Dar el Moualim, Suite for two.

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Sidi Bouchouka, Chauen, Tánger-Tetuán, Morocco

Suite for two (with a private terrace with the best views over the medina) located in an old house in the Chaoueni medina.
You can enjoy Chaouen authenticity in a very quiet street, that will make you rest and sleep without noises.

The Space

The house has been renovated following the traditional architectural style. We have try to decorate it in a simply way, suitable to the environment, but with all the elements that make a house to be comfortable. The suite has one double room, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and a private terrace with an astonishing view over the medina and the mountains around Chaouen.

Guest Access

We think that good sleeping is the first requirement that our clients will make us, for this reason our beds have the best mattress of the offer, with two different pillows (more and less thick); feather duvets to fight against the cold winter nights and 100% cotton bed linen and in summer time the covers are made of Hayeks (typical pieces of white cotton material that women used to wear in Northern Morocco).
The kitchenettes are good to prepare breakfasts or even light meals, with gas cooker and electric oven and the most important kitchen tools.
Mohamed, the manager, can help you whatever you may need.

Interaction with Guests

The person who get in touch with guests once in Chaouen is Mohamed el Mamouni. He is a very nice and helpful person, and moreover, just in case you may need, he is a nurse.
If the guest likes a total independence, Mohamed will not disturb, but his telephone number is always on.

The Neighborhood

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).

Other Things to Note

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. During spring season the suite 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.

  • Our stay in Chefchaouen was great! The apartment is super cute and cozy, in a great location at the top of the hill overlooking the Medina. The balcony/terrace at the top provides a *beautiful* view of the Medina and the mountains, and is in a perfect location to catch sunset off to the right side. We stayed in early March, so the apartment was cold at night, but there were plenty of blankets and two space heaters worked perfectly to warm the place up. We enjoyed our time in Chaouen and would recommend this place to future visitors!

  • Great stay in Chauen! The appartment is very well located (you should like climbing stairs though) and very pretty. There are a heater and a huge blanket so no fear for the cold ;) Lovely terrace with a great view. Highly recommended!

  • This is a great little apartment, really cosy with a roof terrace looking across the mountains. Beautiful situation, right at the top of the Medina so lots of steps to climb, very good for the regime! All very clean and nice, would have been nice to have a little BBQ on the terrace but don't know if that's allowed? Really enjoyed our stay here, simple but charming!

  • L'appartement est très bien situé au coeur de la médina de Chefchauen, à quelques minutes de la place principales, des boutiques et restaurants. Cet endroit est très agréable et bien décoré dans la tradition marocaine. Je vous le recommande vivement!

Hola, soy de Ceuta, una ciudad española situada en el norte de Africa, y bañada por el mar, casi como una isla. Su ambiente marino es estupendo. Me gusta viajar y recorrer lugares naturales, sin aglomeraciones ni de personas ni de edificios. Sobre todo me gusta disfrutar de la naturaleza, sentirla y contemplarla. Siempre estupendamente acompañada por mi marido Oscar y mis dos perros Agrón y Amán. Vivimos a una hora y media aproximadamente de Chefchaouen, y durante los fines de semana, además de atender los apartamentos, hacemos excursiones por las montañas que rodean al pueblo. Si quieres alguna recomendación al respecto, y tengo la respuesta, estaré encantada de ayudar, además, hemos escrito la primera guía de naturaleza y excursiones del Parque Nacional de Talassemtane en Chaouen.
