NEW: Check out Dar 91 in the Desert!

Wahed: perfect for families or couples

Light and airy Wahed (‘one’ in Moroccan Arabic) is a three-storey townhouse-style apartment.

From its imposing French windows, you can watch daily life unfold – children playing on the street; women drawing water from the public fountain; craftsmen heading back and forth to their tiny workshops; horses coming home to their stables at night.

Details

Wahed has two bedrooms, two shower rooms, a living room, simply equipped kitchen/dining area and a split-level roof terrace with open views across the medina and to the sea. One bedroom, with a queen-size bed (150cm), 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 Moroccan banquette-style sofas, one of which can used as an extra bed. There is fast fibreoptic internet, and an ipod speaker.

Booking

You may find the apartment on third party booking sites, but we also take direct reservations and can usually offer a discounted rate. We are happy to organise taxi transfers, tours and other local services. Make an enquiry.

From the moment we stepped off the bus and took the short walk through the great walls into the alley way, we were taken back in time. The pace of life is slow, and the people are warm and friendly. Dar 91 is in the perfect location, close to everything, yet tucked away enough so you’re able to appreciate the sounds and silences of the Essaouira way of life.
