Property description

Looking for a quirky & stylish place to stay in Essaouira? Look no further! Dar Moulay is safe and fun and offers great value for money. We have travelled extensively and are fairly experienced hosts.

Dar Moulay is located in what is considered by some historians as the oldest building of Essaouira's UNESCO world heritage medina. The Jewish origin of the building and the apartment is apparent through large outward facing windows and typical wooden ceilings. This is the part of the old town/Medina where consulates and rich merchants used to live side by side. You are at the very centre of town, at the crossroad of the harbor, markets and residential areas. Step down and you are literally next to the main Moulay Hassan Square with it's charming cafés (the best, Ginger Café, with free wifi is just across the alley), bookstores and galleries. A mere 5 minutes stroll to the beach..

The apartment itself oozes charm and receives plenty of direct sunlight. The living room has a daybed/lounge area and is open to the kitchen. Bathroom and kitchen are well equipped and comfortable to use. Despite its unbeatable central location the apartment is very quiet but for the occasional call for prayer which adds a lot of atmosphere.

If you wish and for a small fee of €10/day Aisha, the house keeper is not only discreet and efficient but also a fabulous cook and fun shopping companion.

“It’s the kind of place one first hears about in a yoga class, discussed in heated whispers between sun salutations. About 10 years ago that place might have been Tulum, Mexico, but these days it's Essaouira, a tiny white-walled port city on Morocco's Atlantic coast.” - New York Times

Dar Moulay is located in what is considered by some historians as the oldest building of Essaouira's UNESCO world heritage medina. The Jewish origin of the building and the apartment is apparent through large outward facing windows and wooden ceilings. This is the part of the old town/Medina where consulates and rich merchants used to live side by side. Today this is still the very centre of town, at the crossroad of the harbor, markets and residential areas. You are literally next to the main Moulay Hassan Square with its charming cafés, bookstores and galleries. A mere 5 minutes stroll to the beach..

Other Activities: Kiteboarding

Golf: Essaouira currently has one 18 hole Gary Player designed Golf course. A further 18 hole course is due to be opened by the end of 2010. The course is located in the Essaouira-Mogador resort, a 10 minute drive from the Medina. More info on http://www.golfdemogador.com (website currently in French only). Green fees currently start at DH 350, aproximately €35.

Ski: Oukkaimeden is located aprox. 2.5 hours from Essaouira. There is usually snow from december through march. The resort is very basic (2 -3 lifts) and offers some -sub standard- rental possibilities. Very fun all in all and stunning views.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Noelia is Spanish, Matthias Austrian, we work in marketing/innovation services and live in Barcelona with our son Leon. We are avid travelers and enjoy seeing life from as many perspectives as possible. We love to share our enthusiasm for Essaouira and have some great suggestions ready for you! When we go to Morocco we enjoy to step back in time, read, cook and play with wind and waves.

Why the Owner Chose Essaouira:
We purchased Dar Moulay in December of 1999. It was a misty ramadan evening and walking through the maze we were simply enchanted by the city and its tremendous flair. Dar Moulay struck us an ideal property as it feels European in layout (loads of sunlight and open space - vs. traditional islamic architecture) yet is perfectly located at the crossroad of old medina, harbor and beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
1) Safe, fun, elegant & sunny 2) Location, location, location..: impossible to beat! 3) Great value for money!
