Further details indoors

During the day the rooms are sunny, light and airy due to a central light well. The first two floors are traditionally decorated with many period items – chandeliers, antique beds and textiles – with the high ceilings also representing an unusual feature. On the third floor, a more modern character prevails: the colour white becomes predominant, as does simplicity of décor, and one becomes aware of sky, seagulls, waves. The views from the terrace, which is not overlooked, are quite simply magnificent.

Location description from owner

The Marrakech-Tensift-El Haouz Region

Essaouira is generally acclaimed as one of the most enchanting spots along Morocco's Atlantic coast.

It enjoys this status because of a unique combination of factors: its sunny and temperate climate which hardly varies from one month to the next, the generosity and warmth offered by its inhabitants, its inheritance of treasures both architectural and cultural and, most crucially, the liberal and tolerant atmosphere which so strongly characterises the mood of its streets, where fishermen, locals, tourists both Moroccan and European, merchants, craftsmen, musicians, and artists of all kinds come to share their work, perspectives and friendship.

Its architecture is both harmonious and yet varied, displaying at different times its French, Portugese, and Berber heritages. In 2001 UNESCO designated it a World Heritage Site, describing it as an outstanding and well preserved example of a late 18th century European fortified seaport town translated to a North African context.

Essaouira

There is something in Essaouira for everyone. For those seeking a relaxing time, there are hammams and a spa to visit, innumerable cafes overlooking the beach, and a large soukh to potter about. For the more active, there is quadbiking, camel riding, horse riding, windsurfing or kitesurfing.

Culturally, the town itself is a huge, living museum. Architecturally, it is stunning, and you can see innumerable workshops with craftsmen making mosaics, marquetry, rugs, silks, wrought ironwork and so on. Food at the local market costs very little, and the restaurant prices are unbelievably cheap, certainly by British standards. The town is pretty cosmopolitan with many European visitors, particularly French.
