Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Essaouira, Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region
This little hippy house is very well located being 2 minutes walk to the main square, Place Moulay Hassan.
The house is laid out over 4 floors and cosy enough for a couple yet enough space and privacy if there are 4. The style is very traditional with thick stone walls and original patterned tiles on the floors. It is furnished with a mix of modern 60's pieces plus a few Moroccan artifax thrown in.
You get a feel for the real Essaouira when staying at Dar Emma, there are a handful of Moroccan families living in the small side street, all very friendly and making life a lot more interesting than if staying in a hotel.

Dar Emma could not have been more perfect for my first experience of Essaouira & Morocco!! The house is beautiful and just perfect for giving a real Moroccan feel. The location was ideal in The Medina. We couldn't have asked for more from Emma W who's communication with regards to arrangements and recommendations was so helpful and made the holiday...

The location is great, the house is fantastic and Emma made sure that we were well looked after. She had arranged for the housekeeper to prepare a meal for us on our first night which was superb albeit far too much to eat!. She also organised a friend Mohammed to briefly show us round and point out various places to...

Simply put - quite an incredible place to stay. Everything is spot on. We really made the most of the great multi layered terrace and also the open fire at ground floor. A tranquil bolt hole in the middle of the medina. Essaouria is a great and atmospheric place but the riad was difficult to leave. All the home comforts....

Thx Mark, come back soon! Emma
