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

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.
