The space

DarZahia can offer bed and breakfast, one or few rooms for one or few nights. This is a guest house where you are staying with hosts, but you can also book the whole, exclusively for you. DarZahia is located in the liveliest and warmest part of the medina, nearby Derb Chrif and Ferq Lahbabat, five minutes walk from the souks. It is nestled in a blind alley to a dead end of the little town of Taroudant. It welcomes you with elegance and sobriety. Its style and design draw inspiration from Amazigh traditional house. Built in earth, it is soft to the eye and to the touch, it is a peaceful place that products on its visitors an extraordinary sensation of quietness and peace. Its thick adobe walls shelter a lush garden and home is naturally fresh in summer and warm in winter. DarZahia offers its guests a true well-being stay in Taroudant.

There are just 4 bedrooms; two on the ground floor with private ensuite shower room, and two on the first floor that share a shower. The upper rooms also have small private terraces. The rooms all have 140cm double beds and dresser and the bathroom walls are covered in polished tadelakt. Please note that there are no toilet facilities in any of the rooms but are just outside on both levels

There is a lovely roof terrace with potted plants and shaded areas to get out of the sun.

The courtyard is intensely planted and the scent of jasmine and birdsong give a peaceful feel. There are places to curl up with a book and small plunge pool if you want to cool down.

Dinner can be arranged at the riad (around 20€pp) and the staff with happily book guides for Medina tours, hammam visits or excursions further afield

1st Floor Double with Shared Bathroom
The 2 first floor rooms overlook the wild yet tame garden of DarZahia from their private terraces. These 2 rooms share a shower bathroom, which is topped by a traditional cay brick dome inlaid with blue glass cabochons, a shaped polished gemstone, that filters the light. The walls of the bathroom are covered with a silk white tadelakt as is the traditional building style of Morocco.
The 1st floor rooms share a salon with large cushioned pergola and separate seating area looking down from its terrace over the garden and pool.

Ground Floor Double with Ensuite
The 2 ground floor rooms at Dar Zahia open onto the garden and pool and have been created in a simple Berber style but with nice contemporary furnishings and superior beds. The two ground floor rooms have ensuite showers and share a w.c close to them.

Dar Zahia is a very special place, a little piece of heaven situated in the medina in Taroudant. The house a lovingly restored Moroccan jewel, is beautifully decorated with hand selected treasures and beautiful pieces of art and a garden that makes the space just that bit more special. This is a space not designed for people who enjoy mass tourism and impersonal, characterless rooms. At Dar Zahia you feel like you are part of the family. Breakfast is delicious and generous and served by the friendly staff. Situated in the heart of the medina, this is the perfect space to go exploring but with the added benefit of being quiet and tranquil. In a nutshell, we will definitely be back. And if you are lucky enough to meet Marc and Zahia on one of your visits, all the better.

Absolutely Perfect. The best we have stayed in. All the information was perfect & really helpful. Sana & Adul were both charming & gracious giving us all the help they could during our stay. Sana took us into the souk to look for a silversmith and Adil took us to the best barber. The Riad is perfect. Comfortable, interesting with excellent food a total refuge after days of traveling, a total oasis! Really special.

What a haven this place is!! I wish we had had a few days to spend there just relaxing and drinking Zahia's delicious verbena tea! We had a magical dinner experience and the food was all excellent. We even ran into Marc and Zahia the next night in Marrakech and they were so helpful showing us their favourite sandwich shop! The only problem was that the washroom is not in the room... even reading the page now I don't see that it mentions that. It probably wouldn't be too bad for most people to walk down the hall but my husband and I are very light sleepers so it meant neither of us got much sleep because the sound of the other person leaving the room, letting light in, etc woke the other. But if we are ever in Taroudant again, I'd love to book us two rooms so we can each get sleep and still enjoy this amazing place -- truly it's like living in a dream there!

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour chez Zahia et Marc. Ce fut au delà de nos attentes. Marc et Zahia nous ont fait partager leur amour du Maroc et nous ont fait vivre des moments inoubliables à la rencontre des familles berbères. Le personnel de Dar Zahia était au petit soin. Ce fut un réel plaisir de gouter la cuisine de Sana dans un cadre aussi paisible et hors du temps. Le lieu est décoré avec goût et sensibilité (ouvrez grand les yeux pour découvrir tous les détails ...) Nous reviendrons pour profiter des bains de soleil, du jardin et du bassin de nage. A très bientôt ;-)
