the countryside near Essaouira.
