About the Property

4 Double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite); sleeps 8

Dar Zette is a beautiful & tranquil house hidden away in the heart of the 18th century medina. Recently restored to combine modern comforts with Moroccan tradition, it has the added advantage of a large pretty courtyard complete with fountain. 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 4 floors, the house allows much privacy for reading and sunbathing. Kilim covered armchairs, hand-painted furniture, old chandeliers and antique rugs throughout, Dar Zette has it all.
