Let me first say you do not need to have a hire car to stay here as it's an 80 dirham taxi ride to Essaouira(9 Kms away) and it's the turn off by The Tagine Cafe on the main road and a few Kms down a bumpy track. Didier drives into town everyday and he is happy to give you... More

Villa Daba is a really special place. Didier and Bernadette have made it an absolutely beautiful place to spend time. They have fantastic taste, their welcome is warm, the place is spotlessly clean and the pool is superb. The breakfast is good and you can choose to pay 18 euros for a superb 3 course dinner with wine extra. We... More

The owners we lovely Didier spoke little English but we always managed to communicate effectively so that was not an issue. The food was delicious and breakfast was great too.... More
