We spent 5 nights at the Dar el Moualim and we had a wonderful stay. Paquita, the owner, was very helpful and emailed us numerous times before we arrived to answer all of our questions. We also had the good fortune to met her and her husband, Oscar, during our stay and both are very lovely people. The two bedroom... More
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Two apartments for 4 people and one suite for 2, located in the ancient medina of Chefchaouen, in the “Al-Andalus” area, five minutes from Uta Hammam Square and close to one of the entrances to the medina, Bab El Souk. All the furniture and decoration in the house have been attended to every single detail, trying to offer the best Chaouen traditional products, and looking for the best craftsmen who toil in their small and traditional shops. The beds have the best mattresses, with feather duvets and bed linen 100% cotton.Maybe the views of the mountains and the medina, that the client in the suite can enjoy, are one of the best attractions of “Dar el Moualim”, an authentic balcony to the berebere tradition and most important to the universal language of the authentic feelings and sensations. The apartment or suite is rented with a cleaning service each four days included. This service includes changing of sheets and towels. Moreover, the guests can count on the laundry included in the price. You can live a unique experience, living in an authentic house in the ancient medina in Chaouen. We wish you a complete experience, authentic and mainly sustainable. It should to be respectful with the Chaouen cultural and natural environment. Dar el Moualim is not a usual business, but a local development project, which provides two direct jobs and that promotes the protection of the medina, which is suffering too many inappropriate restorations. The house renovation has tried to be as much orthodox as possible, following the tradition in the facades, and in the inner decoration and furniture, but introducing some comforts to improve the stay and the rest of the guests. We wish to offer to the independent, sensitive and cultured traveller a kaleidoscope of authentic experiences inside the heart of a traditional Chaouen neighbourhood. Chaouen has a sweet light, but a harsh climate, with cold nights and wet buildings. We must advice this, though our apartments are prepared to fight against these eventualities (feather duvets, plenty hot water, dehumidifier, heaters and also fire-place in the two bedrooms apartment). During spring season the apartments are fresh and the suite (a bit hotter) is furnished with air-conditioning equipment. The Chaouen medina has big slopes, and to reach our apartments we have to climb a narrow street with steps (about 50 m) as many others in the medina. This small effort will bring us the award of peaceful nights and astonishing views from the private terrace of the suite. Dar el Moualim and its environment is a window to a different world and our best wish is to show it to sensitive travellers. For this reason, if you really wish to be hosted in Dar el Moualim you should remember our proposal and decide if Dar el Moualim suits to your interest. We firmly ask to those tourists not very sensitive to the culture and the heritage, and also those who depend of high level of consumerism and comfort not to book with us. We recommend our lodgement to independent travellers, with some knowledge about Morocco and Chefchaouen, with no physical impediments to step up to Dar el Moualim, which is done in about 10 minutes from the closest parking area. ... more less
