Our stay at Villa Gonatouki was by far the most relaxing part of our trip to Morocco. Bruno and his team are incredible hosts and they labor to make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. As previous reviews have mentioned, the house and the property are

Perched on a rise off a rather bumpy track from the main road into Essaouira this is a gem of a place. It looks a bit like a rather squat castle and appears old but that’s part of its charm. It’s te a new build but designed to look ancient and authentic and fit in well with

Thank you very much Andrew for your so nice and poetic review. I love your description of the house. That's exactly that : we wanted to look ancient and be authentic having in the same time the modern comfort. If you feel at home when you are on the spot, that's perfect. There are a lot of places to be relax and that the minimum because so many people have a speedy life. Our cooks thank you and they are proud of what you wrote. Time does not exist here, our guests do what they want when they want. There are many activities on the spot so it's possible to be activ or leasy. Your were wonderful guests and now you belong to the Gonatouki Family. We hope to see you again soon. We wish you all the best for the future. The team and Bruno

Thank you so much Tobias for your very kind review. You are a wonderful couple and your 3 daughters are fantastic, always happy and smiling! We are happy you appreciated the Villa with its many possibilities. Yes it's pleasant to have meals at different places and to have different places to stay, read, play... You are right, one of our stenghts is the quietness. It's so peaceful... But the most important here is our guests. They have an open mind and when they arrive here they are ready to take good time. You are a good example of that and for us that's wonderful. We hope to see you soon, longer this time. You are in our heart. The team and Bruno

This beautiful quiet villa was a perfect retreat. We were the only people staying and so received a complementary room upgrade. We are travelling on a budget and so were only staying for one night but the owners were very kind to allow us to have a very extended check in and

Thank you very much Charlotte for this very nice review. We love to welcome young romantic couples. When people leaves late we have always a solution, it's so relax to stay under the sun at the swimming pool! You are right, the house is a good combination between space and Moroccon style. That's true, all the guests like to go on the roof at night to see the stars because we have no light pollution. All over the world with taxis you never know. So it's better to use those we selected. We really hope to welcome you again, longer this time. We wish you all the best for the futur. Bruno

Excellent hospitality, food, and amenities. Perfect for an unplugged relaxing getaway-though there is blazing fast internet available. Bruno and his staff are unforgettable. From recommendations, transportation, and conversation- I felt like I was visiting family!

Thank you very much Bharath for your kind review. The Villa Gonatouki is traditional and we have also modern technology, for example optic fiber. So many people need to stay in touch with their business! Faster (so shorter) it is, better it is. There are many things to do here and in the same time it's possible to stay relax and don't do anything. That's why it's interesting to give you recommendations and let you choose. You live far from us but if you come back to Morocco we'll be very happy to see you again. Very king Regards Bruno
