When it comes to Moroccan boltholes, they don't come much better placed, or more well rehearsed in hospitality, than the charming Dar Lalla F'dila. Set in the heart of the old city, you'll find architectural delights at every turn, with traditional Moroccan elements woven into the interior decor alongside up-to-date conveniences. From the prettily painted ceramic tiles that blanket the beautiful patio, to the Berber rugs that grace the guest bedrooms, the devil's in the detail at this 19th-century douiria.
Follow in the footsteps of Jospehine Baker, who frequented this safe haven over the Second World War, as you relax out on the terrace overlooking the buzzing souks and Atlas Mountains. There's a small pool up here too - perfect for a calming dip after an afternoon of souvenir shopping, perhaps. If you've more free time to spare, indulge with a massage or revitalise with some time in the hammam, before tucking into a dining menu filled with tradition and authenticity - from the succulent tagines straight through to the Essaouira shrimp soup. Rooms envelop all the Moroccan charms you'd expect, and come complete with generously sized showers in their en-suite bathrooms.
