Welcome to Essaouira, the former Mogador, a remarkable example of a preserved fortified port town from the 17th century. Its Medina has kept its authenticity which gives it a unique charm and its justified reputation which goes further than just the Moroccan borders. What we are proposing is to soak up its unique ambiance by staying in a traditional riad. What’s best about this trip : the discovery of what lies beyond the beaten tracks of Essaouira…

Just next to the hotel, nestled in a cedar forest, a day of 'well-being and organic discovery' will be on offer.

You can even visit all-female cooperatives where goat's cheese is made. You'll return to your Riad at the end of the day.

VILLA MAROC accommodation
'Villa Maroc' gave the tone to the concept named 'Riad' and the rest of Morocco followed suit. Built in the heart of the Medina of Essaouira on the site of the former notable residence of the Mogador, the Villa Maroc has kept the architectural heritage and the conviviality intact. Tradition and modernity have taken second place to the harmony of the shapes and colours in the image of a beautiful work of art which is jealously guarded by the large Atlantic castle which is Essaouira-Mogador. The quality of your stay will tower above that of a luxurious hotel.
