Overview
Riad -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Essaouira, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
One of Essaouira’s best kept secrets is Dar Qawi, a British owned riad, in prime location within the old city walls and only five minutes walk from the beach. Step over the threshold and the tinkling of an antique alabaster fountain welcomes you into this peaceful oasis which combines Arabic charm with European comfort.

Perfect location, pretty central amongst winding alleys. Health spa across the way, provisions store literally next door, roof terrace, easy walk into town, harbour and the beach - perfect! And the lovely Zara who brings breakfast, cleans and will cook an evening meal if required.

We ended up in Dar Qawi completely by accident as we had been double booked elsewhere for our stay in Essaouira. The person that we had been double booked with found Dar Qawi for us to stay in instead. Serendipity! The riad would have been...More

Essaouira is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site and it has several interesting historic buildings. It is also a working fishing port and every day you can greet the returning fishing boats with their plentiful catch which you can buy there and then in the harbour.

How to get there
Airport: Marrakech: 170.0 km
Essaouira has its own International airport however, for direct flights from Paris and London and some other European cities.
Many visitors to Essaouira fly to Marrakech but Agadir is also a possibility. Both are about 170 km from Essaouira. the drive from Marrakech is very straightforward and takes about 2.5 hours, the drive from Agadir is much more scenic but due to the winding coastal road it takes a good half an hour longer. Taxis from either cost in the region of Euro 75 one way. From Marrakech there are also comfortable air conditioned coaches, notably Supratours, which go to Essaouira several times a day. Car hire is also easily available.
