About Dar Mellah

Dar Mellah is available for short or long term let for two people on a self catering basis. Two large Bunkettes are available in the saloon that are easily converted into a 3rd/4th beds for guests.

The house Manager Sandra is on hand to escort you to Dar Mellah on arrival, to book taxis from anywhere in Morocco and give advice on restaurants and excursions throughout your stay.

Accommodation Information

The flat consists of one double bedroom with a beautiful hand crafted four poster bed, a large well equipped kitchen, shower room with traditional tadelakt shower, and Moroccan saloon. It is furnished with traditional hand crafted Moroccan furniture, Berber carpets and lamps to make your stay at Dar Mellah a truly authentic Moroccan experience.
The roof terrace was fully redecorated and refurbished in January 2012 and provides a perfect private space for sunbathing or simply relaxing in an outdoor space.

Location Information

Being within the heart of the Medina, Dar Mellah we’re ideally located as a base to explore the many shops, markets, restaurants and cafés on offer. If you’d rather cook for yourself, you can find all sorts of fresh produce, meat, fish, and spices just a two minute walk away.

It is only a five minute walk from the apartment to the beach. Essaouira beach is famous for its windsurfing, surfing and kite-boarding. Horse and camel riding is also on offer as is the opportunity to hire quad bikes. However if this is too energetic, then you could just soak up the sun on the mile after mile of beautiful beach. Cafes and bars are sprinkled along the beach and sun beds can be hired in a variety of spots.

If the beach isn’t relaxing enough, though, try the local Hammam Babst, (a two minute walk away) that was used by Orson Wells for his 1952 film Othello. Here you can experience a traditional Moroccan Hammam with a traditional steam, massage and rub down. An experience you will never forget.

Bike and Car hire is available from Bab Marrakech, and excursions can be arranged to visit the local olive oil co-operative at Tidzi or the Sunday market at Hedra.

Cancellation Policy
