What we like about this property

We are always looking for great vacation homes for rent in Morocco, and we love this one. A beautifully-restored 18th-century home, it is located in the heart of Essaouira’s ancient medina. It sleeps eight guests comfortably over four floors in great style and comfort, but is surprisingly inexpensive.

Description

This vacation home in Morocco exceeds all expectations. A lovely house in the free-spirited coastal resort of Essaouira, it’s located in the Chbanat area in the heart of the ancient medina, which is famous for its textile workshops. Characterful to say the least, it’s an 18th-century building that’s been restored while retaining all its original features, from sandstone columns and thuya wood ceilings to traditional black-and-white tiled floors.  

Each of the house’s four bedrooms sleeps two, and has its own wet-room bathrooms. The property is split over four floors, and has two large, bright roof terraces, with a kitchen and bar – perfect for outside dining looking out across the rooftops of the ancient medina. There are also two large lounge rooms with fireplaces and comfy chairs.  

ADDITIONAL FEATURES  

There is a selection of books and DVDs (for those who bring their laptop). However, there is no TV in the house. Towels are provided, but not beach towels. The kitchen is fitted with all modern appliances, including a gas range cooker, fridge freezer and washing machine.  

AROUND  

Essaouira is southern Morocco’s favorite beach town, located within a few hours of Marrakech. Unlike the big city, Essaouira is laidback and timeless with sandy-colored ramparts, whitewashed avenues, French-style piazzas, and a port full of azure blue fishing boats.  

The medina, a Unesco World Heritage Site, and the beautiful fishing harbor are great places to explore; both have a great selection of restaurants. There is a stunning sandy beach within a 10-minute stroll from the house, which is great for kite- and windsurfing. Other potential adventures include camel rides to the famous crumbling fort Bordj El Berod.  

The house manager will meet guests on arrival, take them on a short tour of the medina and can help arrange excursions.  

LOCATION  

Essaouira, Morocco. Nearest airport: Essaouira (20mins drive); Marrakech (2.5hrs drive). Owners can organise taxis for both.  

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Climate-wise, spring and autumn are the best times of the year to visit Morocco, although summer is Essaouira is pleasantly hot. Winter can be chilly, especially at night. The Gnaoua World Music festival, Essaouira’s biggest annual event, is held for three days, every June – early booking is recommended.
