Dar Zette is a beautiful & tranquil house, combining modern and traditional styles, hidden away in the heart of the 18th century medina. Perfectly situated for the bustling souks selling spices, carpets, jewelled slippers & Thuya wood boxes with cafes and restaurants nearby and the wide sandy beach of Essaouira only a minute away.
Surrounding the open courtyard on two sides, the house offers light and peace. The wide folding doors of the salon allow the ground floor rooms and courtyard to become as one – wonderful by candlelight in the evening. Built on 3 floors with a further sun terrace, the house allows much privacy for reading and sunbathing. Kilim covered armchairs, hand-painted furniture, old chandeliers and antique rugs throughout, Dar Zette has much to entice.
Please note that there are hard surfaces and steep stairs which, combined with the nature of the sleeping accommodation, mean the property is not really suitable for families with young children.

A treasure in the Médina
Beautifully decorated home, cozy with fireplace and well stocked. We’d definitely stay there again! Great location, close to beach and easy to access.
And we'd be delighted to have you again! Glad you had a Happy New Year with your family.
Everything about this riad is wonderful.
Our adult family of six had the most amazing time at this riad. The accommodation was clean, spacious and offered lots of gathering spaces as well as special get away nooks.
The location is perfect within the medina but close to get out to beach and day trips.
All communication and questions were answered quickly by hosts Ruth and Arnold. Information provided by hosts was very helpful and time efficient when searching for places to eat. Rachid was also there when we needed.
All in all. I can not recommend this riad highly enough. Thank you Ruth and Arnold for creating such a special time and place for our family to be together.

Delighted that we could help make your special occasion a memorable one!
Relaxing stay in a beautifully furnished and comfortable riad
We were a three generation family group aged 4 to 70. This riad met our needs perfectly as there were plenty of bathrooms and separate terraced sitting room area outside the various sleeping areas. The riad has been tastefully furnished and decorated and had a lovely atmosphere. The roof terrace was fabulous with plenty of comfy loungers for everyone. Rachid the manager and Saadia, the cook housekeeper looked after us very well, with Saadia cooking a lovely pancake breakfast for us every morning for a very reasonable price. The location of the riad was very convenient and much easier to find than others we had stayed in.
Lovely property, very calming.
The property was typical Moroccan, beautifully decorated. Kitchen well equipped and beds comfortable. Lots of places to sit and relax throughout the house. Loved the way you could step out of the house into the busy market streets where you could explore all the little alley ways.
Provision of a safe box in the building would be beneficial to keep valuables in.
Thanks for your suggestion which we will take on board. Glad you liked the house and Essaouira.
The house was exactly as the description and pictures provided. It was very spacious and had everything that we required. The location was perfect as we were not toofar from the main square but still very quiet inside the house. Also the house is a 10 minute walk from the beach so we were able to walk down and soak up the sun
The facilities were very good, especially with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms plus the added bonus of a private roof terrace.
The property was very clean and the lady who came to clean was very polite and helpful, as was Rachid the manager who was very helpful and saw that we had everything that we needed.
The owners were very quick to respond and we were very looked after by Rachid.
I would highly recommend this property as essaouira is the perfect place to go and relax and enjoy the beach and sights
all the nearby restaurants served very good food and the pancakes are to die for, it was very easy to obtain halal meat for the family as we cooked some meals while we were there and also very easy to walk down to the market to buy fruit, vegetabes and groceries.
It's also very good for shopping and the prices are reasonable for gifts, definitely buy from here if you re heading to marrakech
all in all we will definitely be back to essaouira and when we do we will book this property again
Delighted you had a great holiday. We look forward to welcoming you again in Dar Zette.
This property was perfect for our stay. Everything was so close: the fishing port; a food market; souks full of interesting Moroccan souvenirs and a lovely expansive beach. The property was beautifully decorated and, included a roof terrace. We will return.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
Essaouira offers something for everyone. The climate is semi-tropical staying warm and balmy throughout the winter. A UNESCO world heritage listed city, Essaouira has a relaxed laid-back atmosphere where you can enjoy the hubub of the souk, the bustle of the busy port with its fish market, the romance of a walk along the ramparts at sunset or exploring the streets and hidden passageways of this special town.
Other Activities: small traditional port, souks, cooking & eating, hammams, historic sites, bird watching, camel riding, land yatching, kite surfing, 4x4 off roading and quad biking.
