Essaouira camps - Villa Maroc
Villa Maroc was Essaouira’s original stylish riad, seen in tens of fashion shoots from the 1990s on, its backdrop all archways, pretty courtyards and mosaic floors. Think cool and the kaftan. Nothing has changed, with the reception rooms and numerous private corners set around the first courtyard and the elegant rooms around the larger second courtyard, where breakfasts are taken under the hanging plants.
Home cooked Moroccan dinners are served in the more elegant rooms at the front, candlelit tables are set up in corners so dining is private and very romantic, while drinks can be taken with your book to the huge roof terrace overlooking the rooftops. The location of the Villa Maroc couldn’t be closer to the action, as it’s just 30 metres from the Place Moulay Hassan.
The villa, originally four 18th Century riads has been restored in arabo-andalusian style and now has 21 rooms and suites. The superior rooms and suites have fireplaces and some have private roof terraces. Other facilities include a hammam and internet access (internet is chargeable). This is an ideal riad for a family as there are three suites which can accommodate up to four people.
It is perhaps not suitable for those with any walking difficulties as it is a network of narrow stone stairways. Cars can drive you to within a 5 minute walk of the riad, from where a man and a cart for luggage escort you to the front door.
