3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Dar Nicola is situated in a prime location down a lovely,quiet, quaint street in the heart of Essaouira's medina. Yet once inside the door the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. It is perfect situated to visit the busy souks selling jewellery, spices, carpets, fresh food and moroccan artefacts.

Our house is set over 3 floors. We have 3 bedrooms-2 double and 1 twin bedded. Two open plan landing areas, with a large living/dining room, 1 bathroom with WC/shower and 1 WC. On the top floor is a fully equipped kitchen with French windows opening out onto the first of 2 private terraces both which have panoramic views of the sea, hills and medina where you can sunbathe or enjoy watching the sun go down with a relaxing glass of wine. We provide all bedding and towels and Samira our cleaner visits each day to clean.
