About the property

3000M2 Garden, Heated pool, Breakfast offered, 5 bedrooms, Panoramic terasse

For Rent, around the Golf Course of Sofitel, 5km South of ESSAOUIRA, a beautiful 5 bedrooms villa of 400 m2 on a plot of 3000 m2 with a very large heated private pool (12 x 4 m), a local cook/maid at your service 6 days/week and 4 bicycles available for free. 2 inside kitchens plus 2 outside bars as well as a petanque area

Facing west, it offers a view on a lake and the sea. A large terrace on the roof includes facilities to relax or entertain friends and offer a perspective on the nature and magnificent sunsets.

The 30.000 sqft garden, all sunny, includes a rest area in the shade under beautiful trees mimosas, with barbecus, fountain, aviary, chickens, rabbits...

A giant 75 inches HD TV, a 5.1 BOSE home cinema and a Blu-Ray/DVD player will kept you entertained if needed. A SONOS audio system provide music in most of the rooms. 4 other TV are in the bedrooms.

We live in it every other month and we make it available for you for the remaining time.

It is located around the golf course of Sofitel Essaouira in the totally private and very secure residential area of Mogador, which spreads over 600 hectares of forests, sand dunes and lush nature. A private beach is 300 m away and the beach is a 1 km walk.

Included in the price, I put at your disposal for free our own governante. Very helpful, very discrete and speaking French, she is a very good cook and can prepare local dishes for your pleasure or make sure your breakfast is ready when you wake up to help you to start the day in a good mood. Except on Sunday, she will come every day.

Breakfast is offered every day.

I have negociated for you a special deal with a CAR rental company that can, if you wish, bring you a car to the villa and collect it at the end of your stay. His prices are very raisonnable and you don't need to go in town to get a car...

As a resident of Mogador, you will be able to use at a discounted price some facilities of the Sofitel (SPA, restaurants, bars ....) as well as its two magnificent golf courses ( 18 + 9 holes).

A pedestrian route goes all around the domaine for nice walks, and an equestrian Club is just outside the area.

You are 5 minutes by car from Essaouira which Medina is very relaxing and welcoming. Essaouira is very quiet, not polluted at all (there is no longer any industrial facility) and its inhabitants are especially nice and helpful. Nothing to do with the stress of our lives ...

You can find the video of our villa on Youtube under the name "La fiancee du vent location villa vacance essaouira maroc" or on this site half way on the page "equipments"

So, welcome in our home, welcome in your home...

About Bertrand MICHELS

French and Belgium, we leave in Brugge in Belgium, and we come almost every month to this villa to rest. We have decorated this villa for our pleasure and yours. We are happy to share with you this little paradise.

Bertrand MICHELS purchased this villa in 2013

Why Bertrand MICHELS chose Atlantic Coast Morocco

Weather in Essaouira is tempered: never too cold and never too hot... like it can be in Marrakech. The wind from the sea makes the temperature very acceptable.

The complete Golf + Sofitel + Villas area is secured by private guards.

What makes this villa unique

Secured, QUIET area, always good weather, large heated swiming pool, and... our maid, excellent cook, will be there to make your stay even more enjoyable. Breakfast offered. Half board is possible.

Great property - lovely, relaxing stay at New Year

The villa is quite beautiful, very spacious and well laid out. We were a family group of 7, aged 8 to 78 and enjoyed a very relaxing stay thanks to the wonderful hospitality offered by Khadija. From the moment we arrived when we received mint tea and cake Khadija made sure we felt at home. We had great weather, played tennis every day and enjoyed lounging around the wonderful pool. We were able to walk easily to the beach for camel rides at sunset, and enjoyed swimming in the sea (a bit chilly in January but the kids were in there for hours!). The town is a 10 minute taxi ride, or one hour walk, with lots of restaurants, shops, promenade etc. The kids enjoyed the 75" tv when relaxing in the evenings, and just 3 hrs from London it was a great break from the cold.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Tom for those nice words. Our housekeeper Khadija will be very happy to read that you appreciated so much her service. I know she also appreciated your presence and liked playing with your kids and showing them our rabits and birds. I am happy you had some good time in our villa.

Einfach paradiesisch!

Eine luxuriöse Villa, geräumig, geschmackvoll und durchdacht eingerichtet, mit schönen Garten und Pool und nahe (15 min. schöner Fußweg) am endlosen Sandstrand. Wir haben uns bestens erholt.

Unser besonderer Dank gilt Khadijah, die mit ihrer herzlichen Art uns Marokko und auch die marokkanische Küche (Poulet au Citron!) näher gebracht hat. Auch die gesamte Kommunikation rund um den Aufenthalt mit dem Vermieter war perfekt. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen. Merci beaucoup!

heavenly escape

We stayed for a week with the family consisting of children.

Our time in the secluded villa was sublime.

The grounds were kept up meticulously. And the rooms with bathrooms were spacious. Taste is personal but we have to admit that the interior decoration was completely to ours :). The heated swimming pool was always tempting. Not to forget the close by luckily "deserted" beach which can only be described as eye candy of the first order. The villa was cleaned every day and a tantalising breakfast and lunch was always prepared.

We departed with the feeling of leaving our "home".

Essaouira was on our whishlist for years, this summer we went there! If you want to go, stay at this beautiful villa. It is far enough from the busy town to enjoy the countryside but close enough to go there every day if you wish. The moment you step through the front door you will feel at home. Everything is perfect! The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful and super clean. The garden well kept and for every time of the day a lovely place to sit or lay down. And then, above all, there was Khadija, she took care of us like we were her family. Always there to spoil you with whatever you like. Thank you Khadijah, if possible would have taken you with us! Also special company was Sjoesj (her real name is Josette) the cat, as we called her. She kept us company day (and night ;)) and made us feel at home even more. A holiday to remember, and if possible the will return to Essaouira en this perfect villa. Thank you Bertrand for letting is stay there, and helping Allard with planning my birthday. Thank you Khadijah for your loving care and above all, for baking me the best birthday cake ever.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests Friends, I am very happy that you enjoyed so much your stay in our Villa, and I will show to Khadija, the Governante of our Villa, your nice comments about her. It was also a pleasure to help your husband planing your surprise birthday day. I am glaad you enjoyed our little surprise activity. It was also nice that you agreed to have Josette, our little cat, staying in the villa while you were there. Normally she goes to the Governante's place in town when we have guests, but of course she prefers to stay in "her" villa to play and hunt all day outside... so thank you for autorising her to stay with you. we are looking forward having you with us if you come back to Essaouira sincerely bertrand

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

C'est une villa absolument superbe, la décoration et le confort sont remarquables. Les différents espaces aménagés à l'extérieur offrent autant de recoins et d'ambiances que ce soit pour déjeuner, prendre un thé ou un verre, ou bien se reposer. La piscine est parfaite, Khadija est adorable et cuisine impeccablement. Elle a aussi enrichi notre séjour de ses suggestions, conseils, et informations en tout genres. Nous avons pu profiter du terrain de pétanque avec son bar et éclairage, des tennis et golf academy à 2 pas, et bien sûr de la plage. Si nous revenons à Essaouira ce sera certainement pour profiter de nouveau de cette villa. Merci !

Wij hebben de Kerstdagen doorgebracht in deze fantastische villa. Zeer modern vormgegeven met Marokkaanse ambiance.

Het zwembad kan heerlijk verwarmd worden. Overigens in deze wntermaand zomerse temperaturen in Essaouira, tussen de 20 - 27 graden!

Het Domain is gelegen in een bosrijke omgeving, heel rustig en binnen wandelafstand van het strand.

En-------------Khadija is een discrete, maar zeer hartelijke gastvrouw. Zij regelt alles om het verblijf aangenaam te maken.

Onze (klein-)zoon spreekt nog steeds over zijn lekkernij, de pannenkoeken van Hadija!

You are 5 minutes by car (+ - 50 DHR = € 5 taxi) from Essaouira which Medina is very relaxing and welcoming. Essaouira is very quiet, not polluted at all (there is no longer any industrial facility) and its inhabitants are especially nice and helpful. Nothing to do with the stress of our lives ...

Essaouira Airport is 10 minutes away and hosts among other RyanAir & AirMaroc flights. And recent good news: There are direct flights fromParis & Brussels since May 2013.

The airport of Marrakech is at 2:30 heures/75 € by taxi. I can organize your transfer via my usual taxi driver or I can give you his contact informations. Highly educated and very helpful, he will also be able to arrange visits or local tour.

As a resident of Mogador, you will be able to use at a discounted price some facilities of the Sofitel (SPA, restaurants, bars ....) as well as its two magnificent golf courses ( 18 + 9 holes).

A pedestrian route goes all around the domaine for nice walks, and an equestrian Club is just outside the area.
