Me and my mum stayted here for a week in July, and it could not have been more perfect.

The Domaine is situated near Essaouira, around 15 minutes drive, at the end an unpaved road. But you do not need a 4 wheel drive. And it is worth! You will find a paradise, nice houses in a beautiful garden. The houses are widely spread in the garden, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. We were lucky to have a... More

My two grown up daughters and I spent a very relaxing long weekend and are so pleased we chose this destination. We took advantage of the airport transfer (15 Euros) which may seem a lot but worth it for the convenience of letting someone else find his way down the very bumpy track to the hotel! On arrival we were... More

This facility is a very unique design, it consists of 10 very large villas set well apart from each other in a heavily treed compound, with a swimming pool and dining complex in the middle. Each villa has between 3 and 5 bedrooms. Guests can rent the entire villa (suitable for a family, or a group of friends), or just... More
