Essaouira lies on the Atlantic coast, 100 miles from Marrakech. It takes its name - town of little ramparts from the impressive fortifications left by its Portugese founders.
The unique charm of this town rests in the harmonious blend of its many different aspects its moderate climate and superb beach, its working harbour and thuya wood workshops, its numerous souks and craft shops, its local artists and gnaoua musicians. Essaouira is a beautiful, unique and relaxed town. It has sunshine and bright blue skies nearly all year round. It is a popular destination for windsurfers, surfers, artists, musicians, independant travellers and families and is very up and coming. There are many local festivals, masses of culture and tradition and fine restaurants.
It has a rustic feel of simplicity and has retained its charm with its fusion of beach life, the traditional and daily life in the old medina, excellent cuisine and an easy friendliness with the local people.
An excellent destination for families / couples / independant travellers (anyone with a slight sense of adventure!)
The medina and beyond
The medina (or walled town) is pedestrian only. Essaouira is quite a small town, so a car is only necessary if one plans on taking day trips to nearby beaches or beyond. There are car hire agencies where it is possible to hire by the day.
Everything in Essaouira is within walking distance.

AMAZING!!! Exeeded our expectations in full! Thanks to Fatima the lady of many talents, Said the man who is there when ever you need him and ofcourse the owners Nicola & Damien. if there is a complaint it would be the photos used to promote the property...most pictures are taken in the property below Chez Nicola like the bed room picture and the living room picture, they are identical propertys but there is a slighty different set-up...DONT expect a 4 poster bed..., that was a slight dissapointment and dont know WHY the real photos arent used as it is just as beautiful if not better....BUT A DEFINATE recommendation!! Essaouira is great!...chilled...and you will get a proper holiday feeling....
Had a fabulous holiday in this lovely apartment... In fact im thinking hard and cannot find a complaint!! Ok, the only compaint is we could not stay longer... Can only thank Nicola (the owner) Fatima (the maid) and Said (the man whos there when you need him!) Cant wait to go back if its vacant.. Had a tear in my eye when i left. Miss the apartment, weather people and food...Especially Fatimas tagine. Highly recommend this apartment!! Ailsa
Dear Nicola, We had a great stay in your apartment. I loved the way it is decorated. Especially the things you have made....("The cats from Essaouira", I love them )) It was very nice to come back to after a nice day in Essaouira. It is warm and romantic. The atmosphere makes you feel relaxed. And the roof-terrace is wonderful. We could watch the sun go down and after we had a nice barbeque. Said and Fatima are wonderful and very friendly. They helped us a lot. And it was very nice to talk to them. The only thing I would change is the kettle for hot water. We liked to take a bath, but the hot water was finished fast. But we would definitly come back!!! Thank you... Mustapha & Kiona
Fantastic communication and help from the owner on a number of queries. Swift and very informative replies. Arrival instructions all arranged as planned and assisted superbly by the apartment manager when in Morocco. Clean and tidy apartment, with all the specifications detailed previously. Really enjoyed our time there and would greatly recommend using this to anyone else.
Nos ha encantado nuestra estancia en Essaouira. El apartamento es más bonito que en las fotografías, la única sorpresa fue que la terraza era compartida con otros tres apartamentos, cosa que no sabíamos, pero no nos ha supuesto ningún problema. Las habitaciones están decoradas con mucho gusto, el cuarto de baño precioso y muy amplio y la distribución resulta muy práctica y acogedra. Como consejo no debes olvidar pedir toallas limpias a Fátima (encantadora) cuando sea necesario ya que se hayan en un armario bajo llave. Absolutamente recomendable hablar también nada más llegar con Said, nos ayudó mucho a aclarar ciertas cuestiones importantes para nosotros, ya que ibamos con dos niños de 10 y 15 años y necesitábamos ciertos consejos que el no dudó en ofrecernos. Essaouira ha sido una buena elección, así como el apartemento.
