My husband have been many times in Essaouira over the course of more than 30 years since the end seventies. This town has become more and more popular and still has managed to maintain its unique charm, being a town with a somehow very Mediterranean feel (maybe due to the pure coloring in white and blue) with distinctive Arab/Moroccan elements. This was the first time we didn't stay in the town but decided to take the villa Gonatouki, which is about 12 km from the town border, easily reachable by car.
The villa is simply lovely, very well dimensioned and will never make you feel that you're in a hotel but rather in a very big country villa with plenty of space - whether you're looking for places to eat or to simply hang out (indoors and outside), whether it's in your own area (ok, we had a suite, which comprised 3 big rooms and a bathroom including two terraces for our own utilization).
And than there's the owner - Bruno. A very gentle and attentive host, who will do anything to make you feel at home right from the beginning until the minute we've left. We felt very much at home and enjoyed his advice and recommendations, which were always great. Bruno is a guy who doesn't only understand what hospitality means but he lives it, you feel it's part of his self understanding and he enjoys it.
