Enjoy your stay in our beautifully renovated Moroccan riad in Essaouira

Our intimate riad (Morocco traditional home) has been lovingly renovated using traditional materials and techniques. Beijmats tiles, tadelakt walls  provide classic Moroccan style with a hint of contemporary design. Every piece of furniture was made by local craftsmen or bought at the flea market and renovated by us.

We have 4 charming and very confortable guest rooms (each of them with bathroom and toilets) as well as a quiet sunny roof terrace and a cosy lounge where you can enjoy a glass of mint tea or warm up during the colder season.

Our riad Dar Darek provides 2 vacation options : stay with us on a bed and breakfast basis or private riad rental with housekeeper services. We can accomodate 8 people.
