Beautiful house perfect for two or three visitors, good for four or should you decide for more. The house is located on a quiet street in the heart of the medina, offering peace and tranqulity. The beach, souks, main square, cafes, restaurants, fish and veg market are only a stroll away. The location is great to enjoy an authentic feel of this wonderful town so rich in history, culture and music amongst other things.
The decoration of the house is simple, both modern and respectful toward the traditional architecture of Essaouira.
On the mezzanine floor, there is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a separate toilet. On the first floor there is a single room with a handcrafted stone washbasin. There is also another double bedroom with en-suite bathroom identical to the one on the mezzanine and a separate lavatory. The kitchen is allocated on the second floor. It is simply equipped but you should still be able express your culinary creativity.
The living room is located directly opposite the kitchen and it is full of natural light during the day. It is perfect for relaxing next to the fire place, with company and a good glass of wine. Wood for burning can be supplied upon request - just ask Saida the helpful and cheerful maid. There are free wifi, and satellite TV available.
The terrace, which is the best feature of the house benefits from sunshine throughout the day and is equipped with sitting space and a table perfect for alfresco dining under the umbrella. The terrace is well protected from the wind, which is important, Essaouira is renowned for its windy condition. There is an additional kitchenette if you wish to grill fish, prepare salads or breakfast.

The Marrakech/Essaouira region
Essaouira is both familiar and exotic, when looking at the city walls and architecture it could easily be mistaken for an medieval European city but once inside its fortified walls it is infinitely Arabic.
The city is dubbed the "Wind City of Africa" - it is windsurfer heaven and the wind has ensured that the city has not been taken over by commercial tourism, which in turn means that Essaouira has retained its character community stronghold. The wide sandy beach is perfect for long walks or camel rides.
The town lies on the cross roads of two tribes he Arab Chiadma to the north and the Haha Berbers in the south. Add to that the Gnawa, who came originally from further south in Africa, and the Europeans and you get a rich cultural mix.The light and beauty have forever attracted artists to Essaouira, and the town has a flourishing art scene.
A walk on the Essaouira Ramparts is an absolute must, as it offers breathtaking scenery.
The Medina is a UNESCO protected world heritage site because of it represents an example of 18th century architecture.
Being a seaside town Essouira is infamous for delicious fresh seafood. There are several fish markets, which are a great buzz and delicious - without too much damage on your bank accounts.
Last but not least Le Festival Gnaoua which takes place in mid June every year is a colourfu celebration of music from all over the world. As well as music it offers an array of cultural and artistic events.
