Property description

Three minutes from the souks and five minutes from Essaouira’s beach and fishing port is Dar Rondé, a riad townhouse with rounded walls, Berber doorways, vibrantly coloured stone floors and fireplaces set deep in to soaring white walls. Designed by Maria Pergay, the house is spread over three floors with two large en-suite bedrooms, one kingsize, one twin, a private sauna and two secluded terraces (one in the middle, one on the roof). A garden of palms fills the tiled courtyard as you enter the house, circled by glass walls, there is an entertainment room with traditional beldi ceiling and a salon with long sofas and spacious dining area.

Private cook: On your first evening, house chef, Yusef will prepare a welcoming, complimentary tagine to restore you after your long journey here. Every morning, breakfast will be provided (included in the price) ranging from breads, omelettes and fruit salad to yoghurts and traditional Moroccan style delights.

Should you wish to dine-in on other days, Yusef will prepare meals for you at additional cost.

Dar Rondé - as featured on Good Morning, ITV, Sunday Telegraph; Home and Living, Concept for Living; Spring Issue, Red magazine and Living Abroad.
