                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I am a teacher from London who first visited Essaouira in 2000 and fell in love,! 5 years later I bought an apartment in the heart of the old medina and spent the next two years renovating and furnishing it. It's now a much loved second home. I feel as at home here in my local community as I do at home in Victoria park.

                      Why the Owner Chose Essaouira:
                      I chose this apartment after viewing many houses and apartments. I chose it for its central and safe location,for the light and the fact that it has windows to look out of! It was built in 1929 and has beautiful terrazzo flooring and glorious high ceilings. I love the fact that's it's all on one floor as I had stayed in many places in. Essaouira where I was forever up and down endless flights of stairs only finding natural light on the roof terrace. In our home the doors open out onto terraces and the sun pours in.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Very light and sunny with a real feeling of space and light. In a central and safe location with lovely neighbours. Peaceful and calm yet looking out onto the bustling souk.
