“This is THE place to stay near Essaouira, complete dream house”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This house is very special. 5 individual bedrooms and a central living area, it's all on ground level but built into a hillside so the levels are constantly changing. The love and attention to details ooze out of every wall in this house, you really wont want to leave and will definately want to come back. I am coming back. The garden and swimming pool (which is sheltered from strong winds by its angle) face south over a sublime African landscape which stretches from the Atlas mountains where the sun rises in the East through the length of a gently undulating valley smattered with argan trees all the way to the Atlantic Ocean just a few hundred metres away where the sun sets in the West. And as you survey this scene small flocks of sheep, goats, donkeys, mules and camels meander lazily through it watched by Berber shepherds, men, women and children, some of them playing the flute... oh my gosh, you have to see it to believe it! You can walk freely down from the house into the fields in the valley and explore, you will come across tortoises in their natural habitats, birds with beautiful songs and colours, a small canyon which is a dried up river bed (much of the year) of spectacular crazy paving cracked earth which you can walk along and explore. Imaine will cook you pancakes for breakfast, orange slices with cinnamon, she cooks anything and everything and it all tastes wonderful. We hired a car (which Brigitte organised for us, as well as airport transfer from Marrakech) and hardly used it as we loved the house and its surroundings so much. The ocean is a quick 20 minute walk or a 2 hour explorative adventure along the canyon. You can walk 5 minutes to a local Argan oil co-operative. We also visited Essaouira which is utterly beautiful, with many opportunities to meet with local people and refine your bartering skills! We were a group of women travelling on our own and had not been to Africa before and we were a little worried but we felt completely safe and excited to explore. Brigitte looks after you brilliantly, she will organise anything for you or point you in the right direction. If you look at Essaouira for its temperatures, even though this is only 20k south it is a good 5 degrees warmer and not as windy.
