Your rental house in Marrakech

Dar Essattatia and Dar al Mandar are two guesthouses rented exclusively for stays of 3 nights minimum. They are located in the medina of Marrakech, 6 minutes walk from each other, in the same neighborhood.

Our activity started in 2005, first with Dar Essattatia, then in 2012 with Dar al Mandar. More than just rental houses, the soul of these two dars lies in the fact that we put human relations first.  

An experienced team: Each of us plays a precise role according to his skills with the only aim of accompanying the customer and helping him to spend the best possible stay. The reception is ensured by our Intendant, Mostapha who is part of the team since the beginning.

The owners live in France.
Thierry is in charge of the decoration of the houses and their enhancement by the communication.
Philippe takes care of the administrative part and helps you to prepare your stay.

Mostapha takes over once you are on site. He will take care of you, you can ask him all kinds of questions, he will help you as much as he can.
Zakia and Wafa are two experienced cooks who will make you discover the traditional Moroccan cuisine.

A family vacation without having to worry about shopping or cleaning.


Both of them work on the same principle. They are both rented in their entirety, always exclusively, with the presence of a housekeeper who takes care of the shopping, cooking and cleaning.

Ideal for sharing pleasant moments with family or friends.

Moroccan hospitality comes to life through the people you meet.

Here are three extraordinary people.

Zakia, cuisinière et gouvernante de Dar Essattatia

Zakia is a sweet and very discreet person.

She started with us in 2012 at Dar al Mandar and is now in charge of Dar Essattatia replacing Khadija who retired.

Zakia has very good references, as she was a chef de rang in big hotels in Marrakech before joining our team.

Her cooking is in her image.

Zakia is unanimously appreciated by our customers. The guestbook is full of favorable comments about her.  So, you just have to let her spoil you. Such is her pleasure.

Mostapha, conseiller et assistant des riad Dar Al Mandar et Dar Essattatia

Mostapha is the one who manages your transfer from the airport to the house, no matter what time you arrive. He is the first person in our team that you will meet.

Mostapha has been working with us for many years, managing both the clients' wishes and the general housekeeping. He has supervised the work of the houses since their acquisition. He is therefore in a position to explain their functioning.

He speaks very good French and also gets by in English.

You can count on him to give you advice in terms of car rental or excursions. He will be able to put you in touch with the right people. On the other hand, he should not be used as a guide, it is forbidden by the Moroccan authorities.

He will be able to give you landmarks to direct you in the medina and will indicate you the good addresses and those to be avoided.

His phone number will be given to you. At any time of the day you can call him.

A little advice, if you wish, invite him at home in the evening (at the time of the aperitif for example), he will be delighted to make with you the debriefing of the day and will lavish you with his advice for the following day.
You will be able to ask him all the questions you want. Be careful, Mostapha does not drink alcohol.

Wafa, cuisinière et gouvernante de Dar Al Mandar

Wafa is responsible for Dar al Mandar.

Married and a mother, Wafa is an experienced, discreet and efficient person.

Although she is new to the team, we already have very good feedback about her cooking and her kindness with the customers.

Don't hesitate to ask her to prepare her Moroccan gastronomic specialties for you, she will be delighted to make you happy.

The right questions to ask before booking a rental to avoid unpleasant surprises. The price should not always be the first criterion of choice.

1. Everything is true

The rental agreement, the description of the house, the equipment, the photos published on the website and the blog are the reflection of reality. The file provided is very complete.

2. The whole house

The exclusivity of the house is guaranteed. We do not rent by the room. It is the assurance to spend a stay with family or friends as if you were at home.

3. We'll come get you

Airport to home transfer: You will be met at the airport with a sign with your name on it. We'll pick you up at the airport or at a meeting point and help you get settled at home whatever the arrival time.  
You will also avoid unpleasant surprises with a cab driver who does not know the area or who applies exorbitant night rates. This airport-home transfer is included in the price of the rental.

4. The local cuisine

The cuisine is homemade with fresh products bought at the market the same day. The dishes are prepared and cooked on the spot.

5. The household

Cleaning is included. No extra charge. The Moms are really on vacation.

6. Listening to you

The staff on site speaks and understands French, at least one of them also speaks English. In addition, your Arabic vocabulary will be enriched through sumptuous cultural exchanges with the staff on site. These people are present, at your service and are discreet.

7. Easy to access

The house is easily accessible on foot, close to a parking lot, a cab stand, a bus stop, shops including a grocery store open at least late in the evening. Maps of the city are available. The neighborhood is scouted on the day of arrival or at the latest the morning after.

8. Calendar at your disposal

The reservation calendar is regularly updated and easily consultable.

9. Always listening to you

The owner is easily reachable and the answers to questions are fast.The steward will be your contact once on site.The whatsapp application is very useful to communicate in Morocco.

10. Our customers are delighted

The comments of our customers, the guestbook: On the sites Abritel-Homeway, or AirBNB, Trip Advisor we have more than 94 positive comments on one and a note of 5/5 on the other. These allow us to be located among the first in our category when searching by this sorting criteria. The comments are written and published by the customers themselves. We are happy to have you as part of our success.

We picked Dar al Mandar, both because of the nice interior, but also the unique experience of having a cook. Of our 7 nights there, our gracious cook Wafa cooked dinner 6 nights, based on a discussion the day before of what to prepare. We usually went with the default 7 PM time. We didn't have to worry about transit time to/from a restaurant, uncertain quality or price, or slow service. Each night we'd have mint tea, fresh bread, several appetizer/entrees, a great Moroccan main, and a dessert. What's more, we could watch and learn how to make them -- built-in cooking classes! Of course she'd make breakfast each day but with less variation. We very much enjoyed this arrangement (note there is a daily charge for the food). Since we had another 8 days in Morocco after Marrakech, we didn't worry what we might be missing at restaurants. Mustapha was immensely helpful in getting oriented, learning about culture and language, and providing any guidance we needed. The Dar itself is beautifully decorated and comfortable. While the Dar is on the north of the Medina, it's close enough to walk to the center and to a taxi when you need to go all the way to the other side or outside of the medina. The many cats in the streets were always amusing, too.

What a wonderful stay we have had here in Marrakech ! This house is so beautiful and confortable. We love that every corner there’s a lovely surprise. And it’s been so fun to be right in the middle of the medina. A very, very special thank you to Mostapha and Wafa. The amazing Maroccan meals that Wafa prepared for us have been appreciated ! We come to love the food here ! Wafa, thank you for your smiles, and kindness, and your graciousness as well ! Mostapha, we couldn’t have asked for a bettet host ! Thank you for your smile and constant cheerfulness, as well as your good advice and constant aid. Shoukran.
