About the Property
Unique house, peaceful, private, spacious,great location/views, secluded garden
The spacious house has been beautifully renovated in a fusion of traditional Moroccan style with a modern twist.
The pretty garden has a large sun terrace, tiled pathways and many different plants. The huge roof terrace is perfect for secluded sunbathing admiring the unspoilt views or star gazing at a magical night sky.
Please be aware that this is our second home which we visit regularly and treasure very much. We have lovingly renovated this house from its original state using local artisans. We trust that all who stay find our home a peaceful and beautiful place to unwind. The first floor of the property houses our own bedroom which is closed off to guests, however our huge roof terrace (approx 80m2) is easily accessible from the garden. The roof terrace has stunning views of the local countryside, is very private and secluded and has numerous sun lounging areas for your enjoyment. From the roof terrace you can enjoy the local sounds and sights of the varied wildlife and watch the magical sunsets. The house has many different areas for you to relax and read, or lie and enjoy both the weather and your surroundings, and is large enough for all who stay to have plenty of space to themselves if required.
Windsurfing, Kite surfing and Surfing Holiday: Our house is a fantastic base for you to experience the local area with beaches as far as the eye can see and counts among the 'model destinations' for windsurfers, kite surfers and surfers worldwide. This little fishing town of Essaouira boasts long, white sandy beaches and some of the best conditions for windsurfing in the whole of Morocco and Africa. This is the place to go to when you want to just kick back and relax and remains relatively unspoiled. It's very popular with independent travellers from many different nationalities. Promoting itself as the 'Windy City Afrika', Essaouira hosts a number of major national and international windsurfing competitions each year. The most popular places to go windsurfing are Diabat, Sidi Kaouki and Cap Sim. Over the years, it has built up quite a reputation for itself as one of the best spots internationally.
We can help advise/arrange appropriate car hire for your stay so that you can find the very best spots for wind on the wide open beaches.
Personal service and privacy: Upon your arrival at the house you will be greeted by our manager Rachid who will guide you through the property and explain the use of the facilities. Rachid is on-hand throughout your stay should you need any further assistance relating to the property, he is there to ensure you have a hassle free and wonderful stay. He will also be happy to answer any questions that you may have about the local village, area and Essaouira. A welcome dinner can be arranged for your arrival, especially if you arrive tired and late in the day. The experience of having your own home, space and seating/sun-lounging areas is a unique private experience and offers so much more than staying in a hotel or guest house which will cost considerably more. Staying in our home in a village location will provide you with the best of both worlds - a peaceful and beautiful country setting with friendly local people, and the hustle and bustle of Essaouira with it's vibrant fishing port and souks nearby.

Relax and enjoy the daily rhythm of village life - get in tune with the daily movement of the sun and be entranced by the stars at night. Meet our friendly Berber neighbours, explore the relaxed way of life in the village and see the local donkeys at work collecting daily water.
Visit the amazing local beaches, only 10-15 minutes from the house and enjoy the sand and sea of the Atlantic coast. Visit the local Berber markets and wonder at the produce and many other things for sale.
Essaouira 'The laid-back attitude, artsy atmosphere, bracing sea breezes and picture-postcard ramparts make Essaouira a firm favourite on the traveller’s trail. It’s the kind of place where you’ll sigh deeply and relax enough to shrug off your guarded attitude and just soak up the atmosphere' - Lonely Planet.
