Dar Sana is the perfect retreat to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, yet still being in the heart of the Medina. It is only available exclusively so makes a more peaceful and individual option than a shared riad but still good value, although you will be sharing with Ali and Nino (the two much-loved resident tortoises).

Dar Sana has been rebuilt and restored with great care. The interior designer has thoughtfully given each room a different tone, yet all reflecting the charm and serenity of the Dar.

Located in an excellent position near to the Bab Doukkala mosque, only ten minutes from the souks and the main square, ten minutes from the modern city of Gueliz and within minutes of some of the best restaurants in Marrakech.

Situated in a quiet derb (passageway) in the medina (or old city) with good road access for taxis or parking.

The house is pretty and stylish, built around a central courtyard with a fountain. It is built over two floors and has two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning.

On the ground floor there is a sitting room and a dining room - both having fireplaces for colder winter evenings. There is also a kitchen, guest bathroom and utility room and a large patio area.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with en-suite (showers). There is also a large summer seating area overlooking the patio and with its own fireplace.
