On the off chance that I would find accomodation in Essaouira.I rang the bell of a new bright and shining Riad called Dar Les Sirenes. I was met with the warmest of receptions.Before I even asked if there was availability, the handsome Italian couple sat me by a warm fireplace served me a welcomed espresso and biscuits and proceeded to ask me how they could help me?! I asked for a room, they showed me the two of several that were available plus a tour of the entire house. The owners, Edorado and Mimmi are Venetians, now living and working in Essaouira.Edoardo is an architect. The house, completely restored, posseses the old word charm and hospitality of Venice.
The design and style are nothing short of elegant, yet it maintains the feeling of Morocco.Overall it is one of the most spectacular riads I have seen.Immaculately clean, wonderful food, 5 star service
all with great value and owners who cannot do enough for you.The next time I will rent the entire house for a family stay.Come and discover the new secret in Essaouira. It was my lucky day!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad boutique in the medina of Essaouira. Les Sirenes welcome you in an intimate and elegant atmosphere inside the medina of Essaouira. The Space Les Sirenes welcomes you to a cosy, elegant setting inside the medina of Essaouira. An old dar, next to the city walls, has been finely restored in contemporary style by Italian architect Edoardo Miotti. Unexpected external openings render its spaces large and bright. The use of pale colours and traditional Moroccan materials like tadelakt and thuja, create a warm, restful atmosphere. By day you can enjoy the sun on the large terrace and by night you can relax in front of the fire in the living room on the ground floor or in the privacy of your room. Five rooms, each furnished with its own personality, are located on the first and second floor of the house. Rooms are heated, have all comforts and have a private bathroom with a shower or bathtub. "Noiraude" is a small room on two floors with a three-quarter bed. It has two large windows that open onto the outside and a bathroom with a bathtub. It is ideal for one person or a couple on their honeymoon. "Sauvage" is a double room with a view over the city walls. It is furnished in African style and has a modern bathroom with shower. "Rousse" is one of the two suites, with a double bed, fireplace and bathroom with a bathtub. The space features a large window that makes it bright and cool in summer months.
