Dar Louisa, also known as the Owner’s Villa, is a smaller house than Dar Liqama yet no less luxurious. To the front of the house lies an ornate pond-shaped pool, edged with all manner of palms, flowers and trees. A picturesque bridge over the pool invites guests to stroll across, or perhaps dangle their legs over the side and contemplate a swim in its cool waters.
Once behind the antique cedar doors of Dar Louisa’s entrance, the flowering orange trees exude the unmistakable scent of fleur d’orangers, which pervades the air. A cascading blue Marjorelle fountain, reminiscent of a waterfall, makes this a truly elegant space. Guests can find a peaceful corner here for an afternoon’s reading or congregate for a relaxed al fresco meal.
Leading off the courtyard, you’ll discover Dar Louisa’s principal salon with a gorgeous emerald green Zelige fireplace as its centrepiece. On cool nights the fire is lit and guests sit in the intimate half dome alcove facing the fireplace. The beautifully sculptured cedar furniture complements the hand made silk fabric from the Medina’s souk.
Guests will find two exquisite roof terraces that have been designed for outside living. As the evening draws in, the candles are lit and the music begins while guests sink into the cushioned seats, which line the cosy forum of Romanesque alcoves. Here guests can watch the preparation of traditional Moroccan bread in the four au pain, whilst relaxing to the sounds of the gently bubbling fountain and gazing at the magnificent Moroccan night sky. For dinner, fresh salads and hot dishes are brought up from the kitchen and served at the low tables for an unforgettable feast.
Dar Louisa’s master suite has three rooms on the first floor: a king size bedroom with an elevated bed that lies beneath an intricate antique window, a private salon with a fireplace and semi-dome alcove with stunning views through its slit windows. The luxurious bathroom has a large fireplace facing the exquisite dome-covered bath, where the circular panes cast an alluring light on its aubergine surface.
The four remaining premium bedrooms feature corner fireplaces, en-suite bathrooms with separate shower and private garden terraces. All bedrooms feature fabrics from the Medina’s souk made by hand from a traditional tram. Designed by the owner and created at Caverne de Tissage, the stunning mix of colours integrates silk, wool and velour. Dar Louisa’s décor is exotic yet soft and soothing to the senses with luxurious textiles specially chosen for their quality and comfort.
Dar Louisa has a private swimming pool and hot tub within its walls, and its guests share the facilities of the Hammam and tennis court with the main villa.
