Essaouira apartment description

Tifinaghs Dar is an original Berber fishermen house and has been tastefully renovated in the Moroccan style to give four spacious self-catering apartments. Each one has a spectacular view over the sandy beach with its traditional blue painted fishing boats and beyond down the coast of Africa. Each apartment has been equipped carefully to give you an easy and relaxed self-catering holiday. Each apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and comfortable salon.

The delight of this village is its old fashioned atmosphere which mixes the true ethnic Africa with hints of Europe and the sixties, its quaint pathways, steps leading down to sea and the numerous restaurants and cafes. There are also shops, post-office, chemist and internet cafes. Regular buses or taxis to Agadir with the airport not far means more holiday time for you. A long-standing welcome to foreigners gives the village a specially cheerful and relaxed feeling. This is a truly romantic location as you sit watching the sun going down fanned by a gentle breeze from the Atlantic Ocean. Taghazout has a whole year round perfect temperate climate with an average of 77°F in winter and 82° in the summer.

Dar Tiffinagh has it's own private front door with each of the four self-catering apartments with their own front door but with adjoining staircase - so if you want to rent the whole lot and have a great time with family and friends then this is ideal.

                            Hi Rosalind, Just sending a quick email to let you know that we had an amazing time in Taghazout and 24hours back in England rain and we are ready to go back again! The apartment was perfect and the view was stunning. It was incredibly clean but the location was unbelieveable with an amazing view out onto the ocean as well as allowing easy access to the beach. Thankyou so much for all the help you gave us as well as Mohamed who was truly amazing, bending over backwards to make things easy for us and even showing us how to make a tagine! We all, needless to say, fell in love with his cooking and him in general. Thankyou so much to both of you for giving us such an unforgettable holiday. Many thanks Patrick

                            Lovely apartment, surprisingly spacious with very well equipped kitchen. Mohamed and Mustapha very helpful. Only niggle is that hadn't realised that Shems doesn't have a balcony (the other 3 do) which would have been useful with a small child when stuck inside. Wasn't too much of a problem though as weren't at home much. Lovely place and would highly recommend

                            We had such a great holiday in Taghazout. The apartment was lovely and the manager was always on hand and so friendly, and made us feel very welcome and well looked after. Having the airport transfers made our stay even better. This is the second time I have been to Taghazout and I love the little town, the beaches are great for surfing or just relaxing and the surrounding area is beautiful. We hope to be back again soon!

                            We had been to Taghazout twice before but not in such a nice apartment as this one. Aside from the central position and sea views, it was lovely and spacious with an appealing open plan kitchen/living area, designed in a Moroccan style. Mohammed and 'Mr Fantastic' were really fab in the way they looked after us - they are obviously well respected locally and helped us in ensuring we always had the best deals with surf hire and that we didn't have to pay for the parking! Lovely friendly people. I travelled with my wife and two teenagers, and everyone loved it. It was a pleasure to deal with Rosalind at the booking stage and also managed to see two of her other apartments in the same house whilst we were there, which were both fab. From my past experience with Taghazout these apartments really represent good value for money and there's no doubt that when we next return to Taghazout we will be booking one of these. I travel a lot for both leisure and business and would highly recommend these properties should you wish to spend some time in the surfy yet authentic fishing village of Taghazout.

                            Me and a couple of friends were fascinated!! The aparment was great and comfortable. It is just a minute away from the beach and you can watch the fisherboats during breakfast. The staff was really friendly and helpful in all situation. we are looking forward to our next stay :) only negative aspect: the pic up service didn't worked so well. But there are plenty of taxis waiting for you at the airport :)

                            Owner response: What a shame about the pick-up - the mini bus waited for you but unfortunately you had left your contact details behind and were unable to inform us of the changed arrival time - I am sorry that it ended up more expensive for you. Our pick-up service with the super-market visit is second to none! Looking forward to your next visit. Best wishes Rosalind

                            Enjoyed every minute of our holiday-the appartment was absolutley great! Kitchen and other facilities were spotless and had all listed items. Rosalind and Mohammed are such nice people and made our stay extra special. I can recommend this place a 100%, my advise is to rent a car (Mohammeds Carrental -Taghazout Surf Cars) and drive to Paradise Valley- absoloutley breathtaking! For Surfboardrental ask Mohammed too- he can get you great deals! Foodwise- you should try the restaurants L´auberge, Original Food and the Cafe next to it (great grilled fish), oh and ask Mohammed to give you a Tagine Cookinglesson- best dish we had all week :-) If you find time- drive to Marrakesh! x lisa

I would recommend this property to a friend or relative

                            We booked our holliday in Taghazout after good references from friends who stayed at the same place. The appartement and its seaview was what it promised. The location is close to any restaurant, shop and beach. The manager made sure we got a rental car to take us around a bit further to surfbeaches around. The property was very well kept, and had most facility;s for cooking. Although we only used it for breakfast: u cant beat a 25 dirham tangine at restaurant taghazout (a must do). Taghazout is a chilled out, small, surf loving village. Go there to (learn) to surf, read books and tan. We had a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Eventhough to surf wasn't much around this time a year, we spent a great amount of time on the beach and the appartement is comfy the hang about.

                            My family and I very much enjoyed our holiday staying at this apartment. The apartment was clean, tidy, and well kept. The people of Taghazout are kind, friendly and very accommodating. Banana beach nearby is everything one could want for Sun Sea Sand and Surf. In particular we found the apartments housekeeper, “Mohammed”, extremely helpful in all things, his input into our stay was always above the call of duty, I would visit again just for the pleasure of meeting him once more. It is said that a car is recommended for a stay at this apartment. Our stay was for one week without a car, which was fine, but upon reflection I would agree that transport would be necessary to enhance one’s stay and enjoy the area to a fuller extent. The only negative I can say is there is a bit of a litter problem here and there, but this is a small sadness, most likely as a result of many people visiting a small town still developing a strategy on how to deal with our touristy type of untidiness. Never the less, my family and I will remember our stay at this apartment with a fond reflective smile, and would happily recommend this on to friends and family as a nicely equipped base from which one can explore Morocco.
