Local Information

Southern Morocco’s most favoured Atlantic town – and the one most easily reached from Marrakech – offers both a contrast and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Essaouira has managed to retain a laid-back timelessness rarely felt in the seething streets of Marrakech. It’s a relaxing place and a charming one too. Sandy colored ramparts shelter a clean and bright medina built around French piazzas, carved archways and whitewashed avenues and alleys.

Over the past decade, Essaouira has become known as a centre for arts, crafts and music, attracting visitors to it’s galleries and workshops and hosting an assortment of annual festivals. Apart from the well known Gnaoua World Music Festival in June, there is also a Flamenco Festival and Arabo-Andalucian music in the autumn and a classical music festival each spring.

The fishing port, overlooked by grand fortifications, provides a constant source of supplies for local restaurants, while the wide sandy beaches to the south have put Essaouira on the windsurfing map at certain times of the year when the winds are up.

Our View

The Atlantic town of Essaouira is a wonderfully bohemian destination and the perfect place to enjoy the heat of the north African sun and beach. Life here is laid back and vibrant.

Villa Primera is a beautiful, privately owned villa situated on the edge of the grounds of Le Jardin des Douars hotel. The joy of renting a villa within the grounds of a hotel is that you can dip and out of the hotel amenities if you wish, or stay well away from the gourmet restaurants and spa facilities. Depending on how the mood takes you.

The house is generous in size and has a great pool terrace with tiled floor, there are lots of different places to sit by and near the pool, take a Moroccan tea in the shade, eat breakfast in the bright light of the morning or dine under the stars. The pool is heated to a constant temperature and has great comfy seating around it, and there is a small heated wading pool for children.

Inside the house the deep reds of Morocco can be felt in every corner, local furniture and fabrics have been used to great effect and the large arched doors mean the house is flooded with light. Bedrooms have beautiful local rugs adorning the authentically tiled floors, beautiful Moroccan lamps hang from the high ceilings and deep colours have been used throughout. There are stunning tiles in the beautiful bathrooms, dressing gowns, fluffy towels, linen sheets… the list is endless!

Children will love it here as there is a petanque pitch and swings in the gardens where they can play while you enjoy a drink by the pool or dine on the terrace.

A cook will prepare breakfast, and other meals if required, using ingredients you have purchased while out exploring, or preparing menus you have pre-ordered, so you can truely relax while someone else spends time in the kitchen.
