Dar Beida [The white house] is situated in Morocco, at the back of Essaouiraâ€™s fortified medina with the food markets pretty much on your door step and approximately a 10 minute walk to essaouiraâ€™s long sandy beach. An organic modern living space has been moulded around ancient sandstone columns and thuya wood ceilings and then a mix of eclectic colorful lighting and furnishings has been added, mainly from the 1960â€™s era. Dar Beida serve as an ideal base for exploring the local area, or simply as a means to relax and unwind in unique and magical settings. Lovingly restored and subtly decorated the rooms are spacious yet tranquil, providing a cool retreat from the outside world.
The house is built around a central courtyard and comprimises 4 storeys. The courtyard -commonly known as a patio- with its fountain and the rest area gives the feeling of an oasis right in the middle of the house, an outdoor space that welcomes the visitor in a pleasant and relaxing way. The mosaic made by coloured tiles contrasts with the white walls, an interesting effect that makes a great first impression to the guest. On the ground level there is a library connecting to a chill out room with a fire place.
On the 1st floor there is an open plan fully equipped kitchen/diner at one end, a living space in the middle and two fire places and a moulded bedroom and shower room towards the back. The 2nd floor has two double bedrooms with pod fire places in each. In between the bedrooms there is a curved bathroom with skylight. Dar Beida is an excellent place to relax and enjoy a different version of 1001 Arabian nights. A stylist place where the white walls become an ideal canva for the owners’ eclectic collection of colorful art. The decoration, a mix and match ofÂ Morrocan style and pieces back from 60s and 70s, makes Dar BeidaÂ a place of comfort, peace and relaxation.
