                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Friendly,professional, mature guy,well travelled,love food,wine, animal charities, and life!

                      Why the Owner Chose Essaouira:
                      For many years we wanted to tour Morocco,but the price of flights and accommodation proved to be over our budget. Then the King of Morocco opened up the 'sky' to cheap flight operators,and Travelrepublic offered accommodation deals.In September 2006 we embarked on a three week tour of Morocco,and the thought of a holiday home abroad had been on our minds for many years. During our visit to Morocco,viewing many properties for sale,we spent a wonderful week in Essaouira. Living in coastal Wales,enjoying friendly country life,we wanted a home 'far from the maddening crowd' Our brief to our friend and agent was to find us a traditional,country house, in the Berber village of Ghazoua. Without viewing the property , we purchased the house, expecting a few rentals per year. Our home is your home,and our friends are your friends,enjoy.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      For a taste of the 'real Morocco' this is good as it gets. Wonderful country village location, neighbours, environment, and much more. Essaouira airport is only 12 miles from the house(London Luton,May-November,EASYJET........................
