Essaouira house description

Dar Lazuli is a 200 year old riad in Essaouira on Morocco's Atlantic Coast. The riad has been renovated to a high standard using contemporary designs, giving it a light, airy and tranquill feel.
This holiday accommodation in Essaouira consists of 4 boutique self-catering apartments which can be rented individually. The riad is also perfect for exclusive use by a family or group of friends, sleeping 8-10 in total.
The apartments have a huge double bed, open fireplace, bathroom with ‘Rainfall’ shower, sitting and dining areas with ipod docking stations and fully equipped kitchens.
The riad is cleaned on a daily basis by Latifa, who can also prepare traditional Moroccan meals for you.


Dar Lazuli takes its social responsibility seriously and we have designed the house in partnership with local artisans, craftsmen and women who have helped build and decorate the property. We’ve commissioned lamps, bed throws, upholstery and more from Souiri locals. We deliberately did not install baths due to the demand on the ancient plumbing system in the medina and the annual droughts in the country. We also subscribe to the Every Drop Counts Campaign and therefore urge guests to use water carefully. Furthermore, a percentage of our profit helps a family of seven in the neighbouring village of Ghazoua, so far focused on supporting the children’s education with six months French tuition and school & sports equipment. We will endeavour to continue and extend this support on behalf of Dar Lazuli’s guests.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              Dar Lazuli riad is perfectly located just inside Essaouira's medina walls, a couple of minutes walk to the beach, cafes, restaurants & souks.

                              Essaouira has a temperate climate, so makes a great year round destination, especially for those seeking winter sun.

                              Listed as one of the world’s best beaches, Essaouira is well-known for watersports including surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing. You can also rent a quad bike & explore the sand dunes, or take a camel or horse trek along the coast.

                              For the less adventurous, the broad sandy beaches are perfect for long walks & the sea is great for swimming.

                              Wander the narrow streets & souks in the medina, watch the fishermen bringing in the daily catch at the port, pay a visit to the wood workshops, or simply find a café in the main square – Place Moulay Hassan, & watch the world go by.

                              The annual Gnaoua or Gnawa World Music Festival in June features a great line up of musicians and artists from all over the world.

                              Other Activities: Kitesurfing, quad biking, camel riding.

                              Golf: The Essaouira Mogador Golf Club has recently opened and is a 10 minute drive from Essaouira. It is a 36-hole course stretching over 580 hectares designed by the renowned Gary Player.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: Dar Lazuli was renovated and opened for business in 2007. For about 200 years previously, the property was inhabited by generations of fishing families and our neighbours are still at the heart of this important local industry. We, Rachel and Nicola, are both passionate about responsible and independent travel and wanted to create a cosy base from which guests could freely explore the labyrinthine medina and vast open beaches of Essaouira, safe in the knowledge that they could return to a quiet haven with comfort and relaxation at its core.

                              Why the Owner Chose Essaouira:
                              Dar Lazuli takes its social responsibility seriously and we have designed the house in partnership with local artisans, craftsmen and women who have helped build and decorate the property. We’ve commissioned lamps, bed throws, upholstery and more from Souiri locals. We deliberately did not install baths due to the demand on the ancient plumbing system in the medina and the annual droughts in the country. We also subscribe to the Every Drop Counts Campaign and therefore urge guests to use water carefully. Furthermore, a percentage of our profit helps a family of seven in the neighbouring village of Ghazoua, so far focused on supporting the children’s education with six months French tuition and school & sports equipment. We will endeavour to continue and extend this support on behalf of Dar Lazuli’s guests.
