About the property

240-m² living space and 200-m² terraces, view of the ocean and the mountain

The house, located in front of the sea, offers an unobstructed view of the ocean, the Atlas Mountains, and Cap Ghir —a dominant view on a headland, 50 metres above sea level—. It is spacious (240 m²) and comfortable, with a design that provides privacy to everyone and a private bathroom in each bedroom. The house offers an elegant Andalucian Arabic decoration, with carpets, superb orientalist paintings, wonderful Berber and Arab pottery, and good lighting in each room with access to the outdoor areas, which is rare in Moroccan houses. Terraces: there is a 200-m² area divided into 3 terraces. There is a garden (bougainvillea, rose bushes, and hibiscus) with view of the ocean and the Atlas Mountains. The terrace on the first floor extends to the living room. It is ideal to enjoy a barbecue. The terrace on the second floor, reachable by a loggia, is a relaxation area, as well as the one on the third level. In addition, there is a solarium with an unobstructed view. It is not overlooked, so you can sunbathe. Being very close, you walk to the beach (300 m away), where you can practice swimming, surfing, or fishing. Fifty metres away, there is a grocery store. Aourir is a 10-minute-walk and offers shops, restaurants, and a wonderful souk by the sea on Wednesdays. Agadir is 10 km away (a 20-minute drive) and offers all the amenities of a large city. Taghazout (5 km) is reachable. You can visit the rock of Immourane and its surf school. In the high area, there is a wonderful golf course. Paradise Valley is 30 minutes away, and the Immouzer waterfalls are an hour and a half minutes away. Essaouira is only 150 km away (2 hours and a half), and Marrakech is 250 km away (3 hours and a half). Taroudant is 70 km away. Services: A cleaning service carried out 4 times per week is included in the rate. Dinner can be prepared upon request. Babysitting is available upon request. It is possible to book a rental car or a taxi at the airport with a warm and discreet welcome. Activities: Surf: there are two surf spots at the foot of the house and many other spots 30 km away. It is possible to swim from April to October, and there are many pools at the hotels, which allow access to non-residents for a fee. Angling, shellfish fishing, and underwater fishery are available. Other options available include a boat trip on catamaran or another boat, riding a horse or a camel, and trekking in the mountains overlooking the ocean. Golf: there are three schools in Agadir and another school in Taghazout, 5 minutes away by car. To sum up, this house is perfect for group of friends and families. It is mainly recommended for those who want to discover a Moroccan region, practice sports activities, or rest. It is not recommended for groups young people who want to find a large house to organise a party.

About Harrouch Afous

We are a retired Franco-Moroccan couple. Settled in the southeast of France, we had a cottage for more than ten years. We enjoyed the meetings and friendships forged at these receptions. This has given us want to repeat this successful experience in Morocco and we have used the Homelidays site to do this since 2005. To date, we are part of one of the three best places in Morocco, taking into account many reviews of satisfied tenants.

Harrouch Afous purchased this house in 2001

Why Harrouch Afous chose Atlantic Coast Morocco

We love this beautiful place of the bay, and we often go camping at Devil Rock. We dreamed of being in the heights overlooking the ocean. That dream came true when we could buy a beachfront terrain. We designed and built Akka Dar to live on the ground floor and make the reception on the upper floors. For us, receiving tenants it is like having friends.

What makes this house unique

We are so close to the ocean that we can be cradled by it! The view of the waves on the beach is soothing. Resting on the terraces is a nice experience, surrounded by bougainvillea and roses, facing the sea. At the solarium, one can admire the coast and the mountains, offering breath-taking sunsets over the Atlantic. You can taste prawns, calamari, and lobsters caught right in front of the house or Imsouane. You can watch the small fishing boats come and go, as well the surfers at the foot of the house. The house offers all the comforts, and it has been pleasantly designed to offer independence. The comfortable beds guarantee that you will have a high quality sleep. The Moorish decoration is discreet and elegant with beautiful pieces of pottery, many good quality Moroccan paintings, and carpets in every room. For a real holiday, cleaning service is carried out 4 times a week and you can hire Habiba to prepare Moroccan dinners. Dar Akka is a wonderful house!

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Meerblick, großes Haus, phänomenales Essen von Habiba!!! Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche, Anfang November war es wettermäßig noch optimal!!! Mietwagen sei empfohlen, denn Tagesausflüge nach Essaouira und Marrakesch sind auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen. Marokko ist eine Reise wert und das Ferienhaus von Familie Harrouch ist ein Geheimtipp!!!

The holiday house of family Harrouch is a insider's tip. The food cooked by Habiba was delicious. We recommend a rental car to visit Marrakesh and Essaouira.

Les vacances à la maison de vancances était magnifique - les repas preparé par Habiba étaient très delicieux, la maison est grande et on a une vue sur la mer. M. Harrouch est le meilleur hôte on peut rêver de. Nous préconisons de louer une voiture pour visiter Marrakesch et Essaouria.

  • 5 of 5

"We have no criticisms of this villa, (only a warning about walking around barefoot: there are some unexpected little steps between some of the rooms). It is spacious, light and furnished beautifully. The 3 terraces catch the sun and give excellent views over the ocean and the surrounding neighbourhood. The owners were in residence on the ground floor but this was not a problem as they were so charming and helpful. Speaking French is a definite advantage, but this is true for any Moroccan visit. Similarly, finding the property needs care, and navigating the area in general, but so what? This is part of the Moroccan experience..."

"The accommodation was absolutely fantastic. Very clean and not noisy at all. The view was amazing and the facilities etc were great. The owners were very nice and helpful and helped us when we had car trouble. You would need to hire a car if you were to stay there as it is a little bit out of Agadir but is a superb location."

Get into the colourful and typical setting of the souk in Aourir, which is located by the sea, every Wednesday. Walk along the Souk El Had d'Agadir every day except on Monday. Visit the fishing harbour in the morning, when the boats arrive. Enjoy a grilled meal at the harbour entrance. Enjoy the fish and shellfish that can be bought at the harbour, Taghazout, or at the fish market in Agadir. The house is by two surf spots, and you can take surf lessons nearby and rent surfboards. There is a golf course 15 km away. The road to Paradise Valley is shaded by palm trees, and one can find waterfalls by taking the Aourir exit road. There are many good restaurants in Aourir and Agadir. We are located 5 min away from Taghazout and you can walk to the beaches. In just one day, you can visit Tafraoute or go to Essaouira. For a longer stay, do not forget to visit the Draa Valley or the Dades Valley. There are bird watching walks 40 km way.
