Description from the owner
Three minutes from the souks and five minutes from Essaouira’s beach and fishing port is Dar Rondé, a riad townhouse with rounded walls, Berber doorways, vibrantly coloured stone floors and fireplaces set deep in to soaring white walls. Designed by the architect, Maria Pergay, the house is spread over three floors with two large en-suite bedrooms, one kingsize, one twin, two secluded terraces and a stylish sauna on the top floor. A small garden of palms fills the tiled courtyard circled by glass walls, an entertainment room with traditional beldi ceiling and a salon with long sofas and spacious dining area.
Additional Location Information
Essaouira is world renowned for its arts and Gnawa music. Its 200-year-old medina is a maze of arches and alleyways interspersed with piazzas and café-lined streets. Fruit, vegetables, meats, spices and fish fill the souks, while a vast range of little stores sell china, wood and antiques. Outside the city walls is a lively port where fresh fish is caught daily. The sea offers one of the world’s best spots for windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing.
Other local activities involve: quad biking, mountain biking, camel rides, horse and carriage rides, horse riding, sailing, shopping, eating. The medina is fully pedestrianised but there is car parking outside it. Small taxis are available everywhere and cheap for whizzing back and forth to the beach. Close by to the house is a bread oven, mint tea cafe, herb shop and the souks.
