Local Information

Considering it is within easy reach of Marrakech, coastal Essaouira provides a stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the medinas. With its laid-back, seaside vibe and a delicious sea breeze, it is a refreshing oasis with so much to offer.

There are souks a-plenty in Essaouira, but here they are an altogether more relaxed affair, where you feel you are easily able to browse to your heart’s content without the uneasy pressure that can sometimes be felt in this environment. Spend your days wandering the narrow streets, exploring the many and varied galleries and boutiques, perhaps stopping in the main plaza to enjoy a coffee or better yet a refreshing mint tea. Enjoy the fresh grilled fish on offer by the port, whilst watching the rest of that day’s catch being brought in on the picturesque blue boats lined up in the harbour.

The wide sandy beaches here have really put Essaouira on the map as a top wind-surfing destination, perfect for entertaining children and adults alike whilst those that prefer a more leisurely approach observe from the comfort of a beach-side café over a lovely glass of something cold.

Our View

Essaouira is the perfect destination for bohemian travellers, with its sandy beach and bustling medina streets filled with folk art and tribal pieces, those seeking a more laid back Moroccan experience will be captivated by its charm.

Villa Basmah is one of three privately owned villas at the edge of the grounds of Le Jardin des Douars hotel, so guests would be perfectly located to benefit from all the services offered by the hotel as much or as little as they want. Choose from gourmet restaurants, spa, leisure activities, a shuttle to the beach or Medina…

This is a charming, traditional Moroccan house. The lovely pool is big and surrounded by beautiful sun beds with comfy white cushions. The planting around the pool is full of colour – lots to look at when not caught up in your book! We love the extra little touches here like sunbeds supplied for every guest.

Inside the house you will find beautiful tiled floors and accents of warm Moroccan colours throughout, from the red and green silks in the sitting room to the bright yellows and blues in the bedrooms. Walls are burnished orange or gentle cream, all in all some wonderful colours remind you of the liveliness and vibrancy of this fabulous country.

With beautiful landscaped gardens, a large terrace and outside dining, and a vast open plan living area and two comfortable areas for seating, there is plenty of space for everyone here. Inside and out this house ticks all the boxes.

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.
