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.

Renting this property was very straightforward and efficient though I regret using booking.com as the owners speak english and I could have saved them the 18% commission. Faoud arranged the luggage cart for both journeys, the children enjoyed the ride too, nice breakfasts and evening meal. Lovely warm log fire. The camel ride ,price started at 150dhs and ended up...

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...

About the neighbourhood
Essaouira is a small historic fishing port on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, renowned for its laid-back and friendly atmosphere, souks stuffed full of local art and craftwork as well as local produce, its long sandy beach and its well-preserved old walled medina, named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2001.

The weather is temperate and warm year-round and the bracing sea winds make it an attractive spot for windsurfing. The long sandy beach is also home to daily local football and basket ball games and at the south end are the ruins of Borj el-Berod, mythically said to have been the inspiration for Jimi Hendrix, Castles made of sand. The old medina ramparts are a great spot to watch the waves crashing onto the rocks as the sun goes down over the Ile de Mogador, a group of tiny isl...

How to get there
Airport: Marrakech or Agadir: 180.0 km
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.

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).

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 the medina in Essaouira. Our caretaker...
