Festivals - there are many world-famous festivals throughout the year in Essaouira, notably The Essaouira Gnaoua and World Music Festival (annually in June) - a celebration of the mysterious music of the Gnaouas, the product of a mystic tradition with branches as widespread as Haitian voodoo and Brazilian Candomblé.
Lindsey and Fiona purchased the property after visiting Essaouira for a half term adventure with their two school age children. Fiona's mother was born in Morocco to missionary grandparents and she grew up hearing many tales about the exotic and exciting country. Essouira is a family friendly destination where their whole family can enjoy the culture, shopping, delicious food and the fabulous beach all through the year.
