    In the 19th century, Essaouira was the first seaport of Morocco and numerous diplomatic and trade representations were established here by European powers.

    The Brazilian Consulate is owned by the Gelpke family (Swiss winemakers operating in Tuscany) and is within the walls of the ancient medina. The suburbs are constantly growing but this does not influence the timelessness of the narrow and busy streets of the old town.

    20m from the Skala and with a dramatic sea view from its split level terrace, the Consulat Brézilien in on the corner of one of the medina’s main streets by the fortified sea walls. The spacious and luminous central courtyard, covered by a skylight and flanked by arches, has an otherworldly quality. The recent restoration work has returned the building to its origina...

I first discovered this place in my teens, over 15 years ago, and have been privileged enough to get to know the wonderfully charming and efficient owner and have come back many times- most recently for a grand family occasion last year with over 20 guests of all ages spread between this and their other property around the corner.
