I am not on site, before your arrival I will let my colleague Mostafa know your time of arrival. He can meet you at the Essaouira-Mogador airport, Essaouira downtown, or directly near the property to drop you off at the villa and give you the keys. Mohammed the grounds keeper clean discreetly the swimming pool everyday without disturbing you during your stay. You can tell him what time he should clean the pool.
There is a vineyard where you can have lunch or buy the local wine literally few steps from the villa. On your way to Essaouira the various women cooperatives of argan oil worth the visit. You can get 10% discount at the restaurant « La Coupole » with view on the beach of Essaouira if you say that you’re coming from the house :)
The nearest places to buy food and beverages are the small shops in Ounagha (+-3 minutes by car/ +-20 minutes walk/ ask for a horse carriage on your way back, it’s less than 10 minutes).
I will give you the GPS-coordinates to facilitate your trip. The buses and taxis from Ounagha (in front of the mosque) to Essaouira cost only 0,50€/5Dh. On request the large taxis can pick you up next to the house. It's possible to park several cars inside.
There is an additional 20€/ 200Dh housekeeping fee to be paid on site. Feel free to ask, I’m available should you need any further information.
We traveled around Morocco, stayed at many different places, and this home will by far be the most memorable. We planned a trip to Essaouria as a family of 5 for 2 days in the beginning of March. From age 15 to age 70 we all loved it. The property is beautiful, filled with plants and open space. From the main road, to enter the property there is a dirt road surrounded my palms that take about 3 minutes to get to the house adding to the pleasant suspense and anticipation. Mostafa guided us to the house, made sure everything was ready, and retrieved anything we needed. He was wonderful and very helpful. The house feels very safe and has a gate. The furnishing is simple and the Kitchen was well equipped. There are two terraces, one on the second floor and one on the roof both with lovely views. Sunrises are spectacular. We were pleasantly surprised to find orange trees on the property and even a donkey! We heard the donkey and we requested to be let out of its barn. Mostafa came to the house and tied the donkey to a tree so we could feed him. The kids loved it. The pool was quite chilly to use in the beginning of March but it was still fun and was clean. The house has a playstation and an excellent selection of movies which was so nice to have after a long day. The showers are not great (low water pressure, fluctuating temp), but that is what you can expect being isolated and it was worth it. The house is not too far from Essaouria, but expect to drive at least 15-20 min. There is no WIFI, but this actually enhanced our family time. Our 15 year old was quite upset at first, but really enjoyed himself throughout the entire stay. 3 min drive from the house towards Essaouria, there are places to get fresh produce, eggs, meat, and bread very cheap.
All I would recommend is to have the house equipped with spices and outdoor lounge chairs that are not broken.
I highly recommend staying at this beautiful tranquil home!
What was not to love about this place! It was amazing. From the resident peacocks roaming the grounds and the red dragonfly's skimming across the surface of the pool when they thought we weren't looking - to the Olive trees and beautiful greenery all contained in a very secure and private location. The walk we took through the local vineyard literally next door to the villa was really educational and enjoyable and the villa itself had ample amenities to keep us more than satisfied. Essaouira is a fair drive away and there are not many local shops around so you will need your own transport, but we chose this place for it's remoteness and found that it was based in an area close enough to commute to all the attractions we wanted to see. There was a grounds keeper on site but we rarely saw him and were never disturbed by him. If you're looking for an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle and want to do so in style and comfort then look no further, this is the place for you.
The nearest village is called Ounagha, you will find some small shops and restaurants. The beach is less than twenty minutes drive.
