Located in the heart of the Essaouira hills, sheltered from the high winds in a magnificent natural setting formed over millennia by the Ksob Oued (river), the Jardin des Douars is a beautiful guest ksar (palace) dedicated to lovers of nature, authenticity, simplicity and kindness.

We had a wonderful week relaxing here, enjoying the beautiful gardens, sunbathing, swimming and reading in the peace of the 'quiet pool' and eating in the excellent restaurant. The hotel is made by the charming staff, who always have time to chat and for whom nothing is too

We had such a lovely time here. The staff looked after us beautifully, the food was great and the family pool kept the kids entertained for hours. The adult pool is set away from the family pool and is a peaceful haven. I'd recommend it for a family or couple's break.

Hello, The nearest airport is Essaouira airport ESU, 15 minutes ride from the hotel (a taxi is 175 MAD). There is a direct flight from London Luton (Easyjet) twice a week (Tuesday, Saturday). You can also fly to Marrakech airport RAK (direct flights everyday from everywhere), and ask us to organize your transfer with a taxi (2h30 ride, 750 MAD). We wish you a lovely evening!

As Sherrydarling has said, the hotel has a vehicle that can be booked (usually the day before) for a drop-off & pick-up service. From memory it's about 175 dirham for the two-way service. Their driver was on time for the pick-up and drove carefully.

Hello, From Casablanca, you can take a train to Marrakech (3 hours) and then a bus to Essaouira (3 hours). Then we can arrange a taxi to collect you in Essaouira to Le Jardin des Douars (125 MAD for a 4 places standard taxi, 175 MAD for a 8 places air-conditioned minibus (15 minutes). We can also arrange a transfer direct from Casablanca by standard 4 places taxi (1.600 MAD) or by air-conditioned 8 places minibus (2.400 MAD). It will take around 4 hours. If you have any other questions; please let us know, we will answer with pleasure. I wish you a beautiful afternoon! Kindest regards, Nanie, Camille, Grégoire & toute l'équipe du Jardin des Douars

Nous vous souhaitons une belle soirée! Bien cordialement, Toute l'équipe du Jardin des Douars
