Dar L’Oussia is just the perfect place to experience Essaouira and all it has to offer. Very centrally located, the riad is right next to the entrance of the medina and the gate towards the ocean. So on one side you can enjoy the easy access to the historical centre, with all the exotic and vibrant souks, explore the big choice of restaurants and shops and on the other side you are at just 2 minutes from the long sandy beach where you can go for long walks and connect with nature and enjoy the beach life.
Dar L’Oussia will be your safe haven from where you can be independent, explore with freedom and ease the magic of this place. This traditional Riad has been fully renovated and restyled making it a comfortable, stylish and artful place. The friendly staff will make their maximum to make you feel at home during your stay. Each room is individually decorated with an artful Moroccan touch and much love.
