The Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region

Essaouira's medina is UNESCO world heritage listed town that has a chilled out feel. It has a fabulous blue flag clean beach which stretches for miles and there are numerous watersports available including wind surfing/kite boarding. There are great cafes and restaurants along the beach front and camels and horses can be riden along the beach.

Within the medina there is so much to explore, many streets, alleyways and hiiden passageways to explore, souks selling Moroccan handicrafts/carpets/jewellery/fresh food and many art galleries where local artists exhibit.

There are so many fantastic eating places within the medina to suit all tastes and budgets and also bars which have live music on regularly. There are fresh fish cafes in the main square and the historic port and ramparts to explore. Essaouira has a very calm, relaxed feel where you can get involved in as little or as much as you like.
10mins from Essaouira is the little village of Diabet where Jimi Hendrix lived for a while and where he wrote the'castles in the sand song'from.

Ancient Medina

The port and the ramparts are steeped in local history and great to explore. There are festivals on in Essaouira throughout the year. the main festival being the GNAWA festival in June where musicians from all over Morocco come to play-a great experience!!!!!!!!

“A peaceful haven”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2016

We, four friends, stayed at Dar Nicola for three weeks over Christmas and New. Three of us knew Essaouira already from a visit during last years Christmas holiday, when we stayed at another riad. Entering Dar Nicola for the first time one of us spontaneously shouted: Gosh, it is even more beautiful than the photos suggested. Does one need to say more. The place is very comfortable and well equipped and has a very calm and peaceful atmosphere. There is no WiFi at the place. A couple of us (who are used to checking their e-mails every five minutes) were initially disappointed, but in the end we all agreed that it made actually for a more relaxing holiday, especially as the nearest cafe with WiFi connection is literally only a couple of minutes away. But what we appreciated most were the two private roof terraces with direct access from the kitchen. We spent many hours up there. Enjoying the sound of the sea gulls overhead, the regular visits of a neighbouring cat, the ocean glistening on the horizon in the afternoon sun, the distant sound of the call to prayer. All in all a wonderful and very sensual experience. We certainly will be back. Thank you Nicola for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

Many thanks for your review. We have now installed wifi in the house as many guests had requested it.

“Great property in an ideal location”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Essaouira and Dar Nicola was a wonderful place to stay. It was really spacious and airy and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was really well equipped and the cleaner and manager were very helpful during our stay. Essaouira is full of charm and has a bohemian feel with lots of quirky shops, restaurants and cafes and a lovely beach right on its doorstep. I would definitely recommend

“A beautiful place to stay!”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2013

We have been very fortunate to stay in some great houses in Essaouira but Dar Nicola is one of the best places that we have stayed in. I would highly recommend this property as you cannot fault it- staff are very friendly, beds are very comfortable, you have a great rooftop terrace, a great kitchen to cook in, lovely living area and Nicola has added some fantastic decoration pieces that make the house feel bright and welcoming!
