Property description

Situated in a delightful little square, Place Taara, Chez Carole is a delightful, traditional Riad on 3 floors with 2 roof terraces situated in the heart of the Ancient Medina. It has been closed for re-decorating and has just re-opened April 2014
In the house, the ground floor has salon, dining area, kitchen and small toilet. Decor is bright and airy. First floor has one twin-bedded room with a sofa/bed and shower/toilet. Second floor has one twin-bedded room with additional bed and one double bedded room. There is a shared shower/toilet for these 2 rooms. All bedrooms have lots of natural light from windows facing outside. First terrace has a double bedded studio with shower room/toilet. Top terrace has views of the sea, medina all around and hills to the back.
In the square there are 4 restaurants - 2 Moroccan, 1 French and 1 English. You are close to all shops and restaurants - nothing is far in the medina! - and we do have some wonderful restaurants in the medina. The beautiful, long, golden beach and our photogenic port are only about 10 minutes leisurely walk. There you can learn to kite and wind surf, hire body boards, swim, go horse or camel riding, rent a quad bike or, for those who like life a little slower, a sun lounger. There are restaurants along the promenade and the work has almost finished in producing a beautiful corniche the whole length of the beach making it an even more beautiful place to walk.
The port is lovely and colourful and, paired with our beautiful light, is an artists dream. Artists from all over the world come here to paint.

Essaouira is a small walled town on the Atlantic Oceon. It is a World Heritage and Unesco site.. It has a delightful, working port where boats are still hand built and fresh fish comes in several times a day. The beach is clean and safe and goes on for miles. You can even walk to Sidi Kaouki along the beach. There is a more secluded, tho' rocky, north beach. There is an abundance of shops selling beautiful Moroccan clothes and handicrafts and many extremely good restaurants - Moroccan, French, Italian. . There is even an English cafe, La Cantina, which is in the same square as the house. The town is renowned for its' water sports, including kite surfing competitions, original art and the Gnaoua Music Festival in June. Many other music festivals are held throughout the year, including Les Printemps in April and the Andalusian Festival in October.. The Moroccan people in general are very friendly and even more so in Essaouira - the town has a delightful 'laid back' feeling - especially good after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech! There is a local market in nearby villages on most days of the week - Had Draa on Sundays, El Hanchane - Tuesdays, Ida Ogourd - Wednesday, Khemis Meskala- Thursday and Akermoud - Saturdays. Thuya wood goods are a must to purchase and you can watch the artisans at work in many cooperatives as they inlay tables etc. Amazing work. Argan oil is another 'must'- even more beneficial than extra virgin olive oil - and can be purchased for both cuisine and cosmetic use. You can visit local feminine argan cooperatives in the countryside close to Essaouira. If you are lucky enough to see them, the goats up the argan trees are a sight to behold. Car hire is relatively cheap - about 25 euros per day. You can also hire push bikes and mopeds. We also have a house only 25 kms away if you would like a visit to the countryside during your stay..

Other Activities: Kite surfing, wind surfing, camel and horse riding, quad biking
