Dar Dauia is a 200+ year old small family house located in the heart of Chefchaouen’s Old Medina. Like the other traditional houses, its structure is a labyrinth limited to the mountain itself which forces a compacted and irregular construction as a honeycomb in a fascinating architectural swarm.

The space

Today, Dar Dauia is a house with all the necessary comfort in an archaic skeleton. We don’t want anyone to be disappointed during their stay in our house, so there are some indications:

The kitchen is Private and only for the exclusive use of the Hosts.

We have heaters and fans but NO Air Conditioning in the bed rooms. The traditional construction of rock and adobe linked to the mountain with walls of more than 20 cm. thick, allows us to achieve a perfect and natural insulation during winter and summer.

Two of our bedrooms do not have exterior windows. To the aforementioned climatological reasons we must add sound reasons; the proximity to the neighbors and mosques isolates these “cave rooms” from street noise, calls to prayer (the first one is at dawn), neighborhood talk and a long etc. ... and if all this overwhelming logic does not convince you, there are cultural reasons… remember that the bedroom is a place to disconnect and rest and that is only possible by leaving out anything that distracts us from such need.

The house is in the high part of the center of the Medina and you have to climb 63 steps to reach it, but the effort is rewarded with spectacular views of the Medina, the town, the mountains and a huge and exciting sky.

The space is distributed as follows:
Ground Floor (exclusively for guests) it has 1 living room, 3 rooms and 1 bathroom to share.
First Floor: Common terrace. Host’s Private Bedroom and Private kitchen
Second Floor: Common solarium. Host’s Private Studio

Ground floor / guest area
There is a fireplace in the living room, a kettle corner with water and teas and some table games and books.

The Bathroom is divided in two. The W.C. (toilet) in one room and the Shower and Lavatory in a separate room. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, after-shave, hair dryer, heater, towels and a thermostatic shower are all provided.

Room #1 has 2 Double beds for 4 people.
Room #2 has 1 Queen Size bed for 2 people
Room # 3 has 1 double bed for 2 people

Guest access

- Breakfast Included
- WiFi available
- Laundry charge: 25 Dh

Interaction with guests

The hosts are multilingual and live upstairs, so the attention is personalized and uninterrupted.

Other things to note

Chefchaouen deserves a couple of days stay so you can literally get lost in its unique streets and many shops.
It is also very interesting to devote another day visiting Akchour at the Talassemtane National Park, (only a 45 minute drive) to enjoy nature at its purest state… a lasting memory for children and adults.
For the more adventurous, there are trekking routes across the mountains which can last from 1 to 5 days. Guides and lodges available in situ.

Nieves and Ricardo were absolutely amazing. They organized a driver for us, gave us a quick tour of the town and even packed a breakfast for us for our early morning departure. We felt very comfortable and at home at their house. I can not recommend this Airbnb enough! Thanks for the perfect stay

非常感谢Nieves and Ricardo热情周到的服务,让来自中国的四位女孩尽情投入到童话世界中。Ricardo很详细的为我们介绍了舍夫沙万的旅行路线、餐饮、银行地址等。Nieves的早餐很赞,不同味道的果酱、文艺范的餐具,为奔波劳碌的旅行增加了家的温暖。房间不大,但很温馨、干净,床单每天清洗,放心入住吧。

Staying with Nieves and Ricardo was a bright spot on our trip to Morocco. You couldn't ask for better hosts. They took great pains to acclimate us to the area, and fed us the most delicious homemade things!

Nieves And Ricardo User ProfileNieves And Ricardo is a superhost.

We are a Spanish couple who, after travelling the world over, decided to live a simple life in this small Moroccan town. We feel grateful to be able to enjoy this simplicity and when we`ve had enough, we jump on a plane and fly to New York, Tokyo, Delhi, Lima or another crowded place. We have friends all over the world and now, through Airbnb, we can meet more people without leaving our home.
