Looking for something a bit more modern, young but still Moroccan? "Musk" room might be the right place for you then!
"Musk" was inspired by WASSILY KANDINSKY painting "Farbstudie Quadrate", 1913. It is a mixture of textures, styles and cultures. Inspired by a great Russian artist, decorated in "tadelakt" (traditional Moroccan lime-based plaster), Berber carpet, Moroccan silk blanket and curtains from the weaving workshop just around the corner. It is furnished with traditional Moroccan mosaic table, metal and glass wardrobe and director's chairs from 1982 gives you a modern and young approach to a Moroccan style.
Servicios y zonas comunes
It is great for people who enjoy their privacy but if you want to gather with your fellow travellers - shared dining area, lounge and terrace are perfect for that. What could be better than sitting cosily next to the fireplace, sharing a cuppa and your travelling stories?

Otros aspectos destacables
The house is very easy to find. If you are at Bab Doukala (one of the entrances to medina) and facing the inside of medina , turn left into the first street (Rue Chbanate) and follow the street for about 500 meters until you see a wonderful shop "Mashi Mushkili" on your left, Dar Sabon is right in front of it.
CHECK IN AFTER 22:30 IS EXTRA 20 EUROS.
Dar Sabon is a brand new house, the owner put all the heart into decorating it and making it as homely as possible. It would be very appreciated if guests would respect the house and their fellow neighbors. Basically - feel like at home but don't forget that you are a guest and treat the others the way you want to be treated.

I discovered Morocco 12 years ago, while travelling around Europe. It wasn't exactly the love from the first sight. In fact, it took me a good week of traveling from city to city from village to village in order to warm up towards this mad land. Keep in mind that 12 years ago it was not as popular tourist destination as it is now. Every day disappointed, harassed, pointed at and even tried to be bought and traded for camels and a piece of land (my friend was quite tempted to accept the offer), I had enough. Just wanted to leave and never come back. Essaouira was the last try... I am not exactly sure what happened then but from the moment I put my backpack on Essaouira's land my life changed. It was the same country I disliked so much but the wind in my ears, the clear blue sky, the horizon of the ocean, the smell of fish, wood and salt left a huge mark in my heart. Essaouira became my dream. Why? The only answer I can think of is - the freedom. The freedom to be who you are, to do what you want, to feel the wind in your hair, to hear the seagulls, to wake up and see a clear blue sky, to have the sunshine every day and most importantly - to share the love for this beautiful country with the others, just as the locals share it with me. What can be the better way to do that than have a little bed&breakfast?
Sadly, my Moroccan chapter is over for some time. I decided to take a break and to travel The World for a year or two. Fortunately a new chapter for Fatimzahra just started. Let me tell you about her. I met this young woman who, to be honest, was very shy and quiet but had this obvious power in her eyes. She started working for me. As the time passed she has shined more and more. Her managing skills, her intelligence, and her European work ethic started to show. She became my biggest helper and teacher of Moroccan culture and how to survive in this men’s world. I contributed my bit too. I signed her for English classes, got a laptop and started teaching her. I had never met anyone else being so hungry for knowledge, so quick to learn. She is wonderful! And I believe that developing and teaching her is even a bigger achievement than Dar Sabon itself. So yes, now she is in charge of Dar Sabon and I help her with the emails. Yes, her English is not great. But she tries. She speaks Classic Arabic, Moroccan Arabic, Berber, French and she can manage in English. Impressive, huh? How many languages do we speak?
I could not be happier that Dar Sabon remained as a house where everyone is more than welcome, where the stories can be shared, where questions can be answered. Essaouira was my home. I am glad Dar Sabon is still yours.
