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 a lift but there is a local shop that you can buy essentials from just down the track.
Didier and Bernadette are the perfect hosts and the Villa is gorgeous with a lovely warm pool. They have 26 years culinary experience each and they cooked for us every night, 3 courses for 18 euros and they have a large wine list. We had Thresher Shark, Hake, Salmon, Shrimps and Turbot, as well as amazing tarts,ice creams and pastries.
We chilled out for 5 days, sunbathing, swimming and reading but there are lots of other activities. If you want to be more energetic Didier can organise 4WD trips, Horse Riding, Golf etc all you need to do is ask.
It was a real pleasure staying with them and we will be back, we stayed in The Atlas Spa for 4 days before we stayed at Villa Daba and Didier and Bernadette beat The Atlas hands down.
Stay with them and you will not be disappointed, I promise you
