“What a lovely place to stay”

Lovely clean spacious holiday Villa.

Close enough to the medina and the new town to be convenient but far enough away to feel relaxed when you've had enough.

We had breakfast provided every day which was a bargain, but wasn't compulsory and we had the evening meals a couple of times too which were excellent.

It isn't air conditioned because it doesn't need to be. We were there in the height of summer and there was a constant breeze blowing day and night. Open the right combination of windows and there's your air conditioning right there.

A great holiday, we'd definitely go there again.

“A beautiful and comfortable house ”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Absolutely wonderful stay at Dar Doughri, loved it so much that we are already making plans again to stay there.Fiona helped us before and after we got to Essaouira, with just about everything from what to wear, currency exchange, transport and not to forget helping to accommodate my two granddaughters with a cot and extra mattress in the master bedroom,.. All rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable, loved the roof terrace when playing monopoly and cards sipping mint tea and eating yummy Moroccan pastries. We were given towels whenever needed, the house was kept clean and tidy, the rooms are bigger then the pics, clean traditional bathrooms. The biggest asset is Karima in the house..a wonderful cook and helped us in all we needed..please try her specialty Lamb with onions and raisons.. My 4 year old granddaughter and 8 month granddaughter loved her..Fouad was always present to help us out..he was only a text away..I will say that if you have any age of children and want to go to Essaouira.. Then Dar Doughri is the best place to stay..Thank you once again Fiona for having us at your beautiful home in Essaouira.

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed over the Christmas period for four nights and loved our stay. We had a long day travelling getting there and feeling tired arrived late in the evening to a very warm welcome by Fouad and a delicious supper waiting for us beautifully cooked by Karima.. We immediately relaxed. The house was perfect for us and we liked that it was situated outside the Medina as the area is quieter and within easy walking distance from the sea, harbour and Medina. Fiona was a great help in organising our stay and made our arrangements very easy. I would love to return, next time for longer.

“spacious house, traditionally decorated”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

we loved the house, it was very spacious giving all of the party space when they needed it to relax. God send that there is wifi that works perfectly! Terrace is gorgeous and the views and sounds never ceased to amaze me! We loved having log fires at night (one of the main reasons we picked this house). Location is perfect, just outside the medina (5min) to give you peace and 10 minute walk to the beach
Karmina is a wonderful maid- although she speaks very little English she cooks amazing food and its always beautifully presented and plenty of it; we thought it was wonderful that what we didn't eat got boxed up for us in the fridge should we be peckish later.
The support we had from the house owner prior to our arrival was fantastic, really going out of her way to answer our queries and ensure we had a wonderful stay.
The only negative is that the house is a little tired, although i liked the character of it,. The towels do need replacing, some of them were threadbare.

“Our stay was perfect! We enjoyed every minute at Dar Doughri!”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The house was exactly as we expected, and we had plenty of room for all five of us at the house. It was located within walking distance of the media and the house manager was there to meet us and let us in.
We had a dinner and breakfast prepared for us and it was amazing and so much food. We had a wonderful experience and we would stay again.
