Wonderful, calm and relaxing....

  • 5 of 5

We have spent two wonderful holidays in this adoring house this year. The house is very charming and well equipped. Hamza, the house keeper and gardener, and his wife Hanane both cared well for us whenever we needed anything. We enjoyed Hanane’s excellent cooking and relaxed in the wonderful garden. In the near surroundings you will find two beautiful beaches: Essauoira (around 10 km) and Sidi Kaouki (around 17 km). In Ghazuoa - only 1 km away from the house - you will find small grocery stores and a few restaurants. And for a greater variety of shops, restaurants and tourist attractions Essaouira is only a 10 km drive away. We would like to thank the owners Christine and Philippe for letting us stay in their wonderful house. We are already looking forward to our next stay in “l'échappée belle”….!

"Arrived at 11pm after 3h...

  • 5 of 5

"Arrived at 11pm after 3hr drive from Marrakech.Hamza the gardien was there to let us in and serve a very welcome tastey tajine cooked by his wife Hanane.The house is one of a group down a lane just off the main road.During our stay the other houses were unoccupied except for their gardiens and visiting workmen.The view from the roof terrace is of small holdings and argon and olive groves.The property is well designed and larger than the website photos imply.There was most of the kitchen equipment that you would need and the solar heated water was very efficient even though it was February. The house was naturally cooler at night and it was a shame that the fireplace ''ne marche pas'' as Hamza put it.However we were never really cold , it just would have been cosy to have had an open fire and it was something we missed.However there are plenty of blankets for the beds.

There are pretty gardens with resident tortioses and a friendly toad.There is a swimming pool which must be very welcome during the hotter months.

Hamza was always on hand , living on the property, and was very keen to be of service. This was our fourth stay in this area and we enjoyed visiting past discoveries and making new

adventures. We love to explore off the beaten track and if you venture deep into the countryside, down some of the rough farm tracks you are rewarded with scenes that take you back to the 18th century ; shepherds in smocks with crook in hand tending their flock , men ploughing fields using a donkeys and sewing the seeds by hand.It is wonderful walking country but take a map, a compass and a stick in case of aggressive dogs.

The house is a good base , quiet yet not remote with local shops 2 km away and Essaouira 10 minutes by car.You can if you wish get Hamza and Hanane to shop and cook and do just about anything for you."

Jardin enchanté aux portes d'Essaouira

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse en famille (5 adultes et 3 jeunes enfants) sans nous gêner du tout. Grande maison avec des portes-fenêtres ouvrant directement sur le jardin, superbement entretenu et de toute beauté, très fleuri à cette période. On se retrouvait pour les repas sur la terrasse ou dans la grande salle à manger.

Hamza très discret, était toujours à notre écoute. Son épouse était indisponible cette semaine-là, mais nous avons pu nous approvisionner en grande partie à El Ghazoua, à un km de la propriété.

Beauté et sérénité caractérisent cette demeure. Nous y reviendrons j'espère.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre gentille appréciation et nous sommes ravis de savoir que votre séjour s'est très bien déroulé. Nous vous accueillerons sans problème de nouveau si vous le désirez. Dès notre retour au Maroc nous conduirons Hanane chez le médecin afin de résoudre ce problème de kyste au poignet qui l'a invalidée durant votre séjour. Bien cordialement. MR et ME COUTY.

(Text automatically translated) to the output of El Ghazoua take direction Marrakech, 2 km take the first path on the right and follow it for 500 meters. Last house on the left, behind the big gate awaits a "paradise". If your choice is Airport Agadir or Marrakech, we can organize your transfer service provider.

Possibility of meals by hanane (wife of our guardian) makes sublime couscous, tagines, pastillas ... visit the argan Ahmed cooperative with working women (500m walk) make, track courses in African music ...) Some examples of true happiness: - Choose fruit and vegetables from local producers to large souk Had Dra Sunday morning (hamza our guardian can accompany you).. - Buy fresh fish for many anglers on the port. - Admire the splendid work of the artisans of cedar and painters. - Bargain hunting in your favorite Ali Baba km8 or multiple shops in the medina are enjoying wonderful mint tea. - Contemplating the extraordinary sunsets on the island of Mogador, the Skala and the fortifications of the city. - Or just to linger friendly sidewalk cafes. All this authenticity will disorient you and seduce you for sure!!
