The douiria, the intimacy of a small private house

Traditionally, a douiria is the living quarters of the house owner, designed to receive visitors other than relatives. These private apartments usually have a street entrance independent from the access to the riad. It also communicates with the main riad.

The douiria provides accommodation for 4 persons. It has 2 rooms —Moucharabieh and Sabaa—, a lounge and a private terrace.

The Moucharabieh room possesses a superb alcove in moucharabieh overhanging the lounge. It is the ideal room for those who want to hide, rest, dream or read on the couch encased in the alcove.

The Sabaa room (a room in “sabaa” means a room overhanging an alley) is impregnated by the presence of a rare chest of the 19th century coming from a coranic school. It is also decorated with souvenirs from a journey to Djenne, in Mali, illustrating the relationship between the Maghreb and the Sahel.

The vast lounge, with its felted and colonial atmosphere, is opened to the sky in summer by a generous douaya. In winter, with its b’hou and the open hearth, it becomes a genuinely welcoming place, ideal for cocooning. The private terrace offers a superb view on the Koutoubia and the Atlas. A Berber tent and a “menzeh” are pleasant places for relaxing and for a candlelight dinner with friends. In summer the meneh is refreshed by misting and in winter  it benefits from added heating allowing to have dinner at night.
